The fan in the freezer could be hitting built up ice if the defrost system isn't working properly. Either fan will make noise if it's going bad. The fan cuts off because the door is open. You can hold the door switch down to keep it running so you can tell why it's making the noise. Remove the cover on the back of the side that's making the noise. It should spin freely when you spin it.

The purple lit filter is telling you it's probably time to change the filter. If you need more help with that you can look in the manual or post your model number and I'll try to find diagrams for you.

Suddenly making noise from above the refrigerator behind the vent


Almost certainly there is an ice build up which has eventually migrated to the fan blade. Do a 12 hour defrost to ensure a proper "defrost", then try again. Very possible the door was left open slightly by accident.

Frig is driving me crazy---weird noise and no ice!!


That might be the fan. Making that noise, because fan stops when you open the freezer. The ice maker might be a totally diffrent problem. The solenoid may not be opening to let the water in, which is usually cause by a bad solenoid.

Freezer frost buildup; fan constantly running; water filter


Just had mine repaired. Tech told me that the tempearature settings on the display panel are not EXACT science. The fridge is cooled by blowing air from the freezer to the fridge and when the sensor in fridge reached approx desired temperature, the damper is closed.

The noise you hear periodically (water dripping) is the heating rod melting the defroster (hence frost freeze), which unfortunately sometimes spills into the blower motor to fridge, causing frozen motor, causing the infamous ER FF error code and fridge failure.

I reluctantly had LG to do the energy saver fix (recall) and it replace everything that the internet users are complaining about.

GE Profile making knocking noises at different times


I have the GE profile Refrigerator with ice maker in the refrigerator compartment. Mine was knocking loudly for long periods of time, so I finally removed the icemaker by removing the side panel in the icemaker compartment held with 1 phillips head screw, disconnecting the electrical plug (unclip), pulling the tab of the icemaker down (on top) and sliding it toward the door, thus removing it. There was ice frozen in the motor compartment that was the problem. I let it thaw out and re-installed. All was OK after that..

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!

Freezer section evaporator fan motor bearing are going out. This would be indicted by a high pitched squealing noise. Have the fan motor replaced and it should solve your problem.
