You have a defrost problem happening. Either defrost timer, defrost t-stat or defrost heater.

Model FPI152TS Fan


If it is frost free? the door may have been left open, and warm air taken in, This in turn creates frost to form around fan, Best thing to try is, Empty it, switch it off, and leave doors open for couple of hours! this will defrost any ice or frost build up.

We have a e381t model refridgerator/freezer. there is a rattle/scraping noises coming from the fan in the freezer part. There is ice behind the protective sheet that separate the fan from the main area. Is...



If there is noise of the fan rubbing with the frost build up on the freezer then it is confirmed that the defrost timer is faulty. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

Frigidaire side by side freezer - LOUD noise...


It sounds like the evaporator fan is hitting ice that is built up on the evaporator coil. When it's making the noise, open the freezer door and see if it stops.
(Most models are wired so that the evaporator fan cuts off when the freezer door is open.)
Check the inside back, lower panel of the freezer for ice built up or frost on it. If there is, you have a defrost problem that is most likley a bad heater. It's located around the coil inside the freezer behind the panel you will be looking at. The defrost problem would explain the freezer not freezing ice cream.

Buzzing sound


If noise stops when you open the door, you may have a noisy fan (or could have ice build up, causing fan blade to hit ice and cause noise). I gather it is a frost-free model ie has a fan in the freezer compartment. If noise is caused by fan hitting ice build up, you may have a problem with the auto defrost system, as you should not get ice build up in a frost free.
Noise stops when you open door because fan turns off when door is opened.

Fan noise in freezer of my GE side-by-side refridgerator


You don't have to worry about the ice and frost, Your heater does that for you Your heater comes on and defrost every day. You just need to tighten the screws and clean up the vent where the noise is coming from but I wouldn't worry about it. The temperature on your fridge and freezer is running optimal, You know the saying, if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it....just tap the vent covers every few days.

Freezer fan is very noisy


What knid of a noise is it making. A high pitched squeal tells me the bearings in the motor are bad and you need to replace the fan motor obtainable through a dealer. If the noise is more of a grinding noise it could be a simple mater of the fan blade hitting some ice build-up. Defrosting the area of the fan motor with a hair dryer will melt the ice.
