Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator

Model HSS25IFMCCC GE Refrig motor/fan making loud noise

I have a 8 yr old Hotpoint Frig and just recently it started making loud noises when it either has the fan or motor running during one of it's cycles(it isn't loud otherwise). When i open up doors it stops but then starts up again when they are shut. It almost sounds like a plane engine when taking off or landing! Seriously! Another thing i noticed is frost build up on second shelf of freezer. My freexer is also very packed with food, could that be a problem?

8 yr old maytag msd2758drw side by side isn't freezing


If the clicking noise is comming from the rear of the frig it could be your compressor trying to start. The motor would be the fan in the freezer running. That part would be normal.
If it is the compressor it could be replaced but if it were me I would buy a new frig.

Noises in freezer area of refrigerator


Some refrigerators have a small plastic fan under the bottom shelf of the freezer that circulates air. It's not too unusual for a heavily loaded shelf to rub the fan blades making the noise you describe. If you empty the freezer, you'll fin a few screws holding the bottom shelf in. remove the shelf and inspect the fan and surrounding parts for signs of rubbing. Also tug on the fan blade lightly to see if it is still attached to the motor's shaft securely. New fan blades can be purchased at a good appliance repair shop. Good Luck

Hotpoint side by side has recently bugun making a lot of noise


Check for frost in the freezer compartment that may suggest a defrost problem which would cause it to run for extended times and make more noise. The other possibility is that if the fan is making a up and down type of noise, it will need a new fan in the freezer section due to a faulty bearing in the motor.

GE SidexSide PSS26SGPASS Makes Humming Noise


GE refrigs have a variable speed evaporator fan motor that is controlled by a computer board on the back of the refrig. now the noise you are hearing is most likely the fan motor ramping up and down in speed (some of my customers say it sounds like a ghost). if its a continuous ramping up and down then the speed cotroller on the board is bad and must be replaced. if its just an occasional sound then thats normal and nothing to worry over.

Btw the reason the noise stops when the door opens is because the fan shuts off when you open the door.

GE GSS20IE Ice Maker


Even though the fridge was given to you it still has a 1 yr warranty from manufacture date.  Look on the sticker inside the fridge and see if it gives the manufacture date or get the receipt from you gave it to you.  Call 1-800-905-9505 for service.  They are nationwide (US).  If you find out it is older than 1 yr then use the model # on that sticker and go to www3.sears.com to get the correct part # for the icemaker.  Unfortunately these come as a whole unit and can't replace parts.  Once you have the correct part # I bet will find a good price on ebay for a new ice maker.  If you need help finding the part # or any other questions let me know.  If you feel I didn't help solve your problem please let me know before you rate this solution.
