    I tried to change the setting on climate control drawer and made fan to start. I heard the noise every time it started and yes it felt like something was touching the fan. I will check out the assembly as you mentioned.

    thanks a lot,
    Sudesh

    I have the same problem with the fan in the top of the unit behind the compressor. When it turns on, it sounds as if something is touching it which causes a knocking sound. But by looking at it nothing is hitting the fan. Do I need to replace the fan? If so, how?

    I called GE for same issue of noise from compressor compartment. It was nothing but a pipe was touching the compressor. This is drain pine behind compressor coming from ice dispenser. just reach incise and try to move it. It was a child's play.

IS THE NOISE SOMETHING HITTING THE FAN BLADE?
CHECK THE FAN ASSEMBLY BY REMOVING THE BACK PANEL IN THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT.

NORMAL NOISES IN THE UNIT ARE A GURGLING NOISE OR THE SOUND OF RUNNING WATER OR HISSING. THIS IS DUE TO THE FREON BEING PUSHED THROUGH THE SYSTEM AS THE COMPRESSOR RUNS. POPPING OR SNAPPING CAN OCCUR WHEN THE COILS IN THE FREEZER MOVE DUE TO A CHANGE OF TEMPERATURE.

My GE climate control drawer always has water in the pan . I wipe it out and when I return there is always water on the bottom.


Hi,

Which model do you have? Its easier to tell you when I can get the information of the unit. I can guess, obstructed drain to the evaporator in the fresh food section, or a leaking water tank, but not sure as all units are not built the same. Thanks

Usually you will get a sort of whinning/screeching noise from the fans inside the fridge/frezzer when they are not working properly but you can also get that howling noise from the fan which cools the compressor for the fridge/frezzer which is usually found underneath the Unit. All you have to do is find exactly where the noise is coming from and remember unless you have a dog that likes to lock itself in the fridge for a joke then most noises that come from fridge/frezzers are only made from the moving mechanical parts and sometimes leaking refridgerants but not often.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.
