Freezer side is making an extremely loud humming sound. Ice maker is working fine. No ice buildup anywhere in the freezer that we can see. Loud humming goes on for a few minutes each hour.


Hey Joanne, I appreciate your inquiry!

Based off my understanding the freezer side of your Frigidaire refrigerator is making a loud humming noise. The humming sound could be coming from your compressor. If the sound is a new development it may be a possible issue with the fan pushing further against the wall. You may need to seek help from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you from purchasing any unnecessary parts. Hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Have a loud humming noise


You probable have ice buildup around your evaporator fan. You would need to remove the evaporator cover inside the freezer to expose the fan and see if you have ice around it.

I have a Danby DUF1596WE standing freezer. There is ice build up on the back wall. The fan is making a very loud noise. The freezer is still working. I had to shut it off due to the loud noise.


The chances are that the ice buildup is now in contact with the fan, hence the noise when fan hits ice.

As a short term fix, power the freezer off and let it defrost naturally, this will cure the immediate problem. In the long term, I presume that this is a self defrosting freezer, so you appear to have aproblem with the defrost cycle. You MAY find that a long power off and defrost will cause things to reset and it may well cure your problem anyway

GE Fridge Motor Super Loud


Open the freezer door and see if the sound is there or if its near the floor. This needs to be corrected soon to prevent damage to your refrigerator. Your explanation makes be think the fan inside the freezer is loose or has ice buildup around the blades or the fan blade has become unbalanced in some way...Let me know and please rate me, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ge monogram ice maker makes loud churning noise. Any suggestions


Mine has been doing the same thing and foound it was the pump cavitating (dry). What caused it on my unit is there was buildup of minerals on the sides of the freezer plate so the ice slab wouldn't slide all of the way down onto the grid. When the unit would start the next cycle the water would ramp up over the stuck slab and down into the ice bin and then the pump would start making the noise. A related problem could be the cutter grid not heating so the slabs back up and results in the same issue. Look up into the freezer plate next time it makes the noise and see if there is a slab partially stuck.

GE Profile Refrigerator (Model #20) w/freezer on the bottom


If the problem disappears (for a while) when the freezer reaches 32F, then I know what the problem is.

The GE Profile refrigerators (and likely other models as well) often don't defrost properly, especially in humid climates. So they can develop ice buildup internally, especially if the air vents at the back of the freezer are blocked by frozen food. Once that happens, that ice can interfere with the cold air circulation booster fan that runs when the freezer temperature is too warm. Then you get a LOUD buzzing noise from the fan blades, as they bang into the ice.

The immediate "solution" is to be sure nothing blocks the air vents, and then to melt the ice that interferes with the fan. You can turn the fridge off for a while (with the food removed so it doesn't spoil), and/or get a hair dryer and heat the inside back of the freezer, until the ice melts and falls away from the fan. (Just be careful not to block the nozzle of the hair dryer, or it may burn out from overheating!)

But the ultimate solution is to buy another refrigerator, one that is NOT a GE! And that makes me sad, because GE used to make GREAT refrigerators. My last GE refrigerator is nearly 20 years old, and still works well, and it does so QUIETLY.
