Kenmore Side by side ice disp. in door making loud humming noise

Yesterday the Ice Dispenser just started making a really loud and REALLY ANNOYING humming noise.

Funny thing is that the ice maker has never even worked. We bought the Fridge / Freezer New and had never plugged it in due to lack of space to fit it in and rented places that already had a fridge. We later bought a house and finally got to use it bought the ice maker has never worked. And now due to a remodel in the kitchen has been sitting in the dining room for approx. 6 months. Fridge working fine but Freezer not even hooked up to water for this 6 months. Suddenly yesterday it just started humming LOUDLY and smelling like it is getting hot. Like slightly burnt rubber or plastic.

Something we also noticed that we had never noticed before.....when the door is shut (or the light button is pushed in when you close the door) the channel that the ice would come down to be dispensed through comes open and stays open while the door is shut. This seems that it would let alot of cold air escape the freezer and also let warm air in. Not sure if this is what is happening but seems odd to open when the door is shut. And close when the door is open.

We took off the outside panel where the ice dispenser is and there is another cover that has a sticker with these numbers / letters.............

Can you please HELP?

CHeck to make sure your freezer is 0 to 5 degrees. If it is warmer than that the water valve wont open to the ice maker. Have you replaced the water filter?

Water frozen in the freezer supply line - you need to thaw out the freezer. About six hours, door open, turn freezer OFF. You'll need a cooler with dry ice for your frozen food. 99% certain it'll work after that.

SOURCE: ice maker icing up

Sounds like you may have a couple of problems here. The frost build up could be from a bad door seal. Moist air can be drawn in and collect on the inside. As for the water temp, it sounds like the water line connected to the refrigerator could be tapped off a hot water line. It needs to be connected to a potible cold water line.

SOURCE: Kenmore side by side water leaking from freezer

You can buy a kit from whirlpool. In the kit is a metal tab that mounts onto the defrost heater. It is long enough to go into the hole. When the heater comes on for defrost the heat transfers down to the hole and keeps it from getting plugged up with ice. Part number 819043

My Igloo ice 102C is making a loud noise when it pumps in water to make Ice. How do I fix this


It shouldn't make any loud noises at all. Most likely it's a water pump related problem. Most pumps make loud noises when they are lose from their base due to a broken clip or untighten screw. It could also be caused by a faulty pump. Either way, if you just bought it and have the receipt, return it and have them give you another one.

Freezer makes really loud noise


You need someone to check the fans and where the noise is coming from before the repair cost you a lot of money because of damage it can cause. The fan may be hitting ice in the freezer or out of balance because it is worn out. No one can hear what you hear and someone will need to be there to check these things out, Sea Breeze

The ice maker makes a loud racket unless the freezer door is open.


You have an object jammed in ice makers path. The freezer door has something on it that is pushing into the ice maker perhaps.

I own a Thermador Freedom Collection 18 inch Built-in Freezer Column with Exterior Ice and Water Dispenser Model T18ID80NRP and have had this unit for approx. 2 years as a companion unit to my Thermador...


No solution but just a warning. We had this same thing happen. They sent a repairman to replace the control board. Then did it again. Just before Christmas, the WATER started dispensing by itself. Luckily, I was nearby and heard it or the damage would have been extensive from flooding. They are now 'working on' getting a response from Thermador. I feel like this thing is just a homeowners claim waiting to happen.

ICE MAKER MOTOR RUNS CONSTANTLY AND WONT' TURN OFF ICE IS FULL


It's not too difficult to remove the ice maker. A few screws and the unit will unplug from the fridge. Then you can see why the bar is not turning it off. If it's really broken, check pcappliance.com for parts or a replacement unit. Meanwhile the fridge can keep on working, and you can use trays to make ice.

No water to ice maker or water dispenser


You're funny. This is a portable 12/120 volt model. It dosn't have a water dispenser or ice maker :-)

Kenmore Ice Maker


Sounds like a water valve problem to me. Force the ice maker to cycle. (turn it off and let it get cold for at least an hour then turn it back on). Test for voltage on the ice maker side of the valve. The valve is usually in the back near the floor. Just follow the water line. Another solution. switch the wires on the water valve. then try the water dispenser and see if it makes the ice maker fill up. See if when the ice maker cycles water comes out the door. If the ice maker causes water in the door , replace the valve, If door switch causes ice maker to fill up replace ice maker again.
