Re: fridge is whistling

Mine was making a moaning, whistling noise coming from just above the ice maker. It happened when the fan speed changed. I learned on this site that the motherboard was probably defective.
Rather than go thru GE, we found a new one online for 66 bucks. I replaced it in about ten minutes and it's all fixed. Poor materials on the original, but this site was very helpful.

Re: fridge is whistling

Your question is a bit vague, but usually this sound is the evaporator fan motor, located inside the freezer compartment. If so, the fan motor is a relatively easy thing to replace.

Re: fridge is whistling

Thanks for the interest in my problem. Yes, I can see the fan in the freezer. It's on the back wall of the freezer, and I can see the fan slow down & stop when I open the door. It is a home fridge.

High pitch noises are very difficult to isolate. Since you have replaced the refrigerator, I would look for something else in the immediate vicinity that might be generating the sound.

My GE Refrigerator makes a terribly high pitched whistling noise when it is running. Any ideas? It works fine.

If you can track down exactly where the noise is coming from I would guess it's coming from the control board. Some are located on the back about middle ways up on the right side. Some are located in the control area inside the fridge. A model number would help with locating it.
