Our GE Profile french door refrigerator (Model # pfs22sisbss) makes humming noises inconsistently. We've had the motor and fan replaced but it continues to make noise and the electric bill is much higher when the fridge is plugged in. When we close one door, the other door pops open and both doors' suctions do not appear to close tightly. Can you diagnose the problem so that we can appropriately order the right parts to replace? Thank you very much!
The unit making a vibration noise could be caused by just about anything. The evaporator fan and condenser fans are where to start first. Checked them for vibration and if there are any vibrations then replace the part. Also check to make sure that the condenser fan motor is not vibrating. For the door not closing tightly, check to make sure that the drain tube is not frozen and if not then it may be necessary to replace the door seals.
I need to replace my door gasket - where can I find instructions on how to do that?
Answer Hello Jake. When replacing the gasket, snap in the lower locking
tab into the door, this will position the upper locking
tab and the tension spring at their proper location.
Make sure both ends of the tension spring are in the
door before snapping in the upper locking tab. Neither
of the spring tabs should be visible. After securing the pivot arm to the door, place the dove tail of the gasket into the door
channels starting at the handle side moving to the hinge side. After installing the gaskets
operate the doors several times to make sure the gasket moves properly. Keep these gaskets cleaned and lubricated to extend gasket life.
