Customer Question
My freezer side of...

My freezer side of the refrigerator (2000) makes an annoying buzzing sound that goes off frequently. I do not have the ice-maker installed, but it sounds like it's trying to do something!

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

GE Monogram purchased in 2000 new

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No!

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

There's a little switch that has a green light. It's possible to change it, and I don't know how it was set or if something hit it and changed it's position?

That is a compressor relay issue, can you get behind the unit and remove the lower panel?
