Watre dispenser makes squealing noise

Our refrigerator is 1 year old and about 6 months ago it started to make a slightly louder noise at is dispensed water. Now it is a high shrill squeal. I have looked at the lines to check for a kink or blockage, but didn't get any insight.

Re: watre dispenser makes squealing noise

You may have to remove the line from the ice maker solenoid and check to see if it has a screen. If it does you may have to clean it. You will find the solenoid at the bottom in the back. Just follow the water line as it comes into the refer. at the bottom. It should be attached to the valve. Sometimes there is a copper line that has a female connector that screws into the valve. It is sometimes the size of a regular garden hose. Whether it is or isn't if it is removable remove it and check for a screen. If there is one clean it. If there is not you may have to replace the valve to get rid of the noise as sometimes the solenoids get weak or swell and they won't open up all the way.

Good Luck!
God Bless

The water dispenser is not putting out water and ice maker is not making ice. The fridge frequently cycles like it is trying to send out water.

it's still under warranty for up to 1 year,call whoever you bought it from and it should be repaired free of charge and next time you write send model number.

Frigidaire side by side refrigerator model # LFUS2613LPO quit making ice or dispensing watr

Change the water filter and then purge the water into glasses or buckets for about a total of 3 minutes, then you should be fine. Otherwise, if you have problems after completing that, then you have a blockage or restriction in the water valve.

1 year old Kenmore Elite Trio Refridgerator not cooling

There are a lot of things that could be the source of the problem... is there no cooling at all going on in the freezer? Is the back wall of the freezer cold? It could be anything from a fan, to the compressor, to the control board... you need a technician.

I would get on the phone with Sears, and explain the continuing problems you have been having, and they may agree to cover service.
