IF THE ICE MAKER IS OVERFLOWING, THE ADJUSTMENT SCREW WON'T HELP. ON MODULAR ICE MAKERS, THE BIG
WHITE GEAR ON THE FRONT BEHIND THE COVER HAS CIRCUIT TRACES ON ITS BACKSIDE THAT WILL ARC, BURNING THE PLASTIC GEAR, BRIDGING THE FILL CIRCUIT WITH ANOTHER TRACE, MORE THAN DOUBLING THE FILL TIME. THE MODULE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. (GEAR IS NOT AVAILABLE BY ITSELF).THE MODULE IS THE SQUARE PLASTIC ASSEMBLY MOUNTED TO THE FRONT OF THE ICE MAKER WITH THREE SCREWS. INCLUDES THE MOTOR.

My ice freezes as a block when dispensed into ice tray


There are water level adjustment screws behind the plastic cover of the ice maker to adjust the water level when it refills after dumping a tray of ice. When there is to high of a water level it spills over onto the cubes freezing them into a big block. Try to adjust the level of water. There is a arrow which tells you which way to turn the screw to get a smaller fill fixing the problem.

The overfilling is most likely caused by defective water control valve on the ice maker side. The replacement for your model is a=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve

Too much water dispenses to ice maker


The adjustment is going to be located on the ice maker its self, on the big white part. It's more than likely going to be concealed by a plastic tab. Keep in mind that the water valve could be sticking to. Adjusting the water fill amount could result in no ice or a flooded fridge. Keep that in mind

Ice Maker Overfills With Water


Ice maker has adjustment on right side of power head. If ice maker is inside on upper left, you can remove white cover from it and the adjusting screw in on right. Turning counter-clockwise will decrease fill by 1/2 to 3/4 of ounce. Sounds like a small amount, but ice make only uses 4 ounces per fill. If this does not fix, try replacing fill valve. If ice maker ice bin is in the freezer door, you have to remove cover to ice maker in the top of freezer. Ice maker is screwed into top of freezer and need to be removed to take off cover to adjuster screw. same procedure for reducing water flow time as above.

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.

Ice maker water level too high


generally, there is a screw adjustment for this. usually, turning it clockwise sends more water during fill period (makes period longer). try it and adjust clockwise or counter-clockwise as necessary. Now finding the screw...try prying (or unscrewing) off the plastic cover over what appears to be the ice-maker unit (may also be on back side of frig.
