Question about Amana ARB8057CSR Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Amana ARB8057CSR Bottom Freezer Ice Maker Arm is broken & stuck

The arm to control ice production broke where it attaches to the plastic little hole at the back part of the fridge. I looked into replacing that arm, but it looks like I need to replacet the entire ice maker unit (bummer). I delayed doing this as the arm still functioned despite not being secured at the back end. However, the arm now will not click to stay up or down and broke in the down position.............which means it WON'T STOP MAKING ICE !!!!!. I unplugged the power to the ice unit in the fridge but suspect I will fill up with water and so I will need to turn off the water to the refrigerator altogether.

Does anyone have a quick solution to this without having to replace the entire ice maker unit (which functions well)?

    I have a similar problem in that the ice maker arm broke off of the main unit - the side that I cannot see - but the machine is not making ice at this point.



    Can this be fixed if I get a mirror and see where it fits in or do I have to remore the entire unit or do I need to by a new unit

If water still continues going to the Ice Maker unplug the pair of wires on the back of the refrigerator that send water up to the ice maker. Now I see I am a little late answering your post, because I just happened to run across it. I was not here when you first posted the problem. Just let me know if you still need help, Thanks Sea Breeze

Cu2026 not making much ice


Sometimes the water inlet gets clogged. This happens a lot if u are using well water. Take the water line loose from back of fridge. fold the tube to stop water from leaking on floor if it is a plastic tube. have a bucket handy and put line in bucket let the water flow. It should come hard and fast. If not go to water valve where it pirces the main water line. check the hole and make sure it is large enough to supply the water. I had to take a drill bit and make the hole a little larger. That fixed mine. If that is not the problem then I would replace water inlet valve on the fridge.

The ice-maker shutoff arm in my LG LFX29560 doesn't move to the position to shut off making ice. It looks like ice falls on TOP of it, instead of pushing it up. I've checked it at different stages, and...


The arm should move to the up position just before dumping the next batch of ice thus preventing ice from piling up on the arm. After the ice is dumped the arm goes back down. Once the ice bin if full the arm cannot go down and this shuts the production of ice off. The arm will be supported on one or both ends. Make sure it is securely in place. Pull the arm to the up (off) position and then come back in a couple of hours to make sure no ice is being made. If it still is making ice then the control module or shutoff switch may be bad. There are 2 types of ice makers. One in which all the parts can be replaced individually and one in which there are bunched together in a control module. If there is a knob, pull that off first. Module units have holes in the face plate marked with a letter and do not have a separate shutoff switch. Component units have no holes and will have exposed gears. If you see no holes pry off the face plate. Now click this link on the procedure to test the shutoff switch on a component unit. http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/icemaker/check/shutoffswitch.php

Ice maker will not make ice cubes, only crushed ice.


take out your ice bin the look in the back of the freezer and ytou will see a small hole with a plastic sqaure actuator.hold the door switch closed and make sure the unit is selected for cubed ice then try and dispence ice if the swaure plastic acuator moves up it is working fine it shoeld drop down when you release the dispencer arm.if it dropps back down then make sure that the metal bail arm is properly inserted into the hole in the auger case when that actuator moves up this opens the small plastic door on the ice bin to allow subed ice to come out.make sure there is no ice build up on the ice bin that would stop the trap door from opening.good luck with you fridge i hope this helps you out,let me know how thing s go for you.

Ice maker is broke how do i replace need to replace whole ice maker


If its broken is probably better and cheaper to get a new one than try to fix it or pay to somebody to do it.First unppluged the fridge take the two scrwes that holds the ice maker to the freezer side wall and another one in the bottom of the ice maker once is loose you'll see a plastic plug ,pull itout and you can take the machine off and put a new one.When installing the new one make sure that the filling plastic tube is right through the hole in the back of the ice maker.

Freezer not making ice in Fridgidaire model PLH269ZDB2


There is a lever in the ice bin that detects when it is full. if that lever is locked in the"up" position, the maker stops making ice. Many times a previous owner or a shipper will turn off the icemaker this way. especially if the water to the home or freezer is turned off, so it won't keep trying to make ice.

Thunder, I ran into a couple of these, bottom freezer with the same problem, I got a hold of LG and they came out with a different bailing arm on the ice maker. Part number mfc39559901. When I received the part, it almost looked identical to the arm that was on the ice maker. I replaced it anyway and ***** got the call back, but I'm still a little miffed by it. The part is around 8.00, you can get it at repairclinic.com Catriver.

Icemaker doesn't work - no ice ejected


Krakus, there is no fuse in the dispenser assy., but there are two switches mounted on the control bracket. The posts on the brackets that hold the switches are really thin and it's possible that it broke. Therefore when you are pressing the lever you are not making the switch and sending the juice to the auger motor. Remove the dispenser cover by inserting a flat blade screw driver in the slots at the bottom. Pry out gently and the cover should pop off. Then slide it up and off. Now you will be looking at the control bracket and see the switches on the left and right side. See if the switch holder is broken. If this is the case your part number is 2183771. Not a hard job, just have to take your time. Im assuming that when you tested the auger motor you verified that the drive coupler was not broke. Catriver..post back
