Look right above the icemaker part that forms the cubes. Its usually brown in color, Just above it are 2 extensions of that brown part that has 2 screws going into the left side of the freezer, Remove the 2 screws and the unit comes out. The power plug for it is just to the back bottom of the ice maker. If you can see it you can probably just unplug it to stop the noise.
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.
water will condense and then freeze in the fan area. Need to remove freezer inside back panel and remove ice from fan area. Fan is located abot @/3 down on right side. No permanent fix I have to do it about every three months.
To be able to remove the ice maker from the refrigerator, please follow the steps below:
Unplug the refrigerator ffrom the power outlet,
Open the door and unscrew the screws that mount the ice maker, there are basically 2 screws, for some model, there is a screw under the mounting that is holding the ice maker in place, but make sure you do not loosen the screws completely,
Lift the ice maker up from the screws mounting it and pull it out from the rear of the refrigertor,
You will have to squeeze the tab on the wire connector in order to remove it from the refrigerator wire harness.
Then you can remove the ice maker.
That is how to remove the ice maker from the amana refrigerator.
All the best.
There is a tube , from the rear of the freezer , to the ice maker , which freezes closed , not letting water get to the ice maker . When it freezes , it is due to a " seeping " water valve , which means , this valve is not closing completely , letting a drop go thru and freezing in the tube . Replace the water valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to , on the back of the refrig ) . Also , remove the tube ( may have to remove the ice maker , 3 screws ) and defrost the tube .
If you had your water cut off to the ice maker and didn't have the ice maker turned off, it was your ice maker. You turn it off by lifting the wire arm and leaving it in the up position.

You should have three screws on the side of the ice make. Two right above the tray and one below. Remove the screws and unplug a four wire connector. When you reinstall it check for proper water fill. A low water pressure to unit or ice maker valve getting plugged up can cause a small cube to get stuck.
Hi, Reach in and see if you can feel ant ice laying on top of the ice maker fingers that might be jamming the ice maker. The motor making a noise is why I suggest this. If you can remove the ice maker and look, it would be better. Another option is to pop the ice maker head cover off and see if the drive wheel is trying to turn or maybe even broke.
Please let me know what you find so I can assist you further.
