I too have the incredibly loud ice dumping going on in my 4door new Samsung refrigerator that echoes throughout the house and could wake up a neighbor!! All the above solutions appear to be from repairmen that are not giving any solutions to the VOLUME issue of the ice being dumped. I prefer not to spend
$300 for a visit to tell me that "that's just the way it is", you'll have to live with it. Call Samsung or write them and tell them
the ridiculously loud sound from the ice dropping in the tray is
unacceptable. I'm going to!!

    Call Samsung as I am going to do and tell them the VOLUME
    in which their icemakers drop the ice in to the bin is unacceptable! This has to be a DESIGN ISSUE as the icemaker makes perfectly good ice and it is a brand new refrigerator. Don't spend $200 or more on a service call to be told that "That's just the way they make them, ha ha ha" .
    Our icemaker drops the ice so loud or neighbor can hear it!
    Your not alone with your problem, and for a $3,000 refrigerator
    the public should expect better.

    Called Samsung right before finding these posts. They said they have no record of any similar complaints, even though my unit sounds like it is the same as Yours, four-door, $3k retail price. Sounds like they just don't want to fix the problem. It may also explain why Home Depot was selling a $3200 fridge for $1799!

SOURCE: I have a samsung rfg297aars refrig. I believe the

you need to check the flapper in the door where the ice comes out,, if you take the ice bin out look down in the hole where the ice comes out,, if it is not sealing good it will let warm air come up the chute and melt the ice,, if it is sealing good,, then you need to check and see if the water fill tube( the one that goes into the icemake) is not froze up or has asomething blocking it

SOURCE: I have a Samsung RB19ZASH. The ice maker makes

I think maybe there is a number missing in your model number. But I may be able to help you.You model came with different type of icemakers and some were mechanical and some were electronic. My concern is the popping noise you hear. I just found the part and your model is a RB195ZASH The main component of the ice maker is part number DA97-00258E I think you may need someone to have a look at the ice maker and make sure its not binding while rotating or the defrost heater may be remaining on. There also could be parts that are replaceable for your model but I will need to search for the complete parts list. I will do that for you and send you some links soon, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Ice maker bin indicator arm is stuck in the bin is full position

You should be able to move it gently to the lower position.  If it doesn't want to move don't force it.  Try shutting the ice maker off in case the arm is frozen in the up position.  After the ice maker defrosts a bit try again to move the arm gently.

My ice maker makes a lot of noise at night I wake hearing it making ice droping sounds. I don't use a lot of ice can I turn the infrared receiving switch to off?


The noise is probably ice dropping into the pan and the normal ice maker and water valve sounds associated with making ice. Most Whirlpool models have a slide cover to "turn off" the ice maker - closing this cover fools the control into thinking the bin is full. Your owner's manual should provide greater detail on this option.

I get a loud grinding noise from my ice maker. What can make that noise?


Hi,

Thank you for your information you provided, could the noise be described as a clicking or ticking noise? The reason I ask is I have heard for this to be a motor driven harvest and the heating within the ice maker is not engaging to release the ice, so the unit continues to push the ice out causing the gear to jump a tooth. If this is the case the only fix is replacing the ice maker to fix the issue. Other possible cause of grinding is the water in not entering the ice maker (hollow ice cubes) so the water is accumulating around the fan motor and freezing up. As the fan turns on the grinding is the fan motor cutting away at the ice. Gain access to the fan motor and check for ice around the fan, if its there remove that ice. The cause is that the water is not getting into the ice maker and causing this issue. Good Luck, I hope this helps.

Loud noise, not ice maker


There are two large motors in those. 1 is the fan and the other is the compressor. There is nothing that you can do about the compressor but the fan can get noisy if there is an ice build up from the coils not defrosting right.

How do I stop the loud knocking noises coming from my refridgerator?


Pull the fridge away from the wall and inspect the compressor. Your description sounds like the compressor is hitting something. It is rubber mounted and usually can be pushed away from whatever it is hitting.You do not want to jamb something to stop the noise, as the compressor needs to move freely. Many compressors shake during start up and shutdown, and this is considered normal. Abnormal if the compressor hits something during this movement.

Very Loud Ice Maker in GE gfss6kkxs Fridge


Sorry to inform you but GE refrigerators are known for their noise making machines. I myself have a GE Profile side by side but will never own another GE product. After repairing appliances GE is better priced than their competition and the reason cheaper made product. Sometimes cheaper doesn't mean better. Outside looks really good but what you don't see is ugly. BB

I also had a loud fan and it was caused by ice build-up on the fan in the back of the freezer. From inside the freezer, I removed the plastic grill that covers the fan (I think I also had to remove the side rails and ice maker) then just let the fan defrost in the sink. Made sure it was nice and dry before putting it back in or else ice would just form again. I also took a sheet of plastic and put it between the ice maker and fan grill to stop water from dripping onto the fan and haven't had a noisy fan since. I just need to remove the ice build-up from on top of the plastic sheet every now and then, but that's much easy than taking everything apart to get to the fan.
