Question about Hotpoint HSS25GFP Side by Side Refrigerator
Sounds like a fan is running for 3-5 seconds then pauses for 1-2 seconds then repeating almost 24 hrs a day. During the pause it howels like an air conditioner running. If you open the freezer door you can here the fan behind the ice maker is were the noise comes from and it continues while the door is open.
It really sounds like you need to replace the evaporator fan motor if it sounds like an a/c fan (if it sounds cyclic, metal on metal, screeching, or even like a light aircraft then the bearings are probably failed). The only addition I would make to this is when checking the fan motor with the back cover off you check for any undue ice build up on the coil which may be causing the howling (TO RULE THIS OUT). Hope this helps.
