Hi,

The problem started about a week ago when the lights on the ice maker just turned off and it would stop functioning.  When this happens I typically hear a *thump* sound every other second.  If you attempt to dispense ice or water when the display is dark, the thump continues but you also hear a beep and the lights flash at the same interval as the sounds. Every now and then, there is a loud click that used to occur right when dispensing ice (when it was working properly). Then suddenly, everything is back to normal and it works fine.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I have figured out that the *thump* sound is the motor (or whatever) slowly opening the black flap for the ice to dispense and the loud click is the flap quickly shutting once fully opened.  There is no ice dispensing or anything because it is not engaging the ice make to dispense ice...it is just lifting the flap for some reason.
