Hello,

ICEMAKERS OFTEN STOP DUE TO A WARMER THAN USUAL FREEZER TEMPERATURE. MEASURE THE TEMP AND IF IT IS UNDER 10 DEGREES F. IT SHOULD BE DUMPING ICE. (IT WOULD HAVE FASTER PRODUCTION IF SET TO O DEGREES.) IF IT HAS A "NO WATER" PROBLEM YOU WILL HEAR IT HUM FROM TIME TO TIME AS IT CYCLES BUT DOESN'T DUMP ICE. THE EASY WAY TO CHECK FOR A 'NO WATER' PROBLEM IS TO TIE A 10 INCH OR SO PIECE OF LIGHT TWINE ONTO THE SHAFT AND CHECK IN A FEW HOURS TO SEE IF THE SHAFT IS WINDING THE TWINE UP ONE TURN PER CYCLE. IF TEMP IS COLD ENOUGH AND IT IS CYCLING THEN THERE IS NO WATER GETTING TO THE ICEMAKER. POUR A CHARGE OF WATER IN THE TRAY/MOLD AND IT MAKES ICE AND DUMPS ONLY THE ONE LOAD IS ANOTHER WAY OF CHECKING. THE NEXT MOST LIKELY PROBLEMS MIGHT BE A WATER LINE FROZEN DUE TO A SUPER COLD FREEZER OR A BAD SOLENOID VALVE. I HAVE NOT SEEN IT BUT I WOULD CHECK THE WATER FILTER ALSO. IF THIS DOES NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM-YOU NEED TO GET THE MODEL NO. AND SERIAL NO. OFF OF THE NAMEPLATE. I BELIEVE YOU HAVE TAKEN IT FROM THE BOOKLET AND YOU ARE SHORT SOME DIGITS.

HOPE THIS HELPOUT , GOOD LUCK IN SOLVING THE PROBLEM

The water dispenser has stopped working all of a sudden...a little water drips out, but that's it


Make sure water valve was not turned off,
Check water Filter,

Empty Ice container to see if you have problem with ice maker.

if water filer is good & Ice maker are working good

Then there are only two things it could be .... The internal water valve or the line is frozen


Most common is water valve in the refrigerator.

Trying to reset filer light after changing filter-locked up


Here is a link to the manual for your unit. Copy paste into your browser.

http://shop.amana.com/assets/pdfs/literature/12591321.PDF

Page 20 shows how to unlock the dispenser and reset the filter light and I have pasted them here.

There are products at Lowes or Home Depot near the appliance for odor removal, I like to put a bowl of cotton balls on a couple of shelves, soak the cotton in vanilla once a day. The odors will be gone in a couple of days.

DISPENSER LOCK
(SELECT MODELS)
This feature prevents ice or water from
being dispensed.
To lock dispenser:
➢ Press and hold DISPENSER LOCK
button for 3 seconds. A green
indicator light above button confirms
dispenser is locked.
To unlock dispenser:
➢ Hold DISPENSER LOCK button for 3
seconds. Green indicator light above
button will go out.


Filter reset

The filter status indicator light
serves as a reminder to replace the
water filter. A green light indicates that
the filter is in good condition. A red light
indicates the filter should be changed.
Once light turns red, it will remain red
until function is reset.
To reset indicator:
➢ Press and hold both DISPENSER
LOCK and WATER buttons
simultaneously for 4 seconds. The
green filter status indicator light will
flash 3 times when the function has
successfully reset.

I have an old Kenmore 26 side by side that dispenses water and ice. At one point it stopped producing ice and dispensing water. I changed the inline filter and it worked perfectly. Happened again shortly...


It sounds like you need to replace your water inlet valve , it is a dual valve for ice and water in the door and they go out often , the solenoid is not opening anymore , it is located where you hook up the water line.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Can't identify "water filter indicator light"


the indicator light could be on the control panel inside the refr section if your controls are there, or it is most likely on the front of the dispenser panel. it only comes on when you draw water from the dispenser and thats when you will see it be green, filter ok, yellow, filter at 80% life, or red, time to replace the water filter.
also you dont need to shut off the water when changing the filter as it is made with a shut off device in the filter housing already and is automatic.
by the way filters are expensive, go online and check prices. google "water filters" and find a good price.
