Try to find out if the noise is inside or outside (under the bottom). If the noise is Inside, that will be the main cooling fan. Could be from hitting ice or a wire, or age meaning it needs replacing. If hitting ice or a wire will need to be cleared by accessing the evaporator section in the freezer. If under the fridge. pull it away from the wall and remove the back cover (screws) use a vacuum if needed an clean the fan blades, (unplug it first). It may still be due to the age, in which case will need to be replaced.

How do I fix ice maker? Reset did not work. Can hear whirring noise but no ice is dropping.


And could you tell me a little bit about your refrigerator like a model number that's found inside? Can you feel down in the ice maker slots and see if there's ice still in there? Are you sure that whirring noise is coming from the ice maker is it trying to move in and vibrating? Be glad to help you if you answer my questions

Dryer makes loud whirring noise when try turn on, won't start


I am guessing that it does not do anything after it makes the noise?. If you hear something running after the whirring noise, but the drum is not turning it is possible the belt has broken or slipped off the motor pully. If you hear no noise after the first startup and it completely stops making any sounds then it may be a motor problem. I am no pro, just a do it yourselfer. www.repairclinic.com can help ya more than me. Just have the model number ready when you go there and look at the symptoms. Hope this helps.

Louder whirring noise when turning on computer


trumpjd,
Usually on startup the fans work a little harder then slow down. On newer computers they still have noticable fan noise. Most of what ou hear while the machine is running after start up is the power supply fan. When it starts to go bad you'll hear it all the time.

GE SidexSide PSS26SGPASS Makes Humming Noise


GE refrigs have a variable speed evaporator fan motor that is controlled by a computer board on the back of the refrig. now the noise you are hearing is most likely the fan motor ramping up and down in speed (some of my customers say it sounds like a ghost). if its a continuous ramping up and down then the speed cotroller on the board is bad and must be replaced. if its just an occasional sound then thats normal and nothing to worry over.

Btw the reason the noise stops when the door opens is because the fan shuts off when you open the door.
