Ice dispenser solenoid continually clicks


If the ice maker is working ok and you can live with the noise leave it alone. Eventually the solenoid will fail.

Don't worry though it's an easy fix. You'll need to replace both the ice maker and the water dispenser solenoids. They're located behind the hardboard cover on the lower right side (looking at the back of the refrigerator), where the water comes in.

Parts are under $50 and the job should easily take less than 1 hour.

GE Side by Side Refrig - loud noise behind the ice maker section Model PSS25SGMB BS


it sounds like the evaporator fan blade is hitting some ice that has built up around the blades i have seen this happen a lot on g.e. SxS lately,if you can remove the ice maker and dispenser you can see the fan blade,if you dont want to do this then shut down the refrigerator and leave freezer door open and heat it carefully with a hairdrier to speed the process up to melt this ice then restart it and the noise should be gone

Clicking noise in freezer I am assuming to try to make ice, no ice being made?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Ice makers can stop ice production due to poor air flow though the evaporator coils or through the failure of the ice maker module. If your certain the clicking noise your hearing is from the ice maker itself here is are some steps that you can use to troubleshoot the ice maker:
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34

This step from the above link is important:

TEST PROCEDURESIce Maker Plugged In To PowerShut-Off Arm Down-Freezer Cold
Test points L & N will verify 120 volts to Ice Maker module.(Make sure your test probes go into the test points 1/2".)
Test points T & H will verify if the bimetal thermostat is open or closed.
Short T & H with an insulated piece of wire ( 14 gauge) to run the motor. If the motor doesn't run, replace the module assembly. If you leave the jumper in for a half of a revolution, you can feel the heater in the mold heat up..if it's good.
Remove the jumper and the water valve will be energized in the last half of the revolution.

Once you insert the jumper between T & H touch the bottom of the ice maker and check for any signs of heat within the first minute. No heat = bad mold heater. It can 3 - 4 minutes for the sweep arm to harvest the ice.

Stick your finger back in the ice maker fill tube area in the plastic rectangular funnel area and check for ice build up. If the funnel is blocked with ice also pinch the ice maker fill tube for an ice block.
Should you notice ice in the funnel and the fill tube most likely the inlet water valve is bypassing water into the ice maker causing an over fill and ice build up condition. The remedy here is to replace the inlet water valve. They are NOT repairable. (Most of the time if the inlet water valve is bad your ice cubes will be fused into an ice block in the ice bin.) Also... if the ice maker fill tube is frozen full of ice... it can take up to 30 minutes using a hair drier to melt the ice as the insulation in the back of the freezer compartment keeps the ice maker fill tube from warming up enough to melt the ice in a timely fashion.

If you discover that the ice maker has over filled you can use a hand held hair drier and melt the ice in the ice maker.

If the ice maker seems to work fine then the freezer may be above 18 deg F. This is usually caused by ice build up on the evaporator coils as a result of either a defrost circuit problem or a slow running evaporator fan.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

It is making a strange sound, a whine for about 5-10 seconds and then a click. It does this about every 1/2 hour.


do you have ice maker hooked up? ice maker is calling for water. but since you dont have it hooked up it cycles every half hour.

Kenmore 795-75202400 icemaker problem.


Good day,
Either the water valve opens to fill the ice maker cavity, and doesn't shut off soon enough, causing the ice maker to overflow.
Normal file time is approx. 7 seconds.
This is the most common problem.
As well, it is possible the micro switch in the ice-maker that tells the valve to open and close has malfunctioned.
This is all based on the fact that the freezer maintains a normal temperature.
To test the freezer for consistency, place a plastic glass in the freezer half full of water.
Check it in 8 hours. It should be frozen solid. Then place the glass in a plastic bowl, and lay the glass on it's side. Recheck in 24 hours. The ice should remain in the glass.
If not, there is a problem with the refrigeration system.

In door water and ice cube not working


Water dispenser is a simple touch switch in door energizing a solenoid water valve behind ventilation grate above refrigerator. Water tube runs down into and ends at ice dispenser chute. Should hear solenoid click at top of fridge when activate water touch switch. Can unhook discharge side of solenoid valve temporarily to prove water output. If water dispenser tube acts blocked it could be frozen where it ends-look up the hole at the bottom of refrigerator control buttons.
Ice maker is totally different system. No clicking when push ice button but ice in bulk tray may mean the simplest of malfunctions: Ice bin not pushed in the last half inch if ice auger not lined up with drive pegs. There are hidden switches behind ice bin that need to be engaged or nothing will happen in the ice maker: no auger noise, no clicking, no new ice making. Ice bin will be flush with sheet metal if it is in the right spot. Also plastic juice rack won't hang properly if ice bin not pushed in all the way.

Frigidaire side-by-side model # FRS26H5ASB4 making humming or buzzing noise


I had the same problem. I found the buzzing noise was caused by ice build up around the fan motor inside the freezer. I believe water must have leaked down around the fan during a defrost cycle. I removed the ice maker, the ice cube bin and ice dispenser auger motor. It sounds complicated, but it isn't too bad. The ice maker and auger are connected with quick connect plugs. So just unplug, remove the screws and remove them from the freezer. You will need to remove several other screws as well, I believe 11 in total as well as the top freezer rack. This will give you access to the white aluminum panel that runs from the top of the freezer to about halfway down the back of the freezer. After you remove the aluminum panel you will see the fan about half way down the freezer. I found a lot of ice around my fan. The fan blades were hitting the ice causing the buzz. Remove the ice and the buzzing is gone. It took me an hour to complete this repair. I hope this helps.

It is probably just your water inlet solenoid being activated. Not to be concerned.
