Question about Samsung RS2630SH Side by Side Refrigerator
Loud fan noise in freezer stops when I open the door and starts when I close the door. How do I fix it? jj [email protected]
Sounds like your Samsung RS21 has devoloped a known fault.
Your frdige will be cold in the drawers but not cold above this? Also there is ice around the pipe behind the drawers. it is the ice hitting the fan that is the noise and eventually stops the fan which pushes the cold air around the frdige.Samsung have extended their warranty to 5 years to cover for this.
You need to call the Samsung customer care team 0845 7267864 and should be repaired free of charge. - mine was. When you call, you need the full model number and serial number. my serial number was on the outside left hand side of the fridge. The engineer comes out within a day or 2.

SOURCE: noise (more detail)
I think I answered this in an earlier post.
The noise is the fan banging against the motor housing. It's not a defective motor, it's a poorly designed motor.
The solution is to shim the motor mount so it is slightly out of level which will keep the fan from bouncing off the motor housing.
The reason Samsung won't service is they don't understand the problem. I've seen this a half-dozen times.
Trust me -- SHIM THE MOTOR MOUNT!

The fan you should replace is called the condenser fan. It's the one that blows air across the outside coils. When it fails, you'll usually notice abnormal heating of the front of the divider between freezer and fridge.

Same problem here with the Samsung RS2630SH refrigerator. First had
intermittent fan noise, followed by constant squealing fan noise
followed by total fan failure and fridge walls getting very hot. Ordered
parts # DA97-01949A (fan motor) and DA31-00010C (fan blade) from
partstore.com. The fan unit actually slides out. Slide the fan unit
(the white plastic cowling and all) forward (toward the doors) and then
lift it out. Taking the back panel off and aiming a fan at the
condenser does seem to sufficiently cool the fridge - at least it did
for me - until the parts arrive. Good luck to all and don't by Samsung
again. I know I won't.
