Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker

1 Answer

Noises Last winter we lost power for days, ever since, our two years old refrig started making noises often, we are not sure where exactly, but it does sound like it has something to do with the water going into the ice makers. I understand it's normal for some degrees of noise when the water is filling up, but this happens very often and honestly, I don't remember the refrig. used to make so much sound and often throughout the day. Is it normal? or this is something that I can fix it myself? Please help!

This sounds like it had water left in it and it froze over the winter. The motot turning on and off signals a water leak on the output side of the pump. You may have a cracked pump housing.

Sounds like the compressor has a broken spring inside. The only fix is to replace the compressor. But before calling a service man, disconnect the power from the unit and remove the cover on the back covering the compressor. Look for any loose parts at the compressor. Make sure nothing is touching the compressor causing the noise. Make sure the pan that holds water during the defrost cycle is not loose and rattling. If you feel safe doing so, plug it in and see exactly where the noise if coming from. If it has never been cleaned then clean all the coils and all around the compressor with a vacuum cleaner but make sure it is not plugged in when doing this and use care not to damage any parts. They make a special tool that goes on your vacuum wand to reach inside the coils to remove accumulated dust. If you find no loose parts and determine that the noise is coming from the compressor all is not lost. The compressor can be replaced if the unit is otherwise in good condition. If it is over 15 years old, I would consider purchasing a new unit and not repairing this one. I hope I have been helpful.

Avenger chain problem

first thing is check the alignment of the rear sprocket to the front sprocket and make sure it is dead straight,when you change wheels you have to make sure that the spacings are ...exactly...right or you will get alignment problems,the chain will wear badly and the sprockets will not last long either,if the chain is three years old "replace it"with agood quality one and if the sprocket teeth look worn replcae them to or they will eat your new chain this helps

Ice Maker Making Noise

sounds like your icemaker is jammed.

first ofall just feel around the icemaker and see if you can find a peice of ice jamming it that you can remove. if that doesnt work heat it up with a blow dryer until any ice that is there will melt away and it will free up..

there is one other possibility: the stripper could be jammed against the side of the icemaker in which case you'll have to remove the icemaker from the refrig and unjam it..

hope that helps and good luck
