I pulled the refrigerator out from the wall yesterday to clean it. Blew the coils out and vac'd out under neath. Pushed the unit back against the wall and now it is making a terrible vibration noise. Could it be an easy fix before I have to call a repai$$ man. Thanks

open the doors and feel the middle strip.if that's hot check the condenser fan to make sure it's running and clean out the coil in the back.pull out the machine,remove the bottom panel,on the right side you'll see the coil,with a shop vac vac off the coil and then put it on blow and blow out the coil,that's the only way to clean this kind of coil and make sure the fan is blowing back there.let me know what you find,also send the full model number,open the fridge door,look at the right wall near the ceiling and you should see the model number.
this is the wall between the freezer and the frg i think . it is warm when the compressor is running . and if hot / then look under neath unit and i thing you will fing the coils ar very dirty or the fan is not going or both . so clean coils every 3 to 4 times a year and repl fan if it has failed . and things will get better .. ,mm
ge has had alot of problems with the computer board that's in the back of the fridge.but first try this,open the freezer door,you should hear the fan blowing in there,if not you could have a bad evap fan motor,also touch the back wall of the freezer,if there's snow or ice on the back wall you have a defrost problem,you could have a bad heater or a defrost thermostat,also have you cleaned the coil on the bottom of the fridge?remove the bottom kick plate and vac it out,pull out the machine,remove the back bottom panel and vac that out,ashop vac works great for this vac out what you can and then blow out the coil and clean out any of the dust that you couldn't vac up.if the frame between the doors is hot that's one way of telling it's time to clean under there and when you have the back panel off make sure the fan is blowing back there.if everything looks good i would change the computer board,it costs around 150 to 200 hundred bucks.let me know what you find and if you need any more help let me know.
you have a good brand . back to problem ck for ice on back wall of freezer if so you have a defrost problem and coil is blocked with ice . if no ice make sure the fan inside and down under neath are working and clean the coil. all of these will prevent the unit from cooling .. hope this helped mm
remove bottom vent cover at front of fridge. just clips in place. look under neath and you should see a coil. its probaly caked with dust. use a shop vac or vaccum cleaner with small enough hose to insert under the fridge directly to the coil. remove all dust. dont use anythng sharp or pointed to clean coil, as coil can be punctured.
The bottom tray on most units will pull out.
However I have found that there are some better ways to getthe dust and dirt out from under there.
A good shop vac with a crevice tool is a great way to get in there.
Another way that I have often cleaned under neath is to use an air compressor with an air nozzle at high pressure. You can blow everything clean and then vacum up the dirt.
It is very important to keep things clean so that your compressor stays cool and the coils have good air for heat transfer.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
hi thanks for the question it would seem that the problem is with the drain hose, going to the drain pan very common problem with all fridges let the fridge thaw 24 hrs let the ice melt in the drain cavity clean after thawing make sure the hose is in the pan vac *** under neath & coils thanks the appliance doc
