Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

New GE profile bottom freezer fridge intermittent buzzing

Our new fridge keeps buzzing.  It has an internal water dispensor and an icemaker but we did not hook up water to it.  I think it is trying to make ice.  Can I tell it to stop somehow?  It seems frustrated!

If the buzzing is a short (say 5 seconds) every once in a while, it sounds like the water is valve being energized. That would mean the icemaker is turned on and is cycling. Besides the noise, when it cycles it turns on the mold heater, which you do not need if not making ice, and thus is actually adding heat to your freezer, increasing operating cost. Just turn the icemaker off by flipping the toggle switch on the icemaker itself. It is a white switch near the bottom corner of the icemaker. Should be easy to spot.

Hi, I have a amana fridge with freezer on the bottom. It has an ice maker and water dispenser. The big problem is a buzzing noise comming from the fridge, it start aprox every 16 min and buzzes for 10...


The buzzing you hear is the water valve trying to run water to the icemaker. If there is no water going to the icemaker it will be going into cycles one after another. And when it does it adds heat into the freezer. Turn the ice maker off and see if the freezer gets colder.

Refrigerator knocking noise


If it seems to be coming from underneath the unit it could be the compressor. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} That's usually mounts inside the compressor. Usually when the compressor cuts off. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.
Any other noise would be from a fan. One in the freezer behind the back panel and one under the unit where the compressor is.

WE have the GE Profile Model# PSS26LSRFSS refrigerator side by side its only 4 yrs old. The freezer is not defrosting, the water dispensor not working and the fridge part the top is not keeping food cold...


Many of these Ge PSS units fail the same way. GE should stand behing them because there is such a predominance of these exact failures. Yours sounds like the fan is failing. Mine is intermitent and does the same thing regularly, I thought I found the open but it came back. I guess I didn't. now I'll really have to trace it down. It'll either be an open circuit that is intermittent or it'll be a bad solenoid on the motherboard.
Their motherboards are failing regularly from what I've read.
Good luck.

Ice maker not working


OK, that should be no problem. Test your ice maker and fill with water if empty of ice. If full of ice and not moving to dump tell me. I need to help you locate the problem doing that and answering will tell me the problem. Also look around the door frame and inside for the model Profile that you have. and get back with me as soon as possible, Thanks Sea Breeze
