    Default Kenmore Side by Side is loud

    I have a new Kenmore side by side refrigerator and it is making loud noise. It is louder inside the freezer. Could it be the fan?

    Hi,

    How new?
    Still under warranty, if yes, call and have local warranty depot check it out for you. Don't get too deep into it yourself and void the warranty.
    Fans, compressor, ice makers are common noise makers.

    Tip of the day, set your Samsung Smart Fridge to a foreign language so Google can't spy on you!!

    I just got it last week. Everyone in the house seems to think the noise coming from the freezer is normal but it is bothering me. Maybe that's how the fridge runs. I did call Sears where I purchased it from and they suggested that I clean the fan before scheduling a tech. Not doing that since it is so new it shouldn't have dust or dirt on it. I'm going to try to return it. Thanks! Do you have any suggestions for a quiet side by side fridge with ice maker?

    Read the use and care manual....often has things in there explaining "new" noise you may or may not hear.
