Good day,
It is not uncommon for the evaporator fan motor to become noisy. It's accessed by removing the rear panel in the freezer section. Replacing it is not difficult. Just ordinary hand tools will do.
The motor should be available at any decent sized appliance parts house.
Take your model number with you if you don't take the motor itself, and it is wise to replace the blade at the same time.

I bought a used whirlpool eed 251mm and it started making weird noises from the freezer section like a fan but it's really loud and horrible sounding what could this be?

Sounds like the fan is hitting something . Did this happen when you first plugged it in or after a week or so? Alo is there frost on the back wall of the freezer?

Hi - hearing a fan whirling sound when either of the upper doors are closed. Freezer is still freezing but warm up top. Pressing the close button instead of closing the door produces the same fan sound.

Make sure the lights are going off in the freshfood section. If lights staying on remove bulbs immediately and order new control board located on back of unit.

It sounds asthmatic when the motor is on.It can be quite loud and annoying. We do not have the owners manual.

Good day,
Lots of motors.
Evaporator fan motor in freezer compartment.
Condenser fan motor in the bottom rear of the machine next to the compressor.
Lastly, the compressor itself.
The first 2 can be replaced easily.
The compressor no. If you've determined it's the compressor, then unless the machine is under 5 years of age and under warranty, then it is unlikely it would be cost effective.

Some GE machines, from some time ago, made very weird sounds when running, but on contacting GE, they claimed that was the sounds a refrigerator makes when making cold.
I didn't agree but .........

Very loud noise whirling sound

Can you tell me where the sound is coming from? Like inside freezer or under refrigerator. Most sounds like you describe come from a fan motor and the fan blades are hitting something. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refrigerator makes loud noise every once in a while

I m not to good at hearing up close these days. I need a description of the sound and where its coming form high, low, back front, top back?

1 thing refrigerators can do is gurgle when they shut off and this is normal.
Another is the inside fan (evaporator fan) can be whirling and the bearings going out and it will make all kinds of racket. Open the freezer then the refrigerator door next time and see if its louder in 1 place than the other. Does it make this noise when it stops? A compressor has internal mounting springs and this can cause a knock or heavy thud when it cuts off sometimes but it can still work for a long time.
