Loud humming noise as fridge is running

My Samsung fridge is not yet a year old. It has started this loud humming noise while it is running. it varies how long this noise will go on, sometimes a few minutes other times a half hour. I flip the breaker to make it stop but ultimately it starts again. This happens many times in a day. I have opened the doors to see if the noise is loud inside the fridge and it seems to be coming from behind. There is a protective cover on the back so I can't see what is going on while the noise is present. Any suggestions? I have sub-zero fridge about 18 years old. It has started this loud humming noise while it is running. it varies how long this noise will go on, sometimes a few minutes other times a half hour. This happens many times, on and off during the day and night. I also have ice built up to approximately 60% of the coils, at the rear. Would appreciate a solution. Thanks.

If you have ice buildup then the fridge may be low on freon.
or there is dust clogging around the pump or fan is not running.
remove the bottom or back and look around the compressor.
see that the fan is running.

My samsung fridge/freezer is only 3 years old, just started making loud noise, then when the fridge is opened sounds like the fan making a loud noise that goes down and stops. Then not long after that...


Compressors usually make a thrumming/humming noise, so yes, this sounds like the fan. It could be something touching the fan blades, like ice or a wire. If you can unplug the fridge and remove panels near the fan, you may discover the problem.

Samsung rf265 series refridge is making a loud humming noise--only 1 year old


It is a well known defect.
the ice is builing up until it interferes with the fan.
The samsung people will not help you. You are screwed.
A&E appliance repair(Sears) told us to take all the food out and leave the doors open for 24 hours.
This happens at least once a month.
We cannot ever buy a fridge from Samsung again or from Lowes.
They ****** us hard. Good luck

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

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
