This could be one of two problems;
the fan is hitting a build up of ice. This could be the defrost timer or the defrost element
the fan's bearings have given out. a new fan motor will fix it
A technician can help you with that

The fridge make weird noises some days. Cooling is good, freezer also works well. My concern is if those noises are prelude to a major damage.


This really depends on the type of noise. If you hear a gurgle type noise while running this is usually normal from the refrigerant pumping through the tubing. Fan type noise blowing air in the freezer section is also normal but if it sounds link the fan is rubbing or grinding you need to look into that noise. Also a similar fan down near the compressor area in the lower back section. A low hum from the compressor while running is normal. If you have and icemaker--water running noise about once per hour for around 10 seconds is all normal while the icemaker is filling. Dropping noise from the cubes falling into the bucket is also normal about once per hour. Hope this helps.

Projector makes lots of noise


Yes, that can solve the problem because there's also a possibility that the lamp is the one that is causing the noise..

Hope that helps........

GE Side by Side Refrig - loud noise behind the ice maker section Model PSS25SGMB BS


it sounds like the evaporator fan blade is hitting some ice that has built up around the blades i have seen this happen a lot on g.e. SxS lately,if you can remove the ice maker and dispenser you can see the fan blade,if you dont want to do this then shut down the refrigerator and leave freezer door open and heat it carefully with a hairdrier to speed the process up to melt this ice then restart it and the noise should be gone

The fan is making a loud noise. It still works but wondered what can be done to stop the noise. It gets to be annoying after awhile.


Someone need first open and determine which fan is making the sound if it is a fan.

Some it may be normal but if a lot of dirt/dust gets on the fan's blades this can be the trouble.

If pinpointed to a single fan--replace it to find out.

You can also (a good resource) GOOGLE the model number with "fan noise" to see if known issue.

I have a model GE JVM1653BD 001 microwave. Sometimes when it runs it makes a loud growling sound. It appears to be heating normally though. Intermittantly makes this noise.


I have the same model ending in 003, and it has made this noise for most of its life of several years now. Every now and again it runs quietly.

My theory is the cooling fan (not the hood fan) is making noise. The problem began within the first year of operation, and up till now everything is in good working order otherwise. There is no odor of failing parts.

My installation book has no electrical circuit diagrams, and I came upon your question when searching the topic.

ASUS Lap top computer, 2 months old' makes loud fan type noises at each start up.


Hi

Its normal for a laptop computer or a desktop computer to spin its fans at maximum speed during start up - its part of the power on self test.

If the fan is very loud like on this video the sound is very bad -


that would be a bad fan, constant bad noise. but if your fan only makes noise in start up, its normal.

your warranty should cover the replacement of the fan if its bad.

CPU fan races


thanks bigunit12 - as I suspected, no real concern

expect the noise is a pain.

I do think the HS might be marginal and so I shall replace sometime with a higher capacity model, also maybe increase fan flow capacity and add a case hot air extractor fan.

Just to make sure
