    My RS21DCNS has started to make a loud noise from the fridge, when you
    open the fridge door it stops, but as soon as the door is shut it
    starts again. Haven't tried anything other than remove all food
    to see if their was an obstruction at the back of the fridge. and don't
    really know what to look for

    I have the same problem. I pulled the cover and removed ice build up around the fan. Two days later the noise is back and I suspect that the ice has built back up already.

Had same problem,a build up of ice around fan. fan blades hitting ice makes a whirring noise then the fan jams and fridge starts to warm up. It seems that the defrosting water can't run away so I have tilted my fridge slightly backwards to enable the water to run away and I've had no problems since.

If it wobbles when turning free, the bearings are probably wore out. If they get dry due to no lubrication they will whine while running. May just need a new fan motor.

you either have a kinked water line, or a frozen one. There is a possibility that the solenoid isn't working.

Water not running on Samsung RS21DCNS - why?

Water tank in bottom of fridge can freeze up if thermostat gives up. First water will stop coming out, then ice starts building up, then fan starts making noise as it brushes against ice, then fan fails, then fridge warms up  ---- all a well know scenario with this fridge. I wonder if this is the problem you have ?
Apparently Samsung are now recognizing this as a design fault and extending unit guarantee. Ring them on: 0870 726 7864  and see what happens...
