Hi all, we never use the "crisper" draw at the bottom of the fridge. I went to clean out the fridge and what a surprise. I've been noticing a humming noise coming from the fridge but didn't think much of it. Whenever the fridge doors are open the noise stops. Upon immediately closing the noise starts back up. After more investigation it sounds like the fan in the freezer area is making the noise (in picture). That fan is spinning and blowing cold air when the freezer door is open. Ice maker and water dispenser work fine. Internal temp currently set at 39 degrees in fridge. Trying to provide any information I can. I'm not sure if it's a defrost timer, heater, sensor or thermostat (or neither). Any solutions, recommendations, etc. are welcomed. Thank you!

Is your freezer and refrigerator door gaskets sealing properly? No air leaks coming in?

If no air leaks, GE came out with a kit to address this problem:
WR60X10352 Fz Fan & Felt Asm
