Turn the water off under the sink where the small line starts that goes to the fridge or there may be a cut off directly behind the fridge in the supply line. Your water inlet valve may be stuck open. It's where the water supply connects to the fridge.
the popping noise you're talking about, could it just be your self-defroster in operation,sometimes if there a lot of ice and it operates a long time, there could be expansion noises,such as the refrigerator walls expanding/contracting from the heat of the defroster,if it's water you will hear a sizzling popping sound,nothing to fear dear
There is usually a water cut off , behind the refrig , mounted on the wall , or , a cut off under the sink , connected to the cold water line ( with a small cut off valve ) .
The hissing noise , is usually associated with a hole or cracked water line . You can also try removing the ware filter , to see if the noise stops .
Would need more info , to have an idea where the water line is defective .
water valve maybe leaking thru, much like a drippy faucet on a sink, if possible pull the fridge out from the wall and disconnect the plastic water line where it enters the ice maker and see if it's dripping, the water valves are pretty easy to change out and probably will cost less than 40 dollars p.s. you will need to get the ice out of the fill tube to get the water to flow into the icemaker
Here are the steps I took to fix thi:. First, if you tapped into a copper line near your sink, turn off the off the tap completely and turn it back on again. Why? Occasionally, calcium deposits will build there and cut down your water pressure. You may have enough pressure to run your ice maker, but not enough to push the ice out of the line (I'll talk about this later). Turning the tap on and off breaks up the calcium. This will also fix an ice maker that's slow to make ice or makes hollow cubes.
Next, I just kept running my water pump (about sixty seconds or more at a time) until the water finally started to come through. When it did, a few inch-long pieces of of ice came through -- telling me that the problem was a frozen water line. If running the water pump several times doesn't work (I think it took me six tries), consider turning off your fridge for a while (be sure to remove food and pack in dry ice).
there are lots better filters then the ones that go into the fridges install an inline filter into the water line before the fridge that way you filter both the drinking water and the ice maker any hardware store will have them usually your water supply is tapped into the cold under your kitchen sink this is a good place to put the filter if you are connected there
attach cut off valve normally a saddle valve to the cold water line above the cold water cut off of the home, route the water line to the back of the fridge and connect it to the water valve of the ref.
the valve will be behind the compressor cover, and is normally connected with a 1/4 inch compression brass nut
