So I just noticed that at startup my fridge has been somehow set to Star Trek Mode and making a bit of a freaky sound.

 

One of two things is going to happen when it finishes the "Beaming me up" noise :  a)  I am going to be beamed  to the wildfires out west,   or b) (less likely) that I will open the doors up and find it completely filled with the freshest groceries and beer...

 

is this noise indicative of impending compressor doom?

Is the noise coming from inside the freezer or down below in back?

Check condenser fan motor and shroud for rubbing or vibration.  Also check tubing from compressor to cabinet bottom for any lines vibrating against each other.  This unit does have the original Panasonic condenser fan motor and those have been problematical.  What's the voltage output at the Dilithium Crystal Chamber?

Im gonna guess your condenser fan is bad. The original panasonic ones are junk.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.
