Question about Samsung CoolTech Plus / Basic Bottom Mount Refrigerator SR-L676EV

1 Answer

My frig, which is only about 3 years old, makes a "whistling" sound sporatically. I'm guessing it needs cleaning somewhere, but don't know what to check. Can you help? OOps, it's NOT a Samsung.

That whisteling sound is what we call "Ghosting". To get rid of this sound one needs to put more gas into the system, but more gas will create the suction pipe to frost up and reducing the gas level will create less cooling. Basically. leave it and live with it. Whirlpool used to be a prominent fridge for this sound. No harm is created only the sound appears while running.

What is a whistling noise behind the dashboard?

Many controls are activated by a vacuum line from the engine. My wild guess there is a slit or bad connection somewhere on the way to the control system. Good ears or "hearing horn" should help you find the sound source.

My 2000Avalon has a high pitched whistle. Sounds like it is coming from somewhere around the air intake?????

I'd guess you have some rubber hoses deteriorated and or off so Air is rushing in the gaps. Check all small rubber tube around the air intake up to and near the engine. I would guess all need to be replaced. Cheap insurance against failure at a bad time.

most likely a fan, disconnect the case fans one at a time and you should find it that way.

I have a 2001 Chrysler Town & Country Minivan. When turning the wheel either way, the car makes a horrible grinding noise and the steering wheeling makes a whistling noise at the same time.

i don,t know what the whistling noise is but it sounds like your cv joints may need to be looked at. the bearings in the cv joint maybe going bad.

Refrigerator light is on but it's not getting cold

Yes, I can help you. (If you like).But you will need to answer a few questions. For example was the freezer and refrigerator doors left closed for all that time with out allowing the moisture inside to escape and not cause the controls to rust or short out. Let me know and rate me if I am helpful, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Samsung Frig noise

the soiund that you hear is probebly one of the fan motors. Have ypou ever cleaned the condenser coil on this refrigerator like your suppose to do? take the back poanel off and with a long brush that you can get at Home Depot clean off the coils in the back and the fan blade then vaccum it all out. Be sure to replace the panel when your done because if oyu don't the fan will npot pull the air across the coils right.

Side by side makes a whistling sound--Model RS2630

I have the same frig-- The sound is coming from the litttle fan behind the frid. Take the bottom silver cover off and you will see the fan in a plactic white frame thing. Unplug it and then put a little oil inside the fan motor-- (oil based solvent). You may have to take it out of the plastic frame. To get the oil into the motor really good. Just use some 3 in 1 oil or wd-40. You will probably have to repeat this every couple of months. But it gets rid of that awful nosie. I also found that if you give the frig more air to circulate than the oil will last longer. Meaning don't put the frig so close to the wall. Oh please remember to unplug the frig first. I hope this helps.

Whistleing sound on golf gt tdi

It's probably the turbo you're hearing. They spin very fast and make a noise like that. Ever hear an 18-wheeler go by you and accelerate and they make that high-pitched whistle? That's the turbo spooling up. Now, if it sounds like a dentist's drill, that's usually a sign that the turbo is failing, but I'd bet that since your car is under four years old, as long as you've kept up on the maintenance, it's the normal turbo spool.

Samsung RSE8KPUS noise

I have worked on refrigerators for 30 years but never worked on a Samsung. This is a WILD and I do mean WILD guess at what the noise may be. Don't use this information to attempt a repair but just to track where noise may be coming from.
There is a motorized damper door that opens and closes between the freezer section and the refrigerator section. My guess is that that damper assembly is what is making this noise. I can not tell you why it may be making this noise except that if is making the noise it probably is going bad. Remember this is just a guess and you will need to locate the damper assembly in order to try to pinpoint the origin of the sound. Your recording was wonderful and I wish more people in my everyday job would use their heads like you. I hope this sheds some light on the problem. Remember I am just guessing, don't spend money till you are able to verify cause.
Seems there would be a 1 year warranty on the frig.
