Hi Marcel,
Thank you for contacting fixya.

Our ice maker recently had its water inlet freeze up, preventing water from filling the trays. The mechanism kept dutifully trying to push nonexistent ice cubes into a bin that never filled up, which might account for the knocking noise in your case.
To defrost it we just unplugged the unit, took all the food out of the freezer section, and left the door open for a couple of hours. It wasn't long enough for any of the frozen food to defrost, and since we were careful to minimize opening the refrigerator section's door, the food in that part stayed cold enough to be safe as well.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Ice Maker not working

I have a Frigidaire side by side refrigerator freezer MRS20WRGW0. I had the thermostat-defrost replaced yesterday. Now the ice maker isn't working, doesn't have water in the "tray" part that makes ice, but does still dispense water through the door. What could be causing this problem?

most likely you need a new ice maker,one thing that could do this is the white arms that spin around when dumping the ice,sometimes one of the arms bend and jam the ice maker and you'll hear that knocking soundthe arm gets bent,the ice cube gets stuck because the arm can't push it out,,it stops the motor from spinning through it's full cycle and damages it but this is just a guess from something i've seen happen but most likely you need a new ice maker,one other i've seen is the metal arm that you can lift up to shut off the ice maker gets knocked out of the hole it slides into.if you pop off the white cover and get a jumper wire and stick it into the h and t holes you can jump start the ice maker.http://appliantology.org/gallery/image/659-manual-harvest-on-a-whirlpool-modular-ice-maker/

My ice maker does not eject ice when frozen. Make


Good day,
Unplug refrigerator.
Snap off front cover of the ice maker. You will see a large white gear.
If the plastic gear has a screw in the center, then you can remove the gear and inspect for broken teeth. The gear is easily replaced thru any appliance parts house.
If there is no screw then the ice maker uses a semi-solid circuit board and must be replaced.

Humming noise comming from around the ice maker


If you had your water cut off to the ice maker and didn't have the ice maker turned off, it was your ice maker. You turn it off by lifting the wire arm and leaving it in the up position.

Groaning frig


BFULLAWAY had the answer, I believe. My ice maker does the same thing, groaning and creaking for a few seconds, stopping briefly, then starts creaking again. This is due to ice stuck inside and it will make no ice as a result. Usually I see a piece of ice protruding and knock it out. Happened recently, but I saw no ice. Took a cup of hot tap water (not boiling) and poured it into the compartments where cubes form. (Made sure ice tray was in place to catch water.) I banged on the side and a misshapened cube fell out. Creaking/groaning stopped and unit began to function normally.
