Good day,
You'll need to start from he beginning and follow thru. It should solve your problem. It is important that the feezer temperature is normal. Any temperature above 14 degrees will automatically lock out the ice maker, and even at 14 degrees the production would be pathetic. It should be between 0 an 5 degrees.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

Amanda side by side refrigerator ice descender making clicking noise no water hooked up annoying


Even though there is no water connected, you will probably have to turn the ice maker unit to OFF so it stops trying to harvest... If you are never going to use it, simply remove it by taking out the one 1/4" nut screw on the bottom and the two screws above the unit, then unclip the wire harness. It will give you more room and cease the endless clicking... Amana Ice Maker Assembly D7824706Q

Amana bottom freezer, model abc2037dts, there is a motor noise that goes on for 8 seconds then shuts off, then a few clunks for 2 seconds


Even if you do not have the water hooked up for the dispenser and ice maker, the fridge still makes the sound as if it is filling up the ice maker. If you lift the metal arm beside the ice maker, the sound stops happening because it thinks that the ice bucket is full.

AMANA ARB2257C ice maker makes noise/doesn't eject cubes into bin


Hi: First off make sure the fridge is level. Is It too high in front? Making the rear of the icemaker overflow and jam? Also make sure the freezer section is a zero degrees, not just frozen. Ice cream should be rock hard. I hope this helps you avoid calling service. Thank You, Jeff
