SOURCE: have Amana side-by-side about 14 yrs old. The icemaker overfills ice tray by about 8oz of water? Please help!

Unless someone has made a water level adjustment there is,
Only one repair. Replace the ice maker.
If someone has made a water level adjustment you can try this.
Remove the ice maker plastic cover. Locate the water level screw adjust it to a minimum setting and try it there.
If that does not correct the problem, replace the ice maker.

SOURCE: Amana side by side icemaker stopped working

The icemaker is not working because the water pressure is too low. An icemaker is controlled by a timer so it has no idea how much water is in it. The water valve gets energized for about 7 seconds letting water in the icemaker, but if there is no water pressure then the icemaker will not fill.

SOURCE: Amana side by side ice maker quit. verified water

Hi andy and wlecome to Fixya. There is usually a semi white plastic line that runs up the back of your refrigerator. Here are some steps you can do to verify that the water valve is actually working
You will need an old power cord or cheap extension cord with 2 female bayonet terminals on it. (Make one if you have to.)

1. Unplug the unit.
2. gain access to the water valve and disconnect the wire terminals 2 ea from the solenoid.
3. Connect the cord you made to the solenoid making sure that the 2 terminal connections will not come off or touch together.
4. Get a bucket and gently pull the plastic line from the bulkhead connector in the upper area of the back of your unit and place it in a bucket.
5. Plug the cord into the wall outlet and HOPE that water flows into the bucket.

If the water does NOT flow then the water valve is clogged and will need cleaned or replaced. Many of these water valves have a hose type inlet connector fitting from the water SOURCE. Before attempting to remove any water lines turn the water source OFF. That fitting can be removed and you can check for a clogged screen.

Just remember to remove your test cord and re-connect the chassis harness to the solenoid when your done. Also put the plastic line on the back of the unit back into the bulkhead connector.

If you have water flow thru the line then the bulkhead connector fitting to the icemaker is froze up and you can thaw that out with a hair dryer (quickly) or a fan (Slower) with the unit unplugged.

This should give you some direction on what to do. Best of luck!

SOURCE: I have an Amana Side by Side Refrigerator with an icemaker and water dispenser. I don't have a water line to hook up to the refrigerator. Is there an on/off switch for the icemaker?

There should be a stop control near the icemaker where it collects ice in the tray. It should be an L-shaped lever. move it to the stop position.

the fuse for the i/m is actually in the wiring harness that plugs into the icemaker. if the model is correct the icemaker goes across the back of the freezer. when you installed the icemaker on one of the wires (i think red wire) there is a black "pill" looking thing. this is the fuse.

attempt to pry off the plastic cover over the ice-maker (or look for screws). You should see at least one screw adjustment and clockwise turn is more water.
