Amana Refridgerator Freezer, French Doors

Bought new unit 20 mths ago. Moved house recently and find neither the ice dispenser or water is working. No noise heard either. Water line is working at point of entry on rear.

Any suggestions?

    So far as I can see, there was no problem with the hose. Indeed, there is a trickle of water, once a day, coming thru, but other than that, there is nothing. Guess I'll have to get a service guy to come out. Know a good one in Houston area zip 77065?



    Thanks,



    Alan

Most side-by-sides have a length of hose at the bottom of the freezer that send the water to the ice maker and water dispenser. take the back off so you can see this hose, there may be a kink in it, or a clog.

Several days ago i replaced my water filter - i do not know if this is a coinsidence but now i hear a buzz every once in awhile like something charging - also, the water dispenser is not working and just...


There are two electric water valves which might buzz (especially if dry). One for the ice cubes. One for the water dispenser.
Since both are incorrect, they are probably not the problem. You are not getting water pressure.
It might not be the filter. Time to get wet and test. Could easily be the valve which feeds the fridge. It is probably a self piercing valve which makes a very small hole to get the water from the larger pipe. Close it all the way down (re-pierce the hole) and open it again.

Amana Refridgerator won't dispense water or make ice.


  • Hi: You did your homework and checked everything. You said you checked the water flow to the refrigerator, and it was fine. Although what you described sounds like no or low water flow to the solenoid. I'm referring to the valve the water line is connected to. When they "rattle" it means there is not enough or no water pressure keep them open. These valves usually have a gravel filter. As you say it's a scratch and dent. The filter may clogged with gravel, or mildew (as it sat unused as a scratch and dent for who knows how long.) You sound handy. Before I replace that valve I would remove it and look where the inlet water is attached. Usually there is a screen behind a cap you will have to unscrew the size of an garden hose cap. See if there is a screen that can be cleaned. I'll lind the Sears parts direct page to you with the part no. #10 on the diagram. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=AFD2535DEB&productCategoryId=0161000&brandId=1268&modelName=AMANA-REFRIGERATOR&diagramPageId=00012&componentDescription=CABINET BACK&documentId=M0705005&backToLink=Return to Sub Components list The clogged screen would make the valve vibrate like you described. I hope this helps, Jeff

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

AMANA refridgerator water dispenser not working. Freezer door not closed properly last night.


Hello schlucks
welcome to fixya.

You said, Your AMANA refridgerator water dispenser not working. Freezer door not closed properly last night.

When the door to the freezer was left open all night,the moisture from outside caused the water line to the water dispenser to freeze!
What you need to do is to move all the articles from your freezer to a spare or second freezer
temporarily.
Then turn off the freezer compartment of the first unit where the water is not depensing .
you will need 12 to 24 hours untill the line defrosts.
If the dispenser works sooner then don't wait any longer to restart the freezer.

In some models, the fact that the freezer is turned off may affect the power in the dispenser untill the freezer is turned back on.

After you finish defrosting and turn the freezer back on. give it 24 hours to get back to running temperture.
Then reload the articles agin.
BUT DO NOT TAKE 20 TRIPS TO BRING THE PACK AGES AND LOAD IT, LEAVING THE DOOR OPEN AGAIN!
Bring the articles to the freezer and load it straight awy quickly and close the door.
This will solve your problembarring any damage to the dispenser!t
Thank You for having me advice you.
Huuum
Please remember to leave a rating!
I'm sure you are solved!



Some info!!!!!!!!!!

cold air to the bin and make it colder.
Water and Ice Dispensers
(on some models)
Depending on your model, you may have one or more of the
following options: the ability to select either crushed or cubed
ice, a special light that turns on when you use the dispenser, or a
lock option to avoid unintentional dispensing.
NOTES:
■ The dispensing system will not operate when the freezer door
is open.
■ After connecting the refrigerator to a water source, flush the
water system. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the
water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for
5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water
begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the
dispenser lever (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) for an
additional 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and
water dispensing system. Additional flushing may be required
in some households. As air is cleared from the system, water
may spurt out of the dispenser.
■ Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill
water.
■ Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
