The freezer makes a loud noise that lessens in time then starts up again. Sounds like its from behind the icemaker of a side by side. Now E - F is showing in the temp screens, but it seems like the refrig is still working. Whats wrong? and how much?

    Is replacing the freezer fan something I can do or do I need a profrssional?

    Repair man came, I told him what you said, turned off unit then turned it on again and it started working the it clicked off. Repair man is telling me I need a new fan, elec board and digital face. $800 He said it may have burned out the elec board. Turned off unit then after 2 hours turned it on again and it worked fine for 3 days, then after 3 days the loud humming is coming from the back of the freezer unit again and the freezer and refrigerater temp is starting to rise.. If the elec board is burned out why did it work for 3 days fine?

Noise from the freezer could be as a result of several things. The first thing to check out for would be the voltage level which is supplied by the electricity company. If the voltage is low then this could bring about the unit working in a forceful manner and therefore the cause of the noise. In this situation all you have to do is get a voltage regulator for the unit and this should stabilize the unit.
On the other hand it could be the fan at the back of the system which is not functioning properly this should also be checked.
Thirdly the compressor at the back could be faulty and be the cause of the noise but this is usually caused by the same first problem and is very unlikely.
In all the cost of fixing it should be within $50 - $100 and should not be more than.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

    The fan does not definitely need to be replaced maybe just servicing. Would be better if you got a repair man to do it. On the whole it should not cost more than $50 to get a new fan plus installation...because it might not need replacement you need a professional

    I dont think the electric board is burnt...just maybe might need some repairs but the problem is most repairmen just know how to replace parts instead of trying to fix the parts. Some part of the electric board might have burnt out. First get the repair man to replace the fan and see how it works for the next couple of days. And get back to me

Replace the air circulation fan in the freezer compartment. E-F is the code for the fan.

    First things first . Open the freezer door and listen to see if the fan is running . It is easy to hear if it is working . If it is not working , replacing it is not that hard . You remove the shelves first . Then , look at the rear of your freezer and you'll see some screws that hold the back panel in place . The fan is located close to the top of the unit , therefore , remove the screws from the top of the panel first , left side then right side then down to the next two screws and so on . The panel might be split so you might not have to remove the entire panel . Regardless , once the screws are out the panel will slide out and you'll see the two screws which mount the fan . Now , if the fan is running and not making any noise similar to a high pitch squealing sound , you might have a defroster cycle problem . And that would require a professional .

Replaced the defrost heater,defrost thermostat,worked good for about 3


If the icemaker refill solenoid does not close properly or stays open too long excess water enters freezer compartment and that will freeze over the ice making machine plus other areas of freezer. There is an adjustment on the ice maker to regulate the amount of water going in - locate the screw (behind front panel of maker) and turn counter clockwise to lessen time of fill operation). Problem is not with the GE

Water leaking behind freezer wall


I would make sure the fill tube in the freezer is in the proper place on the icemaker. there is usually a slot it will rest in or on. If it is it the right place. The water valve may not be closing in time and allowing excess water to fill into the icemaker causing it to over flow. On some icemakers there is a adjustment screw on the icemaker to increase or decrease the amount of water that fills. If not I would check the valve and replace it if nessacary.

Frigidaire side by side freezer - LOUD noise...


It sounds like the evaporator fan is hitting ice that is built up on the evaporator coil. When it's making the noise, open the freezer door and see if it stops.
(Most models are wired so that the evaporator fan cuts off when the freezer door is open.)
Check the inside back, lower panel of the freezer for ice built up or frost on it. If there is, you have a defrost problem that is most likley a bad heater. It's located around the coil inside the freezer behind the panel you will be looking at. The defrost problem would explain the freezer not freezing ice cream.

I have a Kenmore trio 795.7756 bottom freezer refer. has been making loud noise for days. Only stops when refer. doors are opened. I vaccumed in back, noise still there.


It sounds like the Freezer Fan and Icemaker Fan are going bad. They are located behind the back wall of the bottom freezer chest. These are very labor intensive to replace.

GE Profile making knocking noises at different times


I have the GE profile Refrigerator with ice maker in the refrigerator compartment. Mine was knocking loudly for long periods of time, so I finally removed the icemaker by removing the side panel in the icemaker compartment held with 1 phillips head screw, disconnecting the electrical plug (unclip), pulling the tab of the icemaker down (on top) and sliding it toward the door, thus removing it. There was ice frozen in the motor compartment that was the problem. I let it thaw out and re-installed. All was OK after that..

Try checking the evaporator fan. The blades are just pushed on and sometimes may work itself up or down and plastic fan could be rubbing.

Sears Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Loud humming noise


That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa
