Hello,


Sounds like you have a bad door switch. Depending on the age of the fridge, it might still be under warranty. If it's not, then you might be able to access the door switch yourself and pull it out & replace it.
This is common. Unplug it or turn off the circuit breaker for a full 5 minutes. Then plug-in and follow instructions. Things will be good

Good luck......

Why is my refrigeror freezer making a chirping sound?


Check your manual that came with the refrig. Many 'fridges now will make a soft sound, sometimes even a "moan", when the automatic de-icer starts working. Usually it's normal. HOWEVER, if you hear a real loud, shrill, or weird sound of some kind that is different.

GE Side by Side Refrig - loud noise behind the ice maker section Model PSS25SGMB BS


it sounds like the evaporator fan blade is hitting some ice that has built up around the blades i have seen this happen a lot on g.e. SxS lately,if you can remove the ice maker and dispenser you can see the fan blade,if you dont want to do this then shut down the refrigerator and leave freezer door open and heat it carefully with a hairdrier to speed the process up to melt this ice then restart it and the noise should be gone

Our LG bottom freezer refridgerator is 2 years old. It is making a whirring noise that stops when the door is opened. It can get pretty loud at times.


The whirring sound is the fan that blows cold air into the refrigerator. It is supposed to stop when the door is opened. If it is making a loud noise there may be ice built up in the fan housing. Turning the power to the refrigerator off for a 2-4 hours may allow any ice in the fan to melt. If you do not open the freezer during that time the frozen food will not defrost.If the noise continues, you may have to take the fan apart to make sure it is not frozen. It is probably located behind the back inside panel of the freezer.

Ice maker stopped making ice. Now water continuously drips.


Replace the water valve behind refrig , where the wall water line connects to on refrig .

AMANA ARB2257C ice maker makes noise/doesn't eject cubes into bin


Hi: First off make sure the fridge is level. Is It too high in front? Making the rear of the icemaker overflow and jam? Also make sure the freezer section is a zero degrees, not just frozen. Ice cream should be rock hard. I hope this helps you avoid calling service. Thank You, Jeff

Loud Buzzing Noise from Behind Freezer


Sounds like the freezer fan blade is hitting on a build up of ice or frost. You may have a defrost issue, or it may be a one time thing, like the door was open for a long time (object holding door partially open) or also check the ice dispenser duct door to make sure it is closing. Sometimes a chunk of ice hangs up in the ice shoot, allowing moist air to enter freezer, resulting in the extra frost / ice near the freezer fan. You might also check the door gaskets, especially the bottom side where sugary liquid spills might cause a gasket to tear. #2: Long run times: If cooling is good, don't worry. Older refrig's often ran less time, but used much more electricity than the newer refrig's, even though new one run longer. (Like having a 40 watt light bulb on for 20 hours a day uses less electricity than having a 100 watt bulb on for 10 hours a day)

My freezer is buzzing- loudly!


Sounds like ice buildup around the fan that's inside the freezer.  My lousy GE 3-door did that when the bottom freezer didn't get completely closed overnight, and everything behind the back panel, where the coils are froze up like an iceberg.  I had to take the back panel off and melt it with a hair dryer. 

See if you see any abnormal ice buildup, or if the refrig compartment is getting warm.  That's usually a result of ice buildup.   Another cause is a failure in the defrost cycle.  It will freeze up after a couple days. This would usually be the defrost timer.
