Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Bitchin' and moanin'

At present I cannot distinguish between the wailing and moaning sounds emanating from this poorly conceived, designed and executed appliance:.
Could it be:
A) a distressed humpback whale in my kitchen signaling its calf
B) a cat trapped behind the fridge for extended periods of time day & night
C) my own discouragement made audible upon sight or suggestion of this four-year old testament to caveat emptor.

Why is the model so inept? If I were to go to the bank withdraw a couple thousand dollars and throw them into the air it would feel better than approaching this behemoth when it's callling. Yes, it sounds more like a whale call. I could put it on the middle of I-40 with a sign saying "FREE~ FOR SCRAP METAL."
I can't give this refridgerator away and certainly wouldn't sell it to anyone I now... how could GE sell this thing. I've checked the recall lists it's a no show and yet there is a whole group of people with the same problem and some worse associated with this model and company.

What can I do? If I removed the freon would GE dump it it the ocean to create barrier reefs. Can they take it away and hand me half the cash back? Please advise,

Thank you

    I HAVE THE SAME ANNOYING PROBLEM!!! There are no other symptoms to describe. The GE website calls it a 'normal sound' due to the damper door opening/closing. If I knew what a damper door was I would rip it off myself. HELP!!!

    I think I’ve got the same problem – (or else my refrigerator is having *** with itself!) – there’s wheezing – heavy breathing – sounds coming from the Ice maker side – it is so load that my renters cannot sleep at night – it just goes on and on – (seems nothing to do with the compressor cycling on/off). The moaning sounds slowly increase in pitch (until it reaches its climax?) then drop down to a lower pitch and start over again! A distressed humpback whale may be the perfect description! Anyway – I unplugged the ice maker (inside the freezer – it has its own little connector plug) – and that stopped the noise!

    Looks like I’m buying a new ice maker – though this moaning one still makes great ice!

Your post was the most entertaining I've ever read. However, you didn't include much information. I can only assume the noise is coming from the compressor, that or it is possessed by a demon. Then you need to call a priest, which is another web site. If you can elaborate on the situation, I may be able to help. If it is any consolation, I feel your frustration. Recently I found out my Hewlett-Packard 4 in 1; printer, scanner, fax, copier, was actually a 5 in one. It could fly. Unfortunately, it could not maneuver that well because a tree got in its way and busted it all to hell!!

    Thanks for the low rate, The only info that was related to your problem was it was making a noise. How much help could I give. If you are not serious about getting help, DONT POST. I doubt you will get another response from anyone.
