Samsun fridge - strange noise

I have a Samsung refridgerator marked RL38EBMS which is making a sound like an old lightig plant and the digital display output is reading "rd".

If I switch off and then on again, it runs for a moment, starts it's rough running sound and then shuts down into this "rd" mode.

I put my ear to the back panel and the noise is emmitting from about 30cms above the motor and electrics opening at the back.

Many thanks,
Steve

SOURCE: Noise from Deodorizer

Your defrost sensor is not working and is allowing a large build up of ice in the fan compartment situated behind the interior back panel (low down) in the fridge compartment. What you hear when you open the door is the fan slowing down (the fan is switched off because you opened the door) and the blades are striking the ice build up making a scraping noise which stops when the fan stops. Removing the inner panels (two, top & bottom) will allow you to get in to the fan area & then defrost manually. ( I use a wallpaper steamer which takes about five minutes to get rid of the ice) Note the topmost inner panel has a couple of electrical connectors to the interior lights which you must disconnect before you can remove the panel. The final solution is to replace the defrost sensor then sell it quick and buy a better designed fridge freezer!! VeloFellow

Unplug your unit and check the fan blade by manually rotating it with your finger, check if the blade is not touching the fan blade frame. Check if the screws are not loose, align the fan blade and re tight the fan blade screws.

SOURCE: Loud humming noise as fridge is running

My hot point freezer fan was making a variable hollowing sound as well. I talked to a repair guy and he mentioned that the bushings seem to wear out on the fan motor located under the ice maker. I ordered a new motor $82.70 and replaced it myself. Took about an hour to replace and it fixed the problem.

SOURCE: Fridge making loud screeching sounds

Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).

If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.

If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)

Good Luck!

An older fridge can make some strange noises. Mine sounds like wind blowing across a chimney.

A friend also complained his fridge sometimes sounded as though it was boiling. Someone told him to turn it upside down for a time and then right way up four 4 hours before switching on again.

He rang me thinking the guy was crazy but I told him I had heard something similar many years ago and in fact I had actually followed the instructions I was given and turned the fridge end-over-end a few times and restored it to health. My friend also seems to think his fridge sounds better...

These fridges go through all sorts of cycles, the defrost cycle is probably the noisiest, strange sounds are ok, it will tell you when something serious is wrong, alerts & alarms.

Samsung Cooltech fridge - type SR-52NXA - when working very strange noise coming from the fridge. The "pole" from air mixing flow system is not turning/spinning


Yes, I had this problem. $85 visit from a very condescending repair man located a piece of old hard cheese that had become wedged in and stopped the thing from turning - the noise had been terrible. Fixed in 2 minutes - embarrassment lasted much longer.

Fridge makes a fairly loud humming noise when I close the door


it sounds like your refridgerator might be unlevel try adjusting the legs all the way down to start then level to floor if that doesnt fix it its probably the rubber gromet under the compressor usually there is four of them if one comes out(usually after moving it makes your compressor vibrate you can use almost any gromet of of any junk refrigerator or if you want you can by original replacement parts at one of your local appliance dealer

How old is the fridge?

You did all the right things!!

But this sounds like a bad thermostat.
or a bad control switch.

Unfortunately it sounds like you may need service to do an hands on diagnoses and replacement of one of these parts I listed here!

There is a design problem with this model. The fridge section is icing over due to a design defect and the noise you can hear is due to the fan on the motor driving against the ice. Eventually the motor will be stopped from running and the fuse will blow in your plug. Contact Samsung and they should replace the defective parts with a fix.
