I called my favorite John Moore repairman who had been out a couple weeks before for my clothes dryer. I had briefly mentioned my icemaker problem to him then & he told me to remove the ice bucket, empty the ice, rinse it & re-install it. So when I called the second time & had him listen to the noise on the phone, he said I needed a new ice bucket. I got the model # off the fridge, ordered it from Repair Clinic.com and bingo! Works like a charm now. I saved at least $98 trip charge & who knows what he would have charged to do the same thing. Total charge to me for ice bucket & new water filter was under $150.
