SOURCE: Samsung Side by Side Refrigerator RS2556SH - Making loud noise

Hi, had the same problem with my RS21DCNS engineer came and made a modification to drain hole (made the hole bigger!) this allows for a little more ice to form without causing the horrid noise. A new backplate was ordered as all new models have a larger hole in the backplate already. It only takes a few mins and it under guarantee if you bought less than 2 yrs ago, but you will have to empty fridge side to allow them to get to inside at the back. Good luck.

this is a design fault on the appliance normally caused by the failure of the element and built up of ice around the circulating fan (the humming is the fan motor trying to turn ) youll find that if you defrost it it will work for a little while and then ice up again the need to replace a panel inside the fridge modified and a couple of sensors and poss the heater element

it sounds like the unit is in defrost. the noise is the souind of the ice breaking up. also you might be able to increase your ice produsction by setting the ice sensor to 17.5 degrees from the current 0 degrees

This unit has a history of problems on the refrigerator side. the basic reset is press and hold down the 2 middle buttons on the freezer at the same time. As a general rule the number one problem is in the mother board. usually you can replace it and everything will work.

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!

Samsung RS25H5111 ice maker in the door. Cube ejector arm gets stuck when it tries to eject frozen cubes.


There is a heater on ice maker that thaws the cubes to make them slide out of the tray easier. Check the temperature of the freezer and see how cold it is set to. If you can make it a little bit warmer that might help.

Freezer side is making an extremely loud humming sound. Ice maker is working fine. No ice buildup anywhere in the freezer that we can see. Loud humming goes on for a few minutes each hour.


Hey Joanne, I appreciate your inquiry!

Based off my understanding the freezer side of your Frigidaire refrigerator is making a loud humming noise. The humming sound could be coming from your compressor. If the sound is a new development it may be a possible issue with the fan pushing further against the wall. You may need to seek help from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you from purchasing any unnecessary parts. Hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

LG Refrigerator model LFC20740ST Freezer is fine, but Refrigerator is not cold.


Try adjusting the thermostat knob up a bit, it should be near the leds, maybe under a cover. Seveen years is not very old but where your health might be at risk from bacteria maybe you might be justified in looking at a new machine. I refuse to call in repair people any more, once something breaks it seems to become a habit, if electrical items cna be said to have habits.

Maybe a new thermostat /seitch might cure the problem

Why would a brand new fridge make strange noises already?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFSS2614QS, is making a strange humming noise. Your new, high-efficiency refrigerator may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These sounds normally indicate your refrigerator is operating correctly. Some surfaces on floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more noticeable. This could possibly be the compressor that you are hearing. Modern, high-efficiency compressors run much faster than in the past. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Just purchased this fridge and the motor appears to be running quite often and loud. Think it is noisier than it should be for a new fridge - is this normal or is there a problem. Had a Kitchen aid...


Normally all what is heard is HUM which needs one to listen. Hiowever is you experience a high noise then being a priviledge customer you need to get a consensus to your viewpoint as the fridge is covered with warranty.
Please check for SYMPATHETIC vibrations on the rear panel due to loose fitting which can happen with transportation.
Your observation is most important.

I like to know if my LG refrigerator has warranty with the company because it's not working. I bought it 3 years ago and it is not getting cold.


You only have by default, a one year manufacture warranty on your refrigerator. If you bought a a extended warranty, you may still be covered.

Compressors on LG's are either five or seven year manufacture warranty.
