Keeps on beeping? Every 3 to 4 seconds? Try putting the thermostat wires together. An open bin thermostat will cause this problem and the board see it and starts beeping.

SOURCE: My u line under counter ice maker (bin, not clear

Can you tell me the model? If its a bi series then it should make ice every 45 min. temps should be 10-15 degrees in bucket. If its a combo then it could take 24 hours to make 1/2 of the bucket.Should be the same temp in your bucket.Make sure you dont have heavy frost in the freezer, Make sure the condenser fan is running and clean.If the temperature in freezer is alot warmer than this and everythng is running then it could be a leak in the system. If its colder than that then set the thermostat to a warmer temperature

SOURCE: Our automatic ice maker will

if it keeps filling and overflowing you have a bad water valve on the back of the fridge.the part number is WR57X10027 and the valve is around 75 dollars.first thing lift the arm or shut off the ice maker so it won't leak anymore,you're missing a few letters off of the model number so when you call your parts store give them the full model number,open the fridge door,look up on the right hand side wall up near the ceiling and give them the model number to make sure you get the correct valve,shut off the water supply to the fridge,then have the new valve next to the old valve when you remove a water line from the old valve just connect it to the new valve,do this until everything is changed out and the new valve is in place,turn on the water supply and you can check the ice maker to make sure it doesn't overflow.you can manually start the ice maker by grabbing the plastic arms of the ice maker and pull them forwards slowly until the arms start to advance on their own,you'll hear the water valve fill the ice maker and then you can watch it fill to see if the water is filling it correctly and i'm sure you'll be fine with the new water valve installed

How do I stop the loud knocking noises coming from my refridgerator?


Pull the fridge away from the wall and inspect the compressor. Your description sounds like the compressor is hitting something. It is rubber mounted and usually can be pushed away from whatever it is hitting.You do not want to jamb something to stop the noise, as the compressor needs to move freely. Many compressors shake during start up and shutdown, and this is considered normal. Abnormal if the compressor hits something during this movement.

Periodic loud buzzing noise


Two main possibilities:
1.) If the refrigerator has an ice maker but you are not making ice, the solenoid valve will open every hour or so to allow water to fill the ice maker. That valve wears out and makes more noise as it ages. There is a metal rod/bar that can be lifted up to stop the ice maker from cycling.
-or-
The compressor and the associated starter cap may be failing and it can make odd noises when it starts back up after the defrost cycle. Time for a professional to take a look.

When the ice maker start to rotate there is very loud noise


Dripping sound.
During the defrost, water draining from the freezer section will drip into the pan by your compressor in the back and bottom of your refrigerator.
* Air rushing or blowing.
There is a fan in the freezer section and in some models in the back and bottom of your refrigerator to circulate air. This is a normal sound.
* Louder when starting or coming on.
Compressor operates at a higher pressure when first starting and noise should disappear as refrigerator continues to run and balance pressures.
* Popping, crackling, or sizzling about once a day.
If your model is self-defrosting, the defrost system utilizes a heater to remove the ice and frost from the freezer coil. During this period you will hear some expansion noises as heat is applied to the coil and you may experience some sizzling sounds as the melting water drips on the heater.
* Running water.
If you have an ice maker equipped model, the ice maker will call for water as the old batch of cubes is ejected and the ice maker starts to make more cubes. This will last for about 10 seconds and is normal.
* Vibrating or rattling noises

Buzzing noise every 5 to 10 minutes, like an ice machine turning


No ,very possible it is due to expansion. There is a covering on the return pipe called armour flex. this armourflex stops ice migration inside the walls of the fridge. If it breaks away, the ice expands around the pipe and and pushes on the insulation foam which then cracks and makes those loud noises. Have heard this noise many times on a particular brand of fridge to a point where some customers have dived for the floor thinking they are being shot at. Repairing that problem is a biggish repair and not cheap. You will find if it is the compressor it normally only happens at either start up or switch off (a clattering sound)

Intermittent rattling noise in refrigerator


Do you have an ice maker? That noise could be the ice maker trying unsuccessfully to dump ice, usually caused by a defective heater to loosen the ice cubes prior to dumping them into the container.

Possibly even if your ice maker appears to be functioning normally, it may be attempting to dump ice several times before the ice is actually ejected and if you don't use a lot of ice, you'd never notice it.

Hope this helps.

Buzzing intermittent


It sounds like the ice maker. If you don't have the water hooked up, and the ice sensor bar is in the down position, the ice maker assembly will attempt to make ice continuously.
Solution is easy: raise the ice sensor bar until it clicks in the up position. It will lock in this position, and the ice maker will not cycle anymore.
