    I have the same problem - it's coming from the freezer side. If I turn the freezer off, the howling stops. Anyone have any idea how to fix?

GE model GSS22JERF BB keep hearing loud howling noise coming from the freezer size. Don't know the cause


Uh-huh... Ivy Joseph,

Well ...
unless your cat is missing that characterization is going to need some EXPANSION... clarification... definition.
..
The door is open/closed has no impact on "howling"...??

The unit is OTHERWISE WORKING... (????)
or some issues have accumulated to attract your attention.

Your diagram shows a pretty standard side x side configuration...

a "WORKING" refrigerator won't be howling. An iced up refrigerator can encase the EVAPORATOR FAN... and the howling will be that fan shaft spinning in a FROZEN FAN.

The noise should stop on OPENING the door...

Iced up... can come from several sources
- huge air intrusion
- Defrost circuit failure

Go to the location below to get an idea of how our machine fits together...

The part depicted is the second LEAST LIKELY
failure point (defrost thermostat)... First least likely
is the defrost heater element...

Most likely... DEFROST TIMER (or PCB)

Hope this helps... comment me back with progress questions (I'm usually here daily)

I have a GE model GSL22JFPH BS refridgerater and


Then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . There is a heater for the water dispensor tube , pt # WR49X10173 , which should keep this from happening again .

My fridge is howling pretty loudly when ever it runs , the howling is coming from behind the ice maker turned the ic e maker off but unit st ill howls what s wrong


Hi, It sounds like the evaporator fan motor is going bad or there is frost building up and hitting the fan blade.
Unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear panel inside the freezer and locate the fan.
You can plug the refrigerator in and see if the fan is making the noise.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Howling noise


I don't see anything located directly behind the icemaker on this model. Try to better isolate the location of noise if you can. If the icemaker is at fault, I wouldn't bother trying to repair. Order another one. One other thing to check is the water flow. When the noise happens again, stick your finger in the ice mold and feel for water. If it just filled, then problem may be in the water valve. Hope this helps,

My GE side by side refridgerator makes a "howling" sound. Any ideas?


the problem you are having is in the main control board. ge has had a problem with this part causing the fan motor to go into high and low speed which causes the howling noise. unfortunately it is a costly fix, around $125 for the part. if you are savy to changing this part it is a matter of unplgging about 5 connections and replugging them. the new board has an extra set of pin that nothing connects to. READ the instuctions and it is a simple fix, saving about $50-60 in labor costs.
