Why is my Samsung fridge making a humming noise?

Why is my Samsung fridge making a humming noise?

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.

Why does my fridge keep humming?

Basic refrigerator/freezer maintenance involves the cleaning of the condenser coils on the back of the appliance. When the coils are covered in dust it will overwork itself trying to cool down the inside of the appliance, thus creating a loud buzzing noise.

How do you know when your refrigerator is about to die?

Most refrigerators emit a gentle hum, but if your appliance has recently started buzzing loudly, the motor might be struggling to work properly. Try unplugging the fridge and plugging it back into the socket. If the buzzing doesn’t stop, your fridge is probably dying.
