A side by side GE refrigerator with a loud hum

I have a side by side GE refrigerator with a loud hum (about a C) that can be heard upstairs and outside. The fan is O.K.
It seems to be coming from the lower back of the fridge. No number settings on the thermostats affect the sound. It develops after being on a while. The refrigerator works fine.

Hello Kchoffman73,

It sems we developed the same problem.
The hum seems to be coming from the bottom rear of the
fridge.

we have a GE side-by-side model TFX25JR.
The fridge is about 12 years old.

Whats the status of your fridge ? Did it ever stop
humming ? Did you replace or repair it ?
Does it still work ?

Thanks

Loud humming noise


Stick you hand in the freezer, touch the back wall of freezer, see if you feel a strong or lite vibration equal to the hum you are hearing. If so, the you have a bad evap fan, if not then pull unit out from wall and see if hum is load toward the bottom rear portion of the frig, if so contact a repair tech.

A high pitched loud hum (about a C) is coming from the freezer


That is your compressor. The bearings in them go bad and overheat. Sometimes it will even keep the compressor from restarting. You need a compressor.

Comppresor stoped working


Go to the back of the machine and take the lower rear plate off. Taking this plate off will expose the compressor. Check to see the compressor is humming or is hot. If niether take off the relay (located on the side of the compressor) Shake it and if a loud rattling noise is heard replace it. If no rattling noise or the compressor is hot or humming then the compressor is bad.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Thanks,

LOUD HUMMING NOISE


Here's my thoughts:

Make sure it is level.

Could be some things inside the fridge vibrating against each other.
