Question:

My fan is contacting the evaporator housing cover when it spins and making a lot of noise. I have replaced the fan blade already. Could it be the grommets worn out and not causing the blade to turn properly centered? The fan turns freely. Could the cover itself have warped over time and now contacts the blade as it turns? I assume the motor itself is ok, since it works. Thanks and you guys have a great site. It’s helped me many times!!!

Walter for model number PSHS6MGZBESS
Answer:

Hi Walter, Thank you for your inquiry. If the grommet has worn out they could cause this issue where they are not properly securing the fan blade. If you would like place an order for the grommet, you may order it online, through one of online chat sessions or by calling our customer service line and anyone would be happy to assist you. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

How do I know if the grommets need to be replaced. There is a terrible noise coming from the freezer. The fan spins freely, so I believe the problem is not the fan motor. Aside from the grommet, what else could cause the noise.

Margaret for model number GTH17DBDFRWW
Answer:

Hi Margaret, Thank you for the question. If the grommets needed to be replaced the fan blades would have a wobble to them as they spun. If they spin smoothly and freely I suggest replacing the motor. Hope this helps!

At times we hear a whirring sound that is not smooth. It seems to go slow then faster then will slow down again (never did this before, quite noticeable)--freezer does freeze food but ice cream seems always a little too soft. Can you help?

Terry for model number gcl22kgresv
Answer:

Hello Terry, Thanks for your question. Check the grommets for the evaporator fan motor and replace them if they are loose or broken. Aside from that, check the evaporator fan motor itself. It may have ice clogging it or the fan blades may be damaged. I hope this helps.

Question:

How do you test control board to ensure that it is not fault for not starting

Wayne for model number HSS25GFPHWW
Answer:

Hi Wayne, Thank you for the question. You can check to make sure that the overload and relay are getting 120 vac to it with a multi meter. If it is then the most likely cause would be a defective compressor. If no power then the control board would likely be the issue. Hope this helps!

Refrigerator fan was very noisy and we started to notice frost on our food in the freezer.

I should state first that I am a DIYer and have no experience fixing appliances. The fan noise seems to be a common problem. It has something to do with the bearings. Mine was actually hitting the housing in front on the fan as well. Getting into the installation, I knew I had to take the back panel and fan housing off. But I found out that everything needs to come off. This is the ice maker, the housing underneath the ice maker as well as the fan housing and back panel. This isn't difficult but good to know before hand. A quick note, the light bulb housings come out by pulling them forward. It's a good idea to label the screws as you take them out as there are quite a few that need to come out. I replaced the evaporator fan the fan blade and one grommet. In hind sight I should have replaced both grommets as they both showed wear. They are both exactly the same so you can order two of the above. All in all this is a pretty easy fix. It takes a bit of time, but it's not to difficult. Th most difficult thing was the wiring. The fan comes with a six prong connector and has four prongs taken up. There is, what I think is a temperature sensor, that takes up the other two prongs. Since I didn't order that part, I had to cut it out of the old connector and insert it into the new evaporator fan connector. This was a bit difficult and would have been much easier if I had ordered the part. Unfortunately, I don't know what that part is called, but it must be some kind of temperature sensor as it clips on the coil. The wires also run through a blue rubber wire-run that needs to be sliced open. This was pretty easy to do with a small serrated pocket knife. SLice it on the back side of it and pull the old wires out. When you are ready to install, just run the new wires through the hole from the old wires. Once you have replaced the fan the new blade and the two new grommets, it's just a matter of replacing all the equipment. Fan housing first, then the upper housing followed by the ice maker and the back panel. Good luck

High pitch noise from the evaporartor fan

Firt Removed the Ice Maker Tray and the full ice maker assembly. Removed the plastic shroud that sits over the fan assembly. Since the original connector (or the plug)for the motor had also a temperature sensor attached to it and did not know how to remove and trabsfer to the new motor connector I spliced the new motor to the old connector. It was fairly straight forward. Overall the job was not that difficult and since I was trying to be more meticulous it took a little longer. An average person can do it in around 30 to 45 minutes.

Freezer was not freezing food.

Inspected freezer because food was not freezing, getting cold, but not freezing. Noticed fan was not blowing air, but making a little motor noise, like it's trying to turn. Removed cover panel, and found the fan blade rubbing on the panel, fan shaft was worn out and very loose, wobley. That told me the fan needed to be replaced. Found part on the GE Partselect website and ordered the parts via the website order process. This was easy. The parts were shipped quickley and were at my front door the next day. Couldn't believe it. The actual process was very easy: Remove cover, remove bracket holding fan motor, remove and replace motor, re-assemble parts. About 20-25 minutes from start to finish. Freezer is working like it's suppose to.

Loud sound in freezer

I followed the video for my model refrigerator on parts select. My hint: when returning the back panel of the freezer, it's slightly adjustable left and right to avoid grazing the fan.
