I have a GE side by side fridge (dss25ksr) and freezer has recently started making noise when it runs. It is present 50 to 60% of the time it runs but not all of the time. I have also started to get some ice build up inside the freezer compartment on the walls. I replaced the fan in the freezer section two years ago due to a low "howling/whooshing" it made. (fan woobeling was culprit then) The sound now is much different and louder. Sounds like an exaggerated vibration. Any ideas? Any part

Refrigerator noises I have a Whirlpool side by side model, I am just wondering what it is supposed to sound like on a normal basis. I can hear the fan blowing sometimes and a humming sound, but then it seems to shut off. My items are not thawing out but sometimes there is no sound at all. Is that normal or should I hear the fan running all the time when I open the freezer door?

Noise vibration I have a frigidaire side by side. We have been hearing a loud fan noise/vibration. Ice maker is working, not problems with temperatures. My husband thought there was something going on wiht the fan. There was a little bit of ice on the tubing in the inside of the freezer back by the ice maker. He was banging on the back of the frig by the condenser fan. Sounded like a little of something fell - we think it was some of the ice. It is a little quiter but still hear some noise

My GE Profile side by side is not cooling or freezing (refrigerator and freezer). I took the back lower cover off and cleaned, etc. The fan still runs, the compresser (metal thing next to fan) is not hot. I'm guessing the compresser isn't working but would like to save a service call if there's a way to know for sure. The temperature has now gone all the way to the highest and turned off on both sides. When I turn on to cool you hear a slight change in sound but then nothing.

I have a GE Profile Arctica side by side. The top quarter of the freezer is above 32 degrees. I know that because all the ice in the ice maker has melted and icicles are forming down below. This happened once before, about 2 months ago. We emptied out the freezer, got rid of all the icicles and it started working again. My guess is that there is a circulation issue, but I don't remember there being a fan in the freezer. Can someone give me a suggestion?


There is a fan in the freezer, in the evap area. If fan is not working (check by opening door, holding in on door switch(s) and wait a few min. and see if it come on) then either fan is shorted or ice buildup is blocking fan blade.This re ...

I have a Kenmore side by side that is not cooling the way it was yesterday. The fan & compressor are working but its not blowing the cold air into the fridge or freezer.

It all started when I was trying to figure out why my ice maker wasn't getting water.


It sounds like you are refering to the defrost cycle. This would make the noise you hear. Try cleaning the condensor coils and the fan that is in the bottom where the compressor is.
