If anyone has a GE Cafe french door refrigerator, could you help me? We just bought a new GE Cafe 25.1 cu ft french door refrigerator. Love the look, love the interior (well, not a lot of room for tall things but I think this is common with all FD models?), but this unit makes a LOUD whirring noise I can hear 50 feet away. It stops when I open the door. It originates from inside, top left area near the rear side raised fan vent.
Say the word "were" out loud, and hold the "ere" sound. Make it a bit raspy and you have the sound. It is on seemingly all the time, not just when the compressor cycles etc.
Two Ge reps, one just this morning told me it is normal and GE will not do anything because this is a normal sound. It is supposedly the sound of the refrigerant flowing back. Really?
I've never spent so much on a fridge, and I've never had this loud of a unit. Other noises are all really quiet and expected, like ice machine etc.
Would you please listen to yours and let me know? I'm all ears.......thanks!
