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.

I have a Samsung bottom freezer top fridge RB215LASH. Water leaks from the inside back panel down under the crisper. The drain is not clogged. Their is no problem with the evaporator coils freezing...

OK, first there is only two ways water can be entering the fridge under any circumstances, one is through the Ice Maker feed line coming from your wall to the back of the fridge and into the ice maker. The other is from the ice trays themselves leaking or overflowing or the filter itself is leaking. Look at the side walls of your refrigerator, are there water streaks running down the side? Have you reset the ice maker since you did your repairs? Have you replaced the filter lately?

Usual Causes

If the water pressure is too high, the ice tray can over fill or water can splash out. You can turn the supply shutoff valve to reduce the water flow. See the diagram below. If the ice cube tray has residual pieces of ice in the bottom, remove the pieces by pressing the reset button. You may have to do this several times to clear all the ice out of the tray.

Get back to me and I know you provided a lot of information, but this is a inline water issue relating to the ice maker and not really thinking it could be anything else. So if you can give me more information about the form in which this happens, such as you find the water after the trays are filled or if this is a constant but minimal flow, large flow, we can concentrate our plan towards this are of the repairs and diagnosis. Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Have a jennair refrigerator mdl#jfi2589aes took the ice cube storage box out to fill cooler, when i put it back in the ice cube maker will not dispense ice cubes to the storage box, ice maker is making...


This usually is because the drive on the ice box is not engaged,
1. Remove the ice box and empty it into a bowl
2. Replace the ice box and turn the auger (spiral metal inside) until it locks into the drive motor
3. Ensure the box is pushed back as far as it will go
4. Put ice back into ice box
5 Try dispensing ice again
This is a common problem as there are teeth on the back of the ice box that have to align with the drive motor in the back of the freezer

Hope this helps

Ice maker is not making ice. water line is fine. with door open and flapper held shut, the sensor light is constant.

Ice maker leaks with or with out power on the far right side

The water valve (or solenoid) that only lets the water through from the water supply line when the ice maker calls for it is leaking you have to replace it.

Water inside bottom of freezer.

Water accumulation in the freezer more commonly points to the ice maker. Over a period of time, water entering the ice maker can slowly freeze to the point it provides a small restriction and prevents a portion of the water from entering the ice maker. The plastic spout/tube could also have either cracked or shifted and is allowing a small amount of water to leak into the freezer.

Ice maker only operates on crushed ice mode

There should be a solenoid behind the ice bucket that moves an metal arm on the ice bucket to move the crush teeth away for cubes or keeps the crush teeth in place for crushed cubes. Bad solenoid, bad wire at the solenoid, broken solenoid/mechanism piece, bent arm, no power from dispenser to the solenoid are -some- possible trouble makers.

Also the solenoid that controls the crush/cube function is probably frozen. First, pull out your ice bucket. On the bottom of the bucket is a long metal rod the runs all the way to the back wall of the freezer. That rod runs into a little square hole in the back of the freezer. The hole is about 1 and half inches square. Just put your finger in there and see if the solenoid plunger moves up and down easily. If it doesn't move, then it is frozen. Just hit that area with a hair dryer and it will release. If it moves easily, then make sure that the the rod on the ice bucket is seated in there properly
