The fan shuts off while the door is open, so that is why is quiets down when you open the door. I hope this helps locate the noise. If I can assist you further, please let me know. I an help you with the defrost problem if there is frost building up.

Thank You, Vic

My Viking Freezer is three years old. The problem is the constant roaring sound it makes. No one can sit in my kitchen, family room or living room for very long before the noise from this freezer gets on...

There are several fans on your unit one on the top with the compressors, one inside the freezer, and one at the bottom. If you open the freezer and the noise gets louder or stops then you know it is the evaperater fan. Sometimes the bearings start to go and they make louder noise. Also check on the back wall for frost you could have a frosting problem and the fan blade is hitting on the ice

Top section not working

If there is a lot of frost build up on the back wall of the freezer section you are having a defrost problem and the coils behind that wall are filling up with ice restricting air flow and letting fan blades hit it. If not a lot of frost the evap fan motor is going bad which is also located behind the freezer wall. Good luck.

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.

09 recall now it won't stop running

If it won't stop running then it should be too cold. If it isn't then you are having either a frosting problem that is usually indicated by frost build-up on the back inside wall of the freezer, or you have something else going on which could be fans, one in freezer, one at compressor, bad pumping in the compressor, or loss of refrigerant(gas). Check for the frost and listen for the fans or air movement in back then you will probably have to call a technician. Good luck, AJ
