You can unplug the ice maker inside the freezer,The plug is located just under the ice maker and plugs into the left wall.You will need to remove the ice bucket to get to it and slightly push up on the ice make to get the plug out.

Icemaker rakes not moving, though it is in the cycle and making a lound humm, grinding type sound (similar to when it does its normal ice rake cycle.


Normally, icemakers make very little noise. If it is in the middle of a harvest cycle and will not complete the cycle, remove the icemaker and look to see if an object some how fell into the ice cube mold area, preventing the rake from turning. If there is no obstuction, you will have to buy a replacement icemaker, as there are no replacement parts available. NOTE: Do not leave the icemaker in your freezer in the middle of a cycle for extended periods, as the mold heater would be "on" and adding heat to your freezer section the entire time, causing your refrigerator to work harder than normal, and costing more to run.

Loud noise coming from icemaker...noise decreases when i increase temp and goes away when icemaker shut off. I set the initial temp at 3 degrees, then let it make ice - after about 3 hours it sounded like...


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 in refridgerator freezer won't make ice. It seems as if the water is going up into the freezer but no Ice is being produced. The ice tray has frozen ice in it, but it will not dump it in the ice...


Sometimes icemakers get all frozen up, such that the motor cannot turn to eject the ice. Also, in some cases the water supply line freezes up, although that does not sound like your problem.

Try leaving the freezer open to defrost it manually and see if it starts working by itself. Also, the icemaker motors can and do fail. In some cases you smell an acrid burning smell when the motor fails.

Ice Maker will not release the frozen ice cubes from tray


The icemaker use an avaporator system with an heatinc coil and a fan to release cubes.

In your case either the heating coil or the fan in the icemaker must be replaced.

parts can be purchased from partselect.com.

No water or Ice


chances are your waterlines and motor are frozen, which indicates you may have a leak somewhere, causing ice build-up

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator - grinding noise from icemaker


That would likely be the ice maker "motor module". They are notorious for failing. The plastic gear on the front pulls away from the contact springs from ear tab failure, etc. It's an easy fix to replace the whole module (about $70 bucks). See the diagram here. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Whirlpool/THIERSZO.gif
