Not sure if it happens with this brand but I know others have a problem with ice build up that can interfere with the fan. If you can remove the back panel in the freezer section and take a look. If not try defrosting it for a couple of hours to see if it makes a difference.

Can I simply defrost freezer to solve a grinding noise that stops when I open fridge doors and gets louder when I open freezer doors?


Not knowing the type of Refrigerator, frost-free or cyclic-defrost-
My opinion is, the noise may be generated from the Fan in the Freezer -compartment,
It is mostly situated in the freezer, behind a removable panel at the rear wall, The panel has a grill, or is slotted to allow the cold air to flow.
The fan may be worn out.
You may hear a grinding or squealing sound.
The fan-blade may be touching (striking) something,
The blade may have moved along its shaft and strikes the housing.
It may strike solid ice ,
the ice can form, if there is a fault with the Automatic-Defrost.
You need to confirm if the fan blade rotates freely.
Do you know how to do that?

LG fridge making loud noise


Bonjour,

jeepers are we talking about a wheeze, a clunk, a whirr, a buzz, a rattle, a hum, random modulated or cyclic, low or high frequency, persistent or intermittent? Or could you just be hearing fan noise.
If it sounds like tin pieces clinking against something metallic. The fan blades may be striking ice or frost or the shroud.
Could be a bad or worn fan motor bearing, or a defrost problem causing frost build up.
Just a FYI
Some LG models have been reported online as having many many operating issues.

Hope this helps

When doors are opened it stops. Ice is forming unnaturally in the


It sounds like you may have a bad evaporator fan motor or broken blade.

Another cause could be a failed defrost system component. The would cause a build up of ice and frost and the fan blade could be coming in contact with the frost or ice.

The fan stops running when the doors are opened on this model to prevent the circulation of warm air.

Buzzing sound


If noise stops when you open the door, you may have a noisy fan (or could have ice build up, causing fan blade to hit ice and cause noise). I gather it is a frost-free model ie has a fan in the freezer compartment. If noise is caused by fan hitting ice build up, you may have a problem with the auto defrost system, as you should not get ice build up in a frost free.
Noise stops when you open door because fan turns off when door is opened.

Loud noise from freezer


Hi, The noise you are hearing is the evaporator fan motor.
Remove the rear panel in the freezer section and see if ice or frost is building up and hitting the fan blade.
If there is frost, you have a defrost problem that can be tested while you have the panel off.
Please let me know if I can assist you further on this issue.
Thanks

Rattle and Gurgling noises


It's the fan bouncing off the fan-motor housing. The best way to stop this is to shim the motor mount so the fan will ride with the motor shaft "out" preventing it from bouncing. When you raise the fridge on one corner you are doing the same thing the shim will accomplish.

The draining gurgling sound is probaby freezer defrost water being pushed down the drain tube into the drip pan at the bottom. The door action pushes/pulls air in the tube and pushes out water.

Whirlpool Fridge Making a rattling noise


There are 2 areas it could be in....The upper area where the evaporator fan is....or the lower area where the condenser fan is..
If it is in the freezer...when you open the door there should be a button that the door connects with that you can hold in manually to make the fan engage..and listen for the noise..the odds are if it were ice build up....your thumping the fridge would not make it stop ..since the thumping would not remove the Ice...it would continue to build up and the fan would eventually stop completely and everything would warm up. It could be a loose stap that holds evaporator lines in place or a motor mount that is loose ..

Or it could have to do with the condenser fan..where the compressor is.The compressor and condenser coil are located underneath the freezer section of your refrigerator. There is some tubing connecting the compressor to the condenser coil. There is also a condenser fan to cool the condenser. To access these parts the refrigerator has to be pulled away from the wall. If you pull the refrigerator out go slowly and watch the tubing that connects from the water valve on the back of the refrigerator to the water cut off at the wall.
Remove the power from the refrigerator. Remove the lower panel on the rear of the refrigerator. Look inside for anything loose. Locate the condenser fan motor and blade. These are the areas to stay away from when power is applied. Plug the refrigerator back in being careful to avoid the condenser fan motor and blade. Wear gloves to prevent burning yourself on the hot refrigerant lines and try touching tubing and lightly pushing and pulling to see if you can cause or stop the noise.
Generally a rattle or hum is caused by a refrigerant line touching part of the cabinet or base pan. If it is not repaired it may rub a hole in the refrigerant line causing the refrigerant to leak out. If you don't feel comfortable trying to correct it, you should schedule service and let a technician repair the refrigerator.

I hope this helps...please rate me ...thanks The Fang

Zanussi Electrolux frost free fridge/freezer - freezer defrosting


My husband left the freezer door open a couple of months ago, causing ice to form. The loud rattling noise was the fan hitting the ice. The reason why the temperature started to rise but the noise stopped was because the fan had got stuck in a block of ice and was no longer working. Simple solution - defrost the freezer for 24 hours. Touch wood, it is all working fine now!
