Question about GE Refrigerators

GE refrig model PSH23SGPABS

My Refrig has starting making a loud noise from the fan in the freezer just below the ice maker. The temp of the freezer has risen from 0 to 15 and refrig has risen fron 37 to 45 in the past hour or so. When I open the freezer door the fan shuts off and when I close the door the fan goes on. The noise start very low volume a couple of days ago but today the noise is much louder. The unit is 4 years old. If I lightly pull on the panel on the back wall where the vent hold are located above the light the fan getters quiter. I believe the fan has shifted behinf the panel? The ice maker works. Any ideas?

Thanks

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

The ice maker in my Whirlpool Gold refrigerator has stopped making ice. There is ice in the tray, but it won't empty itself.


If the " tray " you are refering to , is the ice maker mold , then clean the coils in the front , under the refrig ( condensor coils ) . Also check the fan behind the refrig , to make sure it is working . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees to cycle . Bothe the coils and the fan , have to be checked to be sure the freezer is at the correct temp for the ice maker to opperate properly . If both are ok , then replace the ice maker .

GSH25JFRFWW evaporator fan makes loud deep noise at times


GE refrigerators have a faulty design, and so don't defrost completely, so ice builds up in the evaporator coils and on and in the evap. fan motor. Melting the ice will make the fridge more efficient, and the fan quiet again.

The slow, easy way to fix is take out all the food, unplug the fridge, leave doors open all day. Ice will melt, and all will be fine ... for a few months, until the ice builds up again. The fast way is here.

Roaring sound


I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not sufficient to move enough air through the coils located behind a plastic panel in the freezer compartment. The part numbers for my fans are 1. Ice Maker 4681JB1029E and Refrig/Freezer 4681JK1004E. It is not impossible, but fairly difficult to replace them yourself. You have to remove the large slide out freezer drawer and glides. Then work the back freezer panel loose from the bottom. Be careful not to break it. It is plastic.
Routine maintenance: Pull the refrig out from the wall and blow-out the coils and fan located on the lower right rear. You might find it easier to do this by removing the cover on the lower, back of the refrig.

I have a Kenmore model 795 77563600 refrig side


This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.

U-Line icemaker is undependable


to make ice the thermo in the ice maker must be below 5 F...make sure there is a clear flow between the evaporator and the ice make also make sure you have a good seal between the freezer and the refrig areas..

1) put a cup of water in the refrig.
2)start with the coolest setting and move 1 setting every 24 hrs.
until it up until it freezing the water.
3) coolest you can get but not freezing the refrig...
hope is help

GE GSS20IE Ice Maker


Even though the fridge was given to you it still has a 1 yr warranty from manufacture date.  Look on the sticker inside the fridge and see if it gives the manufacture date or get the receipt from you gave it to you.  Call 1-800-905-9505 for service.  They are nationwide (US).  If you find out it is older than 1 yr then use the model # on that sticker and go to www3.sears.com to get the correct part # for the icemaker.  Unfortunately these come as a whole unit and can't replace parts.  Once you have the correct part # I bet will find a good price on ebay for a new ice maker.  If you need help finding the part # or any other questions let me know.  If you feel I didn't help solve your problem please let me know before you rate this solution.

Yes your refrig is not defrosting automatically. You can start by removing the shelves in the freezer than removing the rear panel (the panel that is frosted half way). Use hair dryer to defrost ice from coil. This will restore your refrig temporarily. Your refrig has a pretty advance defrost system and is not easy to test. If you have a meter (volt-ohmmeter) i can help with diagnosis.
