This answer was rated:

JA: Hi. How can I help?
Customer: My zanussi Fridge freezer is making a lot of noise can you suggest why please
JA: How old is your Zanussi fridge? Does the noise get louder or softer when changing the temperature setting?
Customer: Its about 6 years old and noise sometimes stats when it has been closed for some time. I have just tried chaning the temperature settings and that seems to have turn off the noise at the moment. The noise is much louder than it simply cooling the inside

JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Welcome to Justanswer … my name is ***** ***** I will help you today!

This indicates temperature issue and/or an air flow problem due to heavy ice build-up inside the rear wall of the appliance.

The noise that you hear might be coming from the fan hitting the ice.

Try this:

Leave it unplugged and empty with door open for around 24-36 hours.

Then plug it back and wait for another 4-8 hours.

The problem should be resolved.

However, if the issue appears again you will have to test/replace the temperature sensor/thermostat/thermal fuse (based on the model number); the issue should be resolved.

Please DO NOT ACCEPT the PHONE CALL request.
