Check that the return air duct near the bottom of the fridge is not blocked. The air may be going into the fridge but cant get out. It has to complete a cycle where it gets drawn back into the freezer to get cold and then gets blown back into the food compartment. The baffle controls how much or how little cold air goes in. You may have to take the rear panel off the inside of the freezer, there may an ice buildup in there.

I think you mixed the F and the D in the model# so it should read MFD2561HES instead.

There are a few things that can cause an ice maker to stop working. Firstly, would be the temperature inside the freezer not being cold enough. It should be as close to 0' F as possible.

There is an inline fuse that sometimes, but rarely blows. When you changed the icemaker, did it come with a new harness or did you swap the one off the old icemaker onto the new one? Removing the harness and ohming the black wire ( The one with the white piece that clips onto the bottom of the icemaker) will determine if that fuse is still good. Without knowing what happened to the old icemaker, I would not rule that out!

More commonly, The water solenoid goes bad and will let the icemaker cycle without giving it water. Sometimes it goes completely dead while most often it fails to close completely. When this happens, it allows water to "drip" and usually freezes inside the water fill tube. ( Think of your kitchen faucet.. When they start to go bad, they will not shut off and needs to be jiggled to stop it from dripping) If this happens, the fill tube will need to be defrosted after a new valve has been installed. Defrosting the fridge is recommended as you can damage the inside if you use a hairdryer or some other form of rapid heat.

The sizzling sound you hear is most likely the fridge in its defrost cycle. During this time, you would not hear it running and it would get louder when the freezer drawer is opened. It would sound similar to water drops hitting a hot stove. This is completely normal and happens randomly! Do not panic over this!

It may help to take the ice maker plastic unit out of the refrigerator and rinse with warm water, then dry. There may be ice blocking the flap from closing. Also, check to see that the plastic unit is fully seated as it should be in the refrigerator itself.

Unplug it for a couple of minutes, Try again. It may have been hit with a surge. IF that is the case, you are looking at main control board and some money. Contact your homeowners insurance if a surge has damaged it.

Another area to look into is the control panel itself. Due to moisture seeping under the plastic filament the touch buttons / leds may stop working
