Question about Amana Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have an Amana model no. ARS2663AW refrigerator with a built in ice-maker. The ice-maker keeps freezing up. By that I mean the tube that brings the water down to the ice-maker tray seems to freeze. This morning there is water leaking out of the fridge. This has happened about 6-10 times before.

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 icemaker.repair if needed.

Your problem may be at the electric valve where the water comes into the refrigerator. There is a screen and an orifice that may be restricted (plugged).

SOURCE: Amana Side-by-Side refrigerator hot spot

hi tanks for the question there are heaters at the spots you said were hot and those heaters are there to prevent moist air from hitting cold surface and create warer droplets from forming on those surfaces i would remove the back of the fridge and vacuum it out that should solve your problem thanks the appliance doc

SOURCE: Why does the defrost water not go into the tray?

The drain hole in the drain trough is probably clogged up with some gunk.
Use a turkey baster and VERY VERY hot water to try and clear the drain line.

SOURCE: water leak in ice maker tube

Hi, Make sure the inlet tube has no restrictions. Sometimes ice will start to form inside the inlet tube and cause pressure so the hose leaks. If this does not help. you might need to change the change the inlet tube
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi Jan, the problem is a bad ice maker water valve. Pull the refrigerator out and look for the plastic water line that's going to the tube that's freezing. Follow that tube to the faulty water valve. The problem is, its leaking water slowly to the ice maker and it freezes up . Easy fix : Good luck

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."

it seems to me (no expert) that you have an ice buildup in the tubing to the freezing portion of that unit. I can only suggest to turn off the Refrigerator for a little while, an hour or two at most, and see if the tubing thaws.

Ice maker freezing up


If it is only the fill tube that is freezing up, or getting full of ice, than your water valve is leaking (letting drops of water thru to your ice maker and filling the icemaker fill tube up and freezing). If this is the case, replace the dual water valve (part # 1071263) located in the back of the refrigerator, just follow the water line from your wall into the refrigerator. Make sure you turn off the water to the refrigerator and also unplug it. The dual water valve is the one that has two water lines, one going to the icemaker and one going to the water dispenser. On this model, I think you only have one water valve. On some you have two, the primary water valve and a secondary water valve (the dual valve). If this is your case, I would highly recommend you replace both. As far as the Refrigerator side freezing things up, I think that is a whole different issue. Please post back.
