Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer hums and whirls as though the motor is engaging and then disenganging

I just recently noticed that our GE Profile Side-By-Side is making a whirling/ humming sounds as though the motor is engaging and then disengaging. When I open the freezer door you really hear it, but it is noticable even when the door is closed. Its not the normal kicking on and off cycling to keep the refrigerator/ freezer cool.

Any ideas what it could be or if there's anything I can do other than contact an appliance repair person? I would at least like to narrow down or locate the problem.

We are having the same problem at the moment. I have heard that it is something to do with the control panel. Maybe you should contact your fridges manufacturer and ask about it. I may be incorrect here because I am not too sure myself. It may be something to do with the twin cooling. I would phone up your manufacturer if I was you. we havent phoned anyone yet. However, our fridge is a SAMSUNG. I do hope this helped!

The compressor motor on our GE Profile side by side has been making a loud banging sound when it shuts off. Now, it doesn't shut off at all. I notice some ice formed in the back of the freezer.


two seperate issues,the springs within the compressor housing that support the piston have broken,can only be resolved by replacing compressor....in regards to the ice build up,you have a defrost problem.defrost issues can usually be resolved for about 120-160.00 through a qualified servicer

Layer of frost on the bottom surface of ice maker


during periods of high humidity and or high use, it is not unusual to notice frost on surfaces in the freezer. the ICM is susceptible due to it being metal and having warm(compared to freezer temp) water in it. make sure the doors ar closed tight and nothing is stuck in the gasket area.
