Our Amana French door ice maker is clogged with ice chunk about 2-in x 6-in and we can't pull it out. The area is too small to pour hot water in onto the ice. Any suggestions?

Good day,
What you have described sounds like a defective water valve on the back bottom rear of the machine. It will need to be replaced.

Although awkward, the best way is to remove the ice maker completely and let it air dry, while the valve gets changed.

The above diagnosis is based on the fact the freezer is maintaining it's normal temperature. If for some reason the freezer thaws and then refreezes that problem would need to be addressed first.

This has nothing to do with the ice maker. The defrost drain has frozen over. Inside the freezer you will see that the whole back is a panel. Unplug the unit and gently pry at the top of this panel. It will come forward and then you can lift it out. unplug the fans and take the panel out. You will see the coils. and underneath the coils, the drain pan. Mine was completely filled with ice. I used a hair dryer to melt it and remove the large chunks. Be gentle. Use a turkey baster to remove excess water. Then pour some very hot water in to clear the drain itself.

Your defrost assembly has probably stopped working, which means that you are probably also building up ice in between the panels.

Does it have an ice maker that is not working? The only thing I can imagine it could be is the start relay, condenser fan blades hitting something in its way or the water control valve trying to open because the ice maker is telling the water valve to open. Double check the model number above your post so I will pull up the correct manual for your refrigerator. Thanks, Sea Breeze

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
