SO I have/had this problem. The knocking started almost 3 months ago when I got it. IT got to the point where the ice make will not work.
Just had the repairman out. He started out clueless but over the course of an hour he had the factory on the line, and got it resolved, I was watching over his shoulder.

The ice mold is on a cam. It drops down and around to the right to fill with water, and then back up into the center to freeze the water. HE got a kick out of how it worked, it is kind of cute.

When its going to the right to fill, there is a plate in the back right hand side that covers the copper freon line, it protrudes into the path of the ice mold. As ice/frost build up it bends it more to the point it will prevent the mold from swinging into the position to get water. Thats what happened to me.

There is a kit to fix. He did a temp fix:
1) With the Ice tray out.
2)Remove 2 screws on the front lower part of the ice maker and slide cover off.
3)On the right side 2 freon lines come into the ice maker there is a piece of plastic, maybe 2-3 inches square, with a slight offset to it. That's the problem piece. Remove it, and bend it a touch so it pulls it out of the path of the mold.
4) Reassemble.

WHen my kit comes, I'll just re-install it myself.

Ice maker makes knocking noice


It would depend on the model of your fridge. Most fridges, you would just need to change the icemaker, but if it is a whirlpool or kitchenaid, you can just replace the module on the front of the icemaker (part number 8201515)

How do I stop the loud knocking noises coming from my refridgerator?


Pull the fridge away from the wall and inspect the compressor. Your description sounds like the compressor is hitting something. It is rubber mounted and usually can be pushed away from whatever it is hitting.You do not want to jamb something to stop the noise, as the compressor needs to move freely. Many compressors shake during start up and shutdown, and this is considered normal. Abnormal if the compressor hits something during this movement.

Ice keeps building up in bottom of freezer and on vent inside fridge and now fridge won't stay cold.


Clean the coil inside the rear access panel behind the unit with a spray air duster and check for this problem.

I just opened up the back of my Frigidaire Side by Side counter depth to find the drain hose was bent and collapsed coming right out of the bottom of the freezer and the pan was dry as a bone. It doesn't look like my drain hose has ever drained a drop of water. The freezer bottom is full of ice And the rust and chipping paint under the bottom of the freezer door along with the mysterious puddles of water every morning means the drain system definetely never worked. Frigidaire should be responsible for this. This, along with the ice maker rebuild I had to do,... after ice was spilling all through the fridge. I actually had warrantty left on that one and called customer support in India to find out I could make the repair myself. Yep I had to do it. Frigidaire you failed.

I have a frost free fridge freezer zanussi (electrolux) znb323s. A week ago I discovered the fridge part was not cooling but the freezer part seemed fine. I emptied the fridge and turned off to defros I have a frost free fridge freezer zanussi (electrolux) znb323s. A week ago I discovered the fridge part was not cooling but the freezer part seemed fine. I emptied the fridge and turned off to defrost. The top part of the freezer was heavily encased in ice (evaporate coils I think). After perusing the web for advice I removed the the front vent, the back wall and dropped the coil panel to access the fan. The fan had obviously not been working for some time cos it was covered in ice. I defrosted the whole fridge for 2 days. Turned it back on and the freezer part seems fine although v cold. The fridge seems not to be cooling again. The compressor seems to be constantly running. Current temps are fridge 12, freezer -25, ambient 16. I haven't got anything in the freezer yet. Thermostat set on 1 (1-6 setting). How is the fridge cooled? When I removed the evap panel I could not see how cold air gets to the fridge. There aren't any holes in the fridge so I am assuming the back panel should be cooled. If the thermostat is u/s would the compressor still run? Does the thermostat control any duct vv from freezer to fridge back panel? I attempted to remove some of the insulation from the fridge rear but was worried about cutting anything under it so abandoned that. Wife now giving me grief. Pse help. Andy
