Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a 6yrs old PSS26SGPASS GE side-by-side refrigerator that works perfectly, except for the last week or so, it started to make a constant whining noise that goes crescendo (increasingly) to a higher pitch and it stops for a fraction of a second and restarts the whining cycle. I have the digital setting showing 0 degrees in the freezer side and 37 degrees on the fridge side; the ice-maker works fine. I am really puzzled: I bought a 5 yrs warranty - has expired - should I be worried, would be justified to call a technician? Everything works fine, except the noise is bugging us.

I would not call a Technician out because it will cost you too much money that you can put aside for a good refrigerator that does not have all of the electronic gadgets that keep it running GE runs behind LG with their great looks. But they both have costly failures when it come to quality electronic controls. I really hate to be honest. Wait that is what you want right? The truth is you can buy a better quality refrigerator by purchasing one that has no electronic control boards. Simple defrost timers will last 3 times longer and the pain of paying a technician to come switch your motherboard out and leave in 15 minutes with $500.00 dollars is just too much guilt for me to carry to lie
to you, Good Luck, Sea Breeze

your best bet is to install a drain heater. This heater is wired off the evaporater fan, it runs constantly so that the ice melting off the evap. coils stays melted instead of re-freezing when it touches the drain tray. You may or may not be able to do this yourself. Do you have any technical experience?

Ge after replace fan still fan not working


Something to check for. Is the top of the refrigerator door lower than the freezer door? If so the ref. light may not be turning off all the time. Pull bottom panel off to expose hinges. The ref hinge should have an adjuster. Adjust door up to be level with freezer.
