    I have a GE Profile side by side refrigerator and it makes an annoying humming noise.  When I open the refrigerator door, it stops.  I think it is related to getting stuck in the express thaw function.  I will cycle through the express thaw settings to turn it off.  When I open the door, the 3.0 light is on and it constantly hums when the door is closed.  Can anyone help me solve this problem?  This refrigerator has been a big disappointment.

Fan is supposed to stop when the door is opened . Noise from the fan could be a bearing problem if it is a high pitched squeal. If this is the condition you have , replacing the evaporator fan should correct the problem. If the fan is sounding like a buz-saw the fan blade could be pushed in to far on its shaft, or it could be hitting an ice build-up in the blade turning area.

Thank you Mr. Guru. I follow your solution and the problem is fixed.
I removed everything inside the freezer and refrigiratoor then turn off the refrigirator for over 24 hrs. I believed all the ice which build up in the fan is completely melted. The fan run smooth now.

Call out the warranty supplier. Where is the noise coming from? If no warranty, check the electrics to the compressor and fan. sometimes the noise is the fan. Also switch off overnight and leave doors open. When restarting, if the noise has gone it will have been the internal fan hitting on ice buildup.

Freezer fan is noisey and can t find serial number

The number you will need is the model number. On side by side models there are a few places to look. 1- inside fridge on right or left wall. 2- Open fridge door and look up near the top front lip. 3- Open both doors and look on body of fridge under the doors. 4- Fridge door sometimes there is a sticker right when you open. Mostly you are looking for a silver sticker or silver plate. It gives you a model number and serial number. If you need further assistance please mail me back.

I have an AEG competence 5020 B fan oven (single) which has a very noisey fan, does this need a new motor and can I fix this myself?

Remove the oven, open the back, remove the fan, and clean with WD40, afer the fan is dry, fit the fan back into the housing, replace back and put into cabinet, switch on low, if the fan makes a whirring noise, or unusual squeeking replace the fan, if however the fan sounds normal and good pressure when door is open, it should be okay. If you require a part go to
Hope this is helpful
