Thanks for using FixYa. To start with check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve. If still the issue is not resolved then remove the ice bin, Remove the wires from the auger motor. With the freezer door open and the door switch depressed, push the ice cube release and check for 120VAC between the motor wires. If there is 120VAC then the motor has gone bad. If there is no 120VAC then the control board (module time delay) has to be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Is there any permanent solution to cure for snoring?

As we all know your snoring can make you feel embarrassed and it can lead to annoyance to others who are trying to sleep around you. If you think that remedying snoring is a tough task, you are wrong! Definitely there is a permanent cure and treatments are available for snoring.

But first thing you need to find out the reason of snoring that is very much important. Even most of the snoring instances emanate from breathing troubles, snoring cures may be similar. Sometimes, natural remedies for snoring are recommended.

However, chronic snoring can be treated with the aid of anti snore devices. Snore stop devices play a significant role in reducing and preventing the instances of chronic snoring. I would like to prefer a anti-snoring devices called Asonor

My son snores really loudly. He sleeps with his mouth open. Is this what's causing the snoring? Would it help if he closed his mouth?

Snoring with your mouth open is the most common way that people snore. It's usually indicative of a problem with the tissues in the throat (ie maybe too loose and therefore causing a blockage in the airways).

You can't make somebody close their mouth when they are sleeping especially if their breathing feels restricted, which is why they are opening their mouth.

I have bad allergies and I think it's making me snore. My wife is getting so cross with me. Any suggestions?

Allergies can really cause congestion which then leads to snoring as blocked airways cause vibrations of throat tissue and that's what makes the snoring noise.

Trying using anti congest ants and / or nasal sprays for a few days. But you shouldn't use these medications for long as sometimes they can actually make the problem worse, so make sure you follow your doctor's instructions.

How does snoring a lot at night affect you in the daytime?

Some people snore at night but still wake up in the morning feeling like they slept well. But for some people heavy snoring leads to side effects such as;

1. waking up feeling exhausted the next day

2. difficulty concentrating

3. increased risk of high blood pressure, stroke etc

Snoring can also seriously impact on a partner's sleep as the noise can often stop the person sharing the bed from being able to sleep well.

What makes your body snore? I mean, how does your mouth produce the loud noise of snoring?

When you go from a light sleep into a deep sleep, the
muscles in the roof of your mouth, tongue and throat relax. Sometimes the tissues in your throat relax so
much that they partially block the airways and this causes a vibration which is
what the snoring noise is. The more blocked your airways, the louder the
snoring will be.

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

Ice maker jamming up...

I had a similar problem. I cured mine when I increased the water pressure to the ice maker. I had been using the output of my reverse osmosis unit to provide water and the pressure was too low. I added air to the bladder of the water storage tank to the max allowed by the RO manufacturer. I rarely have a problem any more.
Hope this helps,
