You have a bad relay on the mother board. It is behind a panel on the back of the fridge. You can view a diagram at http://www3.sears.com/imaging/ImagePageJava.shtml?productTypeID=0165000&brandID=0432&modelDesc=REFRIGERATOR%20R%20SERIES&modelNumber=GSH25KGREWW&documentID=G0502132&documentTypeID=PLDM&documentClassCode=PV&titleType=SEALED%20SYSTEM%20%26%20MOTHER%20BOARD&titleID=00008& It is # 801. The part # is WR55X10552 and cost is $124.69 @ http://www3.sears.com/. I replace this board all the time. Make sure to unplug the fridge first!

its a heater cycle problem..the defroster is not working properly. its building up ice in the evaporator that touches the evaporator fan that makes that loud noise but stops when you open a door. it could be either a bad heater, a bad thermo disc or a bad timer.hope i was able to help

Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).
If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.
If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)

HI, This is the result of a damaged Power control board. This board is not regulating the incoming current correctly. This board should be replaced, immediately. This will cause the in-house circuit breaker to blow. The board is located behind a access panel, on the rear of the unit. Have it replaced, soon.
It may be mounted on the compressor platform, as well.
