SOURCE: loud noise from the freezer side

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.

SOURCE: noise from back of Samsung freezer near ice maker model RS2530BBP

I figured out what was going on with mine and fixed it (without needing to buy replacement parts). In the freezer section, about a third of the way down the back of the freezer was a bulged-out plastic covering, held in place by four screws. The two screws on top are covered by oval plastic that pops off easily with the help of a knife. If you take the screws out, the hard part is that the bulge/cover is still going to be frozen in place. I used an old-fashioned bottle opener/churchkey to gently pry the compartment open. When I got inside, it was easy to see what was happening--the plastic fan was hitting ice that had built up behind this cover. I chipped away all the ice, and presto--no more noise!

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!

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.

Can I simply defrost freezer to solve a grinding noise that stops when I open fridge doors and gets louder when I open freezer doors?


Not knowing the type of Refrigerator, frost-free or cyclic-defrost-
My opinion is, the noise may be generated from the Fan in the Freezer -compartment,
It is mostly situated in the freezer, behind a removable panel at the rear wall, The panel has a grill, or is slotted to allow the cold air to flow.
The fan may be worn out.
You may hear a grinding or squealing sound.
The fan-blade may be touching (striking) something,
The blade may have moved along its shaft and strikes the housing.
It may strike solid ice ,
the ice can form, if there is a fault with the Automatic-Defrost.
You need to confirm if the fan blade rotates freely.
Do you know how to do that?

Hi, my refrigerator is making a loud noise and it stops and starts about every 12 minutes. It is cooling fine. Can you help me? It is a side-by-side model that is only 4 years old. Thanks. This problem...


Good day,
Open the freezer door, and see if you can hear the fan motor, that is located behind the rear panel.
If it's the source of the noise, then you will have to remove the rear panel to access the fan motor.
If not, go to the back bottom of the machine, remove the back cover and see if the cooling fan motor that cools the condenser and compressor s working properly.
If it's alright, then it will probably be a problem with the compressor itself.
STOP !! The compressor has one year left on it's warranty.
Call your selling dealer for warranty service. This is an expensive repair and altering the machine can void the factory warranty.

Thank you for using FixYa

My refrigerator it's not cooling bu the freezer


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Abnormal cooling in freezer/refrigerator


ok, this is insufficient air flow causing the uneven cooling. the fan that has stopped may be dead. you can test the motor with a multi meter and voltage needle. i would also preform a break point test on the thermostat as well. make sure the compressor and condenser are ok. if the noise is coming for the compressor, you may have a bad compressor unit.

I had the exact same problem and got sick and tired of it. I contacted the Consumer Product Safety Commision and they came out and photographed my refrigerator and asked questions about the fridge. If everyone who is having trouble would write the commission we might be able to get the fridge recalled. Even if you repaired it already, they want to know the problem and what you did about it. the web site is: www.cpsc.gov. Everyone please help out. The more people we get to respond the better.

Check for frost build-up behind back wall in freezer. If there is a heavy frost build-up, it's not defrosting. This will restrict airflow to refigerator section and can stop fan. If fan is stuck again and it's not because of frost, replace evaporator fan motor.
