Your water solenoid is sticking. It is drawing air back through it when off then the pressure of the water is keeping it open. I would replace the solenoid valve.

SOURCE: Ice/water dispenser sticks

Something kinda frozen treat probably melted and worked it's way into you dispenser area... seen it before. That's where the "sticky" is coming from. UNPLUG THE FRIDGE! MAKE A NOTE OF HOW EVERYTHING COMES APART! Remove the drip tray (if any)and remove any screws you may find there. Now get a small flat blade screwdriver, and pry the fascia panel off the door from the BOTTOM FIRST (you may see notches under there for a screwdriver to fit into) and work your way around it gently until it comes off. Now remove the screws that are facing you to pull the control panel out. When it's out, it'll see be hooked up to the wiring harness. Look for a small brown micro-switch with either 2 or 3 terminals on it. The switch is brown, about an inch long and 3/8" thick... this is the culprit. From here you can do a couple of things. 1.) replace the sticky switch. 2.) Take the wires off of it and remove the switch completely. Then, using a moistened towel, clean it real well and let it dry completely. Then reinstall it and rebuild the dispenser area. Sounds tough, but it should take no more than 45 minutes to do.

SOURCE: ice and water dispenser not working but light on constantly

CM, there are 2 things that'd cause this. One is inexpensive, the other is not. First, check the cheap one... That rectangular rubber piece in back of your dispenser area is only a cover for a cantilever device. When you push in on this with a cup, the cantilever swivels back toward you and makes contact with a micro-switch. This switch sends power to the integrated circuit board which, in turn, performs the function you requested (cubed, crushed, water). OK... unplug your fridge. Then use your ears to diagnose this. Push the actuator pad several times in and out and listen for the tell-tale "click click" of the micro-switch. If you hear it clicking, it's good. Plug your fridge back in. Now for the expensive part. If your micro-switch clicks, your dispenser control board is fried and needs to be replaced. (I'm afraid that this is the case because the board controls the light as well as all the other functions.) UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE BEFORE REPAIRING! To gain access the board, use a small flat blade screwdriver and remove the fascia panel starting at the bottom first. Just begin prying it gently off. Then remove the screws that are holding the board assy in place and gently pull it out. Take note of all of the wiring so you can re-install it correctly. The board number you need is #61005274. Unfortunately, it lists for about $100. A professional repairman would charge you over $200 for the repair, so you're actually saving money here! BTW, we recommend using a Belkin Surge protector for all appliances that utilize electronic controls. (you wouldn't plug you computer directly into a wall outlet, would you?) We regularly use these... http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/(a1q3xi45sxgfbzm0qejhei55)/ProductDetails.aspx?SKU=3115672

SOURCE: Amana fridge water filter squealing

I would suggest that you put the new water filter back in and try dispensing water for about ten minutes. If there is still a high pitched noise then you could try bleeding the water line at different points along the water circuit (with control over the incoming supply). The fact that you are forcing water through the tank should normally resolve any air locks. The water filter could also be bled of air. Hope this is of some help.

Why does it continue to spit and sputter going uphill?


Spit and sputter can happen because of not enough fuel or air. last thing to check for fuel is the fuel pressure regulator. On the air side would be the the air filter(filthy) or catalytic converters(clogged). on the mechanical side, Could be bad rings, burnt valves. Compression test would find this.
