If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

SOURCE: every 20 mins or so the fride--a11 yr old

is it shutting off when it makes that clunking noise? if so, thats the compressor making the noise. the motor inside the shell casing, which is suspended on four springs, is banging agasint the shell casing because one of those springs has stretched or broken. You need to replace compressor. if its been happening for a while, i would start looking for a new model. if its more recent, and not very loud, you haver more time, but in either case, it could just cease up at any time. to hgave your compressor replaced, and unless your an HVAC tech you should most assuredly NOT do it yourself, its quite expensive, at or near the cost of buying a new one.

SOURCE: Frigidaire fridge door makes a loud popping sound

You need to take the door off the hinges and remove the lower hinge plate from the bottom of the door. This is where I found my popping problem. The black bushing with the 3 bumps and dips on it is loose in the plate going into the door. I took black eletrical tape and rapped it around the part that goes into the plate to tighten the bushing up so it wouldn't turn anymore. ( This was a temp fix to see if the popping would go away) 3 Weeks later and still working. If the sound comes back I will put some double sided sticky back foam on it. Both doors were doing this on my fridge, and now its as quite as a mouse. I hope this fix works for you.

My whirlpool fridge starting make a loud noise on and off


You could have a ice block fan, take all your food out and keep it cold, then unplug the unit with doors open and let it defrosts 3-4 hours if this solves the issue you should do this process once every 2 months. If not is time for special service

My fridge/freezer is having problems dispensing cold water. It works well when the fridge door is open, but struggles and makes load banging noises when the door is closed.


That would be a clear sign that the tubing is folding when the door is shut. When the door is opened you should also not be able to use the dispenser functions without pressing the light switch in. I believe on yours the water line comes in the left hand door at bottom near the hinge. Can you find the model number so I can try to provide a visual presentation? Look around the fresh food door and near floor for the model number of your Whirlpool. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Fridg is not working right


The fresh food compartment is cooled by air being blown from the freezer compartment into the fresh food compartment. Something is restricting that air flow which causes your fresh food compartment to stay warm.

There is a panel, or door if you will, that separates the freezer and fresh food compartments. The freezer temp control determines how much cold air is allowed to escape into the fresh food compartment by opening or closing this panel.

If the panel is restricted from moving (stuck closed, for example), the freezer will get VERY cold while the fresh food compartment will be warm.

Try thoroughly defrosting the refrigerator. Possibly an accumulation of ice is preventing the panel from moving and/or is restricting air flow from the freezer to the fresh food compartment. It's a free fix and may solve your problem altogether.

If that doesn't help, or helps only temporarily, you may have a problem with panel itself or the linkage that connects it to the control mechanism. Unless you're skilled in appliance repair, checking and repairing these components will require the help of a service technician

Hope this was helpful. Good Luck.
