Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
Noise continues when ice-maker is off. This unit is 8 months old. Nothing should be going out. Ice buildup on the circulating fan? If so whats a long term fix? The noise occurs all the time, but the noise it self isnt constant. Almost like a reving, noise goes whhr, silent, whrr, silent, whhrr silent. I thought maybe it was the unit that dumps the icecubes over, like something was stuck and that motor was still going. But I'm not sure.
Typically the freezer fan motor should be replaced, the issue usually lies with the tachometer within the fan motor, the main control board is not sensing the proper speed of the fan motor and therefore can't operate it correctly. In many cases the main board gets replaced too to ensure the most up to date software, as GE has had NUMEROUS software revisions on those main boards over the last 11 years. You would need to capture the complete model number from the appliance it's self in order to see if your main board has had preceding part numbers. Pleazer Appliance...

Even though the fridge was given to you it still has a 1 yr warranty from manufacture date. Look on the sticker inside the fridge and see if it gives the manufacture date or get the receipt from you gave it to you. Call 1-800-905-9505 for service. They are nationwide (US). If you find out it is older than 1 yr then use the model # on that sticker and go to www3.sears.com to get the correct part # for the icemaker. Unfortunately these come as a whole unit and can't replace parts. Once you have the correct part # I bet will find a good price on ebay for a new ice maker. If you need help finding the part # or any other questions let me know. If you feel I didn't help solve your problem please let me know before you rate this solution.

The whistling is caused by the air circulating fan located just behind the light. It is easily accessed by removing the light cover and the two small hex screws above the light. To stop the whistling I simply turned the freezer off and pulled the fan cover out slightly to reveal the fan blades. I then pushed the blades down, toward the bottom of the until the blades stopped and i could feel the shaft slightly protruding from the top of the blades. Repositioning the blade has stopped the incessant whistling. Hope this helps!

check the defrost timmer if it is working you need a defrost heater you can manually turn the defrost timmer to check the heater the timmer turns off the compressor and on the heater 2 or 3 times a day the timmer is a box with a round knob sticking out of it turn the knob tell it clicks look under the front for it or in the back most refrigerators have a wiring diagram on the back or by the compressor

There are some things that you can check to address the issue with the icemaker that overflows:
1. Gears - The first thing you should check are the gears on the front of the icemaker. To access these gears; remove the front cover off the icemaker.Once the cover is off, inspect the gears and if any of the teeth are missing they are bad and needs replacing. Also check to see if the small gear has slid forward enough to miss the big gear. If so, put a small drop of lock tight on the shaft and push the gear back on.
2. Fill tube - The next thing you should do is look at the fill tube to see if it is clogged with ice. If it is clogged with ice, pull it out the back of the refrigerator and clean all the ice out with hot water. The water valve causes this problem so replace the water valve or it will happen again.
3. Sometimes water will enter the icemaker too fast causing the first cube-mold to overfill before the water gets a chance to run to the other cube-molds. To fix this problem remove the cube separator and run a bead of RTV (silicone) at the top of the first cube mold. Then reinstall the cube separator and the problem should be fixed. Note that if this is the problem it will only be a small leak; a few drop of water per cycle. If you are getting lots of water overflowing the water valve is bad and needs replacing.
The most common problem with noisy refrigerators is the fans. First, where is the noise coming from? If it's coming from the freezer then it's probably the evaporator fan motor. Take the evaporator cover (in back or bottom of freezer) off. Once it's off you should be able to see the fan and confirm that it's noisy. (Note that in some refrigerators the fan cuts off when you open the door so depress door switch for this test). If the fan is noisy replace it. If its not the fan and the noise is coming from the freezer, then it might be normal. At times there will be a groaning noise coming from the freezer. This is when the compressor has just cut off.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.
