Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Refrigerator is making a loid noise

The refrigrator is a Kenmore side by side with icemaker, I am not sure of the model or the age as came with the house when I bought it one year ago. The noise is not constant but starts and continues for a couple of hours at a time. This happens 2 to 3 times a day. The noise is incredibly loud and sounds just like an airplane propeller. The unit seems to be working fine except for some icemaker problems such as occasional leaking water, and freezing up directly under the icemaker and above the ice storage bin. Are these problems related? Or is the noise my compressor?

** the y do sound directly related. water is dripping down your ice maker falling on to bucket? well a small amount of water is also falling onto the evaporator fan assy, freezing and the **ise you hear is that fan blade "cutting" through the ice.you can lift the arm turning the Ice maker to the off position, itll stop calling for water,and your **ise should stop as well

Replace icmaker on kenmore


Unplug refrigerator. Take a moment to examine how the icemaker is positioned in the freezer compartment prior to proceeding (e.g.: water inlet tubing coming into the icemaker, etc.). Remove or loosen (where applicalble) screws holding icemaker. Unplug icemaker's wire harness connection. install new icemaker by reversing the screws harness, etc. Make certain that the new icemaker is in the "on" position. Plug the refrigerator in. Allow approximately 6 to 8 hours (some models take fewer or longer timeframe) for ice production.

I have a kenmore side by side and the icemaker makes a ticking noise that last about thirty seconds and stops. It happens maybe once an hour. How do we stop the ticking ?


the ticking noise is the icemaker motor. during ice harvest there is a time whne the icemaker motor "stalls" out against the ice before the ice releases into bucket. its during this time the motor is making the noise. this is a sign of motor gear wear. the motor module on the front of your icemaker needs replacing the part number is 8201515 and should run 60-80 dollars. this part is easily replacable. remove front i/m cover and there are 3 phillips screws that hold the module in place.
Hope this answers your question. any furhter questions just leave a comment here and I'll be glad to assist any way I can.. Peyton

Kenmore Icemaker


check inside the ice maker are the forks pointing up or down if they are down them the module on front of ice maker is broken it needs to be repl, but you said is 8 years ol d so i would repl the whole ice maker since the mold might be peeling off due to age they only last like 4 years or so
