The fan is making a weird noise and when i open the door it stops but when it stops in makes a loud noise and the temp on the fridge wont stay down but the freezer is fine what is the problem


You have a twin cooling unit and the refrigerator fan is getting clogged up with ice possibly due to a defrost problem. You will need to remove the back wall panel of the refrigerator to access the evaporator fan motor and clean it out of the excess ice buildup. Check the defrost circuits and also the defrost drain to make sure it's clear.

My refrigerator side is not cooling well. I see ice behind the fan unit when I take out the veggie drawers at bottom. Also fan on fridge side is making lots of noise. Noise stops when I open the door and...


.When you open the door freezer door will get stopped and so, no sound. It will work only when door is closed. Fan sound comes due to malfunction of defrost. If defrost does in right time it won't happens. Unplug and let fridge get defrost all icing. After 3 to 4 hrs,start run again, and set temp @ 5degree freezer. It will start cooling fridge compartment also. But, this is a temerory solution. To solve permanently, find out why defrost not functioned properly?
Follow this steps.
Check defrost timer working which is back of the refrigerator down corner. By with small tip screw driver in some models located in the ceiling of the fresh foodsection or behind the cold control cover. In the defrost timer,slowly turn the screw like wheel in the middle of the defrost timer withstraight screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. Now it's in defrost. If thedefrost heater(s) starts, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. Ifthe heater(s) does not start, unplug wire cord to check ohm test for continuityof heater. If continuity is there, plug cord wire which gives power 120volts(check specification) to heater. If heater no starts, bypass defrost thermostatby join the 2 wires in the defrost thermostat. If the heater now comes on,replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad,replace it. Thanks and hope helpful.

My fridge freezer made by samsung is on the blink


These fridges have an evaporator fan motor on both sides - the freezer and fridge side. The freezer can maintain it's temperature because that fan is working fine. I had the same problem, and replaced the evaporator fan motor on fridge side, and it solved the problem. Also, if your fan motor is not working well, or stops working, the evaporator is prone to ice build up, and will prevent proper cooling. You may want to open up panel on fridge side and see if that's the case. Taking a blow dryer to the evaporator and surrounding area (while fridge is off), or letting it sit for a few hours might solve the problem. Ultimately though, it appears as if these fan motors are prone to failure, and need to be replaced.

Not sure if you have one or two problems, so need to be systematic. From what you say it seems you have a defrost heater problem.
Here is how I would start:
- Get a service manual for your fridge.
- Make sure you are not running the fridge in "sales" mode
- Run a self test of the unit (as described in the manual).
- Based on results, unplug the fridge and remove cover of the electronic compartment
- Remove the connector of the heater units.
- Measure the resistance of each heater to see if they are all good.
- If this is the case re-plug the connector and plug the fridge
- Using "force mode" described in the manual turn the heaters on and measure voltage on the respective connector.... this will tell you if board and built-in relays are good.

This should give you a good start of where the problem is.
Note than when in force mode you can also force the compressor to run in different modes and measure the related voltages. If the above does not get any hint, then moce your troubleshooting that way.

Good luck!
