The part costs about $50 and can be replaced in just minutes with some basic tools. We’ll show you how to do it step by step below! As soon as we get a new fridge, I’m thinking that moving this one outside may not be such a bad idea so I can hear what’s going on inside while working from home.. The noise is loud enough at times that it doesn’t even drown out my wife yelling across the house because she wants me to bring her water or something else. It’s getting frustrating – especially when someone comes over unannounced and I have to keep explaining that the noise is a normal feature of this refrigerator.
The first step in fixing your noisy fridge is to unplug it from its power source, so you don’t electrocute yourself or something even more unfortunate while trying to diagnose what’s going on with the appliance. Then remove all items stored inside like food, drinks, condiments – whatever might be occupying space at the moment.. After plugging back into outlet after replacing part we can start by removing plugs for freezer and water dispenser if they are plugged in (typically located lower left front). Once those two plugs are removed pull out enough slack cable wire so when one end is still plugged in other will reach down past bottom edge of panel along the front of the fridge, peel off insulation to expose black wire.
If you’re lucky enough your refrigerator problem is an easy fix that can be fixed with just a replacement part and without any cost for labor or parts! If not, then you may need to call in professional help. As long as it’s still under warranty, Samsung will cover repair costs if necessary (I know from experience). But before giving up on fixing your machine yourself I would recommend checking out this how-to video created by YouTube content creator Home Appliance Repair Expert:
The first step in repairing your noisy fridge is unplugging it from its power source so that you don’t electrocute yourself while trying to diagnose what’s
I have a Samsung refrigerator that makes an intermittent noise. When I open the door, it stops for about 30 seconds and then starts again.
The compressor is running continuously but when you put your ear close to the unit near where the fan blows air in from outside or just above the evaporator coils on top of the freezer section (next to overflow pipe), you can hear rattling/clicking noise coming from one of those two areas, like it’s something loose rubbing against metal surface (fan blade?) or plastic housing? Or maybe one of those covers over coil-thingies needs cleaning out.. Anyway this only happens intermittently so hard to tell what’s going on at times. If I listen very closely with my ear right up to the unit, I can tell that it’s coming from somewhere near where the fan blows air in.
I’ve looked at all those plastic covers and fins on top of coils inside freezer but nothing is blocked or looks like a loose piece. There are no repairs needed for any of them as far as I know. One thing that did catch my attention was when I moved one side panel around so see if anything looked out-of-place under there; specifically right next to overflow pipe (next to coil) had some debris/debris stuck against bottom vent grill covering evaporator coils underneath which seemed odd? It could be just dust blown into there by wind gusts outside through gaps in insulation panels above door..or something more sinister.
It’s worth checking out. I’m going to get a flashlight and see if anything is in there then vacuum it up and check the coils themselves !!
The fan itself has always worked so I doubt that is what it could be but just wanted to eliminate any possibility of something like dust entering cooling coil fins which would cause them not to cool properly or maybe even break down causing more noise! The only other thing it could be? A bad bearing on one of those fans ?? No idea, will update as soon as find out for sure !!
I have now checked all four corners where air flows through from outside into freezer section and nothing blocked/looks strange so unless they’re hidden behind plastic panels (which doesn’t seem likely) I’m not sure what else it could be!
I vacuumed up and looked to see if anything was caught in the coils themselves. The only thing that seemed out of place were some leaves so I don’t think there’s an issue with my compressor !! In any case, after blowing everything off again (which did seem to help), clicking noise is still intermittent so will keep on looking for a cause !!
Just came back from checking out the area behind/underneath refrigerator where air flows into freezer section and found nothing blocked or unusual – looks like another “dead end” on this one !! So unless anyone has other ideas before we take apart whole front panel, time to move onto last possibility: taking unit outside and flipping it on its back to check compressor.
It’s not uncommon for newer refrigerators, especially ones with an ice/water dispenser in the door, to have a clicking noise that is coming from the icemaker section or water filter cartridge area when they are running low on cubes. It can easily be fixed by removing and cleaning out these areas of any sediment build-up with some hot soapy water (and rinsing well) using a narrow brush like this one: **
To figure out where your refrigerator click sound is coming from – first find the right side panel. Lift up at the bottom edge and pull towards you slightly until it pops off revealing all components inside! Then remove whatever filters / trays are in the way. If it’s getting louder when you open the freezer door, then that means your noise is coming from inside of the freezer section and not likely to be compressor related. If it gets quieter with more space between the fridge and wall, or if a few cubes drop out when you pull off some freezing trays – then this could mean something is wrong with either an evaporator fan motor (see below for how to fix) or faulty defrost heater wires (which will require professional maintenance). Either way, now would be a good time to call Samsung customer service at
