Ice maker had no water and quit making ice

I removed the old ice maker as described by the DIY video and had no problem except, I had to remove the ice tray from the motor section so the end cap could be changed. This only required removal of two Phillips screws on the case of the motor assembly, that are used to to secure the tray. Once the tray was off, the ice ejector could be removed and the end cap was free to change. Everything was re-installed in reverse order and unit was mounted. An FYI to anyone with slow ice making, will need to check their freezer temperature. Make sure it's set to get as cold as 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit. After installing new maker, it was not making ice fast enough, only to find my freezer temperature needed to be changed as well. Everything is working as it should now.

The ice maker was easily replaced, however I still had no ice. I ended up using an on-line repair service which determined that the problem was the water inlet valve. Replacing it was beyond my expertise so I hired an appliance repairman.

After reading the articles previous owners wrote, I tackled the repair. There were no big problems until I had to change out the water line on the icemaker tray--that part was for a different frig--so it had to be changed out with the Amana water line part that was enclosed. I couldn't get that part removed, so I had to have my husband change it out. He then finished the installation. Everything went smoothly, just my pride wanted me to finish it all by myself.

Musty taste to water from refridgerator water dispenser.

Replaced cold water dispenser reservoir. Removed back access panel on bottom of refridgerator. Cut hoses using a wire cutter and removed old reservoir. Installed new unit (one screw). Routed hoses through bottom of refridgerator. Cut length to allow hose splicing just beneath resevoir. Connected hoses using hose splicers provided with the part. Musty taste is better if a couple glasses of water are run through the unit before drinking each time. Previously the water never got better. I think more hoses need to be replaced in the door to fully solve the problem. Repair took less than 30 minutes.

Ice maker stopped working. Turned out a connection on the heating bar shorted out.

Pulled the plug on the refrig. ( This is important since the heating bar on the bottom of the ice maker could come on as soon as you plug it in and burn your hand ). Removed the ice bin to get it out of the way and then removed the 1/4" hex screw from the support bracket under the old ice maker ( don't lose it ). Pushed up on the old ice maker to dislodge it from the 2 support clips on the top of the ice maker. Squeezed both sides of the wire harness plug and pulled it out and removed the old ice maker. Removed the wire harness and level bar from the old ice maker and installed them on the new ice maker. Plugged the ice maker wire harness into the female receptacle in the freezer. Popped the ice maker in to the top support clips making sure the rubber water chute from the refrig. was in place in the round ice maker receptacle. Plugged bak in the refrig. and I was getting ice in about 2 hours. Working fine after 1 week producing plenty of ice. RussK---

following the advice of this site, purchased a new ice maker. Old one was simple to unhook and remove and new one was just as easy to install. Within no time at all, I had ice being made and it has been working perfect since. Thank you for the help...

slow water flow icemaker was making hollow ice cubes

I removed the bottom fabric type panel on the back of my refrigerator.The copper supply tube leads to the water inlet valve. Turned off water supply to the refrigerator and dis-connected the water supply tube (copper line)that hooks to the inlet valve. Removed two screws holding the inlet valve bracket to the refrigerator frame. I then pulled the whole unit back a couploe inches and then dis-connected two wires with quick type connections and another ground wire from the bracket. I then unscrewed two water supply tubes(plastic) that go under the refrigerator. These tubes supply water to the refrigerator and icemaker. I then pulled the valve assembly from the bracket and then reconnected the new valve/s in reverse order. After turning on the water I used the water dispensor on the refrigerator door to fill and empty several glasses to get rid of any contamination in the water lines. Very quickly I had a really strong water supply for the water dispensor and solid ice cubes. After a couple weeks however the ice cube maker stuck open and flooded my kitchen, so if you do this watch for problems for awhile and shut off the water supply if you go on vacation. This job was pretty easy and I wouldn't be afraid to try it. Gary

It wasn't quite as easy to get to the bolts as the video showed. The lay out of the part wasn't exactly like the video either. However, I managed to put the new part in. Unfortunately, it didn't solve the problem. At first the fridge cycled on and off but after 12 hrs it started to freeze liquids again. Since the appliance was 17 years old we opted to just get a new one.
