Samsung RFG297AARS refrigerator ice maker making noise.

Resolved Question:

Samsung RFG297AARS refrigerator's ice maker is making a clicking sound. Water supply to the fridge seems to be good, but it's making little ice. The problem started after I replaced the water filter.

This is common on these, first you will need to check and see if theres an ice buildup in the ice maker itself, the best way is the remove it and defrost the ice maker with a hair dryer. If it still does the clicking then its in the ice maker itself and you will need to replace it, heres a link to the ice maker.

Can't tell because it's a top view and I haven't removed the part from the frig yet. That's the first thing I have to do, get this part out.

Yeah the auger has to come out and then there are screws I believe on this at the top of the ice maker going into the side wall.
