Icemaker noise and malfunction

The icemaker, ven in the "off" position makes this whining noise. It sounds like it's trying to eject the ice (I think) Some of the cubes came out and then the tray was refilled but it still is making that noise every few minutes. I'm not very dependent on the icemaker is there a shutoff switch to end this irritating noise or does it need repair?

    The problem posted sounds similar to what we have. And while we don't use ice that often we'd like to have it still make ice and not disconnect. We tried lifting the ice maker arm to see if the noise would stop and it doesn't. It hums for about 10-15 seconds then you hear a click. It's quite constant - in that we noticed it quite recently. Now that I think about it I havn't heard the noise one hears when a handful of ice cubes falls into the tray. We've had this fridge for about 4 years without issue. It actually may still be on extended warranty. I'll have to check I just dumped out all the ice cubes in order to really know if it is making ice. It's only been 1/2 hour but I see nothing coming out so if anyone has any suggestions to tell us what to check next that would be great.

    Thanks

My icemaker began making a CONSTANT grinding-whining noise, as if trying to dump ice (on Sunday morning at 4am, of course). After repeatedly raising the arm which had no effect on the noise, and before smashing the fridge into oblivion, I accesed FixYa's website. The suggestion to unplug the wire harness was an INSTANT FIX to the annoying sound! Now I can wait in peace and quiet for the repair man to come out next week...

On the back wall just above or under the fill tube youl find the wire harness , simply unplug the ice maker, while your at it 3 1/4 screws mount the ice maker to the side wall, youll have more room in freezer by removing it

What casues the ice maker to make a constant clicking noise?


It thinks that ice has frozen into cubes, and it's trying to eject them. Look into the icemaker and move the sensor wires (stainless) around... you may get it to work right.

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_

If the noise is only heard when you activate the icemaker, then your problem is probably with the icemaker. Some icemakers make more noise than others. If it's unbearable, replace the icemaker.

GE side-by-side: freezer making grinding noise. Husband unplugged and removed icemaker. What was the problem and can I fix it myself?


did it sound like someone snoring in your freezer? that is your icemaker trying to eject cubes, and that noise in and of itself, is nothing to be worried about, that is normal. however, if your icemaker was failing to produce ice, when your husband removed the icemaker, was it near overflowing with ice, or did it look like it just had what would be a normal amount, i.e., the ice in the mold was little more than helfway. if it seemed like it was a normal amount of ice, then the heater on the bottom of the icemaker failed, replace the icemaker. if you had an abundance of ice in the icemaker, you may have a problem with either your water vavle solenoid not closing completely, or the icemaker motor itself is slow, causing the valve to be open too long. without checking it personally, i cant advise either way

A very unusual 'croaking' frog like noise from the back of the freezer compartment. It stops if the freezer door is opened and starts again once closed. The freezer light switch is involved: With the...


I have a Kenmore Elite Trio and the freezer was making a frog sound. I found the solution.

My model number is 596.75523400. The sound will stop when the freezer is opened. It will stop again when the freezer drawer is open and the light switch is pressed to turn off the light. The ice drawer was full but it had stopped making ice.

Here is the fix in less than 10 minutes using only a screwdriver.
  • Take out the two freezer baskets
  • Remove the freezer door from the two slide tracks.
  • Unplug the icemaker electric connection at the back wall. Depress the clips on the side of the plug and wiggle it loose.
  • There are 3 screws that attach the icemaker to the left freezer wall. Remove the lower screw and unscrew the top two about ½ way out.
  • Slide the icemaker up so the slots slip over the 2 screws.
  • Put the icemaker in the sink and run a bit of water on the frozen cubes until they fall out.
  • Take the screwdriver and check the water inlet hose/pipe for ice that obstructs the flow of water into the ice maker.
  • Re-mount using the 3 screws and plug in the electric connector. Make certain the water inlet tube is positioned thru the retaining hole before you remount the screws.
  • Replace freezer door and baskets.

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

Frozen ejector arm


sounds more like the heater in the ice maker is bad. The cycles of the ice maker are: 1. water comes in to fill ice maker. 2. water freezes in ice maker making. 3. heater comes on to help ice release. 4. motor comes on to eject the ice and start all over again. if the heater doesn't come on the ice will not eject. replacing the icemaker is typically what needs to be done in this case.
