Question about GE Refrigerators

Open Question

We purchased a new home which came with GE Stainless Steel side by side refrigerator model # GSS23WSTA SS less than two years ago. Tonight when we came home, the ice maker/water dispenser motor is making a noise. Sort of like a loud motor running noise, near the top of the freezer section. Everything still works properly, including the water/ice dispenser on the front of the freezer door. I inspected what I could by removing the ice tray and everything looks as though it is in proper working order. Does anyone have any advice on where to go from here. I just want to make the motor quiet again and prevent and potential damage if there is a serious problem brewing. Mike Trevor Wesley Chapel, FL

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

I would check the door switch that turn the light on for freezer. When the door opens the switch changes to deactivate the controls on the dispenser panel and when shut should turn it back on. I will help you trace the problem because sometimes there is a broken connection from the dispenser panel to control board. Let me know, Sea Breeze

HOW MANY CUBIC FEET ARE IN MY GE PROFILE REFRIGERATOR TBX22PRBMLWW


Hello Terry Montag,

I would be guessing 22 Cubic Feet...
(and give odds)...!!!

Generally the 22 is a biggie in your MODEL numbers...
Like the "WW" typically means Wreally WHITE...
and "SS" means stainless steel.

In my less than HUMBLE opinion).

Finish on "stainless steel" door is deteriorating


Refrigerator was sold as 'stainless steel', but is not, a magnet won't stick to it.
There are many different alloys that are called 'stainless' steel but all of them have some chrome, some nickel and some steel. Depending on the strength of the magnet and the specific alloy, it may or may not adhere. Generally, the higher chrome and nickel content, the less magnetic it will be.
I think that the brushed surface of your fridge was coated with a kind of clear-coat to prevent fingerprints from adhereing to the brushed surface and that clear-coat is now missing in the areas of concern.
The only cure for tha would be the wholesale removal of the doors and the remaining clear finish and then respraying it with a quality clear finsh.
Ain't progress grand?
We considered all stainless stuff for our new home a couple of years ago, decided we liked black better and now hate that too.
