Sherman usually (not always) the problem is a frozen delivery spout coming in back of the freezer. look where your ice maker and on the back wall and up behind that you will see the delivery spout area. The water valve may be bad or not opening also but it most likely has 2 solenoids 1 for water in the door and 1 for the ice maker. If you have checked and have the ability turn off the water and reverse the water inlet lines on the water valve. This is just to make sure the water passage is open. Hit the cold water cupplunger then look and see if you have water that cam into the ice maker if not your problem is in the valve or the line to the ice maker. Next hit the same plunger with the water line disconnected if you have water then your problem is in the freezer delivery and needs defrosting and cleaning if its a plastic spout it probably has lime covering it inside and freezes over or the water valve is leaking by a little and refreezing. with the water line off yuo will quickly know if its leaking by. and cover with a towel to prevent a mess if it sprays out when you try the plunger. If it still dosnt work try to check the coil on the water valve both coils should read about the same. If after all this works and you have water everyplace (thats why I said use the towel) the problem is in the ice maker circut. Either it is the main power, the ice maker motor its self, or or most likely its the fill valve switch.In any case if you purchase a new replacement Ice amker head all this will be new.OR Either replace the switch if it checks open or if its loose or there are broken parts. It requires a cam to open and close the switch so it only opens for about 5 to 15 seconds. .Hope this helps you let me know if I need to tell you more. Rate me accordingly please and Good luck.

Water and ice work intermittently. Is it freezing up? what position should the wire device be in to work? up,or down? Is that an on/off switch? It has had water,and made ice,but now there is no water...


The ice maker arm should be down for the ice maker to operate. How was the water dispenser flow rate when it did work? You may have a restricted filter, a frozen water reservoir (located behind crispers in fridge) or possibly a bad valve (at the back of the fridge where water connects) . You should also check your shut-off where your water connects, saddle valve type connections are prone to restrictions- try closing and opening it a few times.
Hope this helps!.

Amana SBD21VE No water to ice maker


your water line to the fridge is most likely leaking. You should turn it off right away. The line turn off is either behind the fridge or under sink. sometimes its in basement. The line is very easy to replace. You can get the plastic ones at home centers for under 5 bucks.
