Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

How do I access evaporator section to change fan or remove ice. When door is opened noise winds to a halt. Defrosted unit for 12 hrs, noise went almost away, however, it came back a few days later. Model is Samsung RM 255 LASH. Note: Rear of unit has only small access panel at bottom and no screws to remove elsewhere. Wondering if access to evap section is through inside of box?

I have a Kenmore 21, bottom freezer. Model # 106.9631611. Over the last few months, it's noise level has increased. I took off the panel at the lower back side and cleaned it No problem there. Next I remove the rear metal panel in the freezer unit. Everything seemed OK there. The noise seems to be coming from behind and above the freezer unit.There doesn't appear to be access to that area, that I can see. Can you help?

I have a GE Monogram model #ZISW42 side by side, with the cooling unit on top. In the last couple of days the fridge won't cool below 42 deg. The freezer makes ice, so I believe the freezer is 0 deg. After removing the styrofoam baffle, on the top front, where the flap diverter is, I get a temp reading of approximately 21 deg. The unit goes through the defrost cycle (35 min. each 10 hrs.) I notice the tube that runs under the drain pan is a lot hotter on the compressor side, than on the ev

We purchased a new home which came with GE Stainless Steel side by side refrigerator model # GSS23WSTA SS less than two years ago. Tonight when we came home, the ice maker/water dispenser motor is making a noise. Sort of like a loud motor running noise, near the top of the freezer section. Everything still works properly, including the water/ice dispenser on the front of the freezer door. I inspected what I could by removing the ice tray and everything looks as though it is in proper working ord
