Question about Amana ASD2326HE Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water in door takes over a minute to BEGIN flowing.

When I push the glass up against the lever on the door to start the water, the light comes on and I can hear what SEEMS to be a motor running but it takes over a minute for the water to even BEGIN to flow. When the water does start to flow it comes out at the normal speed. What do I need to do (short of calling the repair man) to get this fixed? Thanks, Chris

    I had the same problem.... Until just one day the water quit working... Always thought it was hard water build up blocking the waterline.... Come to find out several years later all it was, was the dual water valve that had gone bad... I guess they have a censor in them that will either lock open or lock shut.... Mine was locked shut... When I tried to fix the valve myself, by opening it up and blowing air threw it, I locked it open and when I conected it back up to the fridge water was coming out of the door uncontrolably. So I ordered a new water valve.. Replace it myself... Works great now.... Hope this helps...

HOW TO HOOK UP AND START THE ICE MAKER ON JSI_23


Good Morning Le Morrer,

I see that you are trying to hook up and start the ice maker on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS3R5EMB.

To connect Water supply Line to ice Maker inlet valve:
1 Disconnect your refrigerator from the electric power source.
2 Place the end of water supply line into sink or bucket. Turn ON water supply and flush supply line until water is clear. Turn OFF water supply at shutoff valve.
3 Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet and discard cap.
4 If you use copper tubing - Slide brass compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve) onto water supply line. Push water supply line into water valve inlet as far as it will go (1/4 inch/6.4mm). Slide ferrule (sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
If you use stainless steel tubing - The nut and ferrule are already assembled on the tubing. Slide compression nut onto valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
5 With steel clamp and screw, secure water supply line (copper tubing only) to rear panel of refrigerator as shown.
6 Coil excess water supply line (copper tubing only) about 2 and 1/2 turns behind refrigerator and arrange coils so they do not vibrate or wear against any other surface.
7 Turn ON the water supply at shutoff valve and tighten any connections that leak.
8 Reconnect your refrigerator to electrical power source.
9 To turn the ice maker on, lower wire signal arm (side mounted) or set the ice maker's ON/Off power switch to the "I" position (rear mounted).

After connecting the water supply, you will need to prime the water supply system.
To Prime The Water Supply System:
1 Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle.
2 Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. There will be noticeable spurts and sputters as the system pushes air out through the system and dispenser nozzle. This is normal. This may take about 1 and 1/2 minutes.
3 Continue dispensing water for about 3 minutes to flush the system of any air and impurities. Empty the glass as needed.


The water dispenser has a built-in device that shuts off the water flow after 3 minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

No water from the water dispenser.


a new refrigerator has a water resevoir that has to fill up. you have to hold the water dispenser down for a minute or so to allow this resevoir to fill.

if you have done this already, then you probably have a bad water valve.

Water dispenser is not working


Does it make ice? If it makes Ice, then you have water to unit. If No Ice and No Water, check water supply. Otherwise, you could have a bad water valve. Remove valve and the line coming off of valve to water reservoir try to dispense water and if valve is good you should have water coming from valve. (have a bucket or bowl handy to catch water).

Everything seems to work, door locks, but water won't flow


Check the water solenoid valve, it may have failed. A quick test is to use hot wash rather than cold wash. If the hot water works, then your cold water valve has failed.

Water dispenser will come on at random times


are you talking about the lever where you put your glass to get water or the ice compartment if it where you put your glass to get water it could be that if the pressure is not strong enough to close the valve after you have taken a glass of water or a defective solenoid vavle thanks from gilles

Ice maker does not make ice and the in-door water is not working properly - it keeps running.


the water in the door problem after you fill up your cup with water it keeps running all over the floor.. it sounds like its a stuck contact on a micro switch inside the door compartment. that lever you are pushing your glass onto is atached to a little switch and if the contacts stay closed (like when a glass is pushing on it) the machine thinks "hey he still wants water". next time it does that try pushing on the spot you put the glass onto a couple of time to see if it stops the water. if so it most likely is the switch. to confirm that is the case you will have to open the plastic moulding from the fridge door to gain access to the switch.( always unplug any electricall device before openning to ensure your hair doesnt end up standing striaght up like a punk rocker) you will know which switch is the one you want to check by depressing the water lever on the front. Ohm check the switch for continuity to see if it gives you proper readings or it is in fact a bunk switch. it also could be a mechanical problem as the lever once unpressed is not opening the switch back up once the glass is removed but that is not as likely unless you are ramming the glass into the water dispensor
hope it helps

I changed the water filter but the water still comes out soooo slow.


It may be the water valve located on the back of the fridge. The way you can tell is to pull the water valve off and take the hose off on the refrigerator side of the valve. Hold a glass under it to catch any water and have someone push the water lever in the door. If you have good bad water pressure there, it's probably in the valve. If not, your water bin, or water hose in the fresh food section may have ice in the line and may be frozen up. If that's the case, you'll have to thaw it out and it should correct the problem, but it will most likely happen again sometime in the future. Please let me know if you have any other questions on this topic.

ACTUATER PAD


Yes sounds like you need a new actuator pad. I had one do this this week and a new pad resolved it.

No water at the door


If the solenoid valve doesn't click anymore then it's either bad or not activating anymore. Check that the switch behind the water lever is not broken or has fallen loose inside the door panel. You may be able to put a finger up there and try to push it without using just the lever. (sometimes slamming glasses into that lever over time breaks the switch attaching pins causing the switch to fall off inside). Take the front panel off and visually check that switch itself to see if it is still being held in place. Activate it by hand (not the lever method) and see if that water solenoid valve clicks again and water flows. If you have no water to both the Ice Maker and door dispensor at all (clogged filter?) check the main water line for clogs/debris, etc. If you are making ice still then water is at least getting to the ice maker and that means only the door water valve or switch is bad. The link below may help you "see" inside with the different diagrams, etc. http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=GSL25JFP&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0
