Any time there is the sound of humming it is important to locate where the noise is coming from. Sometimes fans wear to a point that at one speed the sound as if humming. Sometimes compressors hum with more catastrophic results. Because your model is a bottom freezer it would be a good idea to open drawer to freezer and see if the sound is from fan in freezer or if pulled away from wall is the sound the fan or compressor area? I believe I will be able to locate a service manual but I will need you to help me pinpoint the location of the loud sound so we can get the sounds back to normal. Let me know if you are able to try that and what you find, Sea Breeze
it;s best to replace the fan / or find why the noise . it will probably stop due to this problem. and you may loose food . noises generaly are the first clues . and like i'v said before . if you can hear it it's running . but if your cant it may have quit . . then not cool and food loss . **** / hope this helped mm / feed back pls .
I am not an expert in this field but I did have the same exact problem and called a service technician. There was huge block of ice in the back panel of the freezer.
Get everything out of the freezer and take the panel off the back (inside of freezer) with a screwdriver. Look by the fan and check the bottom to see if there is a build up of ice. You can pry it off or take the blowdryer to it.
Please take precaution when doing this and I would unplug the fridge just to be on the safe side.
We paid $180.00 for someone to do this....if I would have known...lol. The technician did tell us we would need to replace the fan eventually but we haven't yet. I would say that it hums (loudly) every six months and we (my husband) have to repeat the steps above.
Stick you hand in the freezer, touch the back wall of freezer, see if you feel a strong or lite vibration equal to the hum you are hearing. If so, the you have a bad evap fan, if not then pull unit out from wall and see if hum is load toward the bottom rear portion of the frig, if so contact a repair tech.
suspect you have a problem with the defrost system and hence the noise with the fan. take back panel off inside the freezer and if i'm right, melt ice off with a hairdryer. get back to me to say the results if you want
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.
