Question about Amana Refrigerators

1 Answer

On our Amana Side by Side, there is water dripping from the ice-maker bucket. The cubes were melting. It does not appear that anything else below is melting. I emptied the bucket and lifted the arm to stop the ice making cycle. Any hints or other things to check?

I don't have this particular model, but had a similar problem. Check the flap to the ice chute. If it's not sealing properly it would allow warm air into the freezer and melt the ice.

I had to call for service.

Sometimes ice melts in ice maker. Water drips down and refreezes.


There is a heater built into the ice maker bottom to help release ice cubes from the machine. Under normal conditions the heater only come on when the ice maker starts to run and then jambs against the frozen cubes. When it stalls and jambs against the frozen ice cubes, the heater comes on to melt the cubes enough. I think you have a defective ice maker and the heater is coming on to much or at the wrong time, Since your temps go back to normal with the ice maker turned off, I am almost sure thats your problem.

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.

I have the exact same problem, curious if you have any answer...


If the ice melts in the ice maker I think something strange is going on with the heating element below the ice maker. It comes on only for a few seconds before the ice drops. And is used to loosen the ice. But if water continues to flow from the water control valve while the ice maker is full it has no where to go but into the freezer and refreeze. Sometimes the water control valves have trash buildup inside the valve and will not shut and allows the water to continue to flow. About the only way to solve that is replace the water control valve and place a pre-filter in the line before the water reaches the valve. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Clump of ice in bucket


That means that the evaporator fan system that releases the the ice cubes is not working as it should.

The evaporator fan and heating system must be checked, and fan, or solenoid, or element must be replaced.

Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.

Enter model number on this website to find schematics and replacement parts.

Icemaker issue: cubes melting at the bottom causing water leak out the front


J, sounds like your dispensor flapper is not closing properly and you are drawing warm air up into the ice bucket. This model had an issue where the flapper pin holder was part of the housing and would break off. They have a kit now that fixes that problem. The only other thing it could be would be low freezer temps or it's staying in defrost too long. With out being there, I would start with the dispensor flapper. Check it out and post back..
