Question about Jenn-Air JCD2389G Side by Side Refrigerator
All of a sudden the ice maker started to make a grinding noise. The noise stops when the door is open and light on, but once the door is closed or the little button inside the freezer is pressd to indicate the door is closed, the noise starts again. The noise sounds like a creaky door slowly opening. Not sure why it's doing this, but would like to know how to fix it. We took the ice bucket out and made sure everything was lined up. We also adjusted the auger driver and that didn't fix the problem either. The fridge is only 1 1/2 years old. Help! Mine is the Jenn Air JCD2389GES , 3 years old and giving noises when we set the front panel to ice making mode. It is a continous ratle noise in the position of making ice or not ( up or down).Any help to solve this annoyance ?
I was able to solve this problem by doing the following:
1) Carefully (because there may be sharp metal blades in this area) reached into the upper left compartment of the icemaker and pressed down on ice cubes that seemed to be lodged there and were protruding slightly above the slots they should have been passing through.
2) Press down on the cubes, forcing them through the slots and into the cube container below
3) Lift the metal arm, remove and completely empty the ice cube container
4) Return the ice cube container to the freezer, making sure it is seated properly
Close the freezer and wait until the ice cube maker begins to make new ice cubes. The sound should stop in around 10-15minutes.

I hear two things here or do I? I'm thinking the motor driver has stripped gears. Empty the ice from the tray so it will demand more. Using the door switch, fool the unit into thinking it is closed. Observe what you can about what is going on. Take appropriate steps to repair. Watch your fingers.

SOURCE: Ice Maker Making Noise
sounds like your icemaker is jammed.
first ofall just feel around the icemaker and see if you can find a peice of ice jamming it that you can remove. if that doesnt work heat it up with a blow dryer until any ice that is there will melt away and it will free up..
there is one other possibility: the stripper could be jammed against the side of the icemaker in which case you'll have to remove the icemaker from the refrig and unjam it..
hope that helps and good luck
