my Samsung RS2530 makes a whining noise when the fan comes

Resolved Question:

my Samsung RS2530 makes a whining noise when the fan comes on. It is only 3 years old. If I gently tap, it stops the noise. I am trying to figure out if its the fan or something the fan is attached to that may be vibrating to cause the noise. Any suggestions? Do you have schematics?

these are 12volt dc motors and you will need to replace the motor, the whining noise is the motor itself, you can order this @ the part # XXXXX DA31-00020H the blue link above will take you right to the part, thanks Bryan

Hi Bryan,
I will try replacing the motor. I am sorry to delay my 'accept answer' response but would like to try this solution before I accept. Thanks.
