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.

SOURCE: amana ic6 ice maker

sounds like your ice maker is working properly and that maybe you pinched the water line when you reinstalled it back into the elbow.. is the elbow clear of any ice build up or foreighn matter that would restrict the flow of water into the ice mold tray? If so..that's your problem.. ( thaw it out or melt it and then you should be OK) Hope that helps..

SOURCE: The tubing for my Amana SRD25S5L is brittle and

If you're refering to the ice maker supply tubing, you can get ice maker hookup kits with the proper tubing and ferules at a local hardware or plumbing supply house.
Save your fittings as you pull them off to reuse what you can, you may need to replace the compression ferules on the plastic line under the compression nuts.
Be sure to pressure check for leaks before moving the refer back into position.

SOURCE: water tube to drinking water disconnected at back

if you also see wires dangling, then the water shutoff valve is missing, otherwise, my guess would be an inline water filter is missing.

It might just be a simple water line coupler, but I would look at a parts diagram to be sure, or take a peek at a similar model at an appliance store.

Why does my drinking water from the auto water dispenser smell??


In some instances when the cool water and/or ice maker is not used for some time, mold can accumulate in the tubing between the water intake and the ice maker. Once this happens, it is very difficult to eliminate. One method is to disconnect the tubing from both ends and block one end off. Then fill the tubing with bleach or half bleach and half water and let stand for just a few minutes. Then drain the bleach from the tubing and flush the tubing thoroughly. Be sure to run adequate water through the system to completely eliminate the residual odor/taste of the bleach before reconnecting.

Not making ice


Hi: Change or just remove the water filter first. As your water dispensing slowed that is a clue. If the water filter is that clogged it will cause a problem with the ice maker. Plus the water you drink is not filtered anymore. City water is being run through 2 years of crud. If you don't replace it just remove it. I hope this helps, Jeff

Mold in water dispenser tube


Your refrigerator has a filter system below the bottom and behind the kick plate. Two or three times you need to turn the water supply off to refrigerator and fill the old filter with clorox to kill the algae growing in the storage tank and after you finally get this out and purge the chlorine from system will you be able to use the ice or water to consume. I know this seams harsh but really there is very little else that can remove this without changing the whole water system. Once this is done change the filter regularly and this will help, click on link below and place your model number into the model search feature. This will give you pictures of the parts and there location. Let me know how this goes, Thanks, Sea Breeze
