Vibrating sound coming from behind icemaker

We have a GE Profile refrigerator that is one year old model # PSC23MSWA. The freezer door was left open yesterday for an hour or so and the door wouldnt close it was hung up due to the ice cube tray not being inserted properly. We positioned it correctly and it has since been making an intermittent loud vibrating sound directly behind the icemaker.

SOURCE: Hotpoint HSS25GFP icemaker stopped working

are u sure that model # Is right.. DOnt come up in any of my model data bases Seems like u might of got a bad icemaker.. if the water is coming into the icemaker from the water valve.. icemaker has to have power, to do that... all funtions after that would be controled by the iceaker .. The only other thing i can think of is your refrigerator has to be a certain temp to activate icemaker somewhere around 0 give or take some to be safe

The fill tube is probably frozen. Its in the roof of the freezer. turn off the freezer and heat the roof of the freezer with a hair dryer, being careful not to get it too hot,and it should thaw and work again. If you can put the food elsewhere for a day, just turning it off with the door open should work also.

Unplug and closely examine the area for a loose fan blade or anything that may be causing the noise. Better now than to get damage that could be prevented. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: GE Model GSH22KGRBWW has two problems. 1st

Here recently I have run into 2 of these units that do this and have found that the dispenser line is frozen in the freezer door. The way to test this is to remove the kick plate under the doors (It is easiest to open both doors to do this) Disconnect the union in the water line leading to the door by pushing in on the waterline and pulling in on the end of the fitting. When the line is apart, close the doors and push in on the paddle as to fill a cup with water. If you get water out of the line under the door then your line in your door is frozen and you will either need to replace your door or let the unit thaw for 24 hours with the doors open. Cheaper to thaw. If no water comes out under the door when paddle is pressed then you will need to replace the water valve as long as you have 120 volts at the valve when actuated.
I have had some of these same units making noises like this. One I found was leaking water down from the water inlet tube and in behind the ice maker and behind another panel that shoots up to the ice maker and building up behind that panel and causing a whistling sound. Removing the ice build up solved this one problem but couldn't find solution for the problem for the other. Dismissed it to change in the weather and expanding and contracting of the liner of the unit. Hope this helps.

Ge profile 2004 open door and temp controls off shut door open they come back on light was staying on sometimes to bottom half of coils in freezor froze freezer working but temp in frig 50s on off fri


It is possible the refrigerator is low on Freon. You will need to remove the back panel inside the rear of freezer to examine the evaporator coils. If only a few rows have frost it will be time to replace the refrigerator. If the control panel in the freezer dispenser are coming on and off there may be a bad connection in the plug under the top left door hinge cover. Check that the plug is tight. Let me know what you see first behind the freezer wall, Thanks Sea Breeze

I need to repair my GE profile refrigerator


The first thing you need to determine is if the compressor is coming on. If it isn't then the problem is in the lower section, PCB, start relay or capacitor or compressor. If the compressor does come on, then it sounds like your main board is the problem.

GE Profile leaking onto floor


Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section behind the cover underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water) Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

Strange sounds can be deceiving as to their actual location. Your problem could be one of several:

* icemaker
* freezer fan motor
* compressor
* condenser fan motor

Contact an appliance service company.

GE Profile making knocking noises at different times


I have the GE profile Refrigerator with ice maker in the refrigerator compartment. Mine was knocking loudly for long periods of time, so I finally removed the icemaker by removing the side panel in the icemaker compartment held with 1 phillips head screw, disconnecting the electrical plug (unclip), pulling the tab of the icemaker down (on top) and sliding it toward the door, thus removing it. There was ice frozen in the motor compartment that was the problem. I let it thaw out and re-installed. All was OK after that..

OK, it sounds like you have a defrost problem. When left unplugged for a few days the frost melted off the evaporator (the cooling coils behind the freezer wall) but after you ran it again, the coils blocked the air flow again, usually happens after a week or so, depending on # of door openings, humidity in home, etc. Most likely you have a burnt out defrost heater.

GE Arctica Profile getting too cold, temp set to 37 actual temp is 25-35


Wow, so you dropped some money into it, eh? I would take a look at the damper door asslb(DIFFUSER). located at the very top left of your refrigerator section in back. It has a motorized door that opens and close's and it may be stuck open. More than likely it is broken and needs to be replaced. GOODLUCK!!!!

FYI: All your cold air in your refrigerator comes from your freezer!
