Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW
Our g e side by side refrig. just about 4 yrs old was humming for some months and now the freezer is not freezing, refrig. is not cooling and compressor is very hot...........do we have to buy a new one?
My 4-year old Profile refrig was kind of 'howling' for seven minutes, then would quiet. Then howling would start up again, etc. etc. It was gonna drive me crazy.
GE tech came (very efficient operation) & replaced the controller board; he was gone within 40 minutes of showing up; my symptoms must have been common). He said the controller for the multi-speed fan for the freezer compartment was going bad (two big capacitors on the controller board were swelling at their tops) and the fan was 'hunting' for the proper speed. The speed changes were producing the howling.
Cost me $270 to replace, including the service call. Ka-ching!! I was pissed that capacitors on a 4-year old top-of-the-line refrigerator would fail (the capacitors were of Chinese manufacture, as probably was the entire controller board) AND be out of warranty, so I wrote GE's Chairman, Jeffrey Immelt. His office responded quickly, but offered only to pick up half the cost. I reluctantly accepted, but still the incident rankles me.

Could be the start relay device on the compressor. Does it try to start every minute or so?
