If it has an ice maker, the motor may be going out, so to find out, isolate the issue. Although first disconnect for 24 hrs. so to melt any frost away from moving parts; I believe you already have that covered. If still an issue, first re-disconnecting the power source, going to the back, removing any covering, finding the power source for the ice/water mechanism (usually on the right side or opposite the compressor), regardless it can't be missed. Disconnect the ice maker, and if the noise is gone, there you go. Reorder and replace the ice maker motor; a common issue due to constant use.

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.

Plastic box you're referring to contains the start components for the compressor. The clicking sound sound you hear is the protective overload shutting the compressor off because it won't start.
Two possibilities
1. The components inside the plastic box (cover) are defective and need replaced. You can remove them, by snapping off the cover and pulling them straight off. Most appliance parts houses will be happy to test them.
2. The compressor has failed internally.
Note: In my personal experience when dealing with whirlpool Estate models, 99% of the time it has been a failed compressor.

Whirlpool refrigerator side x side doors make a popping noise if opened past halfway... model GS5SHAXNL00


The door closing cams were worn on both doors. I had to buy a cam kit that cost about $10.00 and had the parts for both doors in it, take off the doors, and replace the cams. Before taking off the door that has an ice and water dispenser, I had to turn off the water to the fridge, take off the front grill, and disconnect the water tube that goes into the door (as the tube is threaded through the door cam). After replacing the door closing cams and reassembling, there is no longer a popping sound.

Very loud noise whirling sound


Can you tell me where the sound is coming from? Like inside freezer or under refrigerator. Most sounds like you describe come from a fan motor and the fan blades are hitting something. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
