GE zv950 monogram hood problem

Sirs, I'm in need of a solution. For the last 3 years since building this new home we continue to have a noise problem coming from this hood. The noise is being created by some sort of flapper above the fan motors. Every thime the wind blows over 12 MPH it lifts up those flappers and chimes. There have been many times when the sound has been so loud that we have to close our bedroom door to get some sleep, and its 75 feet away from the kitchen. GE has been of no help what so ever --even after I sent them a tape of the sounds it creates. No manager of GE would stand for these sounds in there home for 10 minutes much less hours and hours. I have had the roof vent goose neck replaced with a low profile exhust vent and that has reduced the noise by maybe 20% but it is still very noises and often a factor. One can not remove the fan motors to access this area of the hood because it bolts from the top down. I have a decortive wrap around GE cover that goes up about 13 feet into the attic and it would need to come down to remove the duct work and try to address the problem. Any suggestions for me? Could I harm myself if I removed those flappers? I live in SW Florida where cold weather is not often an issue. The last time I talked to GE they suggested an insulation foam type tape be applied to the outside of the cover to soften the sound---ya that would sure look nice on there $1200.00 hood in our kitchen. The sounds are driving me to the edge! Really appreciate your reply In Advance Thank You Best Pete

You should be able to remove the flappers they are there for energy reasons. I cannot see how a little fresh air entering your house could be a problem. By the way I had the same problem in Ft laud with my hood. Just held the flapper up and used a touch of super glue to lock the shaft. Good luck

Ice continuously builds up on lower coil(2 inches on entire coil)

If ice is building up on any type of cooling coil, generally this is an indication that your device is low on freon. If your refrigerator is doing this then you are going to have it serviced by a technician as the ability to do it at home is limited. Generally the home owner does not have the tools or equipment to service a refrigerator. Do it soon before you loose all of your freon, and thus your freezer/refrigerator contents.

Temperature control

The freezer is usually cooled by the compressor, the fridge is then cooled by an evaporator fan motor ($30). If this fan seizes or slows down then the fridge warms up (it sometimes starts squealing before this happens). The fan may spin, but it if goes too slowly, then it would blow enough cool air into the fridge, especially if it is opened quite frequently.

If you think it is the evaporator fan motor:
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
UNPLUG fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

GE Monogram will not accept freezer/fridge

Turns out the problem was because we didn't shut the freezer door tightly. The temperature re4set itself in about three hours. All OK and no expense :-)
