Freezer fan in my GE side by side refrigerator surges and whistle

Freezer fan in my GE side by side refrigerator surges from time to time making a whistling sound. Is this normal. I suspect it occurs during normal defrost cycles but I am not sure. I just replaced the defrost heater element in it as well.

With you model and brand I would want to check the voltage on the fan and shaft play. Meaning the fan may be going bad or the voltage being altered at the motherboard. I do know your model with the control board that it has if a fan becomes defective the board is also affected. If the fan goes bad and replaced it is very possible that the board will fail and cause the new fan to fail. If you need help with diagnostics please let me know, Thanks, Sea breeze

GE GSS25IFRF "surging"


The motherboard (part 801 on diagram) controls the speed of the fans and it may be going bad. The round type of condenser fan you have may be the cause of the weird sound.(part 730) Make sure it's clean. As long as it's cold you can run it just beware it may stop. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5241174&diagram_id=24104631#d24104631

Whistling sound from inside freezer compartment


is this a loud whistling, like a dying bird stuck in your freezer, or is this a lower pitched, sort of gentle whistling sound. If its the former, you likely have a faulty freezer fan motor. replace
if its the latter, sounds like you may have a issue with the door damper, which allows the air flow from the freezer into the refrigerator. However, assuming you dont have any cooling problems, you didnt mention if you do, it may simply be a normal occurance, as some makes and models open and close this damper door automatically, and when it is closed, can sometimes cause a low whistling noise

Whisling noise coming out of inside the refrigerator. Louder when freezer door is open. maybe ice maker area?


The whistling is caused by the air circulating fan located just behind the light. It is easily accessed by removing the light cover and the two small hex screws above the light. To stop the whistling I simply turned the freezer off and pulled the fan cover out slightly to reveal the fan blades. I then pushed the blades down, toward the bottom of the until the blades stopped and i could feel the shaft slightly protruding from the top of the blades. Repositioning the blade has stopped the incessant whistling. Hope this helps!

Freezer fan surges up and down


Don't worry, that is a variable speed DC fan motor. Fan speed is regulated by the mother board as needed.

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.
