Hi, welcome to Just answer
Sorry to hear about your refrigerator issue
Please tell me its complete model number
and how old is it ?
8 yrs old . Where do I find the model no. It is a fridge freezer - freezer at the bottom
It starts with E-nr usually located on the door or inside the left side
are you there? Any tips onhow to stop the noise
If the noise is coming only with the door shut then it seems that the problem is with the fan motor that is bad and needs replacement...however, at times it is caused due to something hitting the fan..you will have to remove everything, unplug the unit and then remove the rear panel to locate the fan motor and check for any ice build up around the fan motor assembly...if there is no ice then you will have to replace the fan motor assembly
nothing I can do on my own then?
Looking at the age of the unit, the fan motor might be a culprit
you can leave it unplugged for few hours so that if there is any ice build up causing the issue it might be solved
the nose is coming from the fridge at the back - right hand side.
Is there anything you can suggest I do in the short term
ok then you can remove rear panel and check for any ice build up
what kind of noise was it ?
I mean like a loud cracking sound or loud banging sound or something like a fan hitting something ... ?
have turned fridge off - no loud whirring/moaning noise
looks like a fan motor
ok. nothing you can do to help is there
You can check for Ice build up...pull it out, take the rear off and check the evaporator fan..if there is no ice build up then replace the fan motor assembly..are you willing to carry out the repair yourself ?
