This Fridge is 3 years old and recently started making noise when the freezer fan is running. I pulled the ice maker and rear inside freezer panel and discovered it was the plastice freezer fan that was the culprit. It stopped just as I had made this discovery. I carefully put everything back together to ensure the palstic panel did not make contact with the fan. I thought all was well for about 2 weeks and the noise is back. It sounds as if the fan blades are barely making contact with something. It sounds like a straw in a bicycle spoke.

Re: GE ADORA DSS25KSRDSS FREEZER FAN NOISE
Unplug your unit and check the fan blade by manually rotating it with your finger, check if the blade is not touching the fan blade frame. Check if the screws are not loose, align the fan blade and re tight the fan blade screws.

i think you have to check to make sure that the fan inside the freezer is cycling on. it will be concealed of course but you should be able to hear it. i replaced one once with the same symptoms and that fixed fridge portion of a 2002 or 3 whirlpool. make sure to listen closely and not mistake it for the stronger fan motor which operates in conjunction with and nearby the compressor.
could be the ice maker or the evaporator fan motor.you can try lifting the arm up on the ice maker and see if it stops,this will shut off the ice maker.also when you open the freezer door to lift the arm on the ice maker the evap fan motor should start when you open the door,you should hear it blowing around,is this the noise you hear?these are the two things i can think of that could make a noise up top,if not it could be the compressor or the condenser fan motor but these are down the bottom back of machine but still could be the problem,if the ice maker and evap fan motor both in the freezer are ok pull out the machine and remove the bottom back panel and check to see if the noise is coming from there where the condenser fan motor and compressor are,you're going to have to do some detective work to find the noise,hope this helps you out.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees See if water is in icemaker. Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects. If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that attaches to water line out of wall) If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker. If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running It moves air to the ref from the freezer Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge. Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean. There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card. Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear Clean condenser coils underneath .I'm including my article on Refrigerator Repair for your help and convenience.; Please click or copy and paste into browser for Article http://www.fixya.com/support/r5816737-fix_refrigerator_psychologically Thanks for using fixya Leo Ponder imufo2 PLEASE VOTE FOR ME IF THIS WAS HELPFUL
Problems not related. The first is most likely the fan, or possibly water dripping on to the fan and freezing, but usually the noise comes from the fan struggling to run. The cube problem could be as simple as the ice dispenser being put back in wrong. There is a metal lever under the ice tray that switches between crushed and cubed. Make sure it is seated properly.
The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.
Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).
Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.
Do you have any frost buld up in freezer compartment?if so sounds like a freezing issue.If no frost build up is your fan running in freezer part if not you may need evap fan or a manual defrost.Your fan may have ice stoping it from turning.If your fan is running you may need to pull off your start switch located on your compressor.Shake it around if you here noise like burnt parts in it you will need a start switch.And remmember never turn your fridge up full blast normal is good or you will freeze it up. Good luck:)
I recently fixed a similar problem with my freezer. I searched first and found this and a few other sites which listed this and wanted to provide input for anyone in the future.
I have a GE GSH25JSRF SS. It is about 3 years old. Several months ago I noticed when the evaporator fan in the back of the freezer turned on it would make an awful howling or whistling sound. Basically sounded like what you would hear from the window of an older house if the wind outside was blowing real strong. It was loud enough to hear on the other end of the house.
I was convinced that it HAD to be the air blowing over the venting or a gap that created that sound. But I read different solutions on the internet and decided to take a chance on simply replacing the evaporator motor and attached fan blade. That solution worked and my house is quiet again, thank god.
I ordered the parts from a supplier on the internet. Keep in mind, though, if you're not real handy it may be more than you bargain for. Might be easier to have a service guy come out.
I'm still not sure exactly what aspect of these parts caused the howling sound. It could be a bearing within the motor or perhaps the fan blade slipping due to wear. Either way, it's fixed now. Just wanted to share. Thanks.
It sounds like it could be ice around the fan motor. Unplug it and let it defrost for about 12 hrs with the doors open. Plug it back in and see if it has quit making the noise. If it did it probably needs the defrost timer replaced. Good luck.
