First it was the water dispenser but was able to fix that with your help, now the ice dispenser has gotten really loud.
Any tips on fixing this?

Take the ice bucket out and see if the auger motor runs noisy without it. You'll need to hold the door switch in when you press the dispenser lever. Try it in BOTH CUBED and CRUSHED.

Here's the auger motor for your model:

Sorry for late reply. It all of the sudden went away but now it's back.
Just took the bucket out and the motor is noticeable but it seems to be worse when the bucket is back in.
Not sure if the main culprit isn't the 'blade area' where the cubes actually come out.
That said, it's definitely louder when in 'CUBE.'

Ok, next disconnect the wires to auger motor and tape the wire ends up with black electrical tap and put it in CUBED and see if its loud, if so then the problem is the Solenoid and Yoke Assembly.

Here's the Solenoid and Yoke Assembly for your model you can order:

Trying to replace the solenoid but my Frigidaire fridge isn't exactly like the one in the 'how to' video above. In that, there's no wiring adapter in my fridge like in their display unit.

How do I go about removing now?
