Customer Question

I have and under counter whirlpool ice maker gl15ndxtb1 and it started making loud buzzing sound from compressor and got very hot. Could this indicate compressor going out or could the start relay & overload combo D be bad?

The start relay may be bad can you take it off and shake it and see if it sounds like there is sand in it? If so that is likely bad. The compressor could be bad, but I would check and replace the relay overload kit first on the unit. Here is a link to it.
