Hi I have a GE side by side refrigerator with ice cube maker. The
freezer fan has been cycling what seems to be on and off or fast and
slow about every few seconds making a winning sound that you can hear
with the door closed. The freezer still is functioning properly. It
only started happening in the last few months. Is this normal or does
the fan need to be replaced.
I just fought and won that battle, my first thought was the fan, but it
passed a bench test with flying colors. I replaced both defrost
thermostats, (bear to get at) still no joy, then the defrost timer,
apparently that was it. I took the old one apart and the points were
fried. Both of those control current to the fan, at least on the non
circuit board (older) models. Bottom line was I saved a $6k Monogram
Mine did this after taking a knock from the drawer. I pulled it out, and
found its bearing had been knocked off centre, creating friction & noise.
Re-lube & reassembly fixed it straight away. Might want to try this before
