Amana Side by side refridgerator Model SBD20TPE P1190006WE

Hi, we bought a house with the above Amana installed. It's a stainless steel side by side with water/ice dispenser on the left side. Two months ago, the water dispenser was dripping/leaking in the off position. We couldn't find the cause and ended up clamping the supply line that we could find underneath the fridge, so now we have ice dispensing but no water. Yesterday, I heard a "PSSST' sound and found water spilling out of the fridge. We removed the drawers and found a leak in the plastic unit on the lower back of the fridge (inside, under a white cover). We tried everything to stop it and ended up clamping that line, to prevent the water from coming in.

1. Any idea what might be wrong (esp with the fridge leak)? The temp of the freezer and fridge is still fine.
2. Is there a cheap way to repair or some things we can try
3. Does the water do anything in the fridge beside help the ice maker/water dispenser to work? We hoped that was it's only purpose, and can live without that.
Thanks much!

    We have a similar problem. Water will just start coming out of the water dispenser for no reason.

I have a stainless steel Amana model ABC2037DES that was given to me. It has been plugged in for 24 hours and it is not freezing anything or making ice. The refridgerator is not cold enough either. ...

if the compressor is working it could be a thermostat problem
I think that if you check for a reset button at the back to get the compressor running , that will fix the problem

GE Side by Side Stainless steel Ice Maker water will not shut off

The fill valve may hae a chunk of debris such as rust in it. If you disconnect power and water, you might disassemble the valve if it's the type that was screwed together. If it's riveted, you'll have no choice but to replace. In either case, make sure you have a filter in the line so this does not happen again.

Frigidaire the refridgerator is not cold enough. It stays at 60 degrees, I don't know the model because it was torn off inside the fridge and the owner's manual did not come with the house when we bought...

Have one similar and found out the compressor goes out on them about a year and half after purchase. You can buy another compressor but the likely hood of it going out again is likely. Sorry but we bought bad fridges. Never again will I buy a Fridgidaire.
