Well add me to the list of people with this problem.  My ice maker doesn't want to work properly so I guess my fridge had to make ice elsewhere.  I still can't believe Samsung has this poor of engineering and customer service.  Guess I'll be taking my fridge apart tomorrow to try and defrost the evaporator.

If you do not have a water line connected, turn off the ice maker to avoid this noise and damage to your refrigerator.

If you do have a water line connected, you may still hear this noise (at a much quieter volume). This is the sound of water filling the ice maker, which will be louder if water pressure is too high. You can try turning down the water pressure, as long as you can still dispense 3/4 cup in under 10 seconds, which is the minimum pressure required.

These sounds also describe the sound of the compressor. It sounds just like a quiet engine or motor. It will start up, run at low or high speed (and can change speeds), might make some clicking as it operates, and maybe sputters a bit as the fan slows to a stop.

I've already had one problem fixed with my ice maker, now it's making a loud buzzing noise and the ice maker is freezing up.  I see the are lots of problems with this.  I spent a lot of money in this refrigerator and want this fixed.  Please contact me assp

I have the same problem described here. Very loud noise from the fan a bit of frost build up on the back wall. The noise stops when you open the door. I have the RF28HFEDBSR which we bought two years ago. Has anyone been able to fix this?
