I have a kenmore coldspot model 70167998 - loud vibration in freezer; i'm thinking maybe it's the frost free fan going out? Is this a fire danger?


no theres not any fire danger,it may just be the fan blades hitting ice build up due to defrost issues you will need to remove the rear inner wall in the freezer to see exactly what it is

Frigidare freezer making buzzing sound like a motor


You hear the evaporator fan that is probably rubbing on some ice buildup. Remove the rear panel in the freezer to confirm that there is ice buildup and post back to me.

I hear a higher pitched solenoid buzzing for about 10 seconds every 30 minutes or so. It is a new sound and it seems to be coming from the lower right side of the fridge but I don't notice any...


is your ice maker hooked up?if no water is going to the ice maker and the arm is down it will buzz.also check the fans one in the freezer and one in the rear for the compressor and condenser,maybe a piece of paper is hitting the fan blade when the fan starts or it could be vibration in the frame,ytou can remove the bottom kickplate and you say every half hour or so it makes the sound and listen to see if you can pinpoint the noise,when you open the freezer door the evap fan will run,you can check that fan motor like that.you have to do a little detective work to find the noise but if the ice maker isn't hooked up to the water source and the arm is down it will buzz.good luck.

Refrigerator making a high pitch vibrating sound


Sounds like the fan from the freezer that blows the cold air into the refrigerator is noisy. It either needs replacement, or lubrication. Good Luck, I hope this helped Please rate me, Thanks

Ice builds up in freezer, and vibration noise only when freezer is closed. When freezer open vibration noise stops. starts when pressing the switch which turns off the light.


Replace the fan motor AND blade . ( evaporator fan motor ) . This motor is located inside the freezer , behind the rear panel . The switch , is a fan/light switch , when closed , turns on fan , and light off . When open , light on , and fan off . normal operation .

New humming/rumbling vibration sound from the freezer


There is a fan behind the rear cover inside the freezer. It may be hitting ice buildup which would indicate a defrost system problem.

LG fridge/freezer rumbling/vibrating sound


Check your defrost components. The fan is hitting the frost buildup and will shut off when the door is opened so as to not circulate the warm air. The heater or the timer is not doing a proper defrost cycle.

Noise vibration


if you take the back panel of the freezer out you can get to the condenser fan they do have a habit of going bad and actually having the fan and shaft move forward on them usually when you start hearing the noise it is not long before it goes out completely.

Remove the back panel inside the freezer (if there's a removable panel there. There is a fan behind it - may be source of your problem.

My freezer is buzzing- loudly!


Sounds like ice buildup around the fan that's inside the freezer.  My lousy GE 3-door did that when the bottom freezer didn't get completely closed overnight, and everything behind the back panel, where the coils are froze up like an iceberg.  I had to take the back panel off and melt it with a hair dryer. 

See if you see any abnormal ice buildup, or if the refrig compartment is getting warm.  That's usually a result of ice buildup.   Another cause is a failure in the defrost cycle.  It will freeze up after a couple days. This would usually be the defrost timer.
