Question about Amana 25.8 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Freestanding Refrigerator SRD26VP
We've had it unplugged for some time, but I'd like to put it back into use. It has an Ice Maker. I verified the correct Temp control setting. Door seals are OK. The only other problem we had with it is the Ice selection switch on the door front is faulty, so you have to get it between crushed and cube to stop it from delivering ice through the shoot

multiple probems you have my friend the black in the cubes is the telfon coating on the mold of the imkr and the best thing to do is replace the complete icemaker then this will solve the leak issue as well the mold is cracked and for the some how the 1/4'' tube has sprung a leak pull away from wall take off the back panel and have some one try to get water from the dispenser then you find the leak then its off to the menards to buy a plastic 1/4'' push connector about 5.00 once you got the coupling shut off the water to the tube that goes to the frig once done use a razor to cut the bad part of the tube (don't use sissors or ****to cut tube it will squeeze the tube and not allow it to seal properly in you new coupler you just bought) then after you cut off the bad part out just push into the coupler it will go in to the coupler about 1/4'' into the coupler install the other side turn water back on and test again...... congrat's you fix it but your not done unplug the frig get your vacuum and clean the dust bunnies out of the rear of the unit once done plug back in and make sure you see the fan blade turn freely and nothing is holding it up did it turn ............. ok then put back on and push the frig back to the wall allow at least 2'' away from the wall

SOURCE: Ice maker stopped working
A step by step procedure should resolve your problem. If the dispenser is working, you can skip that step.
First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

either the switch is bad that moves the selection from crushed to whole ice or the ice crushing motor is out
