Question about Amana Refrigerators

The water filter is just dripping hardly flowing when you try and get any water. I have changed the filter, and have done all the correct prodedures when changing it, but that didn't make any difference to the flow of water. What else can I do?

    Thanks, but I think we have a bigger problem, so I need a technician to look at the fridge. Any suggestions?

Check the water pipes, one might have a kink in it that's blocking the flow. Or there's been so much lime accumulation that a pipe has been clogged. Or a valve is closed. The only way to know it for sure is to test everything : start from the pipe that connects the refrigerator to the water main and go from there up to the exit.

    If you're going to call a technician make sure he checks the entire water system, not just the pipes. And while he's there ask him to take a look at everything else, it will be cheaper to fix whatever is broken now, then later.

Water dispenser dripping


Sounds like you have a bad water valve, it is located in back of refrigerator where your water line comes in. Change that and you will stop the leaking.

I understand the correct manufacturers number for the PuriClean II water filter for your refrigerator should be UKF8001 or UKF8001AXX, that you have the correct filter, and you have plenty of water out of the dispenser when the filter is not installed. If all that information is accurate you have 30 pounds or more water pressure (although the minimum is 20 pounds the higher the pressure the better for flow will be), then I would try holding the filter under the faucet to be certain the water flows through the filter without a lot of resistance. If that checks out, I would look for a gasket or some other part from the old filter that is stuck in the filter housing.

ICE MAKER NOT WORKING


Good day!!!!


The water filter may be plugged with sediment, or you may have low water pressure. The water pressure for icemakers needs to be at least 40 psi, and up to about 120 psi for proper operation. Water filters need to be changed every six months. If you would like to test your water pressure, we have an Icemaker Water Flow Tester available from our website. This will help you to determine if the water pressure at the supply line is high enough for the icemaker to function properly. To determine if your filter is plugged, look for water both before and after the filter. It may be hard to determine if there is water flowing through the filter. Sometimes it is necessary to pull the filter out of the feed line to see if water is flowing from the exit of the filter into the refrigerator or freezer. You can do this over a bucket to catch any dripping water. Some models have a filter bypass plug to help determine if the filter is clogged. If so, you would remove the filter and replace it with the filter bypass plug. Now test your water flow.
If your refrigerator has a water dispenser, you can hold a large cup or glass under it for 20 seconds. You should have poured about 13-14 oz. of water in that 20 seconds. If the amount is less, try removing the filter and bypassing it. If you now get the 13-14 oz. of water, the filter was clogged and it's time to replace it. If not, you have low water pressure in the line, and your icemaker may not work properly.
On occasion, the water inlet tube will freeze where it enters the icemaker. This can happen because the water is dripping slowly, or the freezer is just set too cold. A hair blow dryer can be used to thaw this, but be careful around the plastic tubing. You don't want it to crack or deform. You may want to turn the thermostat up a little bit if this is a regular occurrence. If you have a constant, regular drip, you may want to invest in a new water fill valve.
Another reason that your icemaker may not be making ice is the bail arm along the side of the icemaker. This arm must be in the lowered position for the icemaker to operate. If the arm is stuck up, it has shut the unit off. This is a safety feature of the unit. Normally, if there's too much ice in the bin, the arm will get stuck in the raised position and keep any more water from entering the icemaker. You must lower the arm to begin making more ice.

I hope this solution will be helpful...

I changed my filter, PUR 4396841 and now it is vibrating when I stop dispensing water. Any suggestions? Do I have it installed correctly?


The vibration is a tiny bit of "water hammer." Previous to your filter change, the water flow was restricted, and therefore incapable of causing water hammer. Now that you've changed the filter, the flow is large enough to cause a little water hammer when you shut off the flow.
How to fix: shut off the flow SLOWLY. Water hammer is caused when the flow of water is shut down quickly. This is just as true with large flows (as in fire engine pump panels), as it is in itsy bitsy
filtered water lines & filter housings.

I have the exact same problem. I can hear the solenoid "click" but when I try and "blow" threw it I cannot. I removed the little screen filter inside where the copper pipe connects, still no luck. Not sure what the flat blade screw is for with the locking nut, other than to adjust the position of the solenoid. I checked for flow of water outside of the valve. Also my contractor hooked this up to the Hot water side of the water heater. Does anyone know if this is correct? I would think you get more corrosion on this side.

Keeps spilling over during brewing


These tanks can't actually be overfilled since all water poured in displaces the exact same amount of water coming out the spout. So, whatever amount of water you pour in, will be the same amount of water that flows to your pot minus the amount absorbed by the coffee grounds and filter.

Your problems sounds like an undersized (Non Bunn) filter, or clogged brew basket. To verify this, try pouring in only half the water for your brew cycle and wait for it to finish dripping, then pour in the rest. If no overflow has occurred, you simply have the wrong type of filter. If overflow begins again, you have a clogged brew basket, since no Bunn can flow too fast for the brew basket to keep up with it.

This is because Bunn filters are manufactured differently than generic store bought paper filters. They will flow faster, brew cleaner and stand up better than normal generic filters.
Remember, Bunn makes their OWN filters for good reason.
They made the first, best paper filters for drip coffee pots, and all others are just generic dioxin gas producing paper.

Water leaking at filter


If this is a Pure source 2 filter in the upper right hand side of fridge, Purchase an Electrolux filter bypass, P/N 241944302. This is a empty cartridge that lets water flow without water drip when filter is clogged. Fridgidaire/Electrolux made no bypass in these filters, so when clogged they leak. Plus they NEVER last more than about 30/60 days. If you use the bypass, you will need a separate filter elsewhere such as in water line under sink or behind fridge. Call me at 816-560-8545 if you need more info.
