Question about GE Refrigerators
I have the replacement fan and was able to get at the fan in the freezer section. However, when I unhooked the harness, there were 2 extra wires in the harness in the freezer that came form somewhere else. The wires from the replacement motor match the existing motor and the harness is the same except for the 2 other wires (white). Where do they come form and how do I change out the motor and get the correct wiring?
apc...appliance parts center has a good web site that might get you a wiring diagram. or your local appliance supply store might.

If ice/frost is building up on the back wall of the freezer then you have a defrost system failure.
Defrost system; Evap Fan, Heater, Thermo disk, Timer.
Evap Fan - this should be running all the time except when it goes into defrost mode.
Defrost Timer - This part is hard to locate on some models, a call to a parts place with the model number can help you find it and tell you if this is the type you can mannualy turn to put in the defrost mode. If you can do this, take the back panel off in the freezer so you can see the cooling coils. The heater should be red hot and melting the ice. If so, replace the timer. If not, you need an OHM meter to check the heater and therma disk.
Un plug the Ref, locate the heater, usually looks like a heating element in an oven and runs across the bottom of the coils. Touch the meter leads to each end of the heater. If no reading, replace.
Therma Disk - located close to where the coils enter the freezer, small round disk clipped to the coils. Check the same as the heater but, you won't get a good reading unless the temp is below freezing. Any doubt, just replace, it's not that expensive.
This is a lot to do, hope this helps.

SOURCE: Freezer fan noise
Remove the freezer panel to access the fan motor. Look for any obstruction around the fan or blade. Ice, misplaced wire etc.
Check the fan blade. Sometimes they slip down the shaft too far.
If you find none of these issues, replace the fan motor.

First of all - make sure you route the green grounding wire connector from the board to one of the screws, holding the board cover. If you leave it hanging - you can kill the board if the wire touches some of the board elements.
Second - check what kind of sensors you have in your fridge. There are three of them: one in the fresh food section, and 2 in the freezer.
If any of the sensors has black compound where the wires enter the white plastic cylinder, you'll need to replace it with the newer one: WR55X10025
Locations: One behind the damper cover in fresh food section (far left top corner)
One in the far left bottom corner (small cover with 2 white wires to it)
One (which most likely makes the problem) is on top of the evaporator (coil in freezer section, behind the lower back cover). Ifyou replace any of them - make sure to insulate the splice points with food-grade silicone.

Testimonial: "You truly are my guru. I don't know how you knew exactly what to look for, but the thermosters were just as you described. Thank you, it works!"
