Question about GE GSH22JFR Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

My GE side-by-side refrigerator is making a fairly loud ticking sound--about once every second-sounds like a big clock.

It's making a fairly loud ticking sound--about once every second-sounds like a big clock. Ice maker works, but not ice or water in door.

    Thanks so much for your quick reply!

    It just doesn't seem like the water line to the ice maker could be frozen--it's still making ice cubes.

    It's just the ice/water dispenser in the door that's not working.

    Any other ideas?

    Just keeps on ticking!

    I thawed freezer and let it set for a little over 4 hours as suggested. But the minute I turned it back on, it began to 'tick' again, and hasn't stopped.

    By the way, the green indicator light blinks in time with the ticking, if that means anything.

    Can you think of anything else I can try?

Water line to ice maker is frozen. Thaw out freezer. Put food in dry ice cooler and open freezer door, reset to OFF, and thaw freezer for four hours. It'll work after that.

First you need to turn the freezer temp control back on(That just turned the whole refrigerator off)
The water dispenser may have stopped due to line freezing inside the refrigerator.
The ticking could have been the the element for the defrost cycle or the starter on the compressor.
So,turn it back on,set the temp to a normal setting and if the ticking is still there,wait 30 minutes to see if it stops,If no ticking is there when you restart it,wait 24 hour and check the temp inside as well as the water and ice dispenser,If all work,It is a defrost issue.If so you will either need a defrost timer,defrost element,or defrost thermostat.
If the ticking is still there,You will need to replace the start/run capacitor.

Unplug and closely examine the area for a loose fan blade or anything that may be causing the noise. Better now than to get damage that could be prevented. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE side by side fridge with Water and Ice despenser


djones, The evap fan motor should not change speeds in less than 1 minute of time. The fan motor has two speeds. Usually this is a indication of a failing main board. If you have a meter you can do a voltage check at the J-2 connector on the board. Check for 13VDC between pins J2-3 and J2-8 and 8 to 13VDC between J2-3 and J2-4. If this voltage stays steady, your problem lies in the evap fan motor. If this voltage drops out or fluctuates, it's more than likley the board....Catriver...post back.
