You need a new Fan motor . Or oil in the right place may do if it not worn by now.

    FINALLY fixed this problem. It's NOT the fan motor. Tried that. It's NOT the control board. It's NOT how full you load the freezer or fridge. Mine is full. The problem is this: When they ship the units from the factory, there are two pieces of rubber trim that seal the left and right side of the fan box at the back of the freezer. During shipping, the trim slides down, exposing a 1" to 1/2" gap where air can get sucked in. This turns the fan box into a musical instrument. FIX: I simply put some electrical tape over the open spaces, and the howling stopped. It's been a week with no sound at all. Previously it howled all day, every day. The proper fix is to loosen the fan box and slide the trim back up into place, but putting tape over the gap will do the same thing and is easier. Enjoy your quiet kitchen! P.S. to GE: Please put some sealant on these gaskets before you ship them from the factory, so that they do not slide out of place during shipping. I'm sure they were silent when they left the factory, but you need to account for shipping. And inform your telephone staff of this fix.

Check the reservoir behind the crispers for frozen lines. If it is froze it will take several days to thaw out with the frig below 40 degF. If it is not frozen you can disconnect the line at the water valve and see if the lever is operating the valve. Switch, water valve and waterlines and filter. process of elimination to find the culprit. Eric

My fridge is howling pretty loudly when ever it runs , the howling is coming from behind the ice maker turned the ic e maker off but unit st ill howls what s wrong


Hi, It sounds like the evaporator fan motor is going bad or there is frost building up and hitting the fan blade.
Unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear panel inside the freezer and locate the fan.
You can plug the refrigerator in and see if the fan is making the noise.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Howling noise


I don't see anything located directly behind the icemaker on this model. Try to better isolate the location of noise if you can. If the icemaker is at fault, I wouldn't bother trying to repair. Order another one. One other thing to check is the water flow. When the noise happens again, stick your finger in the ice mold and feel for water. If it just filled, then problem may be in the water valve. Hope this helps,

Ice build up on fan


problem is most likely caused by water overflowing from ice tray and then freezing to motor, hold light switch in and see what happens when tray fills up. Regards Advisor
