Pull it out again and with it running (making noise) look at the fan to see if the fan blade is hitting the bracket.

Take off the bottom back panel of the fridge,there's a condenser fan in there,something could have jammed into it when you cleaned and the fan motor is humming because it can't spin,check this right away,this is what cools down the compressor if it's the problem

    if the fan motor is bad you can leave the bottom panel off and put a regular window fan behind the fridge and blow it onto the compressor,it will keep it cool,you won't loose any food and keep it like that until you get the new motor to replace the damaged fan motor

My Hotpoint makes a high pitched humming noise all the time.


Hi,

This noise is most likely coming from the evaporator fan motor that is located behind the panel just below the ice maker. There is an air duct that the fan blows through to cool the ice maker that is why the sound is heard in the ice maker area more.

The noise does not hurt anything but the motor can be replaced if it gets too annoying, it is a fairly common complaint. The part number for the motor is WR60X10185 and runs about $60.00. It is a bit challenging to get to but can be done with a bit of patience by removing everything in the freezer and taking the back panel off the inside of the freezer.

Refrigerator is making a rather loud humming noise. It is still working fine, just noisey.Is this a problem? By the way, its only two years old. It is a GE model #GSH25JJTA SS


pull the unit away from the wall and see if the motor is gummed up with dust. motor is behind unit on the bottom. if it is, clean it off with a tolit brush. if its clean and still humming thats your motor making the noise. call a repair man.

Loud humming noise


Stick you hand in the freezer, touch the back wall of freezer, see if you feel a strong or lite vibration equal to the hum you are hearing. If so, the you have a bad evap fan, if not then pull unit out from wall and see if hum is load toward the bottom rear portion of the frig, if so contact a repair tech.

A side by side GE refrigerator with a loud hum


Hello Kchoffman73,

It sems we developed the same problem.
The hum seems to be coming from the bottom rear of the
fridge.

we have a GE side-by-side model TFX25JR.
The fridge is about 12 years old.

Whats the status of your fridge ? Did it ever stop
humming ? Did you replace or repair it ?
Does it still work ?

Thanks

Loud buzzing/Humming noise.


I have a Amana ASD2622HRW Lately there is a loud buzz that comes and goes. We cleaned everything and blew it out under and behind the fridge. And it still is happening. Any suggestions? It still cools fine. But this Buzz is so loud that you can hear it through the house. Please help!

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Thanks,
Bill

LOUD HUMMING NOISE


Here's my thoughts:

Make sure it is level.

Could be some things inside the fridge vibrating against each other.

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.
