Ge after replace fan still fan not working

GE refrigerator model #pss26sgpass side by side only 3.5 years old. The past few weeks the refrigerator started growling and making weird noises for few seconds at the time, coming in from the freezer side. Later on (starting this past weekend) temperature started going up in both the refrigerator and freezer. We constantly rested the refrigerator trying to bring it to the normal temperature. We replace new fan at the back of the freezer, we changed it. still fan not working. Temperature remains in freezer at mid 20's, in refrigerator mid 50's. We reseted the refrigerator couple of times few different intervals of time. Didn?t help. There?s some air coming out of the freezer side. We also cleaned a part at the bottom of the component I think its called condenser, didn't help. Please help us. Thank you.

    I'm having similar troubles. In addition, my ice dispenser will not dispense ice through the door. It makes ice, just does not dispense.

    Intermittent growling noise coming from back of refrigerator side

  • Anonymous Mar 24, 2014

    THE MOANING NOISE SEEMS TO SOMETIME LAST A LONG TIME AND OTHER TIMES ONLY A SHORT WHILE. BUT IT'S LOUD ENOUGH AT NIGHT TO KEEP US AWAKE. I THINK IT'S COMING FROM THE FREEZER SIDE UPPER HAFT OF FREEZER.

Something to check for. Is the top of the refrigerator door lower than the freezer door? If so the ref. light may not be turning off all the time. Pull bottom panel off to expose hinges. The ref hinge should have an adjuster. Adjust door up to be level with freezer.

I would not call a Technician out because it will cost you too much money that you can put aside for a good refrigerator that does not have all of the electronic gadgets that keep it running GE runs behind LG with their great looks. But they both have costly failures when it come to quality electronic controls. I really hate to be honest. Wait that is what you want right? The truth is you can buy a better quality refrigerator by purchasing one that has no electronic control boards. Simple defrost timers will last 3 times longer and the pain of paying a technician to come switch your motherboard out and leave in 15 minutes with $500.00 dollars is just too much guilt for me to carry to lie

Sounds like the defrost timer doing its job but with loud efforts. GE is known for its different sounds some clanks to clicks to popping. Thank God for good hearing but curse GE for its poor noise reduction efforts. This is why GE is cheaper than its other competitors. They cut corners welcome to the world of GE. BB

GE dishwasher model GLD4200 making a growling noise


I do not know of these machines but would say it sounds like bearings related to its rotating arm if it has to deal with water.
It would have a seal at the back before the bearings which has failed so water has leaked onto it causing rust to form in the bearing which builds up fuses the ball bearings together in clumps, make it hard to rotate so you get a grinding noise followed later by squeaks as things deteriorate.
So sadly it needs a service call out or it will grind to a halt, this happens say after a few days of non use letting the rust level build up.
You can use it but at some point it will not be able to rotate and it will just stop with some odd error message if it has that ability. Sorry for the answer.

Hope this helps...........

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 GSL25JFR Freezer fan noise.


You are correct in believing the fan is going to be a problem. The evaporator fans inside the freezer compartment are common at going bad. I believe it is due to the extreme temperature and moisture conditions inside the application. The noise is the stator or bearing equivalent going out, the speed should remain constant. It may eventually make a screeching noise upon start up, or just lock up completely. The good news is replacements are relatively cheap and easy to find. If you do replace it yourself, make sure the fan blades are blowing in the right direction. If possible, remove the old one and bring it with you to the local appliance parts supplier and he should be able to help you get the right one, it will probably be a kit of some sort with multiple mounting brackets, screws, and maybe even a couple of blades. don't let this intimidate you. Most of this you will not use.
