Why is my Samsung fridge so loud?
The noise is caused by ice buildup around the fan. You can perform a manual defrost to get rid of the ice buildup and get rid of the noise, but only service will correct the original cause. If only a manual defrost is performed, the noise will eventually come back. This is why we recommend service for this issue.
Where is the evaporator fan in a Samsung refrigerator?

It’s responsible for drawing cold air into the evaporator coils that circulate throughout the fridge. If it fails, there won’t be enough cold air in the refrigerator, preventing it from cooling.
