Amana water fill and ice maker

I have a Amana side by side. I purchased it used. The ice maker has made only a fe3w cubes in the last 12 hrs and the water dispeser pours slowly. Does the icemaker take a wile to get going ? The water line to the frige is fine and I can hear the pump ingage when I use the water dispenser. Should I be getting more water or is it norm for the water to flow slowly?

    My water dispenser dispenses very slowly-- hardly more than a trickle. Takes a while to fill a glass. So if it's the plumbing, what do I do about it?

Check the flow from the water line of the house to the water valve of the frig not connected to the valve it should fill a large container fairly quickly
if it does the problem is with the water valve of the frig
if it does not fill the container fairlly quickly then the problem is the plumbing of the house to the frig valve

My amana reffigerator ice maching is making shells of ice cubes.


This indicates not enough water getting to the tray. check the ice maker shoot where the water comes out to see if it's obstructed with ice. You can defrost it if so, but you may need to replace the water fill solenoid in the back of the refrigerator where the supply line connects.

Amana Refrigerator Model # ARB 2214 CC with leaking ice maker


Good day,
If the fill pipe that fills the ice maker is in it's proper position, then it is a defective water fill valve located in the bottom rear of the machine.
After harvesting the cubes the ice maker mechanism continues to rotate and turns the water valve on for 7 seconds. If it does not shut off smartly then it can cause the well to overfill, and flow water into the bucket.
Do not let this go. A small leak could turn into a major overflow, even overnight causing serious problems to the machine and as I have seen the entire house.

Ice maker overfills and leaks into the ice bin.


I have had a similar problem several times. What I have found is that the ice tray coating has begun to flake off. Then, the ice sticks or partially dumps. Next more ice builds up and when the valve opens the water runs over the partially emptied tray and spills into the bin making "icebergs". The remedy is to replace the tray or if that is not possible, then, the whole icemaker. In fact, I have one down stairs to put in tomorrow. They don't seem to last more than about 4 years or so.

Amana side by side ice maker will not fill with water


Old message, I'm sure you have solved your problem by now, but . . .
IF
 Amana/Whirlpool conforms to wiring standards (no guarantees), the main AC wires should be white=neutral, black=hot, red=switched line.  Of course, they already depart with the use of the brown wire.
You should be able to access the 'full' switch at the ice maker itself and as you have found, it will turn on (or off) the fill solenoid.
It would be kind to post back what you found as it might benefit others in the future.
Thanks-

Amana side by side


if the unit has been runfor some time prior to connecting the water the fill tube may be frozen up, he solution is to turn off defrost overnight with door open and then turn back on, flush water through when turned back on to clear old water and air.
