Question about Amana SXD524VW Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Amana SDZ27MH side by side

The plastic water lines are brittle and cracking. The line from the dual water valve to the water reservoir is just falling apart. How do I get to the water reservoir? My manual says it is behind the crispers. Can I get to this easly? Is the reservoir a replaceable unit? Thanks for any and all help. Richard

Yes, the water tank is replaceable.Contact your local appliance parts store and provide them with the unit's serial and model number(not hardware store). You can also purchase just the plastic water line. If the unit has a quick-connect fittings make sure you push it all the way in. If you don't it may come off and cause leak or even flood. If they are compression type make sure you replacing them with exactly the same parts.

I have an amana asd2626hew side by side with a new water valve but i still have no water at the door. how do you check to see if the water line is frozen?

did you connect dual valve correctly if not icemaker could be filling when you try to get water out of dispensor also a way to check if your dispensor paddle and switch test ..... otherwise possible plugged water filter or bypass cap not installed in filter head... is water supply on to water valve

I would like to know if there is more then one water line connection for ice maker or does the line for water work for the both of them.?

Good day,
There is only one water source line from the house supply.
It feeds a valve on the back of the machine. It is a dual valve, it splits up into two lines supplying the ice maker and water.
If that's your question.

Easiest way to thaw out a possible frozen water reservoir in my GE side by side fridge?

Hair dryer is the easiest way to thaw. To find cause: Remove lower grill and disconnect the water line going through the freezer2_bing.gif door hinge. Usually it is a push lock fitting, which requires you to push the ring2_bing.gif on the end of the fitting toward the center of the fitting while pulling (not hard) on the plastic tube. Now place a pan under the separated plastic hose and try the water dispenser. If water comes out, your problem is a frozen water line in the freezer door. A warmer freezer temp may help, or you can order and install a WR49X10173 water tube heater2_bing.gif. (the heater may take 24 hours to thaw the line, but I have used it successfully several times. Cost about $50) If no water comes out the separated tube when you try to dispense water, reconnect the tube at the hinge by pushing the plastic line back into the fitting. Now, at the back of the refrig., disconnect the water line going from the water valve to the fresh foods compartment. Try to dispense water. No water at valve outlet = bad valve. Water dispensed from valve now = frozen water filter2_bing.gif or water line at back bottom of fresh foods compartment. (make sure you disconnect the right tube. If in doubt, disconnect them both, just get them back correctly so your icemaker continues to work) Send me additional comments if needed. Don't rate before you try all the steps.

If water filter or water line/ reservoir is frozen, thaw with a hair dryer. If reservoir is frozen, check to make sure there is no frost on back wall of inside freezer, preventing normal air flow, allowing cold air to enter fresh foods compartment through return air vent at lower back of fresh foods compartment, resulting in freezing of water line / reservoir and possibly food in bottom bin.

Maytag fridge no water to icemaker any suggestions

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve . If it does not dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils are clean beneath refrig , and the clear fill tube , which fills the icemaker , is clear of ice (not frozen up ).

A have an Amana Model ARS2664BW refrigerator/freezer that is pump

Usually the water connection and the electrical connections on the water valve are different size however, this must not be the case on yours.

The water line to the icemaker should come out the back/top of the ref. so you could just follow it down to the valve.

Set your meter to 110 volts and have someone push the water in the door while you check the connection at the valve. This should tell you which is water in the door and which is icemaker.

Water dispenser not working

The reservoir is in the back of the fridge compartment behind the bottom crisper. The inlet and outlet tubes are permanently crimped into the resevoir. I cut them off, drilled out the inlet and outlet on the reservoir, and then used hose clamps when reinstalling.

Water in door

the first thing i would check is the water line in the refrigerator side (it may be frozen). it is located behind the plastic pans in the bottom rear of the refrigerator. this water reservoir chills the water b4 it reaches the dispenser. if the refrigerator gets a little too cold then this small water line could freeze up and block the water flow.
another cause could be the water valve in the back of the refrigerator. it is actually a dual valve, 1 for the ice-maker and 1 for the water dispenser.

Leaking icemaker

It sounds like your water valve is occasionally get stuck open and over filling the icemaker.
