Open Question

I have a SAMSUNG RF34H 9960S4. The evaporator motor runs constantly. When I open the door it stops. It is noisy. We turned off the refrigerator to remove any ice build up but that didn't help.

you have a bad seal, Take a dollar bill and slide it in between the door seal and the frig. slide it up and down to see if if has drag on it. If you find places it dont touch loosen the screws and adjust the hinges till it fits tight. In some cases you might have to tweak the doors if they need it.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator, evaporator fan not running

As insignificant as it may seem, that evap fan motor is as important as petrol in a car. That fan controls the fridge cooling on many fridges and circulation in tha freezer compartment. Replace it with the correct one and you should see a functional fridge/ freezer again. Note, i wouldnt run unit without it for long, as condensig temperatures run high and compressors dont last long.

Noisy fan stops when I open my freezer


Some refrigerators control the freezer fan by turning it off when the door is open to minimize cold air loss. This is likely normal for your model (check wiring diagram to ascertain this.) The freezer fan is the noisiest component on a refrigerator so the noise might be typical of your model. If it is excessively noisy (it's louder now than it used to be) then it will probably be one of the following: 1) bad fan motor bearings and the motor should be replaced, 2) loose or broken fan blade and should be replaced, or 3) frost/ice buildup on the evaporator (cooling) coil that the fan blade hits and the cause of the frost /ice should be corrected (likely a defrost problem.)

Why does the refridgerator sounds like a jackhammer?


On some models when you open the door the door switch also turns off the evaporator blower motor. If the fan is hitting something while the door is closed you will hera the noise, and it will stop when you open the door.

Motor constantly running stops when door of either fridge or freezer is opened but starts again when door is closed - Samsung Silver Nano


It's possible that your fridge has a fan to cool down faster your food and to prevent frost. It stops when you open the door to to avoid losing the cold.

Il you send me the exact model (for example RS7568THCSP/WS) I can add a more precise explanation.

Alarm won't stop beeping


Door left open or temp is too warm. most I found is heavy ice build up on freezer evaporator, very easy to tell, pull out one of the drawer and look on the back wall, it should not have any ice on it (a little frost is OK). It may be bad Evaporator sensor, Evaporator fan motor is not running, door evaporator fan reed switch installed upside down,bad connection on defrost heater connector, bad defrost heater element, open heater HI limit switch, open gap on door gasket and compressor never stop running. If no ice build up and compressor is running but temp is rising then it may be sealed system problem. Good Luck.

Beeping sound coming from control panel model#10656562400


Hi!
Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer.
Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause which can't be lubricated or repair instead required to be replaced.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Hi, It is the evaporator fan motor you are hearing. The motor is the only thing that shuts off when the door is open. The fan motor is located behond the rear panel inside the freezer sections.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
