Fan making loud noise like it needs oiled

Last night the a/c started making a loud noise. Sounds like when a fan needs cleaned and/or oiled. Filter has been cleaned and everything else works fine. We turned it off until we know what the problem is and how to fix it but the temp outside today is 102. HELP!

    Thanks for your help! I'll try that tonight. Haven't had a chance yet. We were going to pull it out and see what it looked like anyway. Now we know what to look for. :)

Most of the fan motors can be oiled. You will have the slide the ac forward and remove it from the case to access it. You will find yellow pull pins on each end of the motor, a lite drop or two is all that is needed.

Last night, the freezer door on my older GE Profile fridge got left slightly open. This morning, it was making a loud noise and some of the food inside was starting to thaw. I turned it off for awhile...


The door being left open would have caused frost to form around the evaporator fan motor and that would be the source of your noise.

If the lights are still working then it is probable in defrost, wait about 30-45 min and see if it turns back on. If not then you might have a different problem.

What is the model number for your fridge? The model number is normally in the fridge on the right hand side.

My samsung fridge/freezer is only 3 years old, just started making loud noise, then when the fridge is opened sounds like the fan making a loud noise that goes down and stops. Then not long after that...


Compressors usually make a thrumming/humming noise, so yes, this sounds like the fan. It could be something touching the fan blades, like ice or a wire. If you can unplug the fridge and remove panels near the fan, you may discover the problem.

Making virbrating nose


believe it or not, most noises that start and end and start again are sometimes very easy to fix. next time you hear it open the refrigerator doorand see if your ears can pick up the sound. usually it is two bottles in the panel of the door vibrating against each other. if not thencheck your fans especially the condenser fan next to th compressor, something may be caught in the fan blade. unplug unit if you find noise and give the coils a good cleaning while you are down there anyway. let us knowhow you did
