Question about Amana Refrigerators
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).

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

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.
