Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators

Open Question

ICE MAKER - MAKING LOUD WHINING NOISE - SOUNDS LIKE A GEAR MOTOR INSIDE THE DRIVE MOTOR MECHANISM. Since the ice maker never has worked very efficiently for an extended period - I believe simple removal would be a viable alternative. 28.8 cu ft side by side. It has a revolving crank mechanism - I believe it might be a gear motor that is not functioning correctly. Just a wild guess. Sept 1 2010. Would also like to find a qualified repair person in Miami, Florida. Thanks for any assistance.

SOURCE: Admiral Refrigerator makes hollow ice

Hollow ice cubes are due to low water pressure to the fridge. Water thru the door should have good pressure behind it. This is a good indicator of water pressure. Should be able to fill a glass quickly. Causes for low pressure are self-piercing saddle valves on the water line (switch to drill type (1/4") valve) or reverse osmosis system or filtering system on water line to the fridge. R.O. systems should not be used. Increase water pressure and that will fix the hollow cubes. The loud noise may be the sound of the water valve on the fridge when it is acivated. This sound is normal and some are louder than others.

Make sure your manual doesn't say something about inline filters, or a float that might be sticking in off position. Depending on how ice is made sometimes they have a float to where water rises so hight then gets shut off to freeze and form the ice.

SOURCE: Amana French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator making noise but not making ice

The noise you hear is the ice maker trying to make ice without a water supply. Check the line to make sure you didn't knock anything loose or kink it when changing the filter, and check for a plugged line. It could be that there is ice build up in the line, a defrost will cure that.

SOURCE: Kitchenaid Superba Ice Maker quit

Water dispenser works fine eliminates some potential probems, so disconnect the water line at the outlet of the water valve leading to the icemaker. Blow into the tube (with the freezer door open so the air has an escape route.) If you can't blow through the tube, check where the tube passes into the freezer section for an ice blockage. This would result from a water valve not shutting off 100 %, allowing a little water to dribble in and freeze the inlet shut. If you can blow through the tube, most likely the electric solenoid coil on the water valve supplying the ice maker water is bad. In either case, replace the valve. (it is a dual solenoid valve, part # 2315533)

I get a loud grinding noise from my ice maker. What can make that noise?


Hi,

Thank you for your information you provided, could the noise be described as a clicking or ticking noise? The reason I ask is I have heard for this to be a motor driven harvest and the heating within the ice maker is not engaging to release the ice, so the unit continues to push the ice out causing the gear to jump a tooth. If this is the case the only fix is replacing the ice maker to fix the issue. Other possible cause of grinding is the water in not entering the ice maker (hollow ice cubes) so the water is accumulating around the fan motor and freezing up. As the fan turns on the grinding is the fan motor cutting away at the ice. Gain access to the fan motor and check for ice around the fan, if its there remove that ice. The cause is that the water is not getting into the ice maker and causing this issue. Good Luck, I hope this helps.

What causes ice maker to make constant clicking noise. This happens in the on and off positions.


The constant clicking noise is probably the neoprene gears within the timer motor itself. Well, sometimes there is a brass 'drive' gear that meshes with a neoprene gear which then in turn operates the mechanical components of the ice maker.

My Hotpoint makes a high pitched humming noise all the time.


Hi,

This noise is most likely coming from the evaporator fan motor that is located behind the panel just below the ice maker. There is an air duct that the fan blows through to cool the ice maker that is why the sound is heard in the ice maker area more.

The noise does not hurt anything but the motor can be replaced if it gets too annoying, it is a fairly common complaint. The part number for the motor is WR60X10185 and runs about $60.00. It is a bit challenging to get to but can be done with a bit of patience by removing everything in the freezer and taking the back panel off the inside of the freezer.

Loud noise coming from icemaker...noise decreases when i increase temp and goes away when icemaker shut off. I set the initial temp at 3 degrees, then let it make ice - after about 3 hours it sounded like...


The icemaker is pretty simple, there is a motor, a solenoid, and a couple of switches.

It sounds like the whole icemaker mechanism is jammed or has a broken gear, and the motor is trying it's darndest to turn the stuck mechanism (grinding it's gears in the process), or the gear has already gone, and what's left of the gear is dancing around in there.

My guess is either the $7 icemaker drive gear or the $94 icemaker assembly.

this sounds as if your drive shaft has failed, take to your nearest mechanic and have him verify this this should only cost about 200 euros to repair if it is the drivshaft.
