Question about Amana ARS9265B Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

No ice or water from dispenser

Hi - I have an Amana side by side (ARS9167AW). I replaced the water filter, reset the water filter light and now neither the water or the ice dispenser work. They worked fine before I replaced the filter. Help? Is the filter bad? Did a relay switch go? Can I fix it myself? thanks, kathryn

Re: No ice or water from dispenser

Kathryn, make sure you do not have the dispenser locked out. Press and hold the lock button for 3 seconds. If you have a green light above the pad this indicates lock. You are going to have to hold the water lever for a while until all the air in the new filter is purged. back.

Trying to reset filer light after changing filter-locked up

Here is a link to the manual for your unit. Copy paste into your browser.

Page 20 shows how to unlock the dispenser and reset the filter light and I have pasted them here.

There are products at Lowes or Home Depot near the appliance for odor removal, I like to put a bowl of cotton balls on a couple of shelves, soak the cotton in vanilla once a day. The odors will be gone in a couple of days.

This feature prevents ice or water from
being dispensed.
To lock dispenser:
➢ Press and hold DISPENSER LOCK
button for 3 seconds. A green
indicator light above button confirms
dispenser is locked.
To unlock dispenser:
➢ Hold DISPENSER LOCK button for 3
seconds. Green indicator light above
button will go out.

Filter reset

The filter status indicator light
serves as a reminder to replace the
water filter. A green light indicates that
the filter is in good condition. A red light
indicates the filter should be changed.
Once light turns red, it will remain red
until function is reset.
To reset indicator:
➢ Press and hold both DISPENSER
LOCK and WATER buttons
simultaneously for 4 seconds. The
green filter status indicator light will
flash 3 times when the function has
successfully reset.

Slow water flow from water dispenser

Check water supply make sure you have ample water and not a kinked connection from supply. It is a common failure on Amana to have a defective Filter/Head assembly.

Water dispenser not working

The filter you installed was empty, You will need to purge the air from the system. Simply hold a glass in the dispenser with water selected until water flows.

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating
