There is a small motor in the back that connects to the fan that blows the air across the condensing coil under the unit. On my old fridge I sometimes have to get rid of a squeak by putting a small amount of oil on the steel shaft the connects this motor to the fan and allows a little oil to seep into the shaft seal/bearing on the motor where it has become "dry" over time and causes a vibration and "squeak". Involves pulling the fridge from the wall and removing a panel to get to this motor. I am sure that fridges all vary in the exact details of this arrangement but the basics are the same. What I mean is they all have this motor and fan.

Squeaky, chirping sound & exterior of fridge on veritical middle panel and freezer side are hot


I think you should try the following:

1. turn off the power.
2. clean/vacuum the lint under and behind the fridge.
3. after a few hours, power on.
If this does not work, you will have to call a repairer unless it is under warranty.
good luck

It depends on what is making the squeaking noise. Could be drum bearing, drum slides, tensioner pulley, pr even the leveling legs sometimes squeak.

Check the fan which cools the compressor from behind the fridge . If not working , replace the fan motor . ALSO , check to be sure the coils under the fridge are clean of dust (from the front only ) .

Ge side by side fridge makes loud thud sound...starting/stoping?


I am not sure when yours is making the noise, but I have a GE side by side and mine would make a similar noise when the compressor shut off. Check your warranty paperwork, I think GE has a warranty on the compressor for 5 years. It sounds like your compressor is going bad. If its in warranty, remember " the squeaky wheel gets the oil" complain until they fix it.
Sometimes when the repairman is there, it takes a little pushing to get them going in the right direction and to acknowledge compressor problems. Mine has a new compressor and runs like a champ.

GE fridge runs continuousely


Simple! The replacement fan ran the wrong way forcing air circulation the wrong way. Fortunately it was possible to reverse the moter shaft.
