I got the same issue. It makes me very disappointed. I bought Samsung fridge couple years ago. Since two months ago, fan started marking noise. The fan making noise as it spins when the door is closed and when we open the door we can hear it spin down and the noise gets louder until it stops.
Another one here with the same issue. Have tried all the trouble shooting steps. Defrost, ice maker off, makes no difference the noise is there with a vengeance. Unacceptable.
Been having the same issue with our Samsung refrigerator, model RF23HCEDBSR. Heard a loud humming fan noise with the doors closed, stopped with the doors open. Had to defrost the fridge, only saw minimal ice buildup. The noise stopped for a week, just came back again. Really don't want to pay hundreds of dollars for a service tech to come out with no guarantee of a fix, since this clearly is a design flaw with the fridge. This appliance is only 3 years old, I should not have to be defrosting it regularly and throwing out spoiled food, especially with two young children at home. Samsung, how should I go about fixing this issue??
Having the same problem as everyone else. Loud fan noise with dooe closed that stops when I open the door. I have ran the forces defrost twice which hasn't helped at all. Refrigerator is only 3 years old. Anyone have a video that shows how to get the back inside cover off so I can melt the ice?
