Re: GE REFRIGIRATOR HUMMING SOUND
It could be the evaporator fan touching the ice that builds up in the evaporator.
if it is the fan, then you may have a problem with your defrost cycle. the defrost heater isnot heating up in order to defrost the ice . if it buids up, it would be so thick that the ice could touch the fan that would create the humming sound.

If replacing the defrost thermostat fixed the icing problem that doesn't indicate your settings are wrong. But the desired temp in the freezer is from 0 to 10 degrees and in the fridge around 35 degrees.The actual number on your dial depends on the personal use. Use a thermometer to check it and allow 24 hours after changing it to check it.
sounds like its bearings in a fan motor probably your evaporator fan motor it is located behind the plastic shell in your refrig. you have to take out the lining and then you will see the fan, evapartor and etc.
There is an electrically activated air dampener in the upper left back side of the refrigerator section which most likely has broken (in the open position), allowing cold air from the freezer to continue to enter the fresh foods section. Replace the dampener assembly.
Your model needs attention soon to prevent damage to the control board. Something simple as a fan going bad will cause a chain reaction on your model. Let me know if you would like my assistance or your you would like to call in a technician. I can help you repair from here or my site. Thanks, Sea Breeze
There is a timer that determines the defrost of the cooling coil inside the back wall of the freezer. defrost timer may be located in the area of the controls for temperature. Look for a hole in that area and recessed in that hole you may find a clutch head screw. Turn this screw clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one click. The freezer coil will be in the defrost mode for 18-22 minutes and then the refrigerator should return to the cooling mode. Make sure the condenser is clean and free of dust and dirt. Condenser is where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system and on most models it is located in back behind a removable panel. Reinstall the panel after cleaning the condenser.
