Fan is on the "blink"... Replacing the fan should solve your problem. If it goes out all the way your food in the refrigerator section will start to go bad.

Goodluck,

Brian

    Yes it does, but if the fan is making the noise, replace the fan... Fan should come with thermistor (little whit sensor).... Also, you should know that there are many other problems to come with this GE refrigerator.... Such as;



    BIGGEST problem is; one day either everything will stop working and all your food will go bad, or you will have a defrost problem (ice build up on evap coils in the freezer blocking airflow to the refrigerator side therefore causing food in fridge side to go bad)



    Computer board located on back of refrigerator behind square panel is the cause of this big problem....



    I suggest spending an extra $126.00 and buy yourself the main control board (part # wrx55x10552)



    And if you already have the fan and the computer board, you might as well replace the bottom thermistor in the freezer and the thermostat!



    I hope I'm not overloading you, but they dont make refrigerators like they use to and GE is the WORST refrigerator on the market!



    But in GE's defence, once you replace ALL that I have listed above you will have a good refrigerator!



    :) Brian

I have a Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator. The freezer is not cooling enough to keep frozen. It is blowing cold air and the refrigerator part seems to be working.


If your freezer is cold then you may have a defrost cycle issue. There are typically three components for the defrost cycle. Heater bar, thermostat and timer. If the defrost system fails ice starts to build up in the back of the freezer until it prevents cold air from getting into the fridge. When I took off the back panel inside my freezer it was a block of ice. You can melt the ice with a hair dryer and order new parts.

Howling sound from freezer fan section


it is most likely the fan bushings that are making the noise. you can try to lube them with a light oil if you want to buy some time. but the fan motor will need to be replaced soon.

I would look to the condenser where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system for your problem. Check and make sure the condenser fan operates, check the compressor for operation. If the condenser is plugged with dust it will cause the compressor to cycle on its thermal overload protector. Normally in back there is a removable panel to access the condenser and compressor area. make sure you reinstall the cover after you are done. It is critical to proper operation and cooling of the system.

GE GSL25JFR Freezer fan noise.


It is very common for the fan inside the freezer to develop a loud noise as it runs. Its in an environment that is hard on them, cold, wet. Its a small and simple motor, and you are right in believing there will be more problem in the future, as the stator is probably touching the housing. It has a sleeve type bearing, and its probably worn a little causing the shaft to wobble. Eventually it will stop completely and the freezer will get warm.

GE GSL25JFR Freezer fan noise.


You are correct in believing the fan is going to be a problem. The evaporator fans inside the freezer compartment are common at going bad. I believe it is due to the extreme temperature and moisture conditions inside the application. The noise is the stator or bearing equivalent going out, the speed should remain constant. It may eventually make a screeching noise upon start up, or just lock up completely. The good news is replacements are relatively cheap and easy to find. If you do replace it yourself, make sure the fan blades are blowing in the right direction. If possible, remove the old one and bring it with you to the local appliance parts supplier and he should be able to help you get the right one, it will probably be a kit of some sort with multiple mounting brackets, screws, and maybe even a couple of blades. don't let this intimidate you. Most of this you will not use.
