Our Amana afi2538aes is doing the same thing. Had a repairman out. He called tech support at Amana. They had him adjust the "thermistors" but it is colder than ever running at 28-30degrees in the fresh food compartment despite being set at 46 degrees. Tech support also recommended installing some sort of "ice bin seal kit to take care of the problem" according to our invoice from repairman. Repairman was told that the ice bin in the fresh food compartment puts cold air out (to keep the ice frozen) which freezes the food in the fresh food compartment. I called Amana and the rep I spoke to said he couldn't find record of this being a problem with the model but tech support told our repairman "we've had a lot of problems with this happening."
Could be the switch in the dispenser is bad or you may have a bad solenoid valve check to see if your getting power to the valve when the button is depressed. Also a slim chance the water tank behind the vegetable bins is frozen..
You have a defective thermistor and damper control in the fresh food or a bad control board.
Check the thermistor first.
Also, adjust the return air damper at the bottom left side of the fresh food sction to warmer.
if you pull out the vegetable drawer, you will notice a vent on the left side in the back. get some tape ( I use aluminum tape ) and cover the bottom half of the vent, that will help keep your vegetables from freezing. that should solve your problem. Joe
We have a hd2560 (bot 10/04), french door with inside water dispenser and it had stopped working a year ago, but started working a few months later. I couldn't figure out what happened, but suspected the water line was frozen. I later found out that the water reservoir is located behind the fruit and vegetable bins, so look there to see if the water is frozen.
Two weeks ago, our frig/compressor stopped cooling after making humming/clicking sounds for weeks. Fortunately, Maytag has a 5 yr parts & labor warranty on the compressor, so we were covered. Evidently, there are quite a few faulty compressors out there.
I believe that the compressor had been over-cooling in the past and caused the water lines/tank to freeze. This would also cause frozen produce/fruit. I would immediately contact Maytag/Whirlpool if you suspect a faulty compressor as well.
You may have two mutually exclusive probems... one being the water dispenser doesn't dispense water... As you stated, the obvious remedy would be to replace your filter to see if that is restricting water flow.. secondly, your vegetable crisper is freezing vegetables... chances are that the inlet between the freezer compartment and that vegetable darwer is near there and the damper needs to be closed a bit... See if you can locate the cold air inlet vent and partially close the damper ... Hope that helps...
2 possible problems.
#1 water valve for the water side is stuck in the closed position. Only way to tell is to pull the bottom kick panel out and look for the water line disconnect. Separate the line, close the door and try to draw water through the dispenser. If the water comes out of the disconnected line, then the water valve is good.
#2 if water is coming out of disconnected line, then the problem is in the freezer door. There is a heater that keeps the water line from freezing inside the freezer door. It is not repairable!! The freezer door has to be replaced.
