Question about GE GDS20SBS Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Open Question

GE Frig making noise periodically.

Due to water issues, we turned off the water to the icemaker 6 months or so. The icemaker switch is in the off position as well as the water feed to the icemaker. We are now having a periodic cycling noise coming from the middle/back(on the side behind a access panel) of the fridge. It sounds like some mechanical type cycle that goes over and over and the lights flash inside the fridge (or dim down) when the noise happens. Sometimes the noise will clear, but it seems to be staying for longer periods of time now. The fridge is two years old.

    refregerator making noise

  • ssudhakar Jan 28, 2008

    I own GE GSH25JFRFWW fridge. It is about 3 Yrs old now and started giving some hissing/machine noise like a motor/rotor spinning faster/harder behind the freezer ice rack on top left side of the fridge. It come and goes but quite frequently (every 10 or 15 minutes). I have my freezer level (1 being lowest and 9 being coldest) as level 1 and still hear the noise. When I turn the freezer level to 0 the noise stops basically because it is like turning OFF the freezer section I believe. It would be great if someone can provide a solution for this/similar issue.

SOURCE: My GE profile refrigerator makes a fan noise

Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, it sounds like you may have a wire that is hitting the fan blade wich can be seriouse as if it shorts out it could catch fire. A trick to fix this is to take off the cover and make sure the fan is clear or all wires and everything else, if there are wires either tape them back, hot glue them or redirect them away from the fan. I hope this helps you out.

Makes ice but is very slow to dispense and makes a load bumping noise


Turn off the water to the icemaker. Locate the plug from the icemaker to the freezer & disconnect it. There is usually 2 screws under the icemaker that mounts it to the freezer, remove them. Some may have a screw or 2 in the top also. these are only short sheetmetal screws. You should then be able to extract the icemaker, a short hose attatched to the icemaker will come out of the back of the freezer. When complete the freezer/frig will work fine. Thaw out the icemaker, drain the water out, inspect the rotating finger grate area for any objects. Shaking it upside down may help. Reinstall & test, if it doesn't work it is bad. You can take it to an appliance repair store to replace.

GE Profile making knocking noises at different times


I have the GE profile Refrigerator with ice maker in the refrigerator compartment. Mine was knocking loudly for long periods of time, so I finally removed the icemaker by removing the side panel in the icemaker compartment held with 1 phillips head screw, disconnecting the electrical plug (unclip), pulling the tab of the icemaker down (on top) and sliding it toward the door, thus removing it. There was ice frozen in the motor compartment that was the problem. I let it thaw out and re-installed. All was OK after that..

Icemaker noises on almost new GE Profile refrigerator


I have not heard of this issue but if it is coming from the icemaker, then it will have to be replaced. You are still under warranty so call to have them replace it now, otherwise the new icemaker will cost you about $125.

Fishy smell in frig


Change the filter. Depending on your water supply and where you are located, you will get a buildup of junk that smells like fish.
It should be changed about every 6 months.

GE refrigerator wiring diagram


Icemaker must be at 28 degrees to make ice. The harness supplying the power should have 120 volts there at all times, and the icemaker itself is the device that switches the power off and on once all requirements are met.
