Yes, but by the fragmented question posted, I assume you object to the noise it makes. They can be turned 'off' by latching the tray sensing wire, simulating a 'full' tray.

Could some please post how to remover the ice maker from my kitchen aid model ktrc 19 m refrig thank you


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.

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.

Ice maker is splashing water all over back of freezer and it builds up til the fan starts to make noise if I turn it off and defrost the ice it will start up noise free til the ice builds again.


What is the model number of your unit? When the ice builds up, does the ice just build up where it is splashing or is the ice also building up behind the back wall of the freezer?

Thank you! Richard

Funny noises - sounds like it has to do with the ice maker The noises come and go; but, no ice is being made.


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 .

Humming noise comming from around the ice maker


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.

Whirlpool freezer on top ice maker is making a grinding noise and is not making ice Apiece of ice is sticking out of the icemaker's tray. we left it in the off position a couple of days. when we returned...


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.

Ice maker not making ice. motor is making noise,


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.
