Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator
Frigidaire side by side freezer is making a very loud noise that just started this morning. It stopped freezing ice cream about 3 months ago but was still able to freeze everything else and create ice cubes. I cleaned the bottom of the fridge (condeser coils?) already. If I turn the knob to make the freezer not as cold then the noise goes away for like 10 mins and comes back. Its is a very loud noise...definitely not just humming.
It sounds like the evaporator fan is hitting ice that is built up on the evaporator coil. When it's making the noise, open the freezer door and see if it stops.
(Most models are wired so that the evaporator fan cuts off when the freezer door is open.)
Check the inside back, lower panel of the freezer for ice built up or frost on it. If there is, you have a defrost problem that is most likley a bad heater. It's located around the coil inside the freezer behind the panel you will be looking at. The defrost problem would explain the freezer not freezing ice cream.

Hey Joanne, I appreciate your inquiry!
Based off my understanding the freezer side of your Frigidaire refrigerator is making a loud humming noise. The humming sound could be coming from your compressor. If the sound is a new development it may be a possible issue with the fan pushing further against the wall. You may need to seek help from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you from purchasing any unnecessary parts. Hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt
