Perhaps. I own. Frigidaire side by side fridge and my wife

Customer Question

Perhaps. I own. Frigidaire side by side fridge and my wife called me home from work because a grinding noise started all of a sudden. I got home and the noise appears to be coming from the ice maker area. I've removed the ice tray and turned off ice maker but noise continues... any ideas?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: Manufactured in 2009. Model # LGHS2667KP0
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If I can.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I think that's it

If you unplug the icemaker does it stop?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I can unplug the ice maker??
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Or do you mean the fridge?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 12 days ago.

Unplug the icemaker there is a modular plug that you can unplug it

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Ugh... I can't see anything except the ice maker itself. Is the plug typically buried behind the ice maker?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 12 days ago.

Yes it is behind the icemaker.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Think I found it, it's just difficult to reach. Just a moment.
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Sorry. It's difficult to unplug. I need another moment
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I'm screaming at all fridge manufacturers everywhere. My hands are too big to get in there and unplug it. Who develops these things anyway???
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Here is picture. It is directly behind the body of the ice maker
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 12 days ago.

Yes that one is a pain to get at.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I have to leave my house. What are my options ifA) noise stops when I get it unplugged orB) noise does not stop when I get it unplugged
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 12 days ago.

If the noise stops replace the icemaker, if not check the evaporator fan blade. If it is a slow grindy sound it will be a bad icemaker.
