Continuous knocking noise from ice maker. Ice maker has been off for past 3 months. Only thing that will make it stop is turning it off or unplugging it.


Hi Marcel,
Thank you for contacting fixya.

Our ice maker recently had its water inlet freeze up, preventing water from filling the trays. The mechanism kept dutifully trying to push nonexistent ice cubes into a bin that never filled up, which might account for the knocking noise in your case.
To defrost it we just unplugged the unit, took all the food out of the freezer section, and left the door open for a couple of hours. It wasn't long enough for any of the frozen food to defrost, and since we were careful to minimize opening the refrigerator section's door, the food in that part stayed cold enough to be safe as well.

Ice stays frozen in tray.


Hi Rich Byhre - The heater on the ice maker is energized by an internal thermostat. If it is not cycling once the ice is frozen, then the refrigerator could possibly have a faulty ice maker or the mold is not getting cold enough. I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward and to assist with the repairs.

I have a kenmore coldspot refrigerator that no long makers ice. The water still works but nothing comes from the ice maker anymore. I am not sure if it is the water supply or the sensor. There is no water...


Hi: Try setting your freezer colder. It should be at 0 degrees F to make ice. the ice maker is thermally protected. Don't check to see if it made ice every 30 mins. it's human nature to check, but you will just dump the cold air out of the freezer and slow the production of the ice. Maybe this will help. Food will be frozen at 32 degrees, but not cold enough for the ice maker to cycle on. Ice cream should be rock hard. I hopes this helps, Jeff

Sub Zero isn't cold enough


Sounds like it might just be a simple as a dirty coil. Use a coil brush (you can get at homedepot)

cdda64b.jpg Clean the dust and from the back and bottom of the fridge. The coils pickup alot of dust over time making the fridge become ineffecent. One some subzero units your condenser coils are on top. Use the brush in conjuction with the vacuum to get it clean and watch your fridge for a hours to see if that helps before you call a repair tech out. Make sure you unplug the fridge when your doing this.

Ice maker overfills with water, drips into ice bin, and auger cannot turn because of ice. Can't find any water regulator.


Don't have this model, but could there be a weight sensor for the ice tray that is stuck and possibly frozen in the up position? The weight sensor would normally sense when there is enough water in the ice tray and then cause the water to shut off. See whether the tray should have up and down vertical movement.

Ice maker


The is a small heater in the boottom of your ice maker that is most likely not working. The heater comes on when the ice reaches a frozen state to allow the ice to melt just enough that the rotating arm can push the cubes out and into the tray.
Unfortunately, it will most likely cost more to have a technician fix the existing ice maker than it would to just have anew one installed.
I would opt for the new ice maker.
