Hi

The noise comes from the lower damper control behind the chill unit. Damper door makes noise when it opens. You need to replace that damper assembly,damper.

Let us know if you want to know something else accept the suggestion.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

GE side by side refrigerator-freezer daily makes loud grrrrrnng noise. Sporadic. Comes from area just above ice maker. Makes no difference if I turn ice maker off. Any ideas what is causing this?


Many ice maker sporadically turn to keep ice from freezing together and becoming a solid block of ice. This would occur even if the ice maker is turned off in order to keep the ice already made from freezing. It is generally short and not that loud. I'm surprised you find it disturbing.

The GE side by side is roughly 10 years old and when the turbo cool bin is on it makes a rattle noise every 5 mins. like a toy gun sound. I turn it off and it stops. It only happens when the bottom bin...


It's freezer fan hitting with your bin drawer when it's over ice formed behind the freezer. It's due to malfunction of defrosting. Keep 5 degree thermostat setting. And check thermostat by turning counter clock wise. If shuts off the fridge, it's working. If not replace thermostat. Check defrost timer set in proper setting. Once defrost cycle is good, no banging sound will be there. Thanks.

My hotpoint aquarius tumble drier is making a very lound griding sound as it turns. What can it be and can it be repaired by myself? the drier is over 8years old is it time for a new one?


This is the plastic "wheel" on the motor that drags the drive belt to spin the dryer. you will need to push back into place with something thin. under the right hand side of the dryer there will be a grill under the motor. look for a black plastic "wheel" and move it away from the casing with something that can fit through the grill.

Our GE Profile side by side refrigerator is making hollow ice cubes and the water dispenser comes on by itself sporadically for about 3 seconds a few times a day. Over night it filled a whole glass of...


Hello. Hollow cubes is caused when there is not enough water going into the ice cube molds. That said, since you have too much water going into the water dispenser I would suspect that the valve needs to be cleaned or possibly replaced. Joe

Is the vent on the side of the crisper suppose to blow out cool air?I have a whirpool side by side..8years old


No, that vent is for the return air going back to the freezer. The vent at the top is where the freezer fan blows air into the fridge.

Sounds like an internal mounting spring for the compressor. Only solution is replacing the compressor. However the compressor can run in this condition for years. Replacement compressors only have a one year warranty. A new refrigerator comes with a five year warranty.

also ensure the condensor uder the fridge is clean of dust build up. high head preasure at the compresor discharge can also cause noises in the eveperator circulation. make shure you clear out this dust 4 times a year.
