Question about Amana Refrigerators

2 Answers

I have an AmanaSDI25F-L side by side w/ ice and water. My problem is the water dispenser. When the dispenser bar is pressed in water doesn't make it to the glass but goes directly into the freezer. In order to check what the problem is do I have to remove both top and bottom doors of the freezer to get to the problem or is there an easier way?

    Knowing what my problem is, can you tell me of any problems I'll run into and what parts I might need?

  • jdan4u Nov 05, 2010

    Now that you know what my problem is could you please tell me what to look out for and what parts may be needed to repair it?

  • jdan4u Nov 09, 2010

    Thank you, but the supply line actually comes up the front of the center wall into the dispenser area. I'm just going to take it appart and see what needs to be replaced. I too would think the supply line will need replacing, but I'm sure there will be other parts, washers, screws clamps, etc. I was hoping to be able to buy the necessary parts before I started.

    Thank you anyway.

The water line i belive must be broken it is a plastic line an may have turned hard and brittle . i would try running the next smaller line through it and see if you can get it through. this some times works . and if it won't then there is no easy fix . but only one door has the water line and it comes through the hinge . and this would be a good place to start. mm

My Samsung Model: RF4287HARS refrigerator stopped DISPENSING ice. It makes it, but only water comes out of both push levers now. I get ZERO help from samsung customer service. There is nothing in


The problem is actually in the dispenser lever. The paddle that you press to dispense ice has a plastic lever/arm that extends behind it (you can't see it, it's up high in the assembly.) This plastic lever presses upwards when you push the paddle and presses into a switch. The switch actuates the ice. This little lever is also the ONLY thing that stops the paddle from continuing to press into the water paddle. So when the lever breaks, it creates your two symptoms - no ice and if you press further, you press the water switch and get water.

You need part# DA97-08519A. This is the lever assembly with the switches. You pry the control panel assembly (the whole digital display above the water/ice dispenser) out by inserting a slim pry bar (I used a pocket knife and didn't damage the finish) on one side and working my way around. The assembly is held in place by five plastic tabs (two on each side and one on the top.) When this is removed, the part# above will be obvious.

GE GSH25JFRF BB ice maker doesn't dispense. Water dispenses and ice maker makes ice but won't come out.


There should be a plastice hinge cover on the left top hinge on freezer door. Take it off and press the plug together firmly. Try that and let me know, Sea Breeze

GE Refrigerator Model GSH22SGRBSS NO WATER TO THE FRONT DOOR DISPENSER. ICE OK


Generally, the path to the water dispenser is as follows: water comes in from the wall, goes through a solenoid (valve), and through some tubing to a reservoir behind the fruit and vegetable compartments. From that reservoir, more tubing goes down under the refrigerator, then up near the bottom of the door hinge of the door that has the water dispenser.

First, listen for if there is a water running sound when you try to use the water dispenser. If there is not, then most likely there is no water coming from the supply at the wall, or the main solenoid where the water comes in is not working. If ice is being dispensed, you know that the switch that you press with your cup is good, but that doesn't mean that water is coming in to make new ice. It could be just existing ice being dispensed.

If you DO hear a water running sound, then something is leaking, possibly onto your floor. Follow the path of the water in the first paragraph to locate the leak. Could be that some tubing came off, or burst.

My Aman side by side quit dispensing water. It


Does your fridge have a small tank inside the food compartment? If so, the water may have frozen in the tank and the problem can be solved if you take a blow dryer and warm the tank. That's what happened to mine and with a temp adjustment to keep the food compartment a bit warmer, the water doesn't freeze.

On advice from the tech I removed acess door. It was covered by frozen moisture.
I removed the motor it was full of water. I verified 120 volts at plug to motor from control
by depressing the door switch and ice dispenser lever at same time. The motor ohms out
but because of amount of water removed from it I am going to replace it and see what happens.

Water/Ice Dispenser Mixed Up


Do you have separate levers for Ice and water, or do you have one lever and then you slide a switch to either one and then push the one lever.
