Question about Refrigerators
If you can watch the icemaker run through it's cycle, with the door open of course, try and determine where it might be hanging up.
I 'trimmed' part of the replacement kit installed by our Electrolux repair technician where it was hanging up with the motorized parts, about 5 months ago, and it began completing it's full ice-making cycle once again.

sounds like either the dispenser motor is bad or the dispenser yoke is stripped. remove the bucket from the freezer. you will see a u shaped yoke in the rear of the disp area. this should be fairly hard to turn by hand if it turns easily then the motor gears are bad if the yoke slips on the motor shaft then you have a stripped yoke. hope that helps. peyton...

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

Bottom right hand rear of unit has valves which allow water to flow to ice cube trays. Possible cause, dirt in line or valve stuck closed. Disconnect power from unit, hook up a small 12 volt transfomer and force the valve to open and close a few times. Saved a bundle this way myself.

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
You said, your ice maker is making a buzzing or humming noise ice maker isn't making much ice. . fridge is about 2 1/2 years old.
This sounds like a clogged water line or a electrical short !
I would get service rather than take a chance on electrical fire.
Or burn up the circuit in the ice maker.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to advise you.

SOURCE: Icemaker is not making ice
check the fill tube on the ice maker to see if its frozen upo. if it is you are going to need a new solinoid valve due to it leaking thru the valve and freezing up.
