Question about Amana Refrigerators

1 Answer

My Amana icemaker is not working well. Water comes into the big tray and freezes, so the mechanism can not dispense the ice. I tried replacing the entire ice maker unit but the problem is still there. Everything appears to be working. It is as if the there's too much water. (The ice that does get made is fused together along one side.) Turning the little screw does not do any good. Could this be related to the fact that we have not changed the filter in over a year? Thanks in advance.

Couple things to check is the fill tube to the icemaker make sure it is clear and free of any ice... sometimes the water will come in and spray in rather that freely flow...this will cause ice to form where you don;t want it... second thing is yes the filter could be a problem... 3rd thing to check is the water valve itself may not be shutting off all the way or not running as much as it should...

My icemaker will not dispense ice. The tray is full, but won't rotate to drop cubes.


Ice sitting for a long time in the tray sometimes freezes the mechanism. Try unloading the tray of ice. Make sure nothing is jamming the parts that dispense the ice. Wait for new ice to be made and see if it works.

I have an Amana Side by Side Refrigerator with an icemaker and water dispenser. I don't have a water line to hook up to the refrigerator. Is there an on/off switch for the icemaker?


There should be a stop control near the icemaker where it collects ice in the tray. It should be an L-shaped lever. move it to the stop position.

Water dispenser for Amana Side By Side regridgerator not working. Water is flowing into the unit b/c ice dispenser is working. What are main potential issues to look at on the water dispenser?


when pressing in on the water dispenser you should hear a clicking sound from a micro switch being activated. if you hear the micro switch clicking ok then you'll have to disconnect the water at various points and retry to see which locations the where water is coming out and where it is not. Trial and error approach to narrow down the problem location. usually either a bad water valve or a freeze up in the water line somewhere. assuming water is working to icemaker.

Icemaker won't fill tray,


Was the inlet tube frozen. If so your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking and when the water reaches the freezer it freezes, blocking the inlet tube. Replace the water inlet valve.
You can Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Ice maker overflows


The Icemaker may not be dumping the cubes after they freeze then more water pours in on top of them. The icemaker has a heater which turns the cubes loose and allows them to dump. You may find someone to work on an icemaker, not sure. If this is the case, I would replace the icemaker.

Ice Maker Freezing Up and Ice not dispensing


Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck
