Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

My Amana icemaker & water dispenser has stopped working. Water is no longer flowing into the system. What would be the most likely cause? Note: the actual product # is SXD27NL, which is not listed, but it is a side-by-side Amana.


Answers :

HI. This is an inlet issue.

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush
or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

Given this Frigidare side by side, ice and water. Lable inside says it's 19.8 cu ft with measurements of 32 x 33 x 67. Model number MRS20WRGWO. I can't find anything on this machine. The Frigidare model numbers are nothing like this. They don't list list cu ft in their product list. It seems to work ok, looks fairly new, in good shape. I'm just baffled why there is no info on it. It doesn't seem to exsist. I had to enter a different model number to post here because it came up invalid.

My red light is flashing in my Kitchenaid side by side refrigerator freezer. The ice was working, but red light flashes and no water comes out. I dumped the ice out, and noticed the bottom of the cube bin has ice in the "mechanisms" that cause the ice to dispense. We do have a filter that registers 0% left in it...but I don't believe that's the problem. What is causing the water to not flow from the dispenser...when the ice maker is still dispensing ice. The unit is 2 years old.

I recently replaced my water filter on my Kitchenaid side-by-side refrigerator, model KSCS251, and since then my icemaker no longer makes ice, nor do I hear any water flow into it. The water, however, does flow out of the dispenser and the water filter is full. I don't see any arm that regulates the flow of water into the icemaker and I can't find a diagram of the water line to see if anything is causing it to be plugged. Can you help?

I recently purchased a used Amana Side By Side refrigerator that's a few years old. I've recently noticed water on the floor around the bottom of the refrigerator on the freezer side. I don't have the water line hooked up to it so I'm thinking the water is coming from the self-defrosting process. Is there a hose or tube that I can zero in on to see if that's the problem? If so, where might I find it? Thank you.

Water dispenser I recently made a post saying my ice maker was overflowing on my westinghouse side by side fridge. Initailly i thought that it was the fridge scheduling too much water to the ice maker and it overflowing. Now i have discovered that it is not really that. What is happening is that when i get cold water out of the water dispenser water also flows into the ice maker causing it to overflow. It seems to get in to the ice maker from the usual way it would when the fridge makes ice but
