Ice Maker Not Making Ice BUT making a "trying" sound

Our Icemaker isn't doing it's job. Sounds like it's trying, but nothing. The "sound" happens about every 5 minutes. Dumped the ice today that had lots of water in it. Now, about 5 hours later, no ice, but still sound!!!

Likely that the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.

Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.

    Ice maker not making ice


    Try raising and lowering the bar several times then make sure that the bar is in the lower position. If that doesn't work, you may have to replace the icemaker unit. You can find them at a supply house.

    Subzero 690 ss icemaker making a clicking sound why


    If the noise is coming from the ice maker head itself. Then it sounds like the gear is slipping. They are plastic and it is very common for them to crack or break. Most ice makers are the same. Click Here to see a post on a Whirlpool ice maker with a broken gear.

    Good Luck From David at refrigerator repair.

    My whirlpool aide by side fridge icemaker is making buzzing or humming noise


    Hello
    Welcome to fixya.
    I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


    You said, your ice maker is making a buzzing or humming noise ice maker isn't making much ice. . fridge is about 2 1/2 years old.

    This sounds like a clogged water line or a electrical short !
    I would get service rather than take a chance on electrical fire.
    Or burn up the circuit in the ice maker.


    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to advise you.
    Huuum
