SOURCE: my fridge is howling pretty loudly when ever it

Vic it probably correct about the fan. Remove the fan, wires, and bracket. Take the bearing end caps off, clean with q-tip and alcohol, then oil with clean 30 wt. oil, reassemble. No more howling for at least a year.

Typically this happens when the ice maker is not getting the water pressure it needs to fill the trays. Replace your filter on the ice maker and this should solve your problem.

SOURCE: Howling noise from freezer fan, GE side-by-side

Replace the fan, Remove the evaporator cover in the back of freezer, and probably another cover for the fan. Unplug your refer first. Usually their are two screws holding the fan bracket to the wall or mount. disconnect the wires, and replace. Their is a newer model evap fan motor that does not have wiring terminals to disconnect, it is hard wired together and you have to practically remove everything in the freezer compartment to get at it. You have to cut wiring and splice the new fan motor in. Fairly tough job. Usually an evaporator fan motor bearing fails from the refer being moved or in storage for a few days at least with the doors closed and the unit unplugged. This allows all that moisture that was in the freezer to get into the metal parts of the fan motor and cause this problem. To prevent this always block the doors open if your refer is going to be off for a few days. This will allow the unit to dry out without damage. Sometimes it was just a bad motor from the factory. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

GE model GSS22JERF BB keep hearing loud howling noise coming from the freezer size. Don't know the cause


Uh-huh... Ivy Joseph,

Well ...
unless your cat is missing that characterization is going to need some EXPANSION... clarification... definition.
..
The door is open/closed has no impact on "howling"...??

The unit is OTHERWISE WORKING... (????)
or some issues have accumulated to attract your attention.

Your diagram shows a pretty standard side x side configuration...

a "WORKING" refrigerator won't be howling. An iced up refrigerator can encase the EVAPORATOR FAN... and the howling will be that fan shaft spinning in a FROZEN FAN.

The noise should stop on OPENING the door...

Iced up... can come from several sources
- huge air intrusion
- Defrost circuit failure

Go to the location below to get an idea of how our machine fits together...

The part depicted is the second LEAST LIKELY
failure point (defrost thermostat)... First least likely
is the defrost heater element...

Most likely... DEFROST TIMER (or PCB)

Hope this helps... comment me back with progress questions (I'm usually here daily)

Howling


Howling suggests something wrong!!!! Just kidding , of course. It does suggest that something is rubbing. Most noises are caused by vibration, same thing as the noise when my old bones rub together because the cartilege has worn away over the years. I suggest you find a food grade lubricant, hunt around at Lowe's or Home Depot for same. and if you have one, use a finger pressure squirt gun to squirt some of this stuff into the mechanisms that are inside your ice making unit. There are some small mechanisms in an ice maker that develop some pretty good forces especially to break up the ice. Unfortunately I am sure there may be some mechanisms that you can not get to very easily and you may have to take something apart.. Yeah, I know, involves emptying the fridge and all that bother...

My fridge is howling pretty loudly when ever it runs , the howling is coming from behind the ice maker turned the ic e maker off but unit st ill howls what s wrong


Hi, It sounds like the evaporator fan motor is going bad or there is frost building up and hitting the fan blade.
Unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear panel inside the freezer and locate the fan.
You can plug the refrigerator in and see if the fan is making the noise.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

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.
