"knocking" from the freezer GE Profile PFS22SBSBSS fridge

Our refrigerator had started making "knocking" sounds around October/November. It mostly happened in the evening around the same time so we thought perhaps it was a cyclical thing. Lately it's been occurring more frequently and much louder than before. The sound usually lasts for less than a minute. It literally sounds like someone is banging on a pipe inside the freezer section. Any thoughts? We've had this fridge since May 2007 so it's not very old. We've had repair men come to look at it but we're not really satisfied with their answers.

    I have a Samsung American style fridge freezer (not sure of model no. at the moment) that is making a single loud knock occasionally. It was bought in June last year.

It is only a month old and we are getting ready to call Ge and have them send their service tech out, but from past bad experience with ice makers on last two refrigerators I don't know what to expect!!!

The compressor could be a little lose from shipment from factory, to warehouse, to your home. If the bushings are lose, when the compressor kicks on, it can cause a jarring or vibration in the system lines. Disconnect the power from the wall before you attempt to touch the compressor and see if there is any play in the mounting bushings for the compressor.

How to fix knocking sound


It really depends where the sound is coming from. You will get a knocking sound when the fridge makes ice, and a knocking should when the compresser starts land stops, or your fan in the freezer may be hitting some ice build up in theevaperator

Refrigerator knocking noise


If it seems to be coming from underneath the unit it could be the compressor. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} That's usually mounts inside the compressor. Usually when the compressor cuts off. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.
Any other noise would be from a fan. One in the freezer behind the back panel and one under the unit where the compressor is.

GE Fridge Motor Super Loud


Open the freezer door and see if the sound is there or if its near the floor. This needs to be corrected soon to prevent damage to your refrigerator. Your explanation makes be think the fan inside the freezer is loose or has ice buildup around the blades or the fan blade has become unbalanced in some way...Let me know and please rate me, Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE Top Freezer Fridge - Freezer Buzzing


If you remove the half moon cap, and two 1/4" screws you can remove the cover and get to the fan. The fan motor shaft is mostly wobbling around making the buzzing sound.

GE Profile Knocking


Unplug and closely examine the area for a loose fan blade or anything that may be causing the noise. Better now than to get damage that could be prevented. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Digital display is blank in GE Profile fridge


Hi. Its either a bad motherboard or control board. I would check the control board for any obvious signs of damage to the board first. I've seen the control board go blank on the GE side by side and it turned out to be the motherboard. The motherboard is located behind a cover on the back of your refrigerator cabinet. You should have a new motherboard on hand at all times because they fail alot. Be sure to put a surge protector on your refrigerator. Good Luck, Mack
