Is everything cooling properly?

Customer: replied 29 days ago.
The noise is coming from the ice maker.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 29 days ago.

Replace the icemaker on the unit, most of them fail making all sorts of noises. You can unplug it in the mean time until you get a new one, but I would replace it. I have seen a lot of them do that.
