Question about Whirlpool GS6SHEXMB / GS6SHEXMQ / GS6SHEXMT Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Clicking noise Ice maker started clicking after about 18 months. Clicking noise was continuous as long as ice maker was on, but went off when ice maker was switched off. Water dispenser also started clicking when used and dispenser light flashed intime with clicks. Water also dispensed in 'spurts' in time with clicking. Recently clicking noise comes and goes at any time, but is getting more frequent. I suspect a solenoid, but would appreciate some guidance on the difficulty of locating and replacing.

THE FRONT PANEL IS DEFECTIVE. HAVE REPLACED TWO IN LAST MONTH. JUST TAKE NOTE OF MODEL WITH DEALER AS CERTAIN MODELS HAVE TO HAVE THE POWER BOARD REPLACED AS WELL.

My sub zero ice maker is making a clicking noise every few seconds

If the ice maker has not been connected to a water supply the water valve will be making either a buzzing or clicking noise as it tries to fill up in the ice maker. Check that the ice maker is turned off if the refrigerator has not been connected to a water supply.

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 ice maker fails to make ice, and seems to get "stuck" between batches, causing a clicking noise that occurs continuously about every 30 seconds. Any suggestions?

check for a stuck ice cube, something is preventing your ice maker to advance, if there is no ice cube, replace ice maker part #wr30x10093 for standard in freezer ice maker or part #wr30x10097 for ice maker in refrigerator

My ice maker does not eject ice when frozen. Make

Good day,
Unplug refrigerator.
Snap off front cover of the ice maker. You will see a large white gear.
If the plastic gear has a screw in the center, then you can remove the gear and inspect for broken teeth. The gear is easily replaced thru any appliance parts house.
If there is no screw then the ice maker uses a semi-solid circuit board and must be replaced.

Our Samsung ice maker stopped working

Sound like the problem may be a gear broken or damaged in the module which appears to be replaceable in your model. If you can dissasemble it enough to inspect the gears you may can replace the part instead of the entire ice maker. It looks like the motor may be in part 18 on this diagram. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=RS2630WW&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=1482&modelName=SAMSUNG-REFRIGERATION&diagramPageId=00009&componentDescription=ICE%20MAKER&documentId=M0612092&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

Clicking noise, ice maker out, freezer temp high

Low temperatures are absolutely required for proper operation of ice makers components. Dirty cooling coils or possible low refrigerant.
