Question about Samsung Refrigerators
its a heater cycle problem..the defroster is not working properly. its building up ice in the evaporator that touches the evaporator fan that makes that loud noise but stops when you open a door. it could be either a bad heater, a bad thermo disc or a bad timer.hope i was able to help

SOURCE: loud noise from the freezer side
The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.
Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).
Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.

try defrosting, it might be touching ice build up. you can check by pressing the knob switch in front after defrosting one day

SOURCE: noise (more detail)
I think I answered this in an earlier post.
The noise is the fan banging against the motor housing. It's not a defective motor, it's a poorly designed motor.
The solution is to shim the motor mount so it is slightly out of level which will keep the fan from bouncing off the motor housing.
The reason Samsung won't service is they don't understand the problem. I've seen this a half-dozen times.
Trust me -- SHIM THE MOTOR MOUNT!
