Amana BCI20TL Hollow Ice

Recommended Posts

Hi.  First time I've been to this site in a few years and things have changed.  I know I have asked this "hollow ice" question in the past, but I can't pull up my oldest posts.  I would have posted in the Kitchen Appliance section, but that is now a technician only forum.  Maybe my old posts are still buried in there?  In any case...

I have an Amana bottom freezer that has served us relatively well for about 20 years now.  The ice maker has been replaced a few times.  A fan a time or two, and some other things too.  It has been producing hollow ice for a couple/few months now.  A couple days ago I replaced the ice maker unit.  When I was replacing it I noticed the fill tube had a partial plug of ice.  It worked fine for the first few ice loads and I'm again back to hollow ice.  Squeezing the fill tube indicates it once again has a partial ice plug.

I think when this happened the last time I had to replace the part that controls the water flow into the ice maker.  I'm here because I don't recall what part I replaced, and I'm also not 100% sure this is the problem.

This site has been an amazing resource over the years.

Cheers, Gary

If water pressure to unit is okay, then you need to replace the valve where water connects to refrigerator
