    I googled "My GE is making a woodpecker sound" and found this site. Please tell me which of the two problems it was. My exact same fridge (3 years old as well) started doing this last week. It sounds exactly like a woodpecker behind the fridge and is happening all day and night. Anywhere from every 2 minutes to every 10-15 minutes at random. Did you happen to fix it? And how? Or how much???? Please share any helpful info. Thanks, MARY FRANCES

Check and see if nosie is coming from inside freezer or behind refrig. Make a big dif as to where it is coming from. Also need to know if it only does it late at night or all the time.

Best way to tell if it is inside freezer is to open the freezer door, hold in on the light switch(s) for about three min. or so and see if you hear it. If it is there, then you either have a defrost prob and ice is building up around evap fan or you have a bad evap fan.

If from the back of unit, then pull rear metal cover on lower back and see if you hear it there. You may have a varmit that got caught between fan blade and housing..... be careful....you can get hurt or electrical shocking....

How can I fix my fridge?


think twice. You replace this, but it still is a 14 year old fridge. Next week something else can go down. The newer ones use less power to cool the same amount.
Buy a new one, you have warranty, and in its lifetime it will save you money on the electricity bills.

ARS2665AC - Every 3 minutes noise


Unless this is somthing to with the ice maker, it is likely to be the refrigeration pump cycling on and off. It is possible that the pump is being stalled upon start up. Another possibility is that the pump vibrates more as the pressure is being built up and perhaps one of the rubber mountings has worn or perished. As long as the fridge is still working properly as you say then this should not be a cause for concern unless it becomes annoying. Regards

My built in side by side is making a noise about every 30 minutes or so that sounds like a woodpecker pecking on it...about 10 times. It is driving me crazy! Have any idea what this might be?


I have the exact problem with my built0in side-by-side Monogram. 1 yr 3 months old, and it sounds m=like a woodpecker for 3 seconds approximately 1ce/hr. Does not appear related to ice maker. You can create the sound by changing the temp setting on the drawer at the bottom. As you command a lower temp, the sound happens a couple seconds. Actually sounds like a solenoid opening and closing at 60Hz frequency, as though a control board were feeding AC to a DC coil. Any ideas? Fortunately, this fridge has a 2 year warranty, but this should not happen to a $6K dual condenser fridge in just over a year!!

Fridge running but not cooling


It sounds like you are having a problem with your defrost cycle. If your unit either does not go into defrost, or you have a defective defrost componet, it will cause your evap. to freeze. Hope this helps

Hotpoint side by side has recently bugun making a lot of noise


Check for frost in the freezer compartment that may suggest a defrost problem which would cause it to run for extended times and make more noise. The other possibility is that if the fan is making a up and down type of noise, it will need a new fan in the freezer section due to a faulty bearing in the motor.
