Lg refrigerator fan noise. If you hear your refrigerator making loud noises coming from the back of the unit, this means that an issue has arisen with either the defrost timer, condenser fan, or compressor.
If your refrigerator is in fact making loud noises coming from the inside instead, it indicates that there is a problem with the evaporator fan.
This would be the part responsible for circulating cold air through your freezer and fridge in order to keep them frosts free

Here we will discuss some common issues and solutions for LG refrigerator fan noise.
Condenser Fan Motor issues
A foreign object that has been accidentally ingested might block the condenser fan motor, or there could be something wrong with the bearings causing a continuous electric motor strain.
The condenser fan motor is usually located underneath the refrigerator near the back. To access it, locate your model number online and find out how to remove the rear access panel to troubleshoot this issue.
If the noise is coming from the compressor, your refrigerator may need to be serviced soon. The manufacture of your refrigerator boasts of quality and high-quality parts, but after time the interior components tend to wear down or break down quickly and generate more noise than normal.
To find out if your compressor needs a service, remove the rear panel located behind your refrigerator by lifting it up.Pulling the unit away from wall will give you a clear view to inspect it better.
Compressors often only last for a few years after they become noisy and worn out so it’s important to pay attention when they make unusual noises. Contact professional repair services who are licensed technicians that can assess whether your refrigerator should be repaired or replaced as soon as possible!
Fan Blade problem
If the refrigerator is noisy or loud, especially when one of the doors are opened, either the evaporator fan blade or condenser fan blade may be at fault.
First, check out the evaporator fan blade in the freezer behind the back panel: try turning it by hand if it doesn’t turn freely and check to see if it is rubbing against something or something is caught in its path.
Check for obstruction/s on the condenser fan blade in the back underside of the refrigerator as well. If you decide to remove anything that seems to be slowing down your fan blades’ movement beforehand, swish them gently through cold water to remove any hair or dust that might have accumulated on their surface so they don’t stick together and make noise during operation later on. Repeat this procedure for all of your other blades too.
Water Inlet Valve issue
If the refrigerator is filling with water or ice too often or making a noisy or loud sound, you might need to replace the inlet valve. The inlet valve (also called feeder) is an electrically-controlled valve that opens to supply water to the refrigerator dispenser and icemaker.
If minerals build up over time within the valve and restrict water flow, it can cause more frequent entrapments of air. In very rare cases, restricted water flow can prevent ice production altogether.
If you suspect that your inlet valve might be clogged with minerals caused by hard water, replace the inlet valve along with a filter to remove these minerals from your drinking water.
Evaporator Fan Motor Problem
The sound from your refrigerator or freezer makes a noise when the door is opened and closed. The sound will be much louder if there is a problem with the evaporator fan motor.
