Question about Amana DRS2462B Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice maker constantly revolving.

Ice maker had small leak, fixed it. Put the ice maker back in the freezer and it won't make ice. The teeth simple keep revolving slowly. They never stop at the 2:00 position. I do hear a click, but not sure if it's the solenoid or not. Could this simply be a matter of the freezer not being at 17 degrees or lower? Perhaps something blocked in the water supply tube? Any other ideas? Thanks.

    There was a leak in the tray that I fixed with some silicon adhesive. Not sure it's going to stick, but it should. It's not near any moving parts.

    As stated above, the teeth (arms or whatever) that push out the ice cubes just keeps going round and round for days. No ice, no water, no luck.

    Not sure what the temp is in the freezer, but you'd be hard pressed to get a spoon more than a half inch into the ice cream. The temp was set to 6 out of 7 for 4 days with 0 luck. It's now set at 4 out of 6. Finally lifted the bar to get the icemaker to even stop trying.

No ice


If ice is formed but will not drop just pour hot water over the cubes. Or the teeth that push out the ice are getting stuck, in that case hold down the on switch to advance the teeth manually.

Kenmore side by side ice maker not working, water does work, checked the back not a frozen line. The problem occurred when the compressor/start device was replaced in the summer. The repairman said that...


There are many things that can go wrong with a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker. Your ice maker may be leaking. It may not make any ice at all, or the ice that comes out smells or has an odd appearance. The problem may have an easy solution, or it may require a technician's expertise. The troubleshooting tips in this article will minimally make you aware of what is likely the source of the problem. You may be able to fix the problem yourself and save a bundle.

When it Won't Make Ice
1 Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
2 Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
3 Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
4 Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

Hope it help you.

Have a nice day.
