    for several months the ticking has increased to almost a knocking when the fridge is operating normally, and when water is run off it jerks on and off so severely it sounds like something will fall off at the rear. also the fridge and freezer stopped working for a few days and i turned it off for a couple of hours and it fixed itself after a day or so

  • jonojohns Apr 12, 2008

    wrong. read my description again.as the fridge turns on and off in its normal operation it sets up a terrible knocking in the water pipes and it gets worse when the water dispenser is operating.

    no humming, just a ticking that now borders on a knocking

Bad wiring or faulty sensor would cause the relay to be activated and tell the solonoid to open whenever it likes. I would replace the door switch or see if it is sticking otherwise you may be looking at control board problems

My s21s4d fridge ice maker doesnt work, everything else is ok. the motor on the ice m/c doesnt seem to reset itself. how do i fix it.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This appears to be a Whirlpool side by side unit. Commercial Code 858618353010 / Model S21S4D. If I got the brand incorrect please respond with your brand name.
I do not know your geographic location. I am assuming you are outside of the US.

There are a couple of troubleshooting links I will post here. Keep in mind that they are for US units but the only difference will be the operating voltage:
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34 This is for the BASIC ice maker without optics.

And Job Aid R-92 (With optics)
http://adcxns1.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/8527f904cc8ea8cd85256b5800672333/$FILE/4322658A.pdf
Note there are 2 different optics for these. Pre and post 2002. You will have to determine which one you have. The troubleshooting steps require that you TAPE the door / light switch in the depressed position. Ensure you read all of the set up steps.

Often ice makers stop cycling because the ice maker thermostat never reaches 14 - 16 Deg. F due to a problem with automatic defrosting. Ice builds up on the evaporator coils and air-flow in the freezer gets restricted. It will still freeze but won't make ice until the ice build up is excessive.

If you think you may have an automatic defrosting problem do a MANUAL defrost with an external fan by turning the unit off, removing the freezer contents and directing an external fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. (water mess so be ready)
While the fan is melting the ice in the freezer compartment... open the lower rear of the unit by removing the fiberboard cover and cleaning the condenser coils, condenser fan, the drip pan and the ver end of the compartment drain tube that terminates in the drip pan. Reinstall rear cover when complete.
After the 2 hours clean up the mess and return the unit to normal service. The unit should start making ice within 8 hours. It will operate normally for 2 days and then if the automatic defrost problem exists... ICEMAKER and freezer performance will degrade after 2 - 3 days.

Hopefully you have enough information now to troubleshoot your icemaker issue.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Whirlpool S21S4D Ice maker stopped working Now fridge stopped working Frezer OK Defrosted ice on condenser and fridge working for time being! Do you think its the mother board?


You have a defrost problem going on. Either the defrost timer, the defrost t-stat or the defrost heater. Remove the back freezer wall and you will see the evaporator coils. This is where the heater and t-stat are located. One of these is more than likely the problem.

Whirlpool side/side. 3yrs old from Lowes. Something electrical tries to come on about every 30 seconds - 1 min. Hums for about 10 - 15 seconds and then stops. Freezer started not keeping everything frozen...


There is a relay overload on the compressor that makes a noise similar to what you are describing when the compressor does not start. Sometimes the electrical parts can be replaced, the rest the compressor is bad and needs replacement.

The other less likely possibility is that the ice maker is not hooked up, the arm got put down and the ice maker is cycling causing its heating element to run and the noise from the water valve.

If you pull off the back panel behind unit you should get some idea where noise is coming from

I own a Whirlpool model WBM35LW refigerator, a buzzing noise lasts for about 10 seconds followed by a click. I replaced the start relay and overload but the buzzing continues, all seems normal including...


This is usually a sound coming from the ice maker solenoid. It will buzz while it is energized and letting water fill the tray up and then you will usually hear a clicking sound when it is cutoff and the water is stopped. Sometimes if the water line on the back of the unit is not secured properly you will hear various sounds as the water is suddenly stopped and the line moves around, like a garden hose does.

Intermittent flapping noise whirlpool fridge freezer


Hi: Go easy on my rating as this is just something to try. You say it dosn't have a dispenser. Does it have an Ice maker? If so is it hooked up? If not try raising the lever on the ice maker up to the off position. The water valve may ve trying to open and without water pressure it will make a noise. It would also be related to the switches on the door. I hope this helps, Jeff
