Hi Team HELP ME (PLEASE). I have a 10 year old Amana side by side fridge that recently stopped making ice. I felt the ice in the maker so I figured the motor was hung up,and it was. The gear that comes out of the motor was stuck. So I took it apart polished it and lubed it and put it back in the fridge...in 10 min we had water in a couple hours still no harvest. So the next day I took it out and put a cheater wire on the heating element and that got warm...put it back in,,,same thing a block off ice.So I gave in I had my wife order a new one...After swapping the main harness to the new one and installing it I don't even get water....is my new ice maker bound? or is my fridge huanted?:yikes:       Thanks

Cannot seem to see a model and manufacturer number nor what part number the new ice maker might be. A new ice maker will take 2-4 hours to cool down and call for water also.....

Hi, I called a service tech for my Amana SBI20S2W and they said I have a sealed system problem and its not worth having the system evacuated and recharged. My fridge is fine temp wise and the coolest the freezer gets is 20 so the sensor in the ice maker is not saying its time for harvest. Well a counter depth side by side fridge to fit in my space is $2500 bucks. Can you tell me why evacuating the system is not worth the risk. Thanks:?

Yes, the freezer needs to be about 10 degrees for the ice maker to work.  You can have several different types of sealed system problems.  Inefficent compressor=several hundred $$$'s, freon leak=find the leak, repair, recharge=could be several hundred $$$'s, partial restriction, find the restriction, repair and recharge=several hundred $$$'s. And you might still have a damaged compressor with the last 2 options.....best to replace the frig with a new one with a new warrantee and whatever you get, BUY THE EXTENDED PROTECTION WARRANTEES AVAILABLE, you will need it with the new stuff out there.
