Our Samsung fridge srs757dw is making weird noises(it hums loudly). When the Freezer door is open it stops but as soon as it closes the noise begins again. What do you think is the problem?


Sometimes this can be due to vibrations within the duct , possible that the ventillating fan is frosted and so makes the noise with the door closed. So shut down fridge for few hours to defrost and check.Also make sure there are no loose screws or clips on the back panel and the evporator section that can cause vibration.

Hi David,

There's a big chance that the evaporators fan touching ice and that's why you hear that noise, if you have an ice build up you gonna have to defrost the fridge and test components to see which one has failed.

Turned off the fridge, emptied the Freezer, used a blow dryer for 20-30 minutes, to melt ice that had built up in vents at rear of freezer.

Humming sound? motor or fan constantly running


Hi, It is the evaporator fan motor you are hearing. The motor is the only thing that shuts off when the door is open. The fan motor is located behond the rear panel inside the freezer sections.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Samsung Refrigerator


this is a design fault on the appliance normally caused by the failure of the element and built up of ice around the circulating fan (the humming is the fan motor trying to turn ) youll find that if you defrost it it will work for a little while and then ice up again the need to replace a panel inside the fridge modified and a couple of sensors and poss the heater element

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Thanks,
Bill
