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!

I have a RS265TDRS Samsung side by side refrigerator that made a loud noise when the compressor ran. When the back panel was removed the noise quit. The serviceman repositioned the vibration material on back panel from bottom to the top and fixed the problem.

The fan is making a weird noise and when i open the door it stops but when it stops in makes a loud noise and the temp on the fridge wont stay down but the freezer is fine what is the problem


You have a twin cooling unit and the refrigerator fan is getting clogged up with ice possibly due to a defrost problem. You will need to remove the back wall panel of the refrigerator to access the evaporator fan motor and clean it out of the excess ice buildup. Check the defrost circuits and also the defrost drain to make sure it's clear.

Fridge freezer making a loud buzzing noise


My Samsung refrigerator (rf263aebp) was making an awful buzzing noise in the rear after only 1 year. I solved the problem by loosening the rear panel that covers the fan. Apparently, it was too tight and was rubbing on something (the fan?) and causing the noise.
