Question about Amana ARB2257C Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Our ice maker is making ice but it becomes one big block in the tray. I think there must be a water drip, so that after the ice is made and water is dripping over it then it freezes and thus becomes one unmanageable block.

there is a screw adjustment that accounts for the variations in water pressure among various installations. Without one, problems such as yours will be widespread. Pry open the plastic cover over the icemaker. Look for a screw that has markings and/or arrows near it. I believe that turning the screw counterclockwise will decrease the amount of water allowed in. Experiment with each turn direction as necessary. You should see the amount of water fill with a flashlight. A proper fill should be about 3/4 to 7/8 filled. Never fill 100%. The cube ejectors may break then.

SOURCE: ice maker drips water
In most of theses cases the dripping is caused by the molding in the ice maker cracking and the water is wicked out. On some ice makers you can replace the complete molding but its usually easier to just replace the ice maker.

Your ice maker inlet valve has gone bad.
Turn the ice maker off by lifting the wire that s on the side of the ice maker up until you feel it click then it should stay in the up position. This is off. Do not use your ice dispenser as it can be damaged by the clumped ice and leave the ice maker off as well until you replace that valve. The part number you need is 67005154.
To replace the valve you will need to trace your water line from the valve to the nearest cutoff. Turn the water supply valve off. You will also need a towel to catch the water that comes out of the lines and you will need to UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR so you don't get shocked. Then replace the valve. Turn the water on and look carefully for a leak. What I do is wipe my fingertip around all the joints a few times drying them each time til I get a few dry wipes. Turn the ice maker on and again look for leaks after the water cycles in. If all the joints are dry after you should be good to go.
Thanks for asking.

There is a small set screw that you can adjust to control the inlet
valve. Take off the front cover and look for the adjusting screw on the
side panel. It usually has arrows indicating it if for adjusting.
