Icemaker noises on almost new GE Profile refrigerator

The icemaker on my 8 month old GE Profile makes a strange clicking noise lasting about 10-15 minutes every 2-3 hours (maybe each time it cycles?) We have checked everything we can see - there are no stuck cubes, etc...What to do?

    I have the exact problem on a side by side new Electrolux Refrigerator. They have replaced the total ice-maker 2 times and each new ice maker does the very same thing. Looks like Lowe's will be taking this one back!

I have not heard of this issue but if it is coming from the icemaker, then it will have to be replaced. You are still under warranty so call to have them replace it now, otherwise the new icemaker will cost you about $125.

Model #rb215lash

I know nothing about your model, but in my experience with refrigerators over the last 40 years, they can make a whole range of different noises at different times. There's even a note in the manual of my GE side by side something to the effect that strange noises are to be expected. I'm amazed at the range of different sounds that comes from our 10 year old GE. It's hard to say ignore noises because I never ignore a new noise from my car, but unless the same noise repeats under similar conditions, I'd not rush into trying to 'fix; it.

Water Dispenser Making Noise

Usually this means you forgot to turn the water on, once water is in the valve it should quiet down

Refrigerator knocking noise

If it seems to be coming from underneath the unit it could be the compressor. 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";} That's usually mounts inside the compressor. Usually when the compressor cuts off. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.
Any other noise would be from a fan. One in the freezer behind the back panel and one under the unit where the compressor is.

Groaning noise on GE side by side refrigerator

Usually the groaning noise is from a locked up icemaker. Remove the icemaker and defrost it with hot water. Check to make sure the unit is in good shape and not chipping. Let it dry out and then reinstall.

New GE profile bottom freezer fridge intermittent buzzing

If the buzzing is a short (say 5 seconds) every once in a while, it sounds like the water is valve being energized. That would mean the icemaker is turned on and is cycling. Besides the noise, when it cycles it turns on the mold heater, which you do not need if not making ice, and thus is actually adding heat to your freezer, increasing operating cost. Just turn the icemaker off by flipping the toggle switch on the icemaker itself. It is a white switch near the bottom corner of the icemaker. Should be easy to spot.
