Question about Amana Refrigerators
They do not repair icemakers for the simple fact it is cheaper to just buy a new unit aka icemaker in fact the icemaker when the repairman buys it costs him between 47-90 dollars at which for him to disconnect the three bolts and reinstall the icemaker the charge usually starting around 189.00 first thing to do would be to look at the tube where the water is going into the icemaker and observe if you have a leak from the tube the next step would be to inspect the icemaker for cracks in the ice making tray if this is also ok has your repairman checked the t-stat this is a small two wire round disc like object located behind the back panel this is what regulates your temptreture and turns the heater on when your freezer gets to cold another thing to check would the drain tube that goes from the bottom tray under the condensor sometimes this also gets blocked with ice.In turn when it does get blocked the ice just builds up the t-stat is located as part number 3 on this diagram from this link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Amana-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-XRSS287BW0/1268/0165000/M0610184/00014?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= lastly if your fan is not spinning at the addequate speed that it is supposed to be spinning at then the amount of cold air would not be leaving your freezer to go into your fridgerator and when the heater kicked on the water that melted off the condensor coils would build up also as ice if your repairman is saying its the icemaker visually inspect the icemaker yourself here is a link also showing how to remove your icemaker http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Amana-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-XRSS287BW0/1268/0165000/M0610184/00008?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= please message me back with your finds after you have visually inspected for yourself. i hope this opinion has helped in your appliance situation please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation and i await your reply
