Question about Samsung Refrigerators
If it has not it will soon quit all together.
Take the panel at the bottom of the fridge side off, it is behind the drawers. Remove the drawers and shelves and all the phillips screws on the bottom part of the panel, not the top one that attaches to the light, just the bottom one. You will have to remove the two screws on the water line or squiggly white thing on the bottom to loosen up the panel above it. Unplug the two wires and Pull the panel out or lean it forward and take the 5 screws out to remove the fan and motor. Take the spring off the fan and pull it out of the shaft. Unscrew and remove the cover off the fan motor and replace the motor.
Some say you can oil the fan motor, but it will just collect dust ruin it. Mine made a noise for 3 or 4 days before it went out.

SOURCE: loud fan noise
HI. Just so you know, Hissing and popping is normal on frost free refrigerators, it is the defrost heater, in this case. I would check these following areas to address any other abnormal noises.
If the level of the unit is not adjusted to proper specs, this will create an unstable operating condition, causing many noises to emit from the units structure. inspect the unit for proper level. adjust if needed. Next will be the drain pan. Once removed for cleaning, the pan must be replaced in position correctly. If not, the pan will rattle against the compressor, causing a ping or rattle.Simply reposition the tray if this is the case. The third possible issue will be the condenser fan. The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it. This fan has a shroud, and if the fan blade becomes warped, it will rub against the shroud, causing noise. This fan blade is whole,and it can be removed and replaced if this is the case. Ok, the fourth problem spot will be the evaporator fan.
The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace it. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged.
Last, i would move on to the compressor mounts. This is the most common spot for noise overtime. The compressor sits on rubber mountings. Those rubber mountings are designed to absorb vibration from the compressor. As the mountings age, they can become hard or disintegrate. When this happens, the compressor vibration is transmitted to the refrigerator structure and it can cause noise.
The compressor is located in the rear. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to get to the compressor.
Locate the compressor and remove the screw or retaining clip of just one of the compressor mounts.Using a pry bar, lift up the compressor enough to slip out the rubber mount. Inspect the mount for deterioration. The rubber should be firm but not rigid. If the mount is crumbling or hard, it should be replaced.
This concludes the inspection procedure. Follow carefully, and replace any failed or damaged device.

Hey friend, thank you for your post!
I understand that you are hearing a loud fan noise when your icemaker is on inside of your Frigidaire refrigerator. You could be hearing the evaporator fan or the condenser fan pushing air into your appliance, this is a normal operating noise. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
