Kenmore refrigerator making high pitch noise top front


could be the ice maker or the evaporator fan motor.you can try lifting the arm up on the ice maker and see if it stops,this will shut off the ice maker.also when you open the freezer door to lift the arm on the ice maker the evap fan motor should start when you open the door,you should hear it blowing around,is this the noise you hear?these are the two things i can think of that could make a noise up top,if not it could be the compressor or the condenser fan motor but these are down the bottom back of machine but still could be the problem,if the ice maker and evap fan motor both in the freezer are ok pull out the machine and remove the bottom back panel and check to see if the noise is coming from there where the condenser fan motor and compressor are,you're going to have to do some detective work to find the noise,hope this helps you out.

I have a Kenmore Elite side-by-sr ide refrigerator Model 106. The ice making system is putting too much water in the ice tray, making the cubes too big. These large cubes are clogging up the dispenser. ...


With out the full model number it is hard to say. Most 106 model referigators have a modular ice maker. If you take the cover off of the front of the ice maker and look on the right hand side of the motor module you will notice a small plastic adjustment screw. If you turn this screw you can adjust your water fill time to the ice maker.

Ice maker will not shut off when ben is full


I don't know what model GE you have some have electronic ice makers and they will do strange things. But the water control valve on the rear of your refrigerator is told to open for about 7.5 seconds on most. There are two sides to the valve one for ice maker and the other for the water dispenser and the other for ice maker. If when off the water still comes to ice maker then the valve has a possible bad seat to stop the water flow. About the only thing you could do is replace the complete valve. that comes as a set. A water filter befroe valve is a good idea too because it make the water and ice better and prevents particles from damaging the seal inside the dual water control valve. Hop that help answer your question, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Strange noise when doors are closed


Is it the Kenmore French Door model made by by LG?  I have the similar LG refrigerator since 2/2007 and have had several problems with it.  The sound you hear may be  a fan motor that is failing or freezing up.  The noise will stop when you open the doors because that shuts off the fan motors. In the last two years I have had the refrigerator fan, the air channel duct, the mother board, the ice maker fan, the ice maker duct and the mother board (again) replaced (under warranty, fortunately).  After the first service call I installed a power surge protector since a component on the mother board was fried.  I think the second mother board replacement was due to a software change related to the ice maker issue.  There is also a case related to LG Energy Star ratings (that includes the Kenmore made by LG) that you can register for that is supposed to make free modifications and an ongoing rebate payment for as long as you own the refrigerator.  I found an LG service manual PDF on line (search by model number) that has diagnostic codes and test procedures that is very helpful when I need to troubleshoot and communicate with the repair shop.

Ice maker makes ice, but also drips water


cbscarter,
This may sound strange but you will find that the mold coating is peeling off of the aluminum mold. This causes the water to wick (climb) the loose coating and up over the top, leaking out making an ice clump on the ice maker and clumps ice in the container together. It would be easy enough for the average person to replace the ice make. Due to its age that would be smarter to replace than to repair the old one. It is a Whirlpool part #4317943 and comes with some instructions.

If this helped please rate me good, supertechks
