That would likely be the ice maker "motor module". They are notorious for failing. The plastic gear on the front pulls away from the contact springs from ear tab failure, etc. It's an easy fix to replace the whole module (about $70 bucks). See the diagram here. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Whirlpool/THIERSZO.gif

    Item 35 is the whole motor module, it's similar on many many fridges.

My refrigerator makes a whirring noise.


If you have an icemaker, this sound may be the inlet water valve to the icemaker opening and closing.

Icemaker rakes not moving, though it is in the cycle and making a lound humm, grinding type sound (similar to when it does its normal ice rake cycle.


Normally, icemakers make very little noise. If it is in the middle of a harvest cycle and will not complete the cycle, remove the icemaker and look to see if an object some how fell into the ice cube mold area, preventing the rake from turning. If there is no obstuction, you will have to buy a replacement icemaker, as there are no replacement parts available. NOTE: Do not leave the icemaker in your freezer in the middle of a cycle for extended periods, as the mold heater would be "on" and adding heat to your freezer section the entire time, causing your refrigerator to work harder than normal, and costing more to run.

I emptied the ice from the icemaker into a cooler and then the icemaker quit working. The bar that drops to make ice, seems loose.


The bar that drops has to lock into a plastic clip to activate the switch. Try seeing where it locks into the clip and it should just line up and push in.

Loud noise coming from icemaker...noise decreases when i increase temp and goes away when icemaker shut off. I set the initial temp at 3 degrees, then let it make ice - after about 3 hours it sounded like...


The icemaker is pretty simple, there is a motor, a solenoid, and a couple of switches.

It sounds like the whole icemaker mechanism is jammed or has a broken gear, and the motor is trying it's darndest to turn the stuck mechanism (grinding it's gears in the process), or the gear has already gone, and what's left of the gear is dancing around in there.

My guess is either the $7 icemaker drive gear or the $94 icemaker assembly.

Whirlpool Gold Model GS5SHAXNL 00 makes loud grinding noise about every 40 minutes


I would check your ice maker. You can shut it off by slidding the control on the right hand side of the freezer wall. If the noise quits you need to repair the icemaker. In door ice has had some problem with their icemakers. If that is it they make a kit part #8201515 that will fix it.

My whirlpool aide by side fridge icemaker is making buzzing or humming noise


Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


You said, your ice maker is making a buzzing or humming noise ice maker isn't making much ice. . fridge is about 2 1/2 years old.

This sounds like a clogged water line or a electrical short !
I would get service rather than take a chance on electrical fire.
Or burn up the circuit in the ice maker.


Thank you for giving us the opportunity to advise you.

Ice maker no longer makes ice


Hello,

That could be caused by a number of things. Freezer temperature is too high, The Tube that feeds water into the icemaker could be froze up. Bad Water Valve. or Bad IceMaker.
Ensure the the Bar on the side of the icemaker can go completely down, against the side of the icemaker.

Let me know how you make out.
