1) Check the filler tube which allows water to enter the dispenser through the back wall of the freezer. This tube may be frozen inside. You can pull the tube out gently and clear it.

2) The inlet valve may be faulty/blocked. Where the water connects to the water valves behind the fridge, try to swap the plugs around from the one valve to the other. They should be colour coded. Then try dispensing water. If water runs into the ice-maker then the ice maker valve is faulty/blocked.

Water and ice dispenser does not work---the switch clicks when you press it but there is not response, also the ice maker just quit working


Three things could be wrong:
Solenoid switch where the water comes into the unit has gone, this control the flow of water into both the ice maker and the water dispenser.
If the switch is good and then you need to check your filters, sometimes inside the door top right. or on one of the corners on the bottom front.. You should be able to unscrew them with you hands.. make sure water is off behind unit or where ever your shut off is at.
One last thing.. check for kinks in the water line behind the unit if it was pulled out lately.

I have an Amanda double Door refrigerator with an ice & water dispenser. The ice machine unit's dose not dispense ice cubes,


If the unit is making ice and the water will work from the door but the does not dispense, you will need to replace the "auger motor". Here is the part to order.

Will not dispense ice


commonly what you will find on that model is the main control board on the back of the unit is the source of your issue, it begins like a computer virus where the unit will render the water in the door feature useless, next goes the ice delivery sys, then the unit does not defrost properly causing cooling issues. But before running out and getting a new control board go by this check list first: 1) make sure your ice bucket is properly seeded, 2) make sure the ice in the bottom of the bucket is not melted together if so empty good ice in seperate container and put back in freezer quickly to avoid melting then run hot water in ice bucket to melt remaining bad ice afterwards completely dry ice bucket and put good ice back in and see if it works properly, 3) make sure the auger mtr is not seized due to door being left open and humidity freezing in mtr gear.

Hi, I have had a similar situation. In my case the filter needed to be replaced. Otherwise the water solenoid is bad or clogged. And check the water supply valve. Best of luck. , Tim

Icemaker works fine, only dispenses water


make sure that the ice shoot is not clogged up with ice or the in the ice basket where the ice goes through. Sometimes the ice can be stuck together and jam and nothing will come out.

Ice won't dispense, no power to water light


I would check hte wire harness leadngto the door under hte freezer hinge. itll be wrapped in a black web like covering. Just under hte unit itself follow ht ewire and unplug hte harness. then carfully cut hte black webbing and inspect wires. there tends ot be apinch point there and the wires will sheer from one another, . if so there is no replcing hte harness, the door would have to be replaced at a cost of nealry $600. not enough room for a wire nut, but hav had sucess using stright inline bullet style connector, or others have sucessfully soldered connections back in place

No ice through dispenser


When you operate the ice dispenser lever, you should be able to hear a little click from a micro-switch that then switches the auger motor and the light on and also opens the flap. If you cannot hear this small click, then the micro-switch is faulty. The ice dispenser only works when the freezer door is closed, so you could also inspect the door light/fan switch for proper operation.

Ice dispenser not working


Scorpio, remove the ice bin itself, dump the ice and see if you can move the bin auger by hand by turning the actuator in the rear. If the bin is ok, with the door open and the door switch held in see if the auger motor is turning when pressing the ice lever. If it's not turning the next logical step is to see whether the auger motor is getting voltage when calling for ice. Make sure the door switch is closed. The part number for the auger motor on the posted model is wr60x0202. Hope this gets you going..Catriver.
