bottom drawer ice maker
no door ice or water dispenser installed
problem: approximately 3 times per day, the ice maker makes a loud clicking noise that sounds like a plastic gear slips and then clicks(bangs). The noise stops after about 1 full minute. When the noise was happening I felt the ice maker and it felt as though the the ice tray was trying to rotate but was either stuck or was slipping as described above. I will try to get a video of the issue tomorrow.
Any ideas how to make sure it is the ice maker and not something else?
Thanks
Carl

Hi Carl,

The ice maker gear sounds like its stripping. You'd need to replace the ice maker.

Here's the ice maker for your model you can order(Video Included in part link):
