Matt, this model has a main board in back that controls the operation of the evap fan. This is a two speed, DC motor and the fan takes a least one minute to change speeds. Therefore any speed changes in less than a minute time is abnormal. I usually find that the board is causing the problem. If you're handy with a meter you can do some tests. On harness J2 on the control board (just below the top harneses) check the DC voltage on pins 3 and 8 reading from left to right. There should be at least 12VDC. If you find a fluctuation of voltage, your board is giving you the problem. Catriver...post back

SOURCE: Ice Maker too slow
bayfishr, I'll try to give you an idea on how this thing works and let you do some checks. The cycle is controlled by temp. The harvesting process begins when the IM thermostat closes signaling the harvest temp has been reached. The closed thermostat supplies power to the IM motor and heater. Therefore the colder you keep it, the faster the production unless something has failed. I see a lot of heaters fail. You can test this. When the IM starts it cycle, test the voltage from L to H on the module,they will be marked. Should read 120V. The heater on the bottom of the mold should be getting hot. Disconnect the harnes and ohm it. Should ohm out at approx 72 ohms, same test points. If this checks good, check the center wheel on the module itself. Two clips keep the wheel in place. If one is cracked off, the IM will not fucntion properly. Other than colder temps, there is no way to adjust the speed of the cycle. Keep the flap in front of the ice-maker down so that the cold air is drawn across that IM. Catriver.

suspect you have a problem with the defrost system and hence the noise with the fan. take back panel off inside the freezer and if i'm right, melt ice off with a hairdryer. get back to me to say the results if you want

You don't have to worry about the ice and frost, Your heater does that for you Your heater comes on and defrost every day. You just need to tighten the screws and clean up the vent where the noise is coming from but I wouldn't worry about it. The temperature on your fridge and freezer is running optimal, You know the saying, if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it....just tap the vent covers every few days.

Did you clean the condenser? Is the unit FULLY defrosted? Defrost fully!!!!!!
Did he check the amount of gas in the unit? If your unit has low gas...it is in need of more. R12 is expensive.
Check gas level: Shut unit for at least one hour. View compressor. Several pipes...we're looking at the largest. Start the unit. This pipe will begin to frost. If it does not clear to dry, ice or wet...stays frosted...it is low. Get the repair guy back ... but ask how much he'll charge first.
