Where do I find the fuse feeding the icemaker? I don't have power to a newly installed icemaker. My diagram on the rear of the cabinet shows a fuse. I can't find it anywhere in the rear of the cabinet.

Re: SCD25TW Amana 1998
The fuse for the i/m is actually in the wiring harness that plugs into the icemaker. if the model is correct the icemaker goes across the back of the freezer. when you installed the icemaker on one of the wires (i think red wire) there is a black "pill" looking thing. this is the fuse.

Ice makers can be purchased inexpensively on ebay for about 45 dollars.
Otherwise the hassle can be caused by the solenoids feeding the unit water, the icemaker thermostat, heater element, cam motor, cam sequence, icemaker "off" switch, etc. Also check to make sure that the water line feeding refrigerator is working!
The icemaker has a plug on the back of it,by removing the screw from the bottom support bracket and then then 2 from the top of it the icemaker could be removed from the freezer wall so it could be unplugged.
Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.The evaporator is located on the bottom half and there are high side line running through the walls.I would not take the chance.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..
The Amana with model number SCD25TW does not have a water filter. You would have to install an in-line filter on the water supply line if you want to filter the water. If your talking about the model number ARS266ZBS, then open the refrigerator door and look at the top right hand side. You should see a filter housing with a tab to release. Once released you have to remove the filter from the housing to replace it. When finished be sure to run about a gallon through the dispenser, to flush any air out of the system.
I have had a similar problem several times. What I have found is that the ice tray coating has begun to flake off. Then, the ice sticks or partially dumps. Next more ice builds up and when the valve opens the water runs over the partially emptied tray and spills into the bin making "icebergs". The remedy is to replace the tray or if that is not possible, then, the whole icemaker. In fact, I have one down stairs to put in tomorrow. They don't seem to last more than about 4 years or so.
Icemaker must be at 28 degrees to make ice. The harness supplying the power should have 120 volts there at all times, and the icemaker itself is the device that switches the power off and on once all requirements are met. Your diagram for the fridge is on the rear service panel, or in a packet on the insisde rear..accordianman
It sounds like you have covered all the primary troubleshooting checks. There is only one thing I can think of at this point.
Check the voltage coming to the water valve during the icemaker cycle. The power to the valve is decreased by the resistence of the icemaker heater from 120 volts down to about 108 volts. It is not uncommon to have a valve that will open when you put 120 volts to it, as you do when you switch solenoids, but not open at the decreased voltage when it goes through the icemaker circuit.
If you are getting voltage to the valve when it cycles, and you know for sure the water line to the icemaker is clear, then you will need to replace the valve.
Post back and let me know what you find.
