The ticking noise is the icemaker motor. during ice harvest there is a time whne the icemaker motor "stalls" out against the ice before the ice releases into bucket. its during this time the motor is making the noise. this is a sign of motor gear wear. the motor module on the front of your icemaker needs replacing the part number is 8201515 and should run 60-80 dollars. this part is easily replacable. remove front i/m cover and there are 3 phillips screws that hold the module in place.
Hope this answers your question. any furhter questions just leave a comment here and I'll be glad to assist any way I can.. Peyton

Put the icemaker arm in the lock position to turn it off.

The icemaker is pretty simple, there is a motor, a solenoid, and a couple of switches.

It sounds like the whole icemaker mechanism is jammed or has a broken gear, and the motor is trying it's darndest to turn the stuck mechanism (grinding it's gears in the process), or the gear has already gone, and what's left of the gear is dancing around in there.

My guess is either the $7 icemaker drive gear or the $94 icemaker assembly.

Ice maker will not make ice. no ice is being made. no water appears to be in ice cube making area. can hear a ticking noise from icemaker area


Carefully pour water from small glass into ice maker, until the cavity is near filled. Wait a few hours. If it dumps ice, you can usually rule out the ice maker.
If ice maker dumps, then it will be either a bad water valve, Ice building up in fill pipe going into the icemaker, or blocked water line that runs from your water source to the machine.
Caution. If the fill tube going into the ice maker is filled with ice do NOT
use heat such as a hair dryer to melt it. It will melt things you do not want to melt. If it is this problem, you must also replace the water valve because it is leaking slowly causing your problem.
Lastly, in rare cases, the microswitch in the ice maker fails and does not allow water to enter the icemaker.

I have a Kenmore Elite Trio and the freezer was making a frog sound. I found the solution.

My model number is 596.75523400. The sound will stop when the freezer is opened. It will stop again when the freezer drawer is open and the light switch is pressed to turn off the light. The ice drawer was full but it had stopped making ice.

Here is the fix in less than 10 minutes using only a screwdriver.
  • Take out the two freezer baskets
  • Remove the freezer door from the two slide tracks.
  • Unplug the icemaker electric connection at the back wall. Depress the clips on the side of the plug and wiggle it loose.
  • There are 3 screws that attach the icemaker to the left freezer wall. Remove the lower screw and unscrew the top two about ½ way out.
  • Slide the icemaker up so the slots slip over the 2 screws.
  • Put the icemaker in the sink and run a bit of water on the frozen cubes until they fall out.
  • Take the screwdriver and check the water inlet hose/pipe for ice that obstructs the flow of water into the ice maker.
  • Re-mount using the 3 screws and plug in the electric connector. Make certain the water inlet tube is positioned thru the retaining hole before you remount the screws.
  • Replace freezer door and baskets.

Icemaker noises on almost new GE Profile refrigerator


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.

Sears Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Loud humming noise


That sound is usually your icemaker calling for water. you can turn off your icemaker by lifting the little arm on the icemaker. As the icemaker calls for water the valve will be activated and will hum. This sound is usually not very loud. If your valve is making that much noise you may consider replacing the valve. The part number for you water inlet valve is #2315533 The retail price is $60.18 . I do have these on hand and available to ship out today if you need one. Please just let me know. You may also consider replacing your filter if your refrigerator has one. Thanks and I hope this will fixYa

Amana SXD27Q2E side by side fridge....icemaker stopped making ice a couple of days ago. Seems that there is ice in the tray, but maybe it is not freezing hard enough for the ejector blades to push it out?...


There is ice blocking the assy. You need to get in there and clean it out. You WILL find a piece of ice that is blocking the assembly from turning. Happens more often than you think. Be careful when you get the piece out the blades will revolve forcefully once unhindered.
