Question about GE GSS20IEP Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Noise Recently can hear a "wind" noise coming from what seems to be the freezer side of the unit. Sounds like wind escaping thru a car window that is not completely closed. Noise goes up and down when compressor is running. Does not change when I open the door(s). Somewhat high pitched. Freezer side is not iced up, although ice crystals do form around the chute that dispenses the ice but not enough to interfere with operation.

From what you're describing it sounds like the freezer fan motor is causing the noise you hear. The freezer fan is the only moving part in the freezer section. I recommend replacing the freezer fan motor & fan blade together. If there is ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer then the sound is likely from the fan blade hitting the ice and you will need to defrost the unit.

its the ptc overload relay on the side of the compressor body,it aids in starting the compressor by momentarily putting your start and run windings in parallel to overcome" locked rotor current",then drops out start windings after unit has come up to operating speed,it also protects the windings if the compressor cant start,they simply unplug off the compressor and the replacement plugs in the same,replace the capacitor connected to this if applicable as this protects the ptc's overload relay contacts

Side of freezer seems warm


Hi!!

Don't worry about the line, it is supposed to be the way it is. If you are talking about the condenser coil, located on the back bottom part of the unit, with a small fan in front of it, yes, it is supposed to be hot.

The condenser job is to disipate the heat absorbed by the evaporator (the coil inside the freezer). Make sure the condenser is clean and condenser fan is working, also, make sure there is air circulating thru the back of the unit to help cooling the condenser.

The noises you hear, are probably the defrost coil melting the ice on the evaporator, this function is on a timer and happens 3 or 4 times a day.

Good Luck!!

Not cooling


The clicking noise is the klixon on the compressor. It is probably a fault in the start relay, or the capacitor is duff. Worse scenario is the start winding in the compressor is burnt out. Do you know what Refrigerant the unit is running on.

I have a howling noise in my freezer section from air movement? It sounds like wind blowing through a tunnel?


That will be either your motherboard or the condenser coils under the unit. If it just does it when the fan underneath the unit is running it's the coils.

It sounds like you have a bad c v or constant velocity joint. Look under the car next to the wheel look for a rubber accordian type unit, if the rubber is torn or lose the grease has escaped and damaged the joint. You can replace it yourself, but if your not mechanically inclined would say take it to a shop.
