Question about Amana Refrigerators

Open Question

My SXD22S2L (may be 13 years old) side-by-side Amana fridge/freezer has ice and water through the door. Ice is dispensed but water is not. I can see water in the line feeding into the ice maker. Do I have to take the back panel(s) off to see the water-through-the-door line? I see two galvanized metal panels. The top one is an upside down "L" shape. The bottom one is rectangular. They are secured by sheet metal screws. How do I proceed to repair the water-through-the-door dispenser?

SOURCE: GE Profile side by side fridge - water dispenser doesn't work

More than likely, your water line is freezing up in the door. You can remove all of the ice cubes and lower the freezer temp to about 3. Leave the freezer door open for about 5 minutes or so and if this does not work, leave the door open a little longer. Also, disconnect the water line at the base of the freezer door, near the floor, and press the dispenser lever. If you have water there, you most likely have a frozen line in the door. Changing the water filter often will help but it is not the answer and is can get quite expensive. By the way, Make sure to hold the dispenser lever forward for at least a couple of minutes each time you test for water flow. If you do not get water at the connector at the base of the door after you have disconnected the line, you have a problem with the valve in the back of the refrigerator.

Ice dispenser stuck on


Either the paddle for the ice/water dispenser is stuck or you have a bad microswitch behind the dispenser.
To stop the ice/water from dispensing open the freezer door and press or hold the child lock button down. Once the unit is in child lock mode you can shut the door without energizing the dispenser.
Another option is to remove the upper freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the wire connector up there. This will remove voltage from the dispenser as well. Then either replace the paddle or switch. Sometimes the paddles/switches will get stuck because of splash up from ice dropping in sugary drinks.

check the door in the dispenser if moisture is condensing and freezing so that the door won't open try manually popping the door open just before you attempt to dispense ice, maybe you'll get lucky, otherwise your going to have to get a technician to come and check the micro-switch for the dispenser

Amana side by side with ice/water in the door freezer stops freezing about 8 yrs old


First of all the worst thing you can do is set your fridge on the highest setting even though it has it. That's live reving your car to the red line just because it has it. As far as your challenge is concerned, it sounds like a breach in the seal of the fridge or dispenser. Check to see if the ice despenser is closing properly after use and check the door seal to make sure it's closing tight when the door is closed. To do this, simply inspect it for any bad wrinkles, cracks, folds, etc. if none are visible close the door on a dollar bill and make sure it holds securly all the way around the door. I f it doesn't, the seal may need to be replaced and/or the door is warped. If you continue to have issues, post again, we will work this out.

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

NO WATER OR ICE AT DOOR OR IN ICE MAKER


This is Gene's solution not mine, for a Ge fridge.
Assuming the ice dispenser works fine, the first thing I would check is the water filter, then the water inlet valve on the back of the fridge.

If the water filter is more than a year old it will cause restriction to the water flow.

Locate the water inlet valve on the back of the fridge. Remove the wires from the blue solenoid and check for 120V coming to the solenoid while the water dispenser lever is depressed.

If there is 120V then the water inlet valve has to be replaced.
