Good day,
Lots of motors.
Evaporator fan motor in freezer compartment.
Condenser fan motor in the bottom rear of the machine next to the compressor.
Lastly, the compressor itself.
The first 2 can be replaced easily.
The compressor no. If you've determined it's the compressor, then unless the machine is under 5 years of age and under warranty, then it is unlikely it would be cost effective.

Some GE machines, from some time ago, made very weird sounds when running, but on contacting GE, they claimed that was the sounds a refrigerator makes when making cold.
I didn't agree but .........

Testimonial: "Thanks. I think it is probably the evaporator fan or condenser fan. I will call for repair."

Freezer is making a loud noise. sounds like the motor. GSS201EMA

inside the compressor there are springs which prevent the motor from banging against the case. If one of them breaks the compressor will make quite a bit of noise, It doesn't affect function but is very annoying.

Dv55ip empire wall gas furnace, the fan is very loud, needs help what to do.

Buday, it sounds like the blower fan and motor needs cleaning and oiling. This should be done annually and you can do it yourself. This should quite things down a bit.

According to your Owners Manual, here's what you need to do.

Servicing and Oiling the Fan Motor:
The fan motor should be cleaned and oiled once each heating season.
To reach the motor, withdraw the metal shroud surrounding the fan
blade by removing the screws on each side. Oil holes are located
on the top at each end of the motor. Use a few drops of #10 motor
oil. To clean the motor, blow air through its ventilation openings
with a vacuum cleaner or low pressure air source (canned air with a
straw nozzle like you clean your computer with works well).

Clicking sound from control panel of my new glass top samsung electric range every 30 secs or less. as the oven is warming up to temp. It continues after it reaches temp. but not as bad....

This clicking sound is a result of the heating element cycling on and off as it tries to maintain a temperature. It heats up rapidly to a maximum, safe temperature and once the maximum is met it shuts off for a couple of seconds so it does not overheat the cooktop and/or your temperature setting. As far as the clicking, just how loud is it? If it's minimal and only fantly noticable then it's normal. If it is quite loud and annoying that may be a whole other issue. Does this information help? Let me know.
Before I forget, there should be a section in your Owner's Manual explaining that the clicking sound is part of it's normal activity.
