GE sxs freezer howl
« on: July 20, 2009, 07:40:54 AM »

Freezer is working fine but when motor/fan runs makes a howling noise. Definetly coming from inside freezer compartment. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance!

You probably need to lubricate the fan. Remove the back panel in the freezer to get to it. Take the fan assembly out and take off the 2 rotor bearings you can inject oil on the inside of each, as much as they will suck up. Try 3 in 1 or Zoom oil or any light machine oil.
