Question about Amana Refrigerators

Open Question

How can I fix ice maker so it doesn't clog up?

The little silver prongs that kick the ice cubes out, get globs of ice attached to the tips making it impossible for the prongs to drop back down into the ice trays. I have to take a sharp knife to break the ice globs off then the prongs drop down into the water trays. As soon as it dispensers a tray of ice, they glob back up again.Only the two prongs closest to the back of the fridge have the problem. Thank you!

there is a double valve at the back bottom lhs. check continuity of both valve coils but doubtfull this is the problem. the fault may be that the filling tube is frozen. try looking in this area

SOURCE: Ice maker water level too high

generally, there is a screw adjustment for this. usually, turning it clockwise sends more water during fill period (makes period longer). try it and adjust clockwise or counter-clockwise as necessary. Now finding the screw...try prying (or unscrewing) off the plastic cover over what appears to be the ice-maker unit (may also be on back side of frig.

SOURCE: amana side by side ice dispenser leaking water

Take the ice maker out and look at the mold. If the coating is flaking off then that is where it is leaking. Will need to replace the ice maker.

SOURCE: LG ice maker only making two ice cubes at a time

Colenoid in the ice dispenser may be clogged or have a small amount of trash in it. Is there a filter on before the fridge (just after the ice maker shutoff)?

SOURCE: Ice Maker Freezing Up and Ice not dispensing

Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck

Newair Icemaker is making ice large at top and decreases down to little shape at bottom? What is the problem, please?


Ice on bottom is older ice. When icemaker goes thru defrost cycle, ice melts and gets smaller. New ice that drops on top is newer and bigger. Your only problem is not using enough ice.

My ice in the ice maker seems to be melting together and they are fusing into big ice cubes that cannot dispense/


This tends to happen when ice has sat in the ice bucket for a couple days of non use. The warmer your kitchen the worst this tends to happen. What's usually happening is the ice bucket is sitting on the door where the ice dispenser sends it to your glass. Since the cavity in the door is exposed to the warm air in your kitchen it can work its way to the ice bucket area via the chute in the door and when the moist warm kitchen air reaches the ice cubes in the bucket it turns everything into melting ice cubes which eventually freezes at some point and clogs up the ice bucket with large globs of ice pieces that the ice crusher can't handle. About the only thing to do is remove the ice globs from the bucket and make new ice. This is not all that abnormal, just a pain though. Try putting something in the chute (small Rag?) to see if this stops it. If it does then there's not a whole lot you can do about it but use the ice machine more often so it doesn't all sit there melting together.

Ice maker not dropping ice


Need more info. Are there ice cubes in the storage section just behind the freezer door? You may have turned the ice-maker OFF. When your depress the ice flipper, does the motor run behind the door? The motor may be burned out or the ice cubes in the storage section are so melted together in a giant glob that the agitator cannot turn.Or, maybe someone turned OFF the water supply.

No water flowing into the ice maker reservoir. I poured water into the reservoir, but no ice dropped after 10 hours. Next day I unplugged refrigerator opened freezer door and thawed it out for about two...


Well, if the ice maker were working properly, when you poured water, assuming you poured A, enough water, and B, not too much water, you should have seen some cubes drop into the bucket. But since you did not get any ice cubes, I would have to say the reason your ice maker is not making ice is because you have a bad ice maker. Its not receiving water because it is not cycling.

Can't get ice bucket back into place to make ice...what are we doing wrong.


First, turn the icemaker off by raising the wire "bar" that is attached to the icemaker until it clicks into the raised position.

Second, if your freezer has an ice dispenser system, make note of the position of the drive gear at the back of the freezer. It will have two prongs that will need to mate with the icemaker bucket. If they aren't lined up with the icemaker bucket auger, then turn the auger by hand until it will line up with the prongs.

Finally, check for a stray ice cube resting inside the freezer, either on the back wall or on the side rails where the bucket rests.

Ice maker makes ice cubes, but the doesn't dispense ice cubes.


If you could observe exactly where the water is dripping from it would help but...If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.
If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Ice maker makes too much ice


In my Kitchen Aid bottom freezer there is a metal arm(?) that I lift up to stop the ice maker from making ice. When I start running low on ice, I push the metal arm(?) back down for it to make ice again. Hope this is the solution for your Kitchen Aid too.

Samsung model RF265ABPN waxy looking piece fell into ice tray


The waxy piece has a clear plastic bracket, if its not connected, look around your freezer. The waxy piece fits inside the bracket, and attaches to the ice maker, just in front of the ice tray.

The white wire fits inside the waxy piece. It is the thermostat that tells the ice tray when to dump the ice.

This is impossible to feel around for, so you will need to remove at least the bottom freezer compartment as well as the ledge piece from just inside the freezer door. If you are a relatively thin/small person, you can extend the top tray fully outward, and slide underneath. Looking up at the ice maker, the plastic bracket should have a little prong. This prong will attach just behind the ice maker, with the thermostat facing the ice tray.

Ice maker only crushes/does not cube


Remove the ice bin. Look at the back wall, behind where the bin was. You should see a rectangular hole, about 1.5 x 1 inches near the bottom of where the ice bin was. There should be a white plastic part inside the hole. This plastic part should be able to be lifted up with your finger, and drop down again when you release it. If is does not move, it may be frozen, or the electrical solenoid connected to it may have melted. If the part moves freely, just replace the ice bucket and try to dispense cubes again. (the metal arm sticking out the back of the ice bucket might have gotten on the wrong side of the white plastic part in back)
