Ice maker not making ice


yes, there is 2 lines, one for the water and the other for the ice. you can take the back lower panel behind the frige and take a look at the water line coming from the house where it connects to the frige, you can disconet the line that goes to the freezer, and put the line inside of a container of about 1 litter, and waite for about 30 minutes it at to have some water inside just enough to fill the ice maker. if you donot get any water, replace that valve.

Buzzing intermittent


It sounds like the ice maker. If you don't have the water hooked up, and the ice sensor bar is in the down position, the ice maker assembly will attempt to make ice continuously.
Solution is easy: raise the ice sensor bar until it clicks in the up position. It will lock in this position, and the ice maker will not cycle anymore.

Ice maker and frige


A COMMON FAILURE FOR THE WHIRLPOOL REFRIGERATORS THAT CAUSE NO COOLING IN THE FREEZER IS A BAD RELAY ON THE COMPRESSOR.
LISTEN CLOSELY FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES TO THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR. IF YOU HEAR A CLICK AND THE COMPRESSOR HUMS AND THEN CLICKS AGAIN AND SHUTS OFF THE COMPRESSOR, THE RELAY IS MOST LIKELY BAD. ABOUT A 40 DOLLAR COMPONENT.
ALSO, CHECK THE FREEZER BACK WALL. IF IT IS FROSTED UP, THERE IS A FAILURE OF THE DEFROST CYCLE. YOU WOULD HAVE TO CHECK THREE COMPONENTS. THE DEFROST CONTROL, HEATER, AND BI-METAL.

Re: Dispensing water and Ice


the water valve is located behind the frige, remove the lower back panel and follow the water line from the house to the frige as that line meets the frige that's the valve that may be bad,but before you change it, you can test it, remove one of the 2 lines that goes to the side of the frige and push the switch to get some water, water should come from back there, if not re move the other line, it meant that the first line belong to the ice maker, try the other one now, it should give you water. if not replace the valve.

Amana Distinction side by side


When you say flows out of the bottom do you mean on the floor of the kitchen? Not cooling can be a sealed system problem if it happens in both fridge and freezer. The frost build up could be due to low refrigerant levels in the system. If possible, turn off the frige for a few days with the doors open to thaw any problem areas. Remove the lower panel in the freezer section to view the coil area. Turn the unit back on and watch for a "white frost" pattern on those coils. The pattern should be uniform and even across the whole coil area. If the frost suddenly stops on a coil (the rest are not frosted) you likely have a leaky system and a loss of refrigerant. This would be worst case. Unit must have about 17 degrees (or colder) to make ice (with water of course.... Sort of sounds like a couple different problems at the same time.
