We have a GE Profile (model: pss26sgrss) that was making a loud, humming noise. Sound was coming from the freezer compartment. A couple other observations: ice dispenser is not dispensing ice (constantly have to switch between crush and cube) and some ice is coming out in blocks (melting?). Anyway, I accidentally (temporarily?) fixed the noise problem. It appears the ice box was pushing into the freezer's plastic backwall. If I pushed into the wall it would make a loud noise and pulling it back would alleviate the noise. I guess the wall or some other part was being pushed into the fan. The more I pushed the louder it would get.

    Need to edit my comment. I indicated that the ice dispenser is not dispensing. I meant to write that "it is not dispensing _adequately_" because we are able to get ice but it seems to require a lot of work.

So my GE fridge is making a terrible howling noise and I'm trying to figure out where to tape to get it to stop like you did


Justin, when does it make the noise? when the compressor comes on, when the freezer fan comes on? sometimes taping is just a short term solution.. can you push on one side or the other to change or stop the noise??

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.

Howling sound from freezer fan section


it is most likely the fan bushings that are making the noise. you can try to lube them with a light oil if you want to buy some time. but the fan motor will need to be replaced soon.

Fridge makes loud moaning sound


It is the control board. There is a recall on certain models and serial #'s that will cover the parts, but not all are covered. do a google search for hotpoint or GE howling noise. you will find out all the info you need.
