SOURCE: Amana French Door Bottom Freezer

see if there is any ice caught within the ice maker itself preventing proper cycling of the ice maker. if not pop off the white cover to the ice maker(theres small **** in the cover on bottom right corner of white cover to insert a ***** driver and twist the cover will pop off. look into the center of the main plastic gear, there should be 2 "tabs" holding that gear in place . as if you were to push gear on and the tabs would keep it in place.( reason i mention that it is/was a problem with the ice makers hat the gear would break and it was very noticeable looking into the center gear).if not, theres a detailed trouble shooter for the ice maker behind the kickplate(maybe taped up under front corner under cabinet) it will tell you points to check for power and jump out if necessary

Odds are due to the fact the ice maker was left on for an extended time with a full tray of ice the mechanisms froze. You can take a hand held hair dryer and defrost the parts, just be careful not to get too over zealous and melt the plastic parts. It should only take a few minutes to defrost.

To avoid this problem from occurring again, I turn the ice maker off when the ice tray is full.

Regards,

Ann

Lights would not go off on my Kenmore Elite model #79577253601. light housing melted. Replaced housing and lights and again will not go off.


The door switch controls the light, and it should turn off power when the switch is depressed by the door. If it does not, it needs to be replaced.
