My Kenmore 106.51133213 has been giving me issues of late. It quit making ice so I checked for freezing in the lines. No jams. Tried running it without the water filter and that worked for a couple hours. Now back to no ice and I have a loud knocking type sound coming from the freezer door in the area of the ice maker at the top of the door. Sounds like.someone banging two drum sticks together.
The sound comes only when the ice machine switch is turned on, and it goes away when I open the freezer door while it's making the noise. It makes the noise every 2 hours or so. If the ice maker is turned off, no sound is ever made.
After the ice maker has been of for a couple days, I switched it back on and it made ice again for a couple hours, while making the noise a few times. Now back to no ice production.
Does this sound like an issue with the ice maker itself or could it be another part?
