Noise with Damper movement


The whirr of a damper

 How to fix

1. Caption : Do you hear a whirring sound inside the refrigerator intermittently? This is due to damper operation.

2. Caption: Damper is one that makes way for circulation of cool air when necessary, and closes it when unnecessary.

As you can see in the drawing, stopping plate will open and close depending on the situation.

3. Caption : The “damper” is opened and closed by the motor inside and it makes the whirring sound (once in 6 sec.) which ensures the normal operation of cool air control.
