Ice Maker Problem
I replaced the solenoids in my amana side by side ice maker because I wasn't getting water to it. Still no ice. I switched the wires on the switches and I DID get water to the water dispensor so i assume whatever sends the message to the solenoid needs to be replaced?? Would that be the ice maker unit?

Increase certainty that your fix will work and reduce money down the drain by posting a schematic so we can all help out. It's probably pasted on the back of your fridge.

The solenoid can have a slow leak and the water will freeze in the fill tube where the water goes into the icemaker. You can pull the tube out with a twist and examine in and melt the ice if that is the problem. If it is leaking the solenoid needs to be replaced.
