Question about Amana ASD2326HE Side by Side Refrigerator

Amana Distinction side by side

Ice machine quit working several months ago .. water doesn't make it to the machine it just flows right out of the bottom. I've tried to trace the line into the guts of the fridge but I can't find any wetness so I cannot determine where the water is coming from. Now the freezer and fridge are not cooling. I have a build up of frost on the lower part of the freezer but it won't get cold enough to create ice cubes. I have cleaned the front and back vents to make sure dust isn't impeding air flow but that doesn't seem to be the problem either ... HELP Thanks, JHampton

    My freezer is not making ice the water is pouring from the bottom of the freezer (inside) and the below the crisper (inside) so I'm always mopping up water from the floor. I've shut off the water supply but I still have water flowing. Now, I have my bottom basket frozen all the way up on the sides with ice

When you say flows out of the bottom do you mean on the floor of the kitchen? Not cooling can be a sealed system problem if it happens in both fridge and freezer. The frost build up could be due to low refrigerant levels in the system. If possible, turn off the frige for a few days with the doors open to thaw any problem areas. Remove the lower panel in the freezer section to view the coil area. Turn the unit back on and watch for a "white frost" pattern on those coils. The pattern should be uniform and even across the whole coil area. If the frost suddenly stops on a coil (the rest are not frosted) you likely have a leaky system and a loss of refrigerant. This would be worst case. Unit must have about 17 degrees (or colder) to make ice (with water of course.... Sort of sounds like a couple different problems at the same time.

Water and ice dispenser does not work---the switch clicks when you press it but there is not response, also the ice maker just quit working


Three things could be wrong:
Solenoid switch where the water comes into the unit has gone, this control the flow of water into both the ice maker and the water dispenser.
If the switch is good and then you need to check your filters, sometimes inside the door top right. or on one of the corners on the bottom front.. You should be able to unscrew them with you hands.. make sure water is off behind unit or where ever your shut off is at.
One last thing.. check for kinks in the water line behind the unit if it was pulled out lately.

ok, what you have not told me was the temp of the ice plate. If you have an inferred thermometer now is a good time to use it. what is the Temp of the plates or ice collection try. Ice will never collect if it is not below zero C. 32F my guess is it must be below 28F. you need some kind to thermometer.

Hi, I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator model #596.76253702 that leaks water from the bottom every time the ice maker refills. The problem keeps getting worse since I purchased this product 2 years ago.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.


Ice maker water not stopping
The water inlet valve may be staying open. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it. If it does stop after trying it several times then the problem is with the ice maker.

The defrost cycle is not working. After a predetermined number of hours of compressor running time, a timer actuates the defrost cycle, which stops the compressor and turns on a heating element to melt the ice. Either the timer or heating element is not working. Also, make sure the melted ice water is actually draining and not re-freezing.

Ice maker not working


For the missing arm you should contact the company via your dealer. The water pipe must be clogged with ice and dirt preventing water to flow to the ice maker. If you have real patience, you can fix it but might take some time. Take some warm water and pour it slowly through the pipe in the opposite direction of water flow. The warmness of water will melt the ice and clear of the dirt. Sometimes it may take hours, but the time taken depends on the amount of ice in the pipe. Since this is a matter of just 2 months, i assume it won't take much time.

Ice and water don't work


This could be several reasons, water valve on back not working, thermostat in ice tray not working, heating element below ice maker not working, we just need to start with the dual water valve on back first. The side that feeds the ice maker needs the solenoid checked. I am ready to help you solve this, Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

WATER QUIT RUNNING IN DOOR


Okay. My appliance is around four years old. The first time the water quit working was about a year ago (ice cubes / dispenser was fine). I just let it go and didn't worry about it. One day months later, I found it functional again. That lasted about a month or two, then it recently quit again. Tonight, I located the water supply line coupling under the unit on the left side under the freezer door, about five inches from the hinge. I separated the coupling (push lock type) and pressed the water dispenser lever. After a few seconds, the water flowed out just fine. I re-attached the coupling, turned the freezer coldness selector to 0 (off) opened the freezer door and fetched my wife's blow dryer. I ran the dryer along the inside of the freezer door near the black door seal frrom the hinge up to the water/ice dispencer compartment. I also ran it all along the back of the dispenseer compartment to the handle side of the door as I am unsure of where the water line runs. After about ten minutes of this, I attempted to dispense water with no luck. I continued with the blow dryer until the plastic and even the door seal were very warm to the touch. I closed the door and attempted to dispense water once again, and this time it worked. I turned the coldness selector back on. This time I set the freezer to 3 and the fridge to 7. I ran several cups of water through the dispenser since it's been sitting in the line for a while before drinking any. As for the "reservoir," I don't where or if one exists, but heating up the inside of the door from hinge to dispenser worked perfectly. Hope this helps someone!

Cheers!
