It sounds like the compressor is the problem.
1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.

Icemaker starts then stops


The drop sensor is faulty, fooling the machine that the ice has harvested so it restarts. Eventually you will just have a solid block of ice. Replace sensor (magnetic reed switch)

My sub-zero 532 makes ice that melts and refreezes


Hopefully, you've solved your problem by now, over a year later. If not, a similar problem I have with my 532 is due to the aluminum tube that the water flows through to fill the icemaker. Over time, this metal tube moves away from the icemaker toward the hose it is attached to due to the hose being warmer than the freezer compartment. This creates a gap between the metal tube and the icemaker causing water to spill into the ice bucket each time the icemaker refills. It makes you think the ice is melting and refreezing, but it is really just the water freezing when it spills into the ice. To correct the problem. you have to remove the icemaker, which is not that difficult, if you have a long stem phillips screwdriver. Then grab the metal water tube with some needle nose pliers, and pull it toward you to return it to its original position. If you pull too hard and it comes completely off the hose it is attached to, it is difficult to re-connect, but can be done, as I have had this happen several times, and have succeeded to re-connect it each time with some patience. The metal tube must fit snuggly into the icemaker when the icemaker is re-installed to prevent it from leaking water into the ice bucket each time it refills. My model 532 is now 23 years old and still working. Good luck!

Ice maker does not work. Has worked fine until about a week ago


Mine has done this several times. There is a switch, usually in the tray above the ice container at the back. Move the switch to the OFF position for about 30 seconds. Now, turn the switch ON and push it hard in the ON position for about 30 seconds. This will 'jump start' your icemaker going again and you shouldn't have any more problems.

A loud intermitant buzzing coming from the back of the fridge


either the noise is coming form he ice maker fill valve( but if its of and still aking noise i doubt it. it also possible that the noise is coming from the compressor itself, overheating nad trying to restart in which case would give a slight "buzz" noise for 5secs or so then "click" off, and wait maybe 3 min to restart again. look for melted ice andperhaps your ice dream ont as hard as it should be???

Subzero 500 series ice maker


It sound's like you have a faulty icemaker. The icemaker has an internal timer that commands the inlet valve on at the correct time. If it does not stop the command, it will continue to fill. When you shut off the system, it kills power to the icemaker and that is why the solenoid goes off.

New GE profile bottom freezer fridge intermittent buzzing


If the buzzing is a short (say 5 seconds) every once in a while, it sounds like the water is valve being energized. That would mean the icemaker is turned on and is cycling. Besides the noise, when it cycles it turns on the mold heater, which you do not need if not making ice, and thus is actually adding heat to your freezer, increasing operating cost. Just turn the icemaker off by flipping the toggle switch on the icemaker itself. It is a white switch near the bottom corner of the icemaker. Should be easy to spot.

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.
