Question about Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

My IC6 icemaker jammed up and did not turn off the water over night. Water filed up the ice bucket, flowed out of the freezer, and damaged the kitchen floor. When I discovered it I opened the freezer, saw ice jammed at the back of the ice tray, knocked the ice away, and the water flow stopped. What caused this?

Hi,

The reason this happens is because if the ice sits there too long it starts to merge together into one big clump. My old refrigerator also had a slight leak that would cause a drip right along the back of the cube holder, so that there would always be an icicle there. I had it serviced a couple of times and had them reduce the flow of water into the icemaker and that helped, but it would still happen to some extent. The only thing that would really work was pulling the box out a bit, using my hand to remove the icicle that formed, and then shifting all the ice around the back so that it wouldn't stick. Doing this *every* night was the only thing that worked.

My new refrigerator has the cube box right on the door when you open it so this is less of a problem. But old ice still tends to stick to itself and I will empty out the box every month or so to make sure all the ice is fresh and not sticking.

What you tried sounds like a neat idea, but I suspect it won't work. And the cubes might start to taste a little funny. The hard way is the only thing I know works for sure.
Thanks for contactng Fixya

Ice maker not making ice. There is no jam and all swithes are in the on position. I think a hose has disconnected, where can I find the hose to check it


Icemaker not working: Check the shutoff arm, the shutoffarm fails to move upward when the ice bucket is full. Check the water pressure. If thereis not enough pressure, the ice maker will not have enough water to make ice.Ifwater flow pressure is good, check solenoid valve activate and also it'scleaned. Locate your ice maker, remove theice bucket. Pull the cover off the end of the ice maker. Locate the holes "V"and "L". Take a paper clip (jump clip) and tape. Straight the clip and put tapein middle. Hold the taped side and insert the clip into "V" and "L". This sendsthe power to water valve. If water goes into ice-maker, water valve is good. Ifnotreplace solenoid. Check thefreezer temperature. The proper freezer temperature should be around 5 degrees.The warmer it is in the freezer, the more difficult it is to make ice. thanks,helpful?

Ice maker leaks or runs over Causing big chunks of ice in the drawer


It's very possible that the water inlet valve isn't cutting off completely. I had that to happen on mine.

Water leak from ice maker


The fill line internal to the freezer is likely frozen up from the elbow inward.. When the icemaker calls for fill...pressure builds up on the plastic tubing causing it to pop out of the elbow. Check the tube inside the freezer by removing icemaker and running a long thin screwdriver or a rigid wire up into the tube until you feel ice or the plastic elbow outside.

Clear ice, if present, by squeezing hot water in from freezer side with turkey baster until cleared and water comes out back.

Replaced icemaker with new one but still not working


The ice maker has a problem The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs
