    I am sure it's the evap fan motor, mainly on start-up after defrost. Wwwhhhheeerrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
    The thing ain't that old, like 1.5 years or so. Damn Malaysians.
    I have a Mfg extended warranty but ordered the little motor from the same joint that got me the part for my washer, I don't want some dumb ass repair guy in here fooling around with my stuff anyway

    diceman,

    That sound is a defective evaporator blower motor. The bearings are out of it.

    Once, I knew a lady that called the fire department out to remove the poor little bird caught inside the wall behind the refrigerator. lol!

    As most of you know already, I am old and lazy, I hope it ain't hard to get it, looks like it is right near the light under the ice maker.

    check to see that the fan blade hasn't worked back on the motor shaft so that its rubbing against something else.

    You've angered the DIY gods, with that washing machine experience.

    You also got suckered into the extended warranty, most likely by some 14 y.o selling appliances. NICE.

    Which line did he use, to set the hook in you?

    1. All your friends are doing it.
    2. It'll make you look cool.
    3. I'm working my way through high school, and my grandma needs a hysterectomy, and just one more extended warranty commission would put me over the top!


    C'mon, which was it?

    Odd things happening at your house. Are you built over and old Indian burial ground or something? Maybe you need a priest. Something to think about.

    Actually Davey,,,,,,,GE sent me notice when the original warranty expired, so I went for 2 more years, in case the compressor or one of them newfangled controller smokes.
    Generally speaking I never get an extended warranty on anything.
    On my old fridge, they did come out once and change the comp and stuff, right after we bought it, worked great for 15 years after that.
