Kenmore model JD-21 icemaker makes a humming sound when the ice is being dumped. As the cut-off arm goes up, you hear a gear grinding to make a loud hum. Banging on the side of the icemaker or refrigerator stops the sound for a few seconds until the arm is through and the ice is dumped. Ice maker is quiet at all the other times.

When it turns on, it makes a rapid, loud clicking sound for up to about 5 seconds (sometimes just one). Seems related to the compressor activating since the compressor sometimes does not go on, no click, and no cooling, so the fans just keeps running. Then I have to unplug so fan stops and let it sit for many hours, sometimes 24, then replug and the clicking starts and it cools again. What's the problem?

My water dispenser stopped working. When I try dispensing water, I hear a clicking sound, but no water comes out. Is something frozen inside? When this has happened in the past, I've emptied the ice holding compartment and the water dispenser would eventually start working again. This time, it still doesn't work. I've read on here that something may be frozen and I can defrost with hairblower and lower freezer setting and raise regrigerator setting. Where do I blow to defrost?
