Fridge not going into defrost. That could be due to defrost timer in the fridge compartment next to thermostat, or the defrost thermostat in the freezer on the evap. Looks like a button on the cooling coils.

yeah if the fan does not work when you press the light switch thats the cause for the temperature proble, because the low temperature is not circulating stays just in one palce and yes you can replace just the fan get the manual from GE to see how to do it

SOURCE: Frigidaire Frig side by side making a loud buzzing noise

it sounds like the compressor, or something near it. it is generally the only moving part in a refrigerator other than the door, so would be my first guess. If it is constantly running, but staying cool in the freezer there may be a small leak somewhere or the compressor is losing power, and pumping slower.

The accumulation of ice on one side indicates a refrigerant problem. Basically there is a refrigerant leak and some of the refrigerant has been lost.
A technician can repair the leak and re gas the refrigerant for you.

Loud "clattering" noise from freezer area when refrigerator runs


There is a fan in the back of the freezer that runs when the compressor is running. It sounds like you have ice build up around the fan.
You could have one of these problems: (Sorted by most likely to least likely)
1) Auto Defrost timer, defrost bi-metal or defrost heater is defective - the unit will go into auto defrost about twice a day, if this fails you will have lots of ice built up around the cooling fins and sometimes on the fan. Pull the back off the inside of the freezer and check for ice build up around the cooling fins, there should be none or very little if its running normal.

2) Bad door gasket - if the freezer door is leaking warm moist air inside the freezer it could be condensing around the fan causing ice (you will also see ice build up on things inside your freezer too).

3) Plugged drain - the drain leads from the freezer down to the drain pain under the fridge. If this is plugged ice will build up on the bottom of the freezer and potentially around the fan.

Freezer motor is very loud at times (up & down)


Sounds like Ice is building up and the fan blads are clicking on them. May not be something you can easally fix. Check the defrost system is working so the ice isn't building up and if that is working then you may need a control board that controls the defrost. Also when the fan isn't noisy ...make sure its actually running.. Could be a bad fan motor.
Good luck,

Loud humming noise coming from freezer


I believe what is happening, is your Evap fan has some build-up of ice on it. The reason it stops when you open the door, is the Evap fan cuts off. The Evap fan starts back up when the door is closed. What you'll need to do, is open the freezer door, and remove the back panel of the freezer. This takes some 1/4 inch screws and a couple Phillips I believe. Once you get the panel off you'll be able to see if there is any ice build-up on the Evap fan. If need, be take a hair-dryer on medium or low, and melt the ice off of it. This should solve your problem.

The freezer motor starts whenever I close the freezer door. It is loud and sounds like something is hitting a fan.


The evaporator fan motor inside your fridge is constantly trying to keep the temperature you have set it to. when the fan is on it circulates the cold air from your freezer in to your fridge. if you hear a banging noise it is cause by the fan hitting a build up of ice. this can be caused by a clogged drain pan or tube, not allowing water build up to be drained, or you could also have a defrost heater issue in which case you would have a large build up of ice near your fan. you can access the fan motor by removing the two panels at the back of the freezer, once removed you will be able to see whether or not there is a ice build up.hope this helps you
Thanks.

The refrigerator runs very very loud


The problem with that would possonly be the fan bearing is gone and gets load after a few min running or you have a ice build up and it is hitting the fan.To cheak on this you would have to remove the screws from the rear wall in the freezer compartmant and cheak.If there is ice build up you may need to order a defrost timer .If not you need a new freezer fan motor.hope this fixya:)

GE SIDE BY SIDE/MODEL #GSS25JMDCC


I also had a loud fan and it was caused by ice build-up on the fan in the back of the freezer. From inside the freezer, I removed the plastic grill that covers the fan (I think I also had to remove the side rails and ice maker) then just let the fan defrost in the sink. Made sure it was nice and dry before putting it back in or else ice would just form again. I also took a sheet of plastic and put it between the ice maker and fan grill to stop water from dripping onto the fan and haven't had a noisy fan since. I just need to remove the ice build-up from on top of the plastic sheet every now and then, but that's much easy than taking everything apart to get to the fan.

Loud Buzzing noise


Sounds like the fan is hitting some ice build-up. If you can access the area of the fan motor you can try a hair dryer to defrost the ice out of it.
