Question about Amana Refrigerators

1 Answer

ASD2522WRS01 side by side, about once a week there's water on the floor from the side where the water/ice dispenser is located. Tried emptying the ice, raising the sensor, makes no difference. Bought this unit in May 09 from Home Depot,it has an April 09 manuf date. Did they install it incorrectly or is there a defect in this model? Thanks.

Is there a layer of ice in bottom of freezer? If so, you most likely have a stopped up defrost drain.

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

Get me the model number. Put tap water in ice maker tray and make sure arm is down. Let it freeze. Wait and see if the ice will drop, this should allow water to come into the ice maker for another run. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: I have a GE side-by-side stainless refrigerator,

Had a similar problem which seemed to be caused by a frozen (literally) auger motor on a similar fridge. GE had a special plastic insulating boot kit that fit over the motor. I removed the motor, let it thaw, reinstalled with boot, and made sure by daughter's boyfriend stopped turning the temp control on the freezer to max. Still working months later.

If you can't hear the solenoid on the water inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.

If you do hear it Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it doesleave the door open till it thaws.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there.

Hi i have it a maytag admiral side by side and it keeps dumping water on floor from front can you suggest anything


Check the freezer floor to see if there is a sheet of ice built up on it. If so you have a clogged drain further back and water is overflowing instead of going down the drain when it goes into defrost. Remove the bottom bin, clear the ice and further back clear the ice from the drain hole using hot water or a screw driver, but be careful if you do that. Once water flows freely down the hole your problem is fixed. If there is no ice in the freezer floor check the waterline that runs to the dispenser which is also located on the front left side if your facing the machine. You'll have to pull the kick plate of do so, but if thats the problem you'll notice water every time you get water from the door.

Water on the floor under the freezer side of unit


It happens to all those old refrigerators. There is a shield separating the drip container and freezer through a small hole. Check if it is blocked. This won't do much of the work and may not be stopped even if you do something. If you can, have a new refrigerator.

We have a TFX25JR side-by-side with ice maker and water dispenser; had water leaking on floor on freezer side of bottom left corner. Comes under tray, cleaned the coils and seemed to work, but 2 weeks...


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Amana SBD21VE No water to ice maker


your water line to the fridge is most likely leaking. You should turn it off right away. The line turn off is either behind the fridge or under sink. sometimes its in basement. The line is very easy to replace. You can get the plastic ones at home centers for under 5 bucks.

I have a Jenn Air JCD2389GE Side by Side. My problem is that at random times (once, twice a week and sometimes once every two weeks) a puddle of water is on our tile floor just in front of the freezer...


You have a frozen defrost drain. whenever the unit goes into defrost, usually once a day the water instead of running down the drain is running out on the interior and then onto your floor.Fairly easy fix if your game?
  • unplug your refrig
  • remove all food from interior of freezer
  • remove shelving
  • remove 2 screws holding the rear cover in place these are usually painted white to blend witht he cover. btw this is the lower cover so you do not have to remove icemaker or dispenser bucket.
  • once cover is removed defrost all of the ice that you see with a hair dryer
  • once the ice is gone you will see a drain hole in the center beneath the cooling coil ou need to flush hot water thru this hole to clear any ice and sludge that may be in the line. ( I sometimes have to use a syringe or turkey baster filled with hot water to forcefully clear this line)
  • reassemble in reverse order
If you have any further questions or comments leave them here and I'll get back to you. Thanks Peyton

The water and icecube dispenser constantly leaks water on floor


Needs new solinoid valve. Usually located on the back bottom of refrigerator

Frigidaire signaling water dispenser instead of ice maker


Sounds like the water solinoid valves are wired wrong.One activates The water dispenser.The other the ice maker.That, why every so often the water shoots out on the floor.The ice maker is telling the valve to open.

Icemaker will not was dispense ice


My icemaker stopped producing ice. We turned off the water line to it when we went on vacation for a week. We turned the water back on when we got home and since that time it won't produce ice. We can still get water from the door dispenser though.
