Re: Noisy ice dispenser door

It could be something as simple as you might need to manually defrost your ice maker. There is a auger that moves the ice forward that could be iced up. Try that first.

Ice Maker not dispensing, auger not running

Hi Zack, this is AP!

I understand you are experiencing trouble with your Frigidaire refrigerator not dispensing ice from the dispenser on model#PLHS267ZA. First, check to see that both doors are closed. The dispenser will not operate if the freezer door is not closed to make the safety switch located where the door meets the outer wall of the freezer. Close the door and make sure nothing is blocking the door keeping it from closing. Another troubleshooting tip is to disconnect the power to your refrigerator for 5 minutes, then reconnect and try to dispense ice. If you are still experiencing the same problem there could be a problem with the motor releasing the ice. If your appliance is still in warranty, you may want to check with the manufacturer to determine any warranty coverage, or if there are any professionals in your area who will not only be able to ensure this is the appropriate fix, but may actually save you some cost if is something simpler to repair. I hope this information helps to some degree.

Best of Luck,

Ice dispenser appearing to get stuck in the open

The noise is probably the solenoid which operates the door or the one that switches it from cube to crushed ice. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} You'll have to look to see what's wrong.

Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.
Here's a diagram of the dispenser which may help.

Maytag MFD2560HES - water flow restricted - noisy fridge

The flow of water is controlled by a solenoid. Thus magnetic -- rather electromagnet which mones the vale from open & close, both in the ice-maker & the water dispenser.
Thus the valve which is activated when door closes, must have lost its earlier condition and must be making an irritable buzz whenever its on. Simply get the Valve assembly replaced, preferably from their authorized service center closest to your place of residence.

Intermittent flapping noise whirlpool fridge freezer

Hi: Go easy on my rating as this is just something to try. You say it dosn't have a dispenser. Does it have an Ice maker? If so is it hooked up? If not try raising the lever on the ice maker up to the off position. The water valve may ve trying to open and without water pressure it will make a noise. It would also be related to the switches on the door. I hope this helps, Jeff

Ice chute make noise when closing

this disp has a friction motor that delays the dispenser door when it closes. this friction motor has gone bad and needs replacing here is the part number 1120581 this part is fairly easy to replace yourself.
  • remove disp cover. older units had 2 small philips screws in bottom of front cover, newer ones will have 2 slots that you have to use flat tip screw driver to pry cover off.
  • remove screws holding switch bracket there are 3 of them
  • bracket should be movable out of the way now
  • you will uncover the fricton motor it is held in place with one screw with an arm attached to the disp door and lever.
  • just remove screw and remove motor and reinstall new motor and all parts in reverse order.
BTW this motor is not electrical so no wiring to do. the noise you hear is annoying but as long as the disp door continues to close it will be ok if you dont want to replae it at this time. if i an help you any further please ask thanks Peyton
