Default GE making motorboat noise...
Model Number: GTE16GTHCRWW   Brand: GE   Age: Less than 1 year

Hi all-

I have a small refrigerator purchased new less than a year ago. Suddenly, it's begun to make a rumbling noise and the sound is clearly coming from the rear top area behind the freezer area. Is there a way to resolve this? I've slid the refrigerator out, repositioned it, repositioned anything in freezer that may be leaning against the rear wall: nothing stops.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions an recommendations- greatly appreciated.

LOL... problem resolved.

I dissembled that rear fan area and repositioned the 'evaporator fan' on it's shaft- simply pulled forward gently and the pushed back. Sound entirely gone.

Note to forum members here. This forum, appliancepartspros.com, has an awesome video feature when you click the model number. This lead me to the solution.
