It is going bad and needs to be replaced. Here's a diagram and parts list of your model. Part 650 is the fan motor. http://www.partselect.com/ModelFrames.aspx?ModelID=360117&ModelNum=HTS18GBMARCC&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=2&Selected=00107990i07&Position=7&mfg=GE&Type=&Mark=7

if you can access the blade on this fan carefully touch the rotating blade and see if it is difficult to stop the blades,if it stops relatively easy then the motor is going bad

Noises in freezer area of refrigerator


Some refrigerators have a small plastic fan under the bottom shelf of the freezer that circulates air. It's not too unusual for a heavily loaded shelf to rub the fan blades making the noise you describe. If you empty the freezer, you'll fin a few screws holding the bottom shelf in. remove the shelf and inspect the fan and surrounding parts for signs of rubbing. Also tug on the fan blade lightly to see if it is still attached to the motor's shaft securely. New fan blades can be purchased at a good appliance repair shop. Good Luck

Freezer is cooling, but refrigator is not cooling


take a look at your evaporator fan motor in the freezer to make sure it is running and not built up with ice around it. this fan motor pushes the cold air from the freezer into the fridge to cool the fridge. you say the freezer is "cooling" , is it freezing??

Bottom cools and top cools but dose not freeze . Do not heart fan when frezzer is opened.


you do not hear the fan ? your evaporator fan is not working - shut off everything and remove freezer panel look for any excess ice or frust blocking the fan - if everything is clear try spinning the fan blades with your hands, is there any resistence or it spins freely ? Put back cover and turn it on - if fan fails to spin then you have to get it serviced and change the evap fan motor assembly or check the control board.
your unit won't cool if the fan is not working or working erratically.

Please don't rate this solution because people generally don't rate well when it's bad news, even though the response is correct. When the DC evap. motor goes out, it can take out the motherboard. (located behind the small panel on back of the refrig.)

Freezer fan stopped working


Sounds like you need a new fan motor. First make sure the fan blade turns freely and see if you can move the shaft side to side, or up and down. If you can feel any movement in the fan shaft the bearings of the motor are bad. It is possible for some ice to have the fan blade frozen causing the motor to stall. Some models also have a fan light switch install at a point near the hinge side of the door.

My 16-year old refrig makes a single knocking noise when it starts to cool. It sometimes makes that noise if it's just sitting there. Just replaced the fan assembly behind the freezer wall. It wasn't...


Just a thought..fan motors usually have some front to back play (looseness). When the fan first turns on ..it may make contact with something, however after a few blade revolutions, the air pressure will push the fan one way, and allow it to be quieter. If not the fan, the compressor will also have some starting torque possibly causing a knock.
