Clicking sound coming from the icemaker

There is a clicking sound coming from the ice maker. I took off the panel and underneath is basically a wheel that turns in one spot and clicks. The wheel says do not rotate manually. The ice maker is making ice.

Hi friend, thanks for your post!
I understand that your icemaker on your Frigidaire refrigerator is not getting water to the icemaker. It sounds like you could have an issue within the valve or solenoid. I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose your appliance and repair it. -Matt

Subzero 690 ss icemaker making a clicking sound why

If the noise is coming from the ice maker head itself. Then it sounds like the gear is slipping. They are plastic and it is very common for them to crack or break. Most ice makers are the same. Click Here to see a post on a Whirlpool ice maker with a broken gear.

It sounds like you have a bad icemaker. Usually when the arm is clicking its the gears that are stripped out. Feel in the icemaker if theres cubes frozen in there then you know the icemaker is definitely bad. With the arm in the up position it will not make cubes at all that is the off position for the icemaker. Hope this helps _MJ_

Ice maker doesn't work. Makes a clicking sound,

Ice makers in refrigerators are one of those things that fall into the category of, "use it or lose it". The clicking might be the solenoid trying to open. the valve might be clogged or bad. It could also be the auger motor turning but the shaft might be broken or somehow disengaged.
I'm not a fan of refrigerator ice machines and never recommend getting one as an option because they are junk. Once they break you can't simply remove them because all refrigerator functions run through them. Home ice machines are cheap and work forever and they have nothing at all to do with the fridge. Those I like!

Samsung rf267aars icemaker stops making ice, icemaker makes clicking noise.

unfortunately it sounds like you have a broken tooth on the drive or driven gear of the ice maker, in this case you should replace the ice maker. The good news is that you can get a new one for about 85 bucks at your local appliance parts store.

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
