Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
I too am experencing a intermediate howling noise coming from the lower freezer section of my 2 year old GE refrigerator (Model # GSC23LGQBB-WW). I have read posting here and on other sights that identify the problem as either the evaporator fan (Part # WR60X10185) or the control board that regulates that same fans speed (Part #WR55X10552). One is around $50.00, the other over $100.00 Before I order either one I'd appreciate help figuring out which one is the source of the howling, and if anyone has been successful in getting GE to provide the part/s at no charge. If so which of the several GE Customer Service #'s on thier website did you use to reach GE? Thanks! Sleepless in San Diego
Suggest a defrost with doors open over night, what often happens with this model is that you get an ice build up near the fan which causes an extremly loud noise, very common problem.

I think I have the same problem. The unit is also about 2 years old (GSH25KGRBB). I have an extended warranty. They already replaced the controller card. I see it is the exact part number you have mentioned. It seemed to help for awhile but I think it has gotten worse again. The noise is more consistent after they changed the board. Less revving up to "turbo" mode. Howling is a good description. I can hear it now, on the other side of the house. I would change the fan out. I think they did the board first because it probably is easier even if the part cost is higher. I will probably call them back again. This will be the third time. The first time they just changed the little flapper on the ice dispenser. Otherwise the unit cools and runs flawlessly.
