Should I buy a new exhaust fan or try to fix old one?
The fan motor is very loud in this unit. We bought the house six months ago and it seems to be getting worse. We have the same one in the kids' bathroom so I know it isn't supposed to sound this bad. Can I replace just the fan/vent motor or should I just buy a new one? I found one for under $250 in white, ours has the brass ring, but I don't really care about that. I'm thinking if I do replace it I should buy the same one though so I don't need to cut a new whole or do repairs. Any thoughts? I did take off the exterior and look for vibrations, but it seems to be in there sturdy.

I think I answered you in another post. You plug it in, it doesn't turn and the motor feels hot? A hot motor isn't necessarily a problem, but if it's not turning and very hot, you probably need to replace the capacitor or the switch is somehow burned out. I would take it back to the store and just get a replacement.
I'm not the support manager you speak of, but spray some oil into the bearings/bushings on each end of the shaft to lubricate it and it will work fine. The motor gets hot because the bearings/bushings have no lubrication. You have to do this once in a while to make sure it doesn't seize up.
icemaker wont work in fridge. the buzzing sound might be the water solenoid operating and waiting for water level sensor to be happy. solenoid will make a loud harsh buzz check water supply to back of freezer and see if there is a lever on icemaker you can lift up to turn off.
Hi Is your fridge compressor motor working and can you hear it turn on and off every hour or so. Not to be confused with the sound coming from the fan inside the fridge. If the motor is working but neither the fridge or freezer compartment are getting cold, then there may have been a rupture during transport and gas has escaped. Ash
That is usually the evaporator fan motor ($30). Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company. Unplug fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.
If compressor is running then unit has a sealed system issue- throw it away unless still under wty. If comp not running then probably bad relay on it. Only way to check is to replace relay. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!
The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.
Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).
Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.
take the top off the vacuum and you will see 2 straps one on each side of the motor,take the straps off and remove the base from the upright.the motor housing will be at the bottom of the upright.you will see some screws on the front of the housing and on the back.take those out and the motor housing will come apart.you will be at the fan and the motor itself.theres probably something caught in the fan.
Got tipped sideways or other in move and the drum is not on the runners.(Felt front and Bogey/rear)... (Some of these you can reposition buy lifting the drum up from the inside and adjust realigning)..
