GE Refrig Makes Noise


It is new and has a high pitched whine sound. Most people can't hear it because it is so high pitched. The repair guy came out and said he could hear it and it is the compressor, but that all the compressors for GE are like that. He said it did not warrant replacing, but I could call another repair place and GE. Has anyone else experienced this before? Was it solved by replacing the compressor? Thanks.

GE Refrig Makes Noise


Before I moved into my new house last March I had a GE Profile and could hardly tell it was running. I purchased that one about 8 years ago and they may be using a different compressor now. Not sure they would replace the compressor under warranty unless it was very annoying, but you say you are the only one that hears it.

I had a GE S/S before this and didn't have this problem. This sound is so annoying that I can't stand to sit in my dining room or relax at all.

GE Refrig Makes Noise


I bought a new refig. when we moved into our new house two years ago. I bought an Amana and mine makes the most annoying noises that I have ever heard from a refrig. I have contacted the service center, the company and whom ever else I could contact to try and get this fixed. No one will come out and fix my NEW refrig. I was told "thats the way they sound now". I find this hard to believe! So I don't know what to tell you but, do what I am going to do and that is live with it for the next year or so and then buy a new one but, you can be sure that I am going to make them turn it on and listen to it before I buy it. Most appliance companies have merged or they have been bought out by another appliance company so now I think theres only about one or two of them. Whirlpool is another one that I will never buy from again. My Neptune washer and dryer are the worst machines that I have ever bought. Sad that you spend several thousand dollars for appliances and you can't get them to work properly or get customer service to give a crap when you have a problem. Not like it use to be in the old days!

I can turn it off inside and when the compressor goes off the noise stops. What are the chances of getting another compressor with the same problem if the compressor is replaced?

thats true but you might also have a inetrnal evap fan that may run only when the comp runs so you also need to eminiate that fan...if it was me any new fridgethat makes an anoying noise like that will be taken back and a diff make purchased..
