Sounds like the evap fan is hitting something.. or is loose and making noise... I would remove the cover in front of the fan and take motor out and reinstall it making sure all washers and grommets are in place...but I would look for ice build up first, this could indicate a defrost problem..... hope this helped ken

SOURCE: Loud humming noise as fridge is running

Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Thanks,
Bill

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: Sears Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Loud humming noise

That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa

SOURCE: F&P E442B - Knocking/cracking noise

It is probably the buildup of ice around the condensor (located behind white panel in freezer). I chekcked mine and the ice had pushed the panel oajar and the condensor unit was out of place too. All due to the excess buildup of ice. I removed the ice tonight.. will tell you if this fixes noise problem. Also our fridge was not cooling ..freezer ok.. hope this fixes this problem too- otherwise i'll test the fan (located behind panel in freezer compartment.

SOURCE: my samsung rs21dgrs is making very loud noise

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.

GE profile fridge making loud humming noise


The door being open so long caused warm moist air to collect and freeze inside the unit.

Take everything out, unplug it and let it thaw out for an entire day. All the frost will thaw, and probably run water all over the place so put towels down.

When you plug it back it, it should work fine.

Fridge makes a fairly loud humming noise when I close the door


it sounds like your refridgerator might be unlevel try adjusting the legs all the way down to start then level to floor if that doesnt fix it its probably the rubber gromet under the compressor usually there is four of them if one comes out(usually after moving it makes your compressor vibrate you can use almost any gromet of of any junk refrigerator or if you want you can by original replacement parts at one of your local appliance dealer
