It could be worn out with bad bearing. Fan motor would need to be replaced.
The evaporator could be blocked up with ice because of defrost failure and the fan hitting the ice.

Sounds like your evapartor fan is going out? This is located inside the plastic shell inside your freezer.

Freezer is making a loud noise, assume when compressor is on. Pretty much as soon as the door is opened, the noise begins. Things are still frozen inside.


inside the compressor body there are springs which sometimes break and allow the
motor to knock against the outer enclosure. There is no fix for this as the system is
sealed, short of replacing the compressor. Not a problem with operation, but quite
distracting.
On another note, if the freezer compartment is beginning to freeze up or the fan
blade was installed too far back on the shaft, this could also cause noise.
(it will only make the sound in the freezer compartment when the fan is running
if this is the case). Hope this helps.

I have a kenmore side by side refrigerator freezer. It's about 15 years old. Recently the freezer has started making a loud humming noise. HELP


Good day,
The most common reason for noise is the fan motor in the freezer compartment.
Remove the screws from the rear panel in the freezer compartment and inspect the fan motor. Replacing it is a fairly easy nuts and bolts procedure. The motor should be available at most appliance parts houses.
kenmore is a trade name for Sears appliances. It was made by either Whirlpool or Frigidaire.

My LG ice maker fan is making a really loud noise right after the water stops going in


Hello, Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move air through the freezer and refrigerator compartment. This fan runs when ever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:
  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall,near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.
  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.
  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, half way up or near the top.
Overtime the fan may become noisy, usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.
To find out if the fan is causing the noise,just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches, if the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.
There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor(if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).
Thanks

I am getting a loud noise from the freezer compartment of my older, Kenmore refrigerator.


The noise may be a failing evaporator fan, but it's more likely to be ice that has accumulated around the fan and the fan blades are hitting it.

You will need to access the fan behind the cover in the freezer to check this out. The unit should be off so the blades aren't moving when you check.

Freezer section evaporator fan motor bearing are going out. This would be indicted by a high pitched squealing noise. Have the fan motor replaced and it should solve your problem.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Thanks,
Bill

The compressor behind the fridge should cycle on and off as the machine maintains temperature, but the evaporator fan inside the freezer will keep running, except when the fridge goes into defrost. If the noise is coming from the fan inside the freezer, there could be some ice on the frame of the fan and the blades are touching the ice. If the noise is coming from behind the fridge it could be the condensor fan motor. This fan is situated behind the fridge in front of or next to the compressor. It keeps the condensor cool by blowing air onto it. Check this fan. The blades could be touching the pipework or something.
