Is it a vibrating noise. The model and serial numbers are in the fresh food section. Toward the top.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
model bc121vw ..serial # XXXXX ..manufacture # XXXXX ...and it is like a vibration
Expert:  MASTER-TECH replied 4 years ago.
Can you send me the first two numbers of the serial again they xxx it out if it looks like a phone number. Can you pull the unit out and inspect the fan. It sounds like the fan may have debris in it. Let me know what you find.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
000 .. 715..2487.. in case it x's out again ..first two are 00 ..stupidly im at work on a break and cannot pull it out... good chance that his a possibility though because it looks like they shoved it into the wall to fit and busted the sheet rock behind it..
Expert:  MASTER-TECH replied 4 years ago.
The unit was made in 2000. Let me know when you get to it. Have a good night.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
thank you very much you too... if i respond back tommorrow will i get you again? if thats the problem i would like to pay you more than the 14 dollars..
Expert:  MASTER-TECH replied 4 years ago.
No problem. The question should still be open. Talk with you then.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

hi..sorry for delay..i cleaned out the fan..it only had dust in it no real obstructions..i can feel the vibration in the middle of the refridgerator about 3 feet from the ground..

Expert:  MASTER-TECH replied 4 years ago.
If the niose is coming from the middle of the uint then it will likely be an issue with the evap-fan. If you open the freezer is it louder?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
it appears that the vibration is the back wall in the interrior of the freezer..the screws are all tight but if i push on it the noise decreases
Expert:  MASTER-TECH replied 4 years ago.

It will be the evap fan. If it is realy bad you may just need the fan blade if it is missing a fin. Other wise replace the fan. Unplug the unit and remove the rear panel of the freezer. There will be 3 tabs on the vent cover to remove it. Look for the picture of the screw driver on the cover for the two outside ones and you can see the one in the center. You will also have to release the keeper clips on the side of the ice maker plug to release it from the back panel.
