I have a electrolux french door refrigerator with the ice and water dispenser on the door. There is a sizzling noise coming from inside the ice maker. At first i thought it was the ice maker fan, but it's not because i see it is going on and off without noise. It sizzles for like 2 seconds then stops and starts again after another second. The noise is always there not just when the compressor is running, except when you first plug it in, it takes like 30 seconds before it starts. The water isn't hooked up yet and the ice machine is turned off. Do You have any idea what it could be?
ANSWER Hello John. The icemaker in those models is a part of the sealed system and will require some mode of defrost. Based on the description you provided, ti sounds like that is what you are hearing in the unit.
