Hi there, I have a side by side samsung fringe (one side freezer & other cooler). The cooler side has a fan to distribute the air inside and due to the ice building up near the internal fan it is touching making grinding noise. I stopped the fridge for a day and problem disappeared but came back couple of days later. How do I stop ice building up in this closed box inside the fridge? Cheers.

We have a Samsung Fridge, Model SRS 598 NSS, side by side fridge and freezer. The fridge started making a loud noise when the door was opened as if the fan was coming to a halt.

Now it is making the same noise and the fridge i
