Question about Samsung Refrigerators
SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: FREEZER SOUNDS VERY NOISY
Fridge problem could be the fan is bad or that it is hitting ice. When the noise is kind of a buzzing like it is hitting ice...defrost your unit by unplugging and waiting a day or so for full melt out...then check your door gaskets for cleanliness and good seal.

take the cover off the fan in the freezer section and see if the fan blade is loose or hitting ice the blade just pushes on make sure the mountings are tight its probably the blade but you might need to replace the motor if i reamber correctly on the cover there is a screw at the bottom you remove then slide the cover up and its on hooks plastic hooks built on the cover ok

Dont know about the noise prob. but I can help with the over heating cabinet. Your condensing coil is dirty and needs cleaned. it is located under your refrigerator or behind the back panel. You should use a brush and vac. it out. Air must travel through the tubing freely in order to cool properly. It should be easy to find following the tubes coming out of your compressor.
