The ice maker had been dripping and than stopped making ice. I worked with it and got it to work again for a few days and than the same problem occured.

I watched the video on line first. I shut off the power to the refreigerator. I took the one screw out on the bottom of the ice-maker and pushed up on the ice maker. Than I disconnected the power harness inside the refrigerator. I took it out and changed out the harness from the old one to the new one and also the bar that dumps the ice. I reconnectected the harness to the back of the refrigerator, made sure that the water spout lined up correctly. Pushed the ice maker down on the screws and reconnected the screw that I had removed. Waited about 1 hour and had ice cubes. This was an easy process after watching the video.

The ice maker that came with the refig stopped working after 1 YR!

If you watch the video on PartsSelect that will give you a general idea of how to do the repair except mine was in a bottom drawer freezer. You have streach a little to get to the screws holding the ice maker to un-screw them just enough to lift the ice maker out.

Ice maker was leaking water into ice container, causing ice jam of scroll

Changing the ice maker was easy as per video instructions. I did not shut down power during replacement. The new unit started making ice within an hour or so, however, the next morning, liquids on the refrigerator top shelf were freezing up! I lowered the frig temp set point one number, but the top shelf continued to freeze. My son had had a similar experience, and he suggested turning power off to the unit for several minutes. I turned off the breaker for about 15 minutes, then back on. The top shelf freezing problem cleared up, and everything started working like it should!

This process actually took 3 tries to resolve. Read the entire article it may save you money.
Before each trial I shut off the water and unplugged the refrigerator.
Trial 1
I went to the website and chose the part that had the highest percentage of resolution (78%), which was the actual icemaker. I followed the direction that another person described in detail how to replace. It was easy but it wasn’t the solution. It took me 15 minutes to switch out using a screwdriver and a nut-driver. Turned on the water and plugged the refrigerator in. However, after doing so I still had no ice.
Trial 2
Next, I tried replacing the small water pump that pumps water up to the ice maker. The part is called
the “Double Outlet Water Valve”. Here again on the premise that it was the next highest percentage part to fix my problem. I replaced this part in about 15 minutes with an adjustable wrench and a knife. This time a turned on the refrigerator and water squirted out of the plastic hose that feeds into ice maker’s water feed tube. Still no ice.
Trial 3
The last part to replace was the water feed tube which is a vinyl tube that extends from the outside back of the refrigerator to the ice maker. I read that if water shoots out of the plastic hose that attaches to the “Water Feed Tube” is most likely frozen. So, I replace the “Water Feed Tube”. I disconnected the plastic hose in the back and took some pliers and pulled the “Water Feed Tube” out from the back. It was frozen solid. I cut the new “Water Feed Tube” to the same length and inserted it into the back of the refrigerator. I will most like not go in all the way until you guide it in to the icemaker from inside the freezer. I used some good clear silicone caulk around the outside of the “Water Feed Tube” and attached the plastic hose to it with a small clamp. I was done in about 15 minutes. I plugged in the refrigerator and I let the caulk fully dry for 24 hours. Then I turned on the water. Within the hour I had ice. Finally!
What I determined was the “Water Feed Tube” froze up and caused the “Double Outlet Water Valve” to fail. So, it was necessary to replace both but not the ice maker. What happens in the process of making ice is as the ice maker cycles it calls for water from the “Double Outlet Water Valve”. You should first check to see if the “Water Feed Tube” is frozen. Remove it, use a hair dryer to thaw it out. Reinsert it and re-clamp it to the plastic hose. If that doesn’t resolve your problem or you find that it wasn’t filled with ice, make sure the “Double Outlet Water Valve” is pumping water to the ice maker. If it is, then, replace the ice maker. If it isn’t, replace the “Double Outlet Water Valve”. In other words, don’t go on the percentages. Go on the cheapest.

Bottom freezer was making constant grinding noises, then stopped making ice altogether. I researched the Amanda site, read the customer feedback info and instructions to replace the ice maker. We've been fortunate to have had no ice maker issues for this Amana unit for ten years! The fridge and fre

1.Pull refrigerator out from wall and unplug. 2.Turn the water source off! 3.Remove one screw from bottom and loosen two screws at the top of the ice maker. 4.Pull ice maker down and unplug the power connector. It has 2 locking tabs so press to release the lock. The water tube will pull out on it's own.5. Remove the cable, front cover and clips from old unit and install on the replacement unit.6.Re-Install new ice maker in reverse order. Always a good idea to take pictures before you do changes in case you are not sure.

(Put the light-blue piece in a safe place.) Take foil away from filter. With 1/4 turn in the clockwise direction, twist the filter into its position.

Thanks for the control board. However, it arrived in two days not overnight, UPS noted on their tracking site the error was their own. Also, the part did not come with installation instructions or programming instructions. Found on youtube a video that described in detail the programming procedure: . . . . . very helpful.

Thanks,
Marc

I initially thought the defrost heater or sensor were bad and replaced them. About a week later the problem reappeared. I ordered the control board assembly and after arrival I did the following: Went on-line, located the part on the fridge parts diagrams and figured out how to remove the controller cover (use two flat screwdrivers from behind). After the cover removal unplug the two connectors and lift out the sensor from its mount. Remove the LED Display/Button Board then the microcontroller board. They literally lift out. With the new controller you have to gently break the display board from the controller - the board is scribed along the break-away area. Do this on a flat surface. The actual board installation and hook-up took less than 5 minutes to reassemble. MAKE SURE THE REFRIGERATOR IS UMPLUGGED - I should have said that FIRST.

Replaced the CNTRL-ELEC board with ease. Just slide back and remove the light cover. Use flat tip screw driver to release and drop down unit. Remove connectors and attach to new board after breaking in half to fit same as old one. Programming is easy, just look at the CODE on the name plate inside the door. Mine is 0-1. Follow procedure of holding the light switch off while touching the freezer control 3 times within 10 seconds. A "P" for programming will appear. Still holding the light switch, touch the refrig control to set for your code. Freezer button says 0, refrig button says 1. When you release the light switch, the programming is done. Mine starts out with a 4-4. It is now working quieter than when it was new and is very cold again.
