Amana ARB9058CW Ice Maker Leaking into Ice Bucket

8 posts in this topic

Amana bottom mount keeps leaking water into left rear corner of ice bucket.  

 

Verified water pressure at supply line - house is connected to municipal water and has great pressure.

 

Both water valves have been changed.

 

It makes ice fine, just keeps dribbling water in the back left corner.

 

Any suggestions?

Is the coating peeling off of the inside of the ice cube mold? Once the coating comes off they can leak through the material underneath.

 Thanks for the tip Brother Bryan!  I will definitely check that out.

No problem. The water in our area is rough on ice makers. I've seen 4 year old refrigerators with the coating peeling off already.

Generally 5 years on the coating. If it's peeling, it is recommended to replace the icemaker anyway. Also check the ice maker water feed tube and the receiving cup on the ice maker for ice buildup.

Thanks for all the tips!  I will post my findings after I go back out on this one.

I pulled the ice maker out today on the refrigerator in question and the finish was indeed flaking/coming off the mold area.

 

There was no ice build-up in feed cup or supply tube.

 

I put a new ice maker in this afternoon.  Hopefully that will take care of the leaking into the ice bucket.   

 

Thanks for all the advice!
