Refrigerator is making sounds

Our GSS25WGPH BB model refrigerator makes a moaning sound during certain periods of time. My wife says is sound like ghosts are in the refrigerator or near the back. Neighbors said they had a similar problem and a tech replaced a board. The sound is not there all the time (maybe 30 min. at a time) Is this a common problem and is it easy to fix on your own?

Refrigerator making noise like ball bouncing

No. This is not a great deal. Your compressor is switching off at times which makes the sound, but it is a power saving technique adopted by the manufacturer. It is certainly not a problem.

GSS25WGPH CC,, unit three years old, am getting

Hi, it sounds to me as though the solenoid for the water dispenser is energizing when you push it but may be plugged up with water deposits I'm not sure how this dispenser is set up or if there is a way for you to get to it and check this out. I would turn off the water at back and see if there is a way to get inside to check for a blockage of some kind. I'm betting there is. Check and see what you can do about cleaning it, and also turn off the power as there is voltage to the solenoid. Keep me posted on what you were able to do on this.

Several possibilities. Clogged water filter (can be eliminated if you dump the ice bucket..if it makes two more batches of ice it's not the filter). Frozen water container (behind lower refrigerator drawers) or bad fill valve behind the refrigerator where the water line goes in. Likeliest is water valve.

Final possibility is a frozen water line inside freezer door. This would NOT be desired nor would you be fixing it yourself. Good Luck.

GE Model GSS22JERFBB moaning sound form freezer section

That's the fan motor. Either the fan blade is hitting something or the motor is going bad. Either is a cheap fix.

The refrigerator makes a buzzing sound for a few seconds and then stops.

It is very possibly the fanblade either touching the side of the cowling or some ice.
