Check product storage and move any product that may be keeping the freezer door from closing properly. Vibrating noise could be from frost build-up in the area of the fan.

Replace fan motor


Hello Theresa;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number which is located on a label on the upper liner side wall in your fresh food section. So, I do not know what you have.

There are several reasons your fresh food section is not cooling:

1.) Cooling air vent from freezer to fresh food section. Find the air vent, put your hand in front of it, do you feel any air flow? This vent may be iced up or closed.
2.) Freezer cooling coils iced up - Look at the back wall of your freezer, is there frost or ice on the wall? You may have a bad defrost heater.
3.) Cooling coil fan - Open the freezer door do you hear the fan? Push in on the light switch, do you hear the fan?

Get back to me.

I have a frigidaire LFTR1814LB. It has been leaking water from the freezer into the refrigerator section for about a month. A couple days ago it started making an obnoxiously loud vibrating sound...


Check if any piece of ice is stucked in thw vent and also check the thermostat of the refrigerator! When you close both doors you should hear the sound of the vent going fast

I have samsung french door refrigerator 2 door 2 drawer with vibrating a noise. I have removed the back panel and the noise does not seem to be cominng from this area. any suggestions.


We have a different model Samsung, and I've heard a vibrating or buzzing noise twice. First, if the water filter isn't an exact fit (even Samsung's filters rattle), it will rattle. Second, if either of the ice makers gets stuck or jammed, it can make a vibrating noise. If our freezer drawer isn't making a good seal, ice will build up under the drawer or in the slides. Ours makes more of a humming noise, when this happens. Other areas to check: something stuck in the runner of your drawers or shelves (if yours pull out). There are also vents that draw air in and out of the cooling unit, and things in front of them may vibrate or rattle, too.

The feezer side is making a loud noise and will not stop. it seems to still be cooling just fine on both sides. thier is no burning smell or anything. i tried dissconnecting the ice maker and that did...


From what you're describing it sounds like the freezer fan motor is causing the noise you hear. The freezer fan is the only moving part in the freezer section. I recommend replacing the freezer fan motor & fan blade together. If there is ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer then the sound is likely from the fan blade hitting the ice and you will need to defrost the unit.

It's makin loud noise for a period of an hour then it stops also drips water freezes food on the upper shelf and lower drawer


The sound that you hear is the blower that is covered with ice. because of a very low temperature. Adjust the temperature to a warmer setting to fix the problem.

Our side by side GE Refrigerator feezer is defrosting and the refridge side is barely cool. The fridge is only three years old. what should I do?


Look at the back wall inside the freezer from the middle down, if you see frost evenly on the back wall then the Defrost system has failed.

Posible fixes, Defrost limiter, Conttrol board bad, Heater Bad, Defrost timer bad.

if you did see the frost you could buy some time by defrosting the evaperator with a hair dryer. (( if you dont know what your doing the please call a appliance repair tech ))

The upper portion of the freezer turns off, causing the ice to melt. And the cooler side bottom drawer turns into a freezer. I can't figure out what's going on.


You have a frost blocked evaporator. Translation: The cooling coils, located behind the back wall inside the freezer section, have plugged up with frost (usually caused by a burnt out defrost heater, located at the bottom of these coils) which prevents the cold air from circulating inside the freezer, and into the top of the fresh foods section. At the same time, this blocked air flow allows very cold air at the bottom of the freezer section to migrate back into the bottom of the fresh foods section, and thus freeze item in the bottom bins of the refrigerator. Unload the freezer, take the shelves out and remove the back panel. Melt the frost with a hair blower, and change out the heater at the bottom.
