Question about GE Refrigerators
We have to take the food out and mess with the shield to get it to stop. Then everything is fine until an item of food accidentally touches it. The shield seems too flimsy. How I can I use the shelf for food and not have to worry about the plastic shield getting bumped and causing the buzzing noise?
Try taking off the fan cover and see if the blade has slid too far forward on the motor shaft. If that's the case just push it back a bit to give it more clearance( do this with the fridge unplugged)).. It could also be ice buildup which is then hit by the blade at the slightest pressure..

The problem is the compressor isnt starting. The relay is probably ok. It should have 5yr warranty on the compressor. However if you purchase a Supco RC0810 start assist relay available at all appliance parts stores, it will start the compressor, however this is only a temp fix. But it should last till sears can put a new compressor in.

In my GE side-by-side refrigerator (model number GSS20IEMDWW), there is a motor-controlled flapper door between the freezer and fresh food side. Cold air from the freezer side cools the fresh food side when that flapper door is open.
It is located at the top of the fresh food side on the dividing wall between the fresh food side and the freezer. If this is blocked with something (large left-over container, soft drink bottles, etc), it _may_ be enough to prevent sufficient cooling of the fresh food side.
Of course, there may be a more serious problem with the flapper door mechanism or the control unit that signals the flapper door to open/close.
The vegetable and deli drawers may have a small opening (manually controlled with a wheel or a slider of some sort) that connects those drawers to the freezer side, thus explaining how those areas are still functioning as expected.

Hi, I have been in the refrigeration business for over 15 years. I also own a Whirlpool friege with the exact same problem.
a. The condensor fan HAS to work. That fan is not to cool the compressor, it is in place to cool the condensor. If your condensor fan does not work, your compressor may trip.
b. Those emerson fans make a racket because the bearings wear out very quickly. Actually, the bearing does not wear out, the shaft wears out.
c. You can fix this by either fitting a small fan to cool the condensor OR
d. You can buy a similar motor from Whirlpool but they are VERY expensive OR
e. You can buy a similar motor from Micro Instrument Company, 8, Industrial Area Ambala Cantonement, Ambala 133001, India and turn the fan to fit in the space.
