Question about Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

2 Answers


I have an Amana B2QORBL. It has the IC6 Ice Maker. I recently purchased the refrigerator from someone I know. The ice maker was never connected to a water line. I connected it to a water line several hours ago. So far, no ice. No water is coming into the ice maker. Please help. Thanks, George

Re: NO ICE - IC6

Mine was slow-to-none in ice making for a couple of years. One day for the first time I used the built in water dispenser. The long copper line feeding water was full of air gaps. After I bled that out, it has been perfect ever since.

Re: NO ICE - IC6

George, the ice maker will cycle about every 2.5 hours. Sometimes it takes a couple cycles to prime the lines. You can remove the white cover of the ice maker. On the module you will see two ports, one marked L and another marked V on the left side. Take a insulated jumper wire and jump these two terminals. You are now sending 120V to the valve. See if the water starts coming in. Also make sure the bailing arm is down. back.

Ic6 ice maker

Some models like yours came with a defrost control board and others came with a defrost timer. They should be found inside the fresh food compartment and behind the temperature control panel. You will need to inspect and let me know which you have. Unplug first. If the control board looks or does not look burned it could be bad. The timer can be turned clockwise until compressor stops and should remain stopped for about 25 minutes. and then turn itself back on. If these look good then we need to remove the rear panel inside the freezer and test the defrost element with one wire disconnected to check for continuity. Just to be sure the element has not burned out. The defrost thermostat is connected to the defrost element and will have open contacts inside it above 50 degrees.

Ice cubes taste funny; cleaning the cube box, and using box of baking soda in freezer has not helped; model# BG20T2W, ice maker IC6

I've experienced this before, and have two solutions that helped. One is, boiling the water prior to putting them into the ice tray. And two, you can fill up your ice tray and then wrap it with aluminum foil. I've heard saran clear wrap also works, but I've used aluminum tin foil - and it helped. I hope this works for you. I've tried both of these solutions, and it made a difference. So I hope it works for you. Good Luck!

Ice cube from icemaker have recently had a bad taste. Filter to service? Amana Mod BG20T2W Ice maker IC6

Bad taste or odor from ice cubes most likely a filter problem. If filter has not been changed for at least 6 months, that is where I would start.

Water leak from ice maker

The fill line internal to the freezer is likely frozen up from the elbow inward.. When the icemaker calls for fill...pressure builds up on the plastic tubing causing it to pop out of the elbow. Check the tube inside the freezer by removing icemaker and running a long thin screwdriver or a rigid wire up into the tube until you feel ice or the plastic elbow outside.

Clear ice, if present, by squeezing hot water in from freezer side with turkey baster until cleared and water comes out back.

No water comes automatically to the ice maker

What you need is a new ice maker the front gear is not engaging the contacts, you can buy the front module only ( what u put the wire in to on the l & v contact ) but a whole new ice maker assy is the same price.

Amana ic6 ice maker

sounds like your ice maker is working properly and that maybe you pinched the water line when you reinstalled it back into the elbow.. is the elbow clear of any ice build up or foreighn matter that would restrict the flow of water into the ice mold tray? If so..that's your problem.. ( thaw it out or melt it and then you should be OK) Hope that helps..
