    The noise comes from the area at the top of the freezer - not the bottom where the motherboard is......

I know of two things which can cause the noise. Since it hasn't always made the noise I would guess the motherboard is making it. Try to pinpoint the noise. Your motherboard is on the back. Part 801 on this diagram. If this is where the noise is coming from and you can put up with the noise, you can wait till you have more trouble with it. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=PSS26LSRCSS&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=0432&modelName=REFRIGERATOR-R-SERIES&diagramPageId=00009&componentDescription=SEALED%20SYSTEM%20&%20MOTHER%20BOARD&documentId=G0503214&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list
Another cause I've seen is because of the unique shape of the condenser coil. With the air pulled through it it can make a noise. It may help to clean the coil which may also help the ice situtation. It's part 730 on the diagram.

    In the freezer near the top is the evaporator fan and it could be getting partially blocked by ice buildup causing the noise you're hearing. Or the motor it's self can be making the noise because of wear.

HI this is just a test the icemaker runs when you first turn it on, its not suppose to fill up the tray, it will fill it when the icemaker reaches the correct temperature, if its not cold enough in the freezer it wont kick on, if its been sitting for several hours and still wont fill or make ice, you need a new icemaker. The new icemaker part # is WR30X10093

I have a GE side by side freezer/refrigerator. The


When you say "The items in the freezer are cold with some ice on them. I have tried emptying the ice tray, but that does not help." Is there literally ice from the ice bucket dripping on the food and refreezing, or is there a layer of frost on the food? the noise you are hearing is most likely due to the evaporator fan motor running at alternating low and high speeds. This is a variable speed motor, but there could be quite a few reasons why the motor is not rotating at regulated speeds. the fan motor itself, a faulty thermistor, you could also have an issue with your main control board, or least of all a wiring issue.
You would be wise to have it inspected by a reliable refrigerator repair service, to at least determine what the problem is for certain.

Hi sckk,
ngafm at your service,

Your indoor ice and water keeps getting iced up.
There is an air leak somewhere between the ice and water dispenser on the door and the freezer!
there are many places that this may be. But usually the spring loaded door where the ice drops out to the door ice machine!
It takes a good tech sometimes a couple visits changing a couple of parts till he gets it.
There is no sure fire way to diagnose which part is the culprit thats leaking air.You need an experienced tech that eyeballs it and knows what parts to choose first to be replaced.
The air leak almost microscopic to the eye.
Sometimes you take ice from the door and the crack only closes full some time after wards. Then the tech comes the next day and sees nothing. Or it is intermittent problem!

My advice is only a trained tech can remedy this problem, this time!
If I were there I'm sure I could nail it down!

You need hands on service!
Bless You ,
ngafm,
please give me a goo rating before you sign off.
Thank you.
