Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

High-pitched chirp at same time every night

Every night, at 8:40pm our GE side-by-side fridge would make a high-pitched chirp. It would stop for a few minutes if we pulled it away from the wall or gave the fridge a small nudge. It did this through the entire night. Two repair men came and went without finding a solution (they never head the sound since it only happens at night). So, today we had a brand new Samsung side-by-side fridge delivered. 8:40pm arrived and so did the high-pitched chirp! Is it the water line going into the fridge? Help!

High pitch noises are very difficult to isolate. Since you have replaced the refrigerator, I would look for something else in the immediate vicinity that might be generating the sound.

Hi. Your refrigerator is under 5 years and the compressor is still under full warranty. Call Sears and get it fixed parts and labor included. There should be no charge to you whatsoever. Make sure they understand that on the phone when you set up the appointment. You would be better off having a different technician from Sears come out to your house, as the one that came was not honest with you. Good luck, Mack

SOURCE: Noise high pitch noise from the freezer on my side by side

Hi, Remove the rear inside freezer panel and you will be able to see the evaporator fan motor. The fan motor is what is squeeling.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Why is it chirping?


My guess is you probably have a loose screw or nut that is allowing something to vibrate when the condenser is running. Check the front cover on the bottom of the fridge see if that is loose. Hope this helps.

My GE Side by Side is about 4 years old and it has made a high pitched howling noise for a year or two. Everyone who comes to visit notices it. I can hear it in the bedroom at night. When I turn the fridge...


There is something going on with the fan in the refrigerator. It may be blocked by ice or it is blowing across a crack just right. Take some time to inspect the passageway between the freezer and the refrigerator, and you should find something out of place. If you can't find anything, turn the whole thing off and completely thaw it. When you turn it back on, it should be better.

How long is your warranty good? You might be able to get it repaired for free.

Freezer fan noise


What you need is a new updated computer main board. Thay are fairly cheap and easy to install. My GE Side By Side did the same thing and the new motherboard worked like a charm. I think that this is the one you need but you can email the seller with your model number and he will tell you which one to get WR55X10552 GE Refrigerator Mother Board fits WR55X10335s.gif GOOD LUCK

A high pitched chirp is a sign that you have a short on the load of your power supply. I just finished repairing one of these sets and it had a shorted horizontal output transistor and a bad flyback transformer.
