Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
My Samsung fridge is not yet a year old. It has started this loud humming noise while it is running. it varies how long this noise will go on, sometimes a few minutes other times a half hour. I flip the breaker to make it stop but ultimately it starts again. This happens many times in a day. I have opened the doors to see if the noise is loud inside the fridge and it seems to be coming from behind. There is a protective cover on the back so I can't see what is going on while the noise is present. Any suggestions? GE refrigerator is about 6 years old. It has a pretty loud hum that stops when you open the door on either the fridge or the freezer side. As soon as the door closes it starts again. Suggestions?
Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

if you have ice buildup then the fridge may be low on freon.
or there is dust clogging around the pump or fan is not running.
remove the bottom or back and look around the compressor.
see that the fan is running.

My hot point freezer fan was making a variable hollowing sound as well. I talked to a repair guy and he mentioned that the bushings seem to wear out on the fan motor located under the ice maker. I ordered a new motor $82.70 and replaced it myself. Took about an hour to replace and it fixed the problem.
