Watre dispenser makes squealing noise

Our refrigerator is 1 year old and about 6 months ago it started to make a slightly louder noise at is dispensed water. Now it is a high shrill squeal. I have looked at the lines to check for a kink or blockage, but didn't get any insight.

You may have to remove the line from the ice maker solenoid and check to see if it has a screen. If it does you may have to clean it. You will find the solenoid at the bottom in the back. Just follow the water line as it comes into the refer. at the bottom. It should be attached to the valve. Sometimes there is a copper line that has a female connector that screws into the valve. It is sometimes the size of a regular garden hose. Whether it is or isn't if it is removable remove it and check for a screen. If there is one clean it. If there is not you may have to replace the valve to get rid of the noise as sometimes the solenoids get weak or swell and they won't open up all the way.

Good Luck!
God Bless

The water dispenser is not putting out water and ice maker is not making ice. The fridge frequently cycles like it is trying to send out water.


it's still under warranty for up to 1 year,call whoever you bought it from and it should be repaired free of charge and next time you write send model number.

It may be a shorted high voltage diode.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..

Rumbling noise


you will find its very possiblely internal gas boiling off in the system.unfortunately you will have to get used to it because if gas is removed to minimise noise,your cooling will become poor. if you put more in, it will get louder and start icing up on the compressor pipe at the back.an exact amount is dialed in on manufacture. this noise ive heard many times.
