Customer Question
My Gibson Freezer Model...

My Gibson Freezer Model # GFU16F7AW7 makes loud humming noise. Does not it do it all of the time, What do you think the problem

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model? And have you checked the settings recently?

GFU16F7AW7

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

If a simple repair, yes. Someone told me it is probably the cooling fan.

Does not make the noise all of the time. Sometimes it is quite for an hour or two, but then starts making the noise again
