Is you unit hooked up to water because if your unit has an ice maker and not hooked up to water currently, the ice maker will call for water about every 45 mins and cause this noise. To stop this action, lift the bail arm to the off position to avoid or stop this from occurring. I hope this helps.
That might be the fan. Making that noise, because fan stops when you open the freezer. The ice maker might be a totally diffrent problem. The solenoid may not be opening to let the water in, which is usually cause by a bad solenoid.
The flow of water is controlled by a solenoid. Thus magnetic -- rather electromagnet which mones the vale from open & close, both in the ice-maker & the water dispenser. Thus the valve which is activated when door closes, must have lost its earlier condition and must be making an irritable buzz whenever its on. Simply get the Valve assembly replaced, preferably from their authorized service center closest to your place of residence.
I have a Kenmore Elite Trio and the freezer was making a
frog sound. I found the solution.
My model number is 596.75523400.The sound will stop when the freezer is
opened.It will stop again when the
freezer drawer is open and the light switch is pressed to turn off the
light.The ice drawer was full but it
had stopped making ice.
Here is the fix in less than 10 minutes using only a
out the two freezer baskets
the freezer door from the two slide tracks.
the icemaker electric connection at the back wall.Depress the clips on the side of the
plug and wiggle it loose.
are 3 screws that attach the icemaker to the left freezer wall.Remove the lower screw and unscrew the
top two about ½ way out.
the icemaker up so the slots slip over the 2 screws.
the icemaker in the sink and run a bit of water on the frozen cubes until
they fall out.
the screwdriver and check the water inlet hose/pipe for ice that obstructs
the flow of water into the ice maker.
using the 3 screws and plug in the electric connector. Make certain the water inlet tube is
positioned thru the retaining hole before you remount the screws.
The light is switched on and off by a small lever which is pushed when closing or opening the door. This operates a microswitch. It would not make any grinding noise. Grinding noise can come from the fanmotor which would also stop when the fridge door is open.
I am not expert but this exact same thing happened to me - same model of fridge. The line which brings water in is frozen. I don't know how to solve it permanently, but if you take out the two produce drawers you can see where the water comes through. Put a hair dryer blowing on it for a few minutes and it will get it going again.
After several hours working and moving the door, I was able to slide open the door. Found out that the ice maker was leaking and the water was in the bottom an it frozen and that was stopping the door to open.
I found I get a odd clicking noise whenever the icecubes freeze inside of the box in the top left. You'll see about 20 little fingers, arms, or whatever you want to call them that spit out the ice into the container...make sure those fingers/arms arent stuck from the ice.
