My model AFI2538AEW fridge control panel is stuck and I cannot select anything on it.

Can you unplug and replug it back in to reset compter? It might be easier to go to your circuit breaker box, vs pulling fridge out, and turn off fridge from there. That will cause it to reset. Here is the manual for it.

How to Replace water valve in a ice maker

The water valve is located where the water line connects to the refrigerator in the back. There are usually 4 wires so don't mix them up. One pair is for the ice maker and the other 2 are for the water dispenser in the door. A couple of screws hold it to the frame and you'll see water lines connected to it. Same thing...don'r mix them up.

We have an Amana AFI2538AEW we have had two techs. out already and we have replaced the fill valve. But still we have no ice. What happened is it started leaking water out of the fill cup in the ice...

There should be a float connected to this valve that tells the valve when to open and when to close it kinda works like the float valve in your toilet (check this float),as far as the water leaking out of the cup in the ice maker the float probably bad, Hope this works for u

My amana side by side fridge water dispenser drips and seems to drip a lot more when say the toilet flushes or the washing machine is running almost like it starts a siphon

Sounds like you need to replace the water solenoid valve, located where the water line connects to the back of the fridge, usually behind the fiber cover at the bottom.

These valves are damaged by dirt in the lines. Dirt and scale roughs up the valve needle and seat, and leak more with lower water pressure.

You can get valvesand valve kits from appliance part stores, Home depot or sears parts via ordering. I highly suggest an external in-line filter that will stop this forever, and suppliment the internal filter for taste. If particles are damaging this valve, it is also slowly causing damage to the other water valves in the bathrooms and toilets. If you have to replace valve washers a lot, then a whole house filter would be worth it.

The icemaker overfills and the water keeps running and runs out of the fridge onto the floor

Hi, If the ice maker is overflowing, you will need to change the inlet valve. The inlet valve should only draw water when 120V is sent to the solenoid to open it. The inlet valve is located in back and has the water supply tube attached to it.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Amana ice maker not working

From your description, would it be likely to assume that you are experiencing a water pressure issue? If so, then I would start the investigation at the supply valve that attaches to your homes water lines and do whatever is best for you, i.e. replace the valve or attempt to disassemble and inspect it for blockage. Once that has been removed from the list of suspects, the next culprit is your water inlet valve on the refrigerator. This has filter screens and can become blocked by water residue. These can be removed and cleaned or you can replace the valve to completely eliminate any other electrical/mechanical aspects of the valve. Below is a link to assist you in finding parts and diagnostic tips.
Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,
Dave E. (Illeagle)
