Question about Amana SXD524VW Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Icemaker works; water dispenser not

The Icemaker works & dispenses fine; water dispenser worked initially, then took :30, then longer and longer to dispense, then quit. No freezing in water line, as I ran a string trimmer line up and out the back. Ideas?

    Thanks for your quick response!

    How do I get access to this value - is it something a professional repairman has to do, or could I get to it?

    Thanks. Is it helpful to know that the water dispenser made no noise at all during the dispensing delay, then I heard a click, heard a motor run and the water would come out full-stream?

    there are 1 or 2 dual coil solenoid valves in the back a primary and a secondary or just a primary, I would bet anything that the valve is clogged with debris or the valve isn't opening enough to allow water to flow through which would explain the delayed fill time

You can get to it, it is just a matter of figuring which valve has gone bad. You may need to disconnect different lines and actuate the water dispenser to see if water comes out of the valve. You gain access to the valves from behind the machine by removing the access panel that is at the bottom

    You should hear a hum and a click of the solenoid. It is possible that you may even have a bad micro switch behind the actuator where you put your glass. Make sure that the coils are getting 120 volts when you call for water

Hello,

Does water dispense through the dispenser ok in the door dispenser??

If yes wate r dispenses through the door ok the problem is going to be with the icemaker itself and its not sending power to the water valve when its supposed to fill so it could make the ice

If water doesnt dispense through the door check that water pressure into valve is sufficent..even if water does dispense what seems to be ok check first that thier is good water pressure into the valve before replacing icemaker

Water not going into icemaker. Water dispenser works fine.


Check the water valve at the back of the fridge if present.

Even if you used blowdryer, ensure that linse are not frozen by performing a complete defrost.

Disconnect water lines from icemaker, and blow with compressor if the above did not work.

Ice/Water Dispenser in Freezer door not working when you press the lever. Also the light dims when lever is pressed. Icemaker working fine.


Sounds like a frozen waterline. I fixed mine by leaving the light on the dispenser on. It took about 6 hrs, but the little heat from the light bulb was enough to defrost the water line.

New Kenmore Elite ice dispenser not working but water is


Should be no longer than 24hrs. Is the freezer good and cold.. has to reach a certain temp before icemaker activates. Might take little longer if you put a lot of warm things in freezer or refrig. when you made the change. Is there any water or ice in the icemaker itself? Water may not be getting to icemaker call them back out if it dont work soon thats what warrantys for :0)
