The evaporator fan is supposed to speed up when the fridge needs to cool down quickly; then slow down. So if it's just a normal sort of loud/soft whirring, then that's normal.

But if you have ice buildup on the back wall and roof of freezer, then you have encountered the dreaded GE crappy defrost system flaw. That causes ice to build up everywhere you can see, and where you can't see, like on (and in!) the evaporator motor. When the motor kicks into high, it impacts the ice buildup, and buzzes like a chain saw.

Solution is to unplug the fridge and let all the internal ice melt. Or get a blow-dryer or heat gun and carefully heat the freezer back wall, etc. Don't get it too hot, or you can melt the plastic!!! Be patient.

Sometimes the evaporator fan makes this noise. This could be a sign of it going out but i wouldnt worry about it untill something actually goes wrong.

My car vibrates causing this loud hum while

;You most likely have a wheel bearling or hub assembly that is bad. You should be able to narrow the hum down to one side or the other. Other possibilities are a noisy engine accessory, such as a bad bearing on a alternator, or power steering pump, but you should be able to make that noise show up, just by rev ving up the engine, so if it only shows up when the car is moving, check out your wheel bearings.

A whirling, humming sound that increases with acceleration

if the sound increases with vehicle speed, it is a drive issue, like wheel bearings or front wheel drive gears. if it increases with engine rpm, it could be a bad engine bearing, alternator or water pump.
