Loud noise from waterline to refrigerator

The water line to our side by side w/water and icemaker is vibrating and making a loud noise at the connection to the wall and/or refrigerator.

    All of a sudden on a 2 yr old refrigerator the water line began vibrating back and forth - being shaken by line starting at water softener in the basement. Nothing in manual.

SOURCE: The water line vibrates and makes noise when using

Does it make noises when anything else in the house uses water?(sinks, toilets filling up?)
If not the pull the fridge out and make sure water line clamp was installed. It will be a small clamp near the bottom of the fridge on tha same side the line comes into the back of it.
Is there a water filter that has been replaced recently?

SOURCE: whirlpool side by side refrigerator - grinding noise from icemaker

That would likely be the ice maker "motor module". They are notorious for failing. The plastic gear on the front pulls away from the contact springs from ear tab failure, etc. It's an easy fix to replace the whole module (about $70 bucks). See the diagram here. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Whirlpool/THIERSZO.gif

Does water come out of the water dispenser?

I is more likely that the tube that drains the water down from the self defrost mechanism is clogged. Look in the very back of the reefer cabinet, you will see a trough back there, if it is full of ice and water the drain tube is clogged up. If so, a little blast of air from a can of air (like the ones you use to blow off computer key boards will blow it out. Then the water can drain down to the evaporator pan and you will no longer get water on the floor.

SOURCE: Ice maker not making ice after replacing water line.

Ice makers are a common problem. On many brands there is a reset button behind the plastic cover. However if you physically see Ice clogging your water inlet to the ice maker, this will without a doubt prevent the ice maker from making ice. Use hot water or a steamer to unclog the ice or you can leave the unit unplugged for a few hours to defrost the freezer. You should be able to hear when the ice maker cycles and lets in water. Note: if you're getting plenty of water out of your in door water dispenser, then it's NOT a water supply problem. You may need to check the solenoid that controls water entering the ice maker.

My side by side refrigerator is making a buzzing noise from the ice maker area every few minutes


Hello,
That sound you here is the icemaker calling for water to fill the icemaker but not water into refrig to fill icemaker. If you have no water connected to icemaker,lift up and lock arm into place to turn off icemaker,if you do have water line connected but no ice is being made need to see why water from house plumbing is not coming into the refrig.

I got this .bn20513ww not a month ago and notice it make loud knocking noise


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Does it only make the noise when the compressor fist comes on for a minute or so? If so its the freon lines in the walls flexing from temperature change and moving in the walls it wont damage anything but it seems to be an issue just because it is annoying ,more so at night when the house is quiet.This is all i can thing of unless its the icemaker,If your water line is not hooked up and your icemaker is turned on it will be making noise from running dry.If so just turn the icemaker off.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Is there a shut off valve on the ice maker?


There should be a shut off valve at the beginning of the water line that the installer tapped into when installing your icemaker. Mine runs down through my kitchen floor into my laundry room and is tapped into a copper cold waterline with a small handle attached to it.

To stop icemaker from making ice simply raise the lever to the up position that is attached and hangs next to your icemaker tray. This works on most models.

GE Profile Icemaker freezing up; water freezes down inside wall of freezer; icemaker making ice, very slowly, but will not dispense. Water is still dispensing


This sounds like your water valve is not completely closing allowing water to drip and freeze. First check to make sure that the water tube going into the cup of the ice maker is lined up correctly and not causing this problem - if it is lined up correctly then replace the water valve on the back of the refrigerator that your main line is connected to.

We purchased a new KitchenAid Side by Side Refrigerator Model # KSRG25FVBL01 that makes a loud knocking noise accompanied by rattling from the date we purchsed. We are getting runaround in getting it fixed...


The knocking noises heard from the Freon moving through the sealed system are perfectly normal and usually do not last long. Since the evaporator coil is mounted in the freezer section, the noise is usually louder there. Some people say it sounds like marbles knocking together.
Refrigerant (Freon) moving through the system can cause a vibration/rattling, especially as the compressor first starts up.
  1. Vibrating from top of cabinet Remove, rearrange or pad any stored items atop the refrigerator such as houseplants, coins, pens, etc.
  2. Vibrating from back or sides of refrigerator Move refrigerator away from water line in the rear or away from walls / cabinets along the side of the cabinet. Refrigerators with a static condenser on the back require a rear clearance of 3 inches across the top of the condenser.
  3. Vibrating from the bottom of refrigerator Level refrigerator so all 4 rollers / feet rest solidly on the floor.
    Hope this works.....

1. My fridge is making a loud clicking noise at


If there is ice in the icemaker and its not ejecting the ice you more than likely have a bad heater in your icemaker not heating the cubes for the rake to scoop them out. No water through the door would probably be a separate issue. If its a GE they are known for poor insulation on the freezer door and the water line will freeze going up the inside of the door. If you remove the kickplate there will be a quick connect coupler. remove it from the line going up the door and call for water. If you get water to this point you know the line is frozen through the door. If not then you will want to check your saddle valve for calcium deposits gunking it up. Least common issue would be a bad water valve.

Kenmore icemaker


It sounds like the icemaker is making hollow cubes , and the unfrozen water in the cubes , after dumping , freezes and causes the ice shells to stick togather . This is a sign of " not enough water going into the icemaker " . Replace the water inlet valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to , on the refrig .
