that is hard to tell.. It might not be defrosting or maybe have a bad fan motor. Freon leaks usually do not happen with Amana's depending on the age/model (you gave no info about this or model#)

You would have to list other symptoms along with a model# for further assistance

Heat guns are typically a bad idea as most people will hold it in one place too long melting,or disfiguring the plastic on the icemaker or worse,the cabinet.

Removing and using hot water is always the best way!

The usual problem for small, or hollow ice cubes is a bad saddle valve. There really isn't a good saddle valve in my opinion as they always clog either from mineral or rusting from the inside out.

What you want to do is find your shutoff valve. Sometimes in the basement, or under a sink if it is close by the refrigerator and look to see how it is hooked up. If it has a valve like the attached pic then it would be best to call in a plumber and have him replace it with a toilet style ball valve which will never restrict water flow and will always work!

The two main types of saddle valves are self pierce (absolute garbage) and drill type. If you look at where the valve straps to the pipe it will either have a round or square gasket. The square gasket ones are the worst and 99.5% of the time are the problem.

Think of a water faucet.. You turn it on and water comes out and you turn it off and the water stops, right? Now when a faucet gets old sometimes it will drip and you have to jiggle it to make it stop.

In the back of the fridge you have the same basic thing. A valve that opens and closes to allow water to flow.. It is split into two sides, one for the water in the door and one for the icemaker.

One side could go bad while the other still works and that sounds like what is happening. Some have one and some have two depending on if you have a water filter but this one looks to be an oldie but goodie before the water filters were factory installed.

The part# you need is WPW10247599 and I fount it for under 40$. You need to unplug the unit and turn off the water to it. Change the valve and defrost the tube going to the if needed.

There is a tube that runs from freezer to a tray under the fridge. Clean out the tray and disconnect the tube, blow through it to be sure it is clear.

Are you saying your freezer coil is solidly frozen?

Do you know if you have a mechanical defrost. On the older side by side Amanda's there is the defrost control timer at the bottom in front. Put a screw driver in the slot and advance the timer. If it is stuck everything will be off. Think it's a small red dial. Open both doors, take off the front kick plate and it is under the front.

Sounds like it has a leak and it is low on coolant.

Amana... | Answered on Jan 18, 2018

Sounds like your door seals are not seating causing moisture to migrate past the seal and condense and freeze. Check to see if this is true will small strips of paper. If you place the strip in the door and pull, you should have some resistance. If you pull and it moves freely, your door seal needs to be realigned or replaced

We hear it described at frogs, mice, opera singer, and many more. It can be the evaporator fan or the damper actuator. Both are fairly easy to replace.
