I have an Amana B2QORBL. It has the IC6 Ice Maker. I recently purchased the refrigerator from someone I know. The ice maker was never connected to a water line.
I connected it to a water line several hours ago.
So far, no ice.
No water is coming into the ice maker.
Mine was slow-to-none in ice making for a couple of years. One day for the first time I used the built in water dispenser. The long copper line feeding water was full of air gaps. After I bled that out, it has been perfect ever since.

Re: NO ICE - IC6
George, the ice maker will cycle about every 2.5 hours. Sometimes it takes a couple cycles to prime the lines. You can remove the white cover of the ice maker. On the module you will see two ports, one marked L and another marked V on the left side. Take a insulated jumper wire and jump these two terminals. You are now sending 120V to the valve. See if the water starts coming in. Also make sure the bailing arm is down. Catriver...post back.

Some models like yours came with a defrost control board and others came
with a defrost timer. They should be found inside the fresh food
compartment and behind the temperature control panel. You will need to
inspect and let me know which you have. Unplug first. If the control
board looks or does not look burned it could be bad. The timer can be
turned clockwise until compressor stops and should remain stopped for about 25 minutes. and then turn itself back on. If these
look good then we need to remove the rear panel inside the freezer and
test the defrost element with one wire disconnected to check for
continuity. Just to be sure the element has not burned out. The defrost
thermostat is connected to the defrost element and will have open
contacts inside it above 50 degrees.
I've experienced this before, and have two solutions that helped. One is, boiling the water prior to putting them into the ice tray. And two, you can fill up your ice tray and then wrap it with aluminum foil. I've heard saran clear wrap also works, but I've used aluminum tin foil - and it helped. I hope this works for you. I've tried both of these solutions, and it made a difference. So I hope it works for you. Good Luck!
The fill line internal to the freezer is likely frozen up from the elbow inward.. When the icemaker calls for fill...pressure builds up on the plastic tubing causing it to pop out of the elbow. Check the tube inside the freezer by removing icemaker and running a long thin screwdriver or a rigid wire up into the tube until you feel ice or the plastic elbow outside.
Clear ice, if present, by squeezing hot water in from freezer side with turkey baster until cleared and water comes out back.
What you need is a new ice maker the front gear is not engaging the contacts, you can buy the front module only ( what u put the wire in to on the l & v contact ) but a whole new ice maker assy is the same price.
sounds like your ice maker is working properly and that maybe you pinched the water line when you reinstalled it back into the elbow.. is the elbow clear of any ice build up or foreighn matter that would restrict the flow of water into the ice mold tray? If so..that's your problem.. ( thaw it out or melt it and then you should be OK) Hope that helps..
Having problemAMA IC6 Icemaker. Water leaking into tray as it is making cubes causing previous cubes to freeze together and to the bottom of the container. Trying to defrost to see if that helps. Any suggestions appreciated.
