What to do when the Samsung refrigerator generates loud noise?
There are many possible causes when a Refrigerator is making noise. Most of the noises are normal operating sounds whereas some can be easily fixed with a simple configuration of the Refrigerator. But if you feel like your Refrigerator might be making too much noise, there are some easy things to check.
It is caused by gas moving through the pipes in your Refrigerator when the the appliance cools or freezes your food.
It occurs when the interior components contract or expand as the Refrigerator is cooling or the interior temperature changes after the temperature has been reset.
The buzzing noise you hear is the sound of the Refrigerator compressor running especially during the beginning of a cooling cycle and when it shuts off.
It can be also heard after getting water from the door dispenser. The noise should not last longer than 7 seconds.
Some Samsung Refrigerators are equipped with a door alarm, which will beep whenever the door is left open or not closed completely. Here are some tips to check:
• Make sure that the door's path is free from obstruction
• Make sure that there are no objects in the Refrigerator preventing the door from closing
• If the rubber door seals are dirty, the door will not close properly. Clean the doors with a mild detergent and damp cloth. Then wipe with a dry cloth
Note: Never let any oil or grease come into contact with the plastic fittings or door seals, as these materials easily become porous.
• If the door of the Refrigerator is recently being removed, the hinge bolts or hinge cover screws may be loose
• Make sure the Refrigerator is Level: If the freezer door is lower than the Refrigerator door, insert a common (flat-head) screwdriver in a slot of the control lever on the freezer side and turn it clockwise
