Hi

Check to see if bottom freezer has not iced over, the back panel at rear of freezer has a small fan in it to circulate air and if the freezer coil in frozen /iced over the fan will hit the coil making loud noise. Fan is supposed to stop when the door is opened . Noise from the fan could be a bearing problem if it is a high pitched squeal. If this is the condition you have, replacing the evaporator fan should correct the problem. If the fan is sounding like a buzz-saw the fan blade could be pushed in to far on its shaft or it could be hitting an ice build-up in the blade turning area.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

GE Side by Side Refrig - loud noise behind the ice maker section Model PSS25SGMB BS


it sounds like the evaporator fan blade is hitting some ice that has built up around the blades i have seen this happen a lot on g.e. SxS lately,if you can remove the ice maker and dispenser you can see the fan blade,if you dont want to do this then shut down the refrigerator and leave freezer door open and heat it carefully with a hairdrier to speed the process up to melt this ice then restart it and the noise should be gone

We have a Samsung Model number RS2530BBP that the freezer is making a loud buzzing noise. It only stops when you open the freezer door.


It sounds like the solenoid which opens the ice dispenser door or works the cubed/crushed ice part of the ice dispenser is stuck. Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.
Check you model number as that one doesn't match any. Here are some close matches. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/modelsearch.aspx?model=RS2530BBP

You can see diagrams of yours if you find it.

food defrosting,it worked for me and only took about 10 mins.

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.

Both the refrigerator and freezer are set to the recommended temperature, however, the refrig unit is making a loud humming sound. This sound stops when you open the door, but begins again when it is...


There is a fan that blows cold air into the refrigerator. It usually stops when the door is opened. Check to see if it might be frozen with ice if the humming sounds abnormally loud. Usually if it freezes up you cannot hear the fan running and the refrigerator will not get cold enough.

My GE side-by-side refrigerator is making a fairly loud ticking sound--about once every second-sounds like a big clock.


Water line to ice maker is frozen. Thaw out freezer. Put food in dry ice cooler and open freezer door, reset to OFF, and thaw freezer for four hours. It'll work after that.

Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water


Look up through the ice despencer on the front door of the freezer. Is the flapper door open? If so it needs to be fixed. If its not then try leaving the freezer door open for 3+ hours to defrost the frozen line in the door. If that doesnt work, the water valve must be changed.(located behind fridge, take off back cord board panel at bottom, the valve is blue)... GOODLUCK!
