Freezer buzzing


What you need to do is either tightn the screws on the fan motor or add some washers to the cover to tighten it up. There could be a small crack in the plastic that could be vibrating too. If the noise drives you nuts you can order a replacement cover from the manufacturer. Good luck

Hotpoint makes a whining grinding sound and it's new


could be above or like with my newish Hotpoint (now out of warranty) ice stuck at top of fan unit in freezer section which is then vibrating (sounds like broken gears or worn out bushes)as it keeps bouncing off the fan blades. I simply remove the plastic panel and fan unit mounted into this and then tip plastic cover up and ice falls out of top opening above the fan, after replacing it is then dead quiet and has happened twice now 1st time engineer did this and i watched him so now know what to do to fix it. It's really a design fault as they should have put a mesh grill above fan to stop falling ice then getting trapped and hitting against the fan.

GE Refrigerator GSS201EPWW is making a loud noise


This is the fan motor making noise but the fan motor is probably ok. The main board supplies voltage to the motor and can cause it to make strange noises.

Kenmore Coldspot freezer is buzzing loudly


See if pressing on the back panal makes a difference and see if anything is putting pressure on the panel. If its vibration it is trial and error to get it positioned to quiet it down. If it is the bearing replacement is the cure.

Freezer fan noise


Remove the freezer panel to access the fan motor. Look for any obstruction around the fan or blade. Ice, misplaced wire etc.
Check the fan blade. Sometimes they slip down the shaft too far.
If you find none of these issues, replace the fan motor.

GE Profile Refrigerator (Model #20) w/freezer on the bottom


If the problem disappears (for a while) when the freezer reaches 32F, then I know what the problem is.

The GE Profile refrigerators (and likely other models as well) often don't defrost properly, especially in humid climates. So they can develop ice buildup internally, especially if the air vents at the back of the freezer are blocked by frozen food. Once that happens, that ice can interfere with the cold air circulation booster fan that runs when the freezer temperature is too warm. Then you get a LOUD buzzing noise from the fan blades, as they bang into the ice.

The immediate "solution" is to be sure nothing blocks the air vents, and then to melt the ice that interferes with the fan. You can turn the fridge off for a while (with the food removed so it doesn't spoil), and/or get a hair dryer and heat the inside back of the freezer, until the ice melts and falls away from the fan. (Just be careful not to block the nozzle of the hair dryer, or it may burn out from overheating!)

But the ultimate solution is to buy another refrigerator, one that is NOT a GE! And that makes me sad, because GE used to make GREAT refrigerators. My last GE refrigerator is nearly 20 years old, and still works well, and it does so QUIETLY.

Freezer moans


Got a tape recorder or video camera?  Tape it and then call the service guy.  Then if it's "not" acting up when he gets there you can show him!  I did that once...it works.
