Either the switch is bad that moves the selection from crushed to whole ice or the ice crushing motor is out

Ice maker works fine and ice comes down but when it goes to crush the ice it wont crush it jams up


Hi,

Remove the ice bin, examine the metal arm on the back of the bin. This arm needs to move up and down freely, this arm is the shifter for the cube and crush setting. Also look at the square hole in the back of the freezer where the bucket came out of, the shifter in there needs to be down all the way also.

With the freezer door open, depress the cube setting on the door, hold the light switch and depress the dispenser button, do you hear a click? If so the shifter works in the freezer and the problem in in the bin itself. With no model number given, I have to assume the ice bin is not in the door, its inside the top portion of the freezer section.

Good Luck

I have an Amanda double Door refrigerator with an ice & water dispenser. The ice machine unit's dose not dispense ice cubes,


If the unit is making ice and the water will work from the door but the does not dispense, you will need to replace the "auger motor". Here is the part to order.

Amana Model # ARS9167AB water line works fine, water not filling ice tray and front of fridge between doors is burning hot!! Im afraid to go to bed in case of fire! Underneath is all clean.


Check this Once in a while the temp. in the freezer varies. When the icemaker is running through its' cycle, ice crystals form and cause a blockage and the cycle stops. Also check the stop arm. Make sure it's not stuck in the 'up' position. This sometimes happens when the bin is overly full and the arm gets stuck in the 'off' position. You say you have water supply...other than these quick fixes, I can't think of any other things to check. Good luck.

How do I remove the ice maker from the refrigerator?


Hello there,
To be able to remove the ice maker from the refrigerator, please follow the steps below:
  1. Unplug the refrigerator ffrom the power outlet,
  2. Open the door and unscrew the screws that mount the ice maker, there are basically 2 screws, for some model, there is a screw under the mounting that is holding the ice maker in place, but make sure you do not loosen the screws completely,
  3. Lift the ice maker up from the screws mounting it and pull it out from the rear of the refrigertor,
  4. You will have to squeeze the tab on the wire connector in order to remove it from the refrigerator wire harness.
  5. Then you can remove the ice maker.
That is how to remove the ice maker from the amana refrigerator.
All the best. Elect_Comp

Hi

If  The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Mullion heater connection for Amana 84" Integrated bottom mount refer model B136CAR3 mfg P1318402W. I need to hook up the mullion heater that is under the freezer, component P/N 12401301. But I cannot find the mullion heater connection point. According to the specs it's installed in the foam and not wired from the factory and is for service purposes. The reason for this is that the water from the defrost cycle re-freezes and clogs the drain hole. Eventually the ice gets almost an inch thick and it's SOLID. The freezer drawer cannot open, so I have to thaw it all out and pry it open. I've done this dozens of times over the years! The service tech never figured it out. But with help of my boat-refer-expert brother we found the solution at the high level. Devil is in the details. According to the instructions: make a slit and peel back the white vinyl harness sleeve that goes to the water valve, pull out two wires (black and white) that aren't connected to anything (yet). Then "locate the mullion heater leads at the left side of the cabinet and connect to the back and white leads". Then Wrap vinyl sleeve with electrical tape to seal the slit. OOOOOKAY.... I found the unconnected leads in the harness that goes to the ice maker water valve. They have male bullet style plugs and clips (a little corroded) but I cannot find anywhere to connect them... Is left side of the cabinet as viewed from the front or back? The main harness is on the left rear area. And if I make the slit long enough (which is very difficult, then the wires could make it back there. If I only could find where the mullion heater's connectors come out. Of course the wiring diagram only shows the mullion wiring as optional and not connected to anything. I really do not want to lay this 500lb (at least) beast on it's side. It already fell on me and my daughter, but a countertop and pallets save us. This refer has been nothing but a pain to deal with ever since I bought in 2001. I don't want to get rid of it, since it has custom wood panels that go with our kitchen, and I fell on hard times (due to illness) and cannot afford a new one. It fixed many things on it already. Such as the problem where the relays weren't soldered properly onto the main logic board, which fixed the non-defrosting problem and the freezer fan not working. But now the drain hole plugs with ice. So I read that many freezers have a 5W to 20W heater that runs all the time to keep the hole from freezing. Especially if water gets in the insulation under the floor of the freezer. Anyway, can anyone tell me how to find the connections to the mullion heater? Is it in the outside-rear channel up back of the refer? it's pop-riveted on. Thanks! Scott
