Frigidaire Side by side Knocking noise.

If you find yourself wondering what that banging noise is coming from the fridge every few hours, your not the only one...

This is usually the Ice maker. it seems to be caused when the cubes are slightly too big, sometimes its just a poorly made ice maker.

Its typically not a functional issue but Replacing the ice maker is the only solution, tho it may return later.... I have had the best luck replacing it and lowering the water level for ice.

The noise is the plastic gear on the ice maker, when the ice rake contacts the cubes it flexes and releases making the pop. Apparently the designers figured it wasn't worth a redesign to fix...

This repair will run you close to $200 so be sure you cant live with that pop before you call the service man!
