Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
All of a sudden the ice maker started to make a grinding noise. The noise stops when the door is open and light on, but once the door is closed or the little button inside the freezer is pressd to indicate the door is closed, the noise starts again. The noise sounds like a creaky door slowly opening. Not sure why it's doing this, but would like to know how to fix it. We took the ice bucket out and made sure everything was lined up. We also adjusted the auger driver and that didn't fix the problem either. The fridge is only 1 1/2 years old. Help! Mine is the Jenn Air JCD2389GES , 3 years old and giving noises when we set the front panel to ice making mode. It is a continous ratle noise in the position of making ice or not ( up or down).Any help to solve this annoyance ? Very similar intermittent vibrating noise from ice maker regardless of whether arm is raised or not, stops when door is opened, continues if light switch is depressed.
Sounds like a noisy ice maker, is it making ice? about $100 for new ice maker. ck warr jeen air might warr parts in that unit for2 years

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

I hear two things here or do I? I'm thinking the motor driver has stripped gears. Empty the ice from the tray so it will demand more. Using the door switch, fool the unit into thinking it is closed. Observe what you can about what is going on. Take appropriate steps to repair. Watch your fingers.
