Depress the door switch for the fan and light and the light should go out and the fan motor should run. If the fan motor does not run but only hums it may need to be replaced.

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.

Humming sound? motor or fan constantly running


Hi, It is the evaporator fan motor you are hearing. The motor is the only thing that shuts off when the door is open. The fan motor is located behond the rear panel inside the freezer sections.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

this is a design fault on the appliance normally caused by the failure of the element and built up of ice around the circulating fan (the humming is the fan motor trying to turn ) youll find that if you defrost it it will work for a little while and then ice up again the need to replace a panel inside the fridge modified and a couple of sensors and poss the heater element
