Question about Amana SXD524VW Side by Side Refrigerator

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.

Locks and cannot shift up or down . pull in the clutch but still keeps moving


first cover the tank and fairing with plastic and a cloth towel. Brake fluid will damage Honda paint and make Honda plastic crack and fall apart. Open up the clutch fluid reservoir and fill it to the full line. Now located the slave cylinder on the back of the motor by your heel and bleed the clutch master cylinder. This should restore your ability to shift.

AC blows out of the defrost vents until you accelerate for awhile and sometimes when you stop at a red light it will change from the ac vents and go back to the defrost vents


SOUNDS LIKE A VACUUM PROBLEM ...CHECK THEVACUUM RESERVOIRS FOR LEAKS ,,CRACKS ETC ,, USE A HAND OPERATED VACUUM PUMP AND PLUG THE OTHER PORTSTO SEE IF IT HOLDS VACUUM. ALSO CHECK THE PLASTIC VACUUM LINE THAT SUPPLIES THE A/C CONTROLL SWITCH . THERE SHOULD BE A CLEAR 2 HOSE CONNECTOR BELOW THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT I THINK THERE ARE 2 HOSES THAT ARE USED ,BLACK , GRAY , USE A SMALL VACUUM T AND INSTALL IN THE VACUUM SUPPLY LINE ( I THINK IT'S THE BLACK LINE ) TEST DRIVE THE VEHICLE AND SEE IF THE VACUUM GUAGE ON THE PUMP FALLS DURING ACCELL IF IT DOES TURN OFF THE A/C AND RETEST IF IT FALLS . AGAIN CHECK ENGINE VACUUM AT INTAKE MANIFOLD SUPPLY PORT TO VACUUM CANISTER ,, I HAVE SEEN ANYTHING FROM CRACKED VACUUM LINES ,CHECK VALVES, TO CAT CONVERTORS CAUSE THIS

HOPE THIS GETS YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

1998 dodge ram 1500 A/C only blows through defrost


The air flow controls are vacuum operated and if the vacuum is lost it shifts to the default or no-vacuum position which is to the defrost. You most likely have a broken plastic 1/8" line under the hood near the RH side of the engine that supplies the vacuum to the HVAC controls. If the controls work normally unless you are accelerating then switch by themselves to defrost you may only have a bad check valve. There may be a vacuum diagram posted on the underside of the hood that shows these lines otherwise you'll just have to examine each line until you find the bad spot. There may be a plastic vacuum reservoir that one of these lines goes to so check it for any cracks or damage also.

RYOBI RBL-30MVA 30cc when pressing the primer bulb to allow petrol thro, nothing happens? and as its not letting the petrol thro, the leaf blower will not start....any suggestions? thanks ben.


The diaphragm in the carb may need to be replaced. Make sure all your fuel lines are fine. On these inexpensive blowers the fuel lines tend to get brittle and crack and fall apart.

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 ).

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.
