If it hums every few hours, then it is calling for water but isnt getting water. It could be a couple things. First check the fill tube that goes from the back of the unit into the ice maker. sometimes this tube ices up and cater cannot get to ice maker. if its froze up, take it out and run hot water through it and put it back in. If thats not it, chances are the solenoid on the water valve is bad, and you need to replace the water valve.

It does sound as if you may need a new ice maker. Other than that does the compressor come on to keep the ice cold? If so is it making any type of noises beyond the typical hum?

No water to the ice maker


Check that the pipe that fills the ice maker is not iced up. Also check that the solenoid on the back (where the waterline hooks up) is making a humming noise when the ice maker calls for water.

Humming noise comming from around the ice maker


If you had your water cut off to the ice maker and didn't have the ice maker turned off, it was your ice maker. You turn it off by lifting the wire arm and leaving it in the up position.

My whirlpool aide by side fridge icemaker is making buzzing or humming noise


Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


You said, your ice maker is making a buzzing or humming noise ice maker isn't making much ice. . fridge is about 2 1/2 years old.

This sounds like a clogged water line or a electrical short !
I would get service rather than take a chance on electrical fire.
Or burn up the circuit in the ice maker.


Thank you for giving us the opportunity to advise you.

MOTOR DRIVE DOES NOT TURN


Dear Dannyvk,

I am having exactly the same problem with my rival 8200 ice cream maker. It worked once and stopped usual, when I first used it. The ice cream was wonderful.

However, when I started to make a second batch, the ice cream maker just hummed after I plugged it in. No movement of the pin/hub whatsoever. I tried to move it, by placing the steel can on top and moving it side by side. I plugged it in again, and experienced the same old humming sound.

Is it a fuse? Is the motor blown? Is this something that a small appliance dealer can repair at a reasonable cost? Can anyone help? I am so disappointed!

Faithful in Christ,
D.
