SOURCE: GE GSS25WGMCC, Ice Forming On Freezer Interior Surfaces

i had the same problem and i replaced the defrost heater and it worked fine for about one month but now having the same issue. Most of the time from what I have heard it is the defrost heater (about $60 part). I might have another issue going on with mine like a defrost thermostat. Your defrost heater is right under the panel on the inside of the freezer section. remove white panel on back side of freezer section and remove two screws and two wires and replace it and you should be fine.

SOURCE: Ice maker only dispenses crushed ice, won't dispense cubed ice anymore.

I have a GE TFX25ppbaaa refrigerator. The ice maker corkscrew motor would run and provide crushed ice only. The corkscrew motor would not run when the switch was moved to the cubed ice ( half moon) setting.

I replaced the large Light/ water/ crushed ice/cubed ice switch , ( product service number GEH WR55X129 ) ( part number GE 162D6372 PO17 )and it fixed the problem. Cost was about $43.00.

What could be causing a whistling sound from this GE side-by-side refrigerator (5 years old) when the compressor is running? The whistle sounds like someone blowing into the top of a glass bottle.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

GE model GSS22SGRBSS freeser fan slows down


Same problem and think this unit is a piece of JUNK. In 5 years of service i have had to replace the Water shut off Valve twice, and the heater located on the bottom of the freezer which helps to keep the freezer defrosted. The fan has a whistling sound constantly, within 2 days of putting something in the freezer it is full of ice. Sorry pal, but as I said this model is a piece of junk.

Whistling sound from inside freezer compartment


is this a loud whistling, like a dying bird stuck in your freezer, or is this a lower pitched, sort of gentle whistling sound. If its the former, you likely have a faulty freezer fan motor. replace
if its the latter, sounds like you may have a issue with the door damper, which allows the air flow from the freezer into the refrigerator. However, assuming you dont have any cooling problems, you didnt mention if you do, it may simply be a normal occurance, as some makes and models open and close this damper door automatically, and when it is closed, can sometimes cause a low whistling noise

New High Pitch sound


If the sound is from the compressor, the unit is likely under warranty...generally 5 years.  If the unit is frozen up and the sound is from a fan that is hitting ice, defrost the unit completely.  Other fans in the unit could also be squealing.  You'll have to be a detective.

Not cooling!


check the rear of the freezer you may find a build up of ice there if so you have a defrost problem chances are the heater is bad you can unplug ref and let thaw or you can tear into the rear (pretty easy) and defrost with hair dryer and look at theheater which is a glass tube usual only one at the bottom of the coils but some models have two one in the center you will most likely find them bad if they are not chrome looking then they are bad replace defrost thermostat also this is common rule.let me know what you find god luck
