This answer was rated:

my ice maker is not producing ice anymore and there is a groaning sound/ almost like a snoring sound coming from the freezer. when I open the freezer door it stops. can i fix this? or at least stop the noise? we have a fridge where the freezer is a drawer on the bottom.
thank you.
