Question about Pds GE Profile Bottom-Freezer Drawer Refrigerator Energy Star 22.2 Cu. Ft. - PDS22MFS

Open Question

GE Arctica refrigerator is making a noise like someone is knocking at the door for about 5 seconds, then it stops. I have narrowed it down to a fan at the bottom of one of the refrigerator doors on the inside....when the fan stops....this noise starts as the fan blades slow down. it doesnt appear stuck on anything either or being blocked

yes you can, or just removed the bottom drawer, open the upper doors and slide the refrigeraro thru the doorway by just swinging it thru. a mover friend of mine showed me that trick at it work great.

Ge Artica Refrigerator PSC23PSTA ss not cooling or freezing. Refrigerator reading 45 and freezer reading 6.


Typical problems that can cause this:

- iced up evaporator due to defrost problem
- failed thermistor (temperature sensor)

all of the above could be due to a failure in the main control board

there is a diagnostic mode that can help you diagnose cause

You have two fans and a compressor which could be making the noise. Inside the freezer behind the back cover is the evaporator fan. It probably stops running when you open the door. Hold the door switch down to keep the fan running to see if it's making the noise.
the compressor and other fan is under the unit accessed from the back behind the cardboard cover.

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..

Help! My GE Profile Arctica runs 24 hours a day...sounds like a fan. It stops when either door is opened, then starts as soon as the door closes. The temps on either side are higher than what they are set...


It is normal operation for ARTICA fans to run continuosly except when the door is open. If the door remains open for 3 minutes the fans will run anyway.
The temperature will vary about 6 -8 degrees from the selected temperature. The temperature will increase during a defrost cycle.
I do not believe you have a problem.

Check the compressor.
Unplug for 15-20 min. plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start. You will have to be behind the ref to listen and make sure you hear the compressor start and not just a fan running. If you hear a clicking noise then the compressor relay is bad.

The Top Freezer Is making a Loud buzzing Noies!


Hello psimmons304,
Yes it does sound like a issue for the fan. What i would do is look up the model on google and type in replacement fan. you should be able to find it that way.  If this doesn't answer your problem please post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it. I look forward to your posts.

I've had a problem with my GE profile fridge (bottom drawer freezer), purchased in 2006. My GE Profile refrigerator is running non-stop, is not keeping food cool in the refrigerator section, and continues to be very cold in the freezer (ranging from -18 to -1 fahrenheit) I called ****** and arranged for a technician to diagnose the problem. The first visit occurred on November 4, 2008. The technician could not diagnose problem, and then called the GE tech line. He then told me that the problem was caused by one of 3 things: main board, defrost heater, or a thermostat. The repair tech did not have the correct parts available, and said that they would have to be ordered, and a call to GE tech line again to confirm parts needed and he would call me back. I paid $70.00 for this visit. A different technician arrived at my home on November 6th, and told me that it was not a defrost heater or a thermostat problem, but rather that a new main board would be needed, and possibly a new damper. The main board was installed and the damper was forced half way open to keep the refrigerator cool while the technician called the GE service line to confirm this problem. The technician stated that he would call me back in a few days, and I paid $230 for a new main board. The forced damper kept the refrigerator fairly cool for about 1 week or so, but then the refrigerator became warm again and stopped reading the temperature accurately. I never received a call back from a technician, so I called ****** on Monday, November 24th, and arranged to have a technician come to the house again to see why the refrigerator was again 55 degrees, but yet reading at 34 degrees. A technician arrived on Friday, November 28th and replaced the main board again, and also replaced a damper sensor and stated that this should fix the problem. At the time that the technician was here, the vent was indeed blowing cool air into the refrigerator and the temperature appeared to be accurate. I left the house and ran errands for about 4 hours, and returned home to a warm refrigerator that read ?37? for the temperature. The refrigerator was running and there was no cold air blowing in the vents. So, this did not fix the problem. I then called ****** again, and discussed the problem, and the owner of ****** then comes over, and appeared to not really be concerned that I?ve had technicians here three different times over the past month, that I?ve paid $300 in repairs and still do not have a working refrigerator, and that I?ve had to keep my food and drinks in coolers for the past MONTH. The refrigerator has continued to run all weekend, non-stop. The temperature reading remains at ?37? and the refrigerator is warm. The freezer is working, and keeping the food frozen. I am starting to wonder how much this is costing me in increased electricity to keep the refrigerator running non-stop. I would prefer to unplug the refrigerator if it isn?t working, but I was told that I needed to keep it running to diagnose the problem. I am about at my wits end, and am about to push the damn thing into the street and go buy a new one.
