I would check fan motor for oil ports and add a few drops of machine oil if they are there. Check fan blades and clean as good as possible. If you can hold on to fan and move motor shaft back and forth more then 1/8 inch then the bearing on yhe motor are worn and you will need to replace the motor. Thank you.

We have a Samsung FR323TEDBSR french door refrigerator that is becoming very noisy


It sound like the fan motor is going bad. They will spin fine when spun by hand but will start to rattle or squeal when running. if it is the model I think you have the entire panel is replaced as a complete unit. This is not hard to replace. It looks like you have already had the panel out. It just has a couple wire to unclip. and clip the new one in.

sounds like the bearings are bad in the motors. It would be cheaper to replace unit than fixing it. new fans/motors would cost more.

My unit outside is working fine but it is making a lot of noise. All my neighbors are telling me that this is not normal. What can I do to reduce the noise. It is spinning fine but it makes loud noise.


Is the condenser coils clean..... If not take a hose and wash the condenser coils But make sure you shut the Main power off to it. Has the unit been charged with Freon lately??? If so they may have gotten it overcharged which will cause High head pressure and make the compressor noisy..... Or is it out of level and not setting on a stable surface. causing a vibration noise. You can put rubber pads under the AC if it is a vibration noise...... Also the Compressor may be going out..... It is hard to tell with out hearing it first hand....Hope this helps If you can't get it to quite down I would setup a Service Call to have them Service the AC and that you are having a loud noise coming from the unit....

New model ET1CHEXYQ02 VERY NOISY, LIKE TO MAKE


Hello there
Please follow these steps first ok
It's noisy Noise can come from these areas: The inside of the freezer The outside back of the refrigerator The bottom of the refrigerator The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows: If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer. If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer. If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top. Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead. To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it. The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting). The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly. If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor. The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator it may make noise

My computer is becoming really hot and noisy. After turning on the computer, everything is good (no noise). Once around 15 minutes passes by or I open up a lot of programs together, my computer starts...


Sounds like the fan is wearing out, as it heats up the fan needs to spin faster and if the bearings are wearing out it will start getting louder and it will also get hotter because the fan cannot keep up the heat being produced. You can replace the fan, most computer shops will carry replacements, also get a can of compressed air and give the inside of the computer a good cleaning. This will help keep things cooler as well. Also make sure that the air vents on the outside of the case are clear as well.

Noise


That noise is due to your Power-Supply-Unit, Hard-Drive, Optical Drives, other spinning devices, and ventilation fans. You can reduce some of it but not all of it.

For example, your hard-drive could be rather old and producing a lot of noise when it spins up, reads, or writes data. You could replace it with a newer hard-drive which barely makes any noise. The same with your Power Supply Unit (PSU). It could be old and rather noisy. You could buy yourself a newer one such as the ones made by PC Power & Cooling which gets you a quieter product. However that's about it as you DO NOT want to reduce the amount of fans in your system.

Sorry if this was not the solution you were after. However most noise from a computer stems from ventilation fans which can be replaced but should not be removed.
