20 Most Recent Samsung RS261MDWP - 26 cu. ft. Side by Side Refrigerator Questions & Answers

most refrigerators have a small drainage hole leading from the inside rear of the compartment to an overflow container behind the unit, pull the unit away from the wall and check if the liquid in the container has become stagnant, if so simply clean it out and run a small amount of bleach down the hole to disinfect the tube.
hope this helps.

if the fan is still running when you open the door , the I would be leaving that idea as a last resort
try this
get 2 taper door chocks and put one either side at the back of the fridge
push the cabinet sideways and slip one chock in a bit then do the other side
many noises are from the bottom plate that the compressor is mounted on from tapping on the floor and lifting it a bit stops the noise
the same as when you open the door the pressure on that plate is removed and so it stops hitting the floor

The video is spot on for preventing ice from clogging the drain. To clear the ice from a frozen drain - you can either unplug the fridge and open the door and let it defrost without any additional effort on your part.


if you don's have a place to put the contents of the fridge, access the drain area as shown in the video. Get some dry towel handy for absorbing water. Fill a pot or pan with HOT tap water and draw the hot water into a turkey baster and then squirt the hot water down the frozen drain opening. Repeat as needed until you've melted the ice that has filled the tube - and mop up the excess water with the towels as needed.
