SOURCE: Unusual Fan noise on the freezer side

Matt, this model has a main board in back that controls the operation of the evap fan. This is a two speed, DC motor and the fan takes a least one minute to change speeds. Therefore any speed changes in less than a minute time is abnormal. I usually find that the board is causing the problem. If you're handy with a meter you can do some tests. On harness J2 on the control board (just below the top harneses) check the DC voltage on pins 3 and 8 reading from left to right. There should be at least 12VDC. If you find a fluctuation of voltage, your board is giving you the problem. Catriver...post back

SOURCE: Ice Maker too slow

bayfishr, I'll try to give you an idea on how this thing works and let you do some checks. The cycle is controlled by temp. The harvesting process begins when the IM thermostat closes signaling the harvest temp has been reached. The closed thermostat supplies power to the IM motor and heater. Therefore the colder you keep it, the faster the production unless something has failed. I see a lot of heaters fail. You can test this. When the IM starts it cycle, test the voltage from L to H on the module,they will be marked. Should read 120V. The heater on the bottom of the mold should be getting hot. Disconnect the harnes and ohm it. Should ohm out at approx 72 ohms, same test points. If this checks good, check the center wheel on the module itself. Two clips keep the wheel in place. If one is cracked off, the IM will not fucntion properly. Other than colder temps, there is no way to adjust the speed of the cycle. Keep the flap in front of the ice-maker down so that the cold air is drawn across that IM. Catriver.

suspect you have a problem with the defrost system and hence the noise with the fan. take back panel off inside the freezer and if i'm right, melt ice off with a hairdryer. get back to me to say the results if you want

SOURCE: Fan noise in freezer of my GE side-by-side refridgerator

You don't have to worry about the ice and frost, Your heater does that for you Your heater comes on and defrost every day. You just need to tighten the screws and clean up the vent where the noise is coming from but I wouldn't worry about it. The temperature on your fridge and freezer is running optimal, You know the saying, if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it....just tap the vent covers every few days.

SOURCE: GE Monogram freezer side working but refrigerator side is not.

Did you clean the condenser?  Is the unit FULLY defrosted?   Defrost fully!!!!!!
Did he check the amount of gas in the unit?  If your unit has low gas...it is in need of more.  R12 is expensive.
Check gas level:  Shut unit for at least one hour.  View compressor.  Several pipes...we're looking at the largest.  Start the unit.  This pipe will begin to frost.  If it does not clear to dry, ice or wet...stays frosted...it is low.  Get the repair guy back ... but ask how much he'll charge first.

GE model GSS22SGRBSS freeser fan slows down


Same problem and think this unit is a piece of JUNK. In 5 years of service i have had to replace the Water shut off Valve twice, and the heater located on the bottom of the freezer which helps to keep the freezer defrosted. The fan has a whistling sound constantly, within 2 days of putting something in the freezer it is full of ice. Sorry pal, but as I said this model is a piece of junk.

Fan sounds like it runs slow, fast, slow with a wining sound. There is black residue in the back bottom of the deepfreeze.


If the black residue , is on the left , in the back , then the # 5 thermistor needs to be replaced . This is a white torpedo looking piece , with 2 white wires going to it , inside a holder at the bottom of the freezer panel . This thermistor , tells the control board , the freezer temp , and if bad , it will " lie" to the board , which can cause the fan speed to vary .

Glad you mentioned the residue with the noise . Had other questions concerning the fan speed , so now , it finally makes sence . Thanks for a complete question WITH observation .

I have a GSL25JFPH BS refrigerator by GE. It made the whirring sound, a repairman came out and told me that the fan motor needed replacing, price of $277. I sent him away, and after a few minutes on the internet, saw on this site that a new circuitboard (part# WR55X10656) should fix it. I found it on ebay for $83, and it took about fifteen minutes to install. No more whirring!!
