GE model GSS22SGRBSS freeser fan slows down


Same problem and think this unit is a piece of JUNK. In 5 years of service i have had to replace the Water shut off Valve twice, and the heater located on the bottom of the freezer which helps to keep the freezer defrosted. The fan has a whistling sound constantly, within 2 days of putting something in the freezer it is full of ice. Sorry pal, but as I said this model is a piece of junk.

Sounds like heavy breathing


The # 5 thermistor , pt # WR55X10025, located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off , and is associated with the fan speed . The " breathing " sounds like the fan speeding up and slowing down . Replaceing this thermistor , should fix the problem .

Freezer fan in my GE side by side refrigerator surges and whistle


With you model and brand I would want to check the voltage on the fan and shaft play. Meaning the fan may be going bad or the voltage being altered at the motherboard. I do know your model with the control board that it has if a fan becomes defective the board is also affected. If the fan goes bad and replaced it is very possible that the board will fail and cause the new fan to fail. If you need help with diagnostics please let me know, Thanks, Sea breeze

Whisling noise coming out of inside the refrigerator. Louder when freezer door is open. maybe ice maker area?


The whistling is caused by the air circulating fan located just behind the light. It is easily accessed by removing the light cover and the two small hex screws above the light. To stop the whistling I simply turned the freezer off and pulled the fan cover out slightly to reveal the fan blades. I then pushed the blades down, toward the bottom of the until the blades stopped and i could feel the shaft slightly protruding from the top of the blades. Repositioning the blade has stopped the incessant whistling. Hope this helps!

In our 22 cu ft GE SxS fridge /freezer, the freezer fan speeds up and slows down frequently and creates a whoooing sound like a quiet hoot owl when reaching the peak speed of the speed up phase of the ebb...


I have had some of these units making noises like this. One I found was leaking water down from the water inlet tube and in behind the ice maker and behind another panel that shoots up to the ice maker and building up behind that panel and causing a whistling sound. Removing the ice build up solved this one problem but couldn't find solution to the problem for the other. Dismissed it to change in the weather and expanding and contracting of the liner of the unit. Hope this helps.

Freezer fan surges up and down


Don't worry, that is a variable speed DC fan motor. Fan speed is regulated by the mother board as needed.

Fridge is whistling


Mine was making a moaning, whistling noise coming from just above the ice maker. It happened when the fan speed changed. I learned on this site that the motherboard was probably defective.
Rather than go thru GE, we found a new one online for 66 bucks. I replaced it in about ten minutes and it's all fixed. Poor materials on the original, but this site was very helpful.

Ge profile artica refer fan speed PSS29NHPBWW


hmmmm no thats peculiar it will slow down and start back each time the doors are open also fan will turn on even if fridge is turned off if a door is opened londer than 3 mins. If the fan still operates irradicly even in the liner protect mode (turn refrig off open door for 3 mins, fan turns on) then the main board is faulty not uncommon for these refrigs.
