SOURCE: Clicking noise with my GE GSS22WGP

Your PTC relay is bad it protects the compressor from over heating and overloading. You need to replace it.

First be sure to unplug frig. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the frig units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken

SOURCE: freezer fan is making whirring noise

Generally the freezer or (evaporator) fan is behind the panel in the freezer and in most freezers Side by side or standard type have a series of screws or along the outer edges of the freezer panel...some (like in side by side have a freezer fan and a fresh food fan....but not many generally cold air from the freezer is introduced into the fresh food compartment by way of a vent or port hole that aloows free flow of cold air into the fresh food area (but I digress) anyway take out the (several) up to 10 screws that hold the panel in place...if you don't do it soon the fan will go out and then the freezer compartment will iIce over and the fridge will cease to cool...once you pull the panel you will see it ...take it out and take to Johnstone supply, Marcones, or WW graingers for a good price on parts. If you have them where you live.
I hope this helped....If so please rate me. thanks ...the Fang

SOURCE: intermittent rattling noise in refrigerator

Do you have an ice maker? That noise could be the ice maker trying unsuccessfully to dump ice, usually caused by a defective heater to loosen the ice cubes prior to dumping them into the container.

Possibly even if your ice maker appears to be functioning normally, it may be attempting to dump ice several times before the ice is actually ejected and if you don't use a lot of ice, you'd never notice it.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: GE refrigerator model GSS22 WGMD ice maker motor

If you cant manually turn your auger motor, it may be bad. Does it dispense solid ice or no ice at all? Another thing may be your control panel. That could be bad too, it's the one sending juice to both your solenoid and auger motor.

GE side by side freezer, rhythmic whirring noise coming from freezer, at the top near ice maker.

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...

GSs 22 wg refrigerator humming noise from freezer. Tech came and replaced defroster heater element but humming remains. What is the likely cause of this? It comes and goes but is mostly on. Fridge...

most likely it's coming from the evap fan motor or the ice maker,try shutting the ice maker off first to see if that's the problem,if not then i'd go with the fan motor,you can try opening the freezer door,this usually turns the fan on,then push in the door switch button and see if the fan stops blowing and if the noise stops too.hope this helps you out.

GSS25JERFWW ge refrig makes a whirring noise that is driving me crazy.. noise appears to be coming from the freezer sid. i was told by a neighbor it could be 'evaporator fan motor'

Yes its possible you could have a bad evap fan motor bearings. Its part# wr60x10185 and will cost you about 60 bucks. This particular fan motor is not the easiest to replace. You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer and possibly the auger motor. I cant tell by looking at the image but I do know that this particular fan motor depending on the model can be a real pain. It can be done but may take you some time. If you remove the back panel and look up you will see the fan motor. It will be held in 2 screws on the bracket and will come with a new thermistor.
Hope this helps _MJ_

Seems to be a noisy fan on mb4210 combo

Could very well be the fan. The motors can cause interference. There may be a solution to get rid of the noise. Some copper shielding tape may help. You could rule out it being a microphonic preamp tube by turning the amp on as normal and tapping the tubes with something non-conductive. If you hear the tapping noise coming thru the speakers while doing this to a particular tube, replace it. With power tubes, the tops of them turn white on the top when they become microphonic, along with plenty background noise.

GE SidexSide PSS26SGPASS Makes Humming Noise

GE refrigs have a variable speed evaporator fan motor that is controlled by a computer board on the back of the refrig. now the noise you are hearing is most likely the fan motor ramping up and down in speed (some of my customers say it sounds like a ghost). if its a continuous ramping up and down then the speed cotroller on the board is bad and must be replaced. if its just an occasional sound then thats normal and nothing to worry over.

Btw the reason the noise stops when the door opens is because the fan shuts off when you open the door.

I have a GSL25JFPH BS refrigerator by GE. It made the whirring sound, a repairman came out and told me that the fan motor needed replacing, price of $277. I sent him away, and after a few minutes on the internet, saw on this site that a new circuitboard (part# WR55X10656) should fix it. I found it on ebay for $83, and it took about fifteen minutes to install. No more whirring!!
