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!

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
