SOURCE: Ice maker not working on Amana Side by Side refrigerator

On most Amana cabinets the water supply for the water and ice are from two solenoid valves. The water coming in goes to a double water solenoid valve splitting the incoming water so the fact there is water coming through as chilled water is not verifying that there is water supply for the ice maker. If technically minded you could locate this valve (normally at the back rhs ; compressor section) and try switching the supplies to check the solenoid valve. If you have water coming through then it may well be the icemaker module not asking for the water supply. As the simplest first step I would try defrosting the whole machine overnight and see if there is an improvement. I do know that checking the module is time expensive and would really need to be done by an engineer or alternatively replace this item. Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water

Either your water tank in the fridge froze up, the waterline that goes up the freezer door from the bottom hinge froze, or the switch that your glass hits is damaged. Do you hear any humming or noises when you put your glass up to get water?

Have you checked if water is comming out the tubing before hookup? A valve may be close...

SOURCE: no water to ice maker

  • The water line that's attached to the back of the refrigerator. Make sure you have good water flow. If the flow is poor, repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water.

  • The water-inlet valve. Replace it if it has failed.

    What does the tubing from the ice maker water valve go into when you feed into the funnel of the ice maker?

    There is probably Ice forming in the end of the water line. I fought this battle for a long time. Then I found the answer. The Freezer temperature is probably too cold. I have read that the temperature must be set to between 0 and 4 degrees. WRONG. It should be colder than 10 degrees and I have found best results with the freezer set to 6 or 8 degrees on the control panel. To test this. Take a blow dryer and heat up the area where the water comes into the icemaker. Use caution it is possible to melt some of the plastic in that area. Then, set the freezer temp to 6 or 8 degrees. It will probably work fine.

    The ice maker quit working, and now the water is still flowing into the ice maker and into the ice holding tray. How do I turn the water off. I check the back water pipe and there is no cut off valve.

    There must be a sink or hot water heater in the area . You must search for the cut off
    There is no other way. You have to find where the line coming out of the wall goes to. Then
    you will find a cutoff. If there is not one then you have to cutoff house water and install one behind freezer

    This is for the defective icemaker:

    NOTE: This
    is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
    But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
    Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
    This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
    The ref. temp should be about 33-35
    The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
    The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
    The icemaker is 110v
    See if water is in icemaker.
    Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
    If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
    attaches to water line out of wall)
    If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
    If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
    First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
    It moves air to the ref from the freezer
    Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
    Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
    the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
    Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
    is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
    Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
    There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
    Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
    Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
    Clean condenser coils underneath

    Ice maker not working


    There is a tub that goes through the back of the freezer wall into the ice maker. Sometimes this tube will freeze shut and needs to be thawed out.

    The water fill tube will freeze shut from low water pressure. Ether from a bad water valve or low pressure to the refrigerator itself.

    Pull the refrigerator out and remove the tube from the back wall to check it.

    Also note that,

    Sounds like the thermistor is bad in the ice maker itself, and there are 3 more micro switches, and some other things in there too, just easier too replace ice maker than parts for it.

    If it turns out to be the ice maker, look on the tag in the ref. side, which list the model number and serial number. look @ bottom of that tag, it will give you a model number for the ice maker kit you need.

    Good luck and hope this helpout......

    Ice Maker Not working

    three things, frozen tube, deffective water valve ine maker issue
    step 1 remove the rear cover of the ref down at the compressor
    the water valve will be on the right side held in place with 2 1/4 inch screws
    slide the valve out of the ref
    the water lines connected to the valve for the water in the door and the ice maker are held in place by a retaining ring to remove the line push in on the white retaining ring and pull the ice maker line out, blow through the line into the icemaker if you can it is not the problem

    with the line to the icemaker still disconneced reverse the wiring at the water valve, the connections are different is size and all that you need to do is touch the connectors on the valve while someone depresses the water in the door if water comes out the valve is good

    the problem if the other tests are good is a faulty ice maker
