Homeland Security smart appliance .... ??jkThis a very educated guess but I think it is one of these three things.
1. The appliance is not grounded properly either the prong on the plug is damaged or looks good but is not good OR the plug where it is plugged is not grounded well... so what is happening is the refrigerator is finding and alternate quicker ground and electricity does.. which would the water going into your ice maker... the breaker box is also generally grounded to your plumbing as well.. so that sound is caused by the "stretch" having to get power at one distance but to alternate the current as in any 130 60 htz home it has it go further to get the ground (to harness usable power). So the plug and the plug in.
2.The breaker itself might have and excessive load and is at verge of "breaking" or it might be weak or bad breaker. Try and eliminate all possible power drawing devices on that breaker.. if that stop the ticking then plug some things in on other circuits to give ample power to the fridge. One thing to know is that anytime and appliance is operating in "low voltage" situation they fail prematurely... so make sure you got enough power.
3.Lastly this sound could be caused by what is called an "uneven breaker panel"... What that means is ..the power coming into a home is generally a :"2 pole:" 220 volt...Meaning you have a Neutral wire White, and 2 completely separate 130 volt (black wires) which share that neutral wire (ground from the power company) as the current alternates ..AC mean "alternating current". What happens because of the size and placement of items that draw power...sometimes inadvertantly one of the 130 volt legs is providing for example 90% of the power while the other only 10%. This cause great friction as the negative electrons are pulled much harder by one side than the other ..and makes that kind of noise. Fix it you need figure out how much actual each breaker is using on an average and rearrange them to get them at roughly 50% each.
I'm very sure that one of things will fix your problem. Good luck to you..and be careful around electricity....ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS ACTING AND SOUNDING STRANGE!!
