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

SOURCE: evaporator coil freezing, replaced main control

It is possible you have a defective fan motor in the condenser area or evaporator area. Sometimes when they become defective they will run for a while and just warm up and stop while the compressor continues to run. I learned that one on four costly returns to the home. The cost was to me not the customer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: GSS23WSTA refrigerator freezer section is getting warm.

Just the fist indication that defrost is not taking place. Most likely the defrost heater and defrost thermostat will need replaced. part number Click Here=> WR51X10101 for heater and will be easy to spot if burned out and you should also replace the defrost thermostat just in case part number Click here=> WR50X10068 Let me know if you need assistance, you may reach me through Appliance 911 or Sea Breeze Appliance Parts and Technical Services

SOURCE: GE Side by Side Refrigerator no longer cooling.

If not cooling or signs of not defrosting we will need to check the compressor start components, fan mortors and motherboard. Let me know and I can guide you through this. Sea Breeze

Typical problems that can cause this:

- iced up evaporator due to defrost problem
- failed thermistor (temperature sensor)
- compressor not running

all of the above could be due to a failure in the main control board

there is a diagnostic mode that can help you diagnose cause

Why is my GE Monogram, model zfsb26dnd SS, emitting an odor from the front bottom behind the base grill. The air blowing from underneath produces the smell when the fan is operating. The odor appears


The coil underneath the refrigerator, called the condenser coil, is probably blocked with dirt. This causes undue heat on that coil and the dirt stinks. The condenser coil must be cleaned thoroughly.

Our GE Monogram (model #ZFSB27DAG SS) side by side is not keeping the refrigerator side cold. It seems to be working fine on the freezer but not the ref. although the ref. side does work but just barely....


First start by Cleaning Your Condenser. If your condenser is extremely clogged. Clean it and let it run over night. Then check if there is a difference in the morning. If your condenser is clean then disregard. Make sure that you have good air flow into the fresh food(refrigerator) section threw the damper control. Click here to see your damper it is number 426. Another thing to check. Open your freezer and look on the back wall to see if there is defrost frost forming. Sometimes you have to remove the back panel to verify if your coils are clear. If you have a defrost problem starting it will restrict air flow into the refrigerator section. This is the most common problem on your model. If you remove the panel and the coils are frosted and restricting air. You can take a hair dryer and defrost them to get yourself by for a few days. This would either be your defrost termination switch, defrost timer or defrost heater bad. Here is your UNIT. Click Here to contact me.

Hi, We have a ge refrigerator gsh25sgpa-ss. Water is leaking down the back of the inside of the freezer. We have replaced the filter and the water valve, any thoughts?


The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? The defrost water
overflows into the ref. or freezer
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

GE refrigerator Model GTS18FBSARWW Don't have manual, as it came w/the condo. Don't know how to clean the coils or how to get to them, either. Thanks.


The condenser coil is located underneath the refrigerator on most models. YOu can access it from the front, or in some cases, in the rear. To access it from the rear, after pulling it away from the wall, you will have to remove the machine compartment cover screws and the cover itself. If it is the type i believe it is, it is called a no-clean condenser, but they still need occasional cleaning. It will be a barrel shaped condenser on the right side of the machine compartment. A good refrigerator tip for anyone looking to clean the condenser is to make sure you turn the fridge off or unplug before cleaning it.
