An open thermistor or thermistor circuit will result in
failure of refrigerator to cool.
Shorted thermistor will cause refrigerator to run 100
percent of time except for defrost.
•
Freezer temperature setting and thermistor value
will determine if compressor/condenser fan and
evaporator fan switches are open or closed.
Compressor/condenser fan switch must be open
for 6 minutes before switch can close again
(compressor dwell time).
•
Cut-out and cut-in temperature values must be
reached and maintained for 15 seconds before
output state will change (digital delay).

Electronic Functional Description
Adaptive Defrost Operation
Defrost occurs after predetermined length of
compressor run time. Compressor run time between
defrosts changes, or adapts, depending upon recent
history of defrost lengths (time it takes for defrost
terminator to open after defrost heater has been
turned on).
•
Defrost terminator opens at 9°C (48°F) and closes
at -9°C (15°F).
•
Compressor run time between defrosts (CRTD)
will be one of 3 values under normal operation:
CRTD 1 (6 hours) or CRTD 2 (9 hours) or CRTD 3
(12 hours).
If defrost length is low (DT-LO defined as 21
minutes) indicating small frost load, CRTD for
next defrost cycle is advanced to next level.
If defrost length is high (DI - HI defined as 24
minutes) indicating large frost load, CRTD for
next defrost cycle is lowered to next level.
If defrost length is between 21 and 24 minutes,
CRTD for next defrost cycle remains the same.
Initial value at power up CRTD 0 is 3 hours.
•
Vacation Mode CRTD equals 72 hours. Vacation
Mode CRTD is interrupted with door openings.
Defrost interval will revert back to interval before
Vacation Mode. Three things must occur to reach
Vacation Mode CRTD:
1) Defrost interval must be CRTD 3 (12 hours).
2) Both refrigerator and freezer doors must have
remained closed since last defrost cycle.
3) Defrost thermostat must have opened in less
than 21 minutes during last defrost cycle.
•
Six minute dwell time occurs after defrost
terminator opens before compressor and
condenser fan motor will operate. Ten minute
dwell time occurs after defrost terminator opens
before evaporator fan motor will operate. Dwell
time can be bypassed by disconnecting power to
the unit for 30 seconds.
•
Conventional defrost can be selected in Program
Mode B.

Condenser
Description
Condenser is a tube and wire
construction and is located in
compressor compartment.
Test Procedures
Leaks in condenser can usually be detected by using an electronic leak detector
or soap solution. Look for signs of compressor oil when checking for leaks. A
certain amount of compressor oil is circulated with refrigerant.
Condenser is on the high pressure
discharge side of compressor.
Condenser function is to transfer heat
absorbed by refrigerant to ambient.
Leaks in post condenser loop are rare because loop is a one-piece copper tube.
For minute leaks
1. Separate condenser from rest of refrigeration system and pressurize
condenser up to a maximum of 16 bars (235 PSI) with a refrigerant and dry
nitrogen combination.

under normal conditions. This would be
indicated by higher than normal head
pressures, long run time, and high
wattage. Remove any lint accumulation,
etc. that would restrict normal air
movement through condenser.
!
WARNING
From condenser the refrigerant flows into
a post condenser loop which helps
control exterior condensation on flange,
center mullion, around freezer door and
then through the drier to the evaporator
and into the compressor through the
suction line.
Damper Control
April 1998
Damper control balances the air delivery
between refrigerator and freezer
compartments.
Integral capillary activates damper
control and door closes restricting flow of
air from freezer compartment to
refrigerator compartment.
There are no electrical connections to
damper control on non-electronic units.
See Electronic Functional Description for
explanation of damper control on
electronic units.
Subject capillary to appropriate temperature (see tech sheet for model being
serviced).
Damper door should close to within 6 mm of completely shut.

NOTE: Drier used in R12 sealed system is not interchangeable with
drier used in R134a sealed system. Always replace the drier with Amana
part number B2150504.
Before opening refrigeration system, recover HFC134a refrigerant for safe
disposal.
Cut drier out of system using the following procedure. Do not unbraze drier.
Applying heat to remove drier will drive moisture into the system.
1. Score capillary tube close to drier and break.
2. Reform inlet tube to drier allowing enough space for large tube cutter.
3. Cut circumference of drier 3 cm below condenser inlet tube joint to drier.
4. Remove drier.
5. Apply heat trap paste on post condenser tubes to protect grommets from
high heat.
6. Unbraze remaining part of drier. Remove drier from system.
7. Discard drier in safe place. Do not leave drier with customer. If refrigerator is
under warranty, old drier must accompany warranty claim.
! CAUTION
To avoid death or severe personal injury, cut drier at correct location.
Cutting drier at incorrect location will allow desiccant beads to scatter. If
spilled, completely clean area of beads.
Evaporator
Inner volume of evaporator allows
liquefied refrigerant discharged from
capillary to expand into refrigerant gas.
Expansion cools evaporate tube and fin

section to refrigerant.
Passing through suction line to
compressor, the refrigerant picks up
superheat (a relationship between
pressure and temperature that assures
complete vaporization of liquid
refrigerant) as result of capillary on
suction line.
Test for leaks in evaporator with electronic leak detector or with soap solution.
Compressor oil is circulated with refrigerant; check for oil when checking for
leaks.

WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, disconnect electrical power source to unit and discharge
capacitor through a 10,000 ohm resistor before attempting to service, unless test procedures require power to be
connected. Ensure all earth wires are connected before certifying unit as repaired and/or operational.
Refrigeration System
Electronic Control
Compressor forces high temperature vapor into fancooled tube and wire condenser where vapor is cooled
and condensed into high pressure liquid by circulation
of air across condenser coil. (See Refrigerant Flow
Diagram.)
Electronic control is not repairable. If any component
in control is faulty, entire control must be replaced.
NOTE: Repair or replace all faulty line voltage
components before testing or replacing
electronic control. Do not assume problems are
caused by electronic control system. Opened,
shorted, earthed or otherwise faulty line voltage
components (including power cord and wiring)
can create problems that appear to be caused
by electronic control.
High pressure liquid passes through molecular sieve
drier and into capillary tube. Small inside diameter of
capillary offers resistance decreasing pressure and
temperature of liquid discharged into evaporator.
Capillary diameter and length is carefully designed for
each system.
Refrigerated Chiller Fresh Deli Drawer
Capillary enters evaporator at top back. Combined
liquid and saturated gas flows through back to bottom
of coil and into suction line. Aluminium tube evaporator
coil is located in freezer compartment where
circulating evaporator fan moves air through coil and

Chiller Fresh system is a deli drawer in a sleeve.
Control on inner wall of fresh food compartment allows
freezer air to circulate into sleeve maintaining

compartment.
Boot must be in place over air inlet. Set to maintain
desired temperature in deli drawer.
Large surface of evaporator allows heat to be
absorbed from both fresh food and freezer
compartments by airflow over evaporator coil causing
some of the liquid to evaporate. Temperature of
evaporator tubing near end of running cycle may vary
from -25° to -32°C.
Beverage Chiller
Control on left inner wall of fresh food compartment
allows freezer air to circulate into beverage chiller
maintaining temperature up to 3°C colder than fresh
food compartment. Valve on outside wall of
refrigerator door allows freezer air to pass to beverage
chiller.
Saturated gas is drawn off through suction line where
superheated gas enters compressor. To raise
temperature of gas, suction line is placed in heat
exchange with capillary.
Fresh food compartment temperature can be affected
by additional cold air so freezer temperature control
may need adjustment after beverage chiller
temperature is set.
Nonelectronic Temperature Controls
Freezer compartment temperature is regulated by air
sensing thermostat at top rear of fresh food
compartment which actuates compressor. Control
capillary is inserted in well which routes capillary into
freezer. Control should be set to maintain freezer
temperature between -17° to -18°C.
Fresh food compartment temperature is regulated an
air damper control governing amount of refrigerated
air entering fresh food compartment from freezer.
Fresh food compartment temperature should be
between 3° and 4°C.

WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, disconnect electrical power source to unit and discharge
capacitor through a 10,000 ohm resistor before attempting to service, unless test procedures require power to be
connected. Ensure all earth wires are connected before certifying unit as repaired and/or operational.
Defrost System–Nonelectronic Models
Every 6 or 8 hours of compressor run time defrost
timer activates radiant electric defrost heater
suspended from evaporator. After 33 minutes of
defrost cycle time, timer restores circuit to
compressor.
Defrost terminator (thermostat) and fusible link are
wired in series with defrost heater and evaporator fan
motor. Terminator opens and breaks circuit when
preset high temperature is reached. After defrost
thermostat opens, thermostat remains open until end
of defrost cycle until cooling cycle starts and
terminator senses present low temperature and
closes.
Fusible link opens if terminator fails open and preset
high temperature is reached.
Defrost heater is suspended on left side of evaporator
coil and across bottom to keep defrost drain free
flowing during defrost. Defrost water is caught in
trough under evaporator coil and flows through drain
hole in liner and drain tubing into drain pan. Heated air
circulated by condenser fan over pan evaporates
water.

Service Equipment
Drier Replacement
Listed below is equipment needed for proper servicing
of HFC134a systems. Verify equipment is confirmed
by manufacturer as being compatible with HFC134a
and ester oil system.
Prior to opening refrigeration system, recover
HFC134a refrigerant for safe disposal.
Equipment must be exclusively used for HFC134a.
Exclusive use of equipment only applies to italic items.
Cut drier out of system by completing the following
steps. Do not unbraze drier filter. Applying heat to
remove drier will allow moisture into system.
Every time sealed HFC134a system is repaired, drier
filter must be replaced with, part # B2150504.
• Evacuation pump
Check with vacuum pump supplier to verify equipment
is compatible for HFC134a. Robinair, Model 15600, 2
stage, 170 litres (6 cubic feet) per minute pump is
recommended.
• Four-way manifold gauge set, with low loss hoses
• Leak detector
• Charging cylinder
• Line piercing saddle valve
(Schroeder valves). Seals must be HFC134a and ester
oil compatible. Line piercing valves may be used for
diagnosis but are not suitable for evacuation or
charging, due to minute holes pierced in tubing. Do not
leave mechanical access valves on system. Valves
eventually will leak. Molecules of HFC134a are smaller
than other refrigerants and will leak where other
refrigerants would not.

Capacitor
Line Piercing Valves
Attaching Capacitor for Compressor Test
Line piercing valves can be used for diagnosis, but
are not suitable for evacuating or charging due to
holes pierced in tubing by valves.
5. Connect a known good capacitor into circuit as shown
above. For proper capacitor size and rating, see
Technical Sheet for unit under test.
NOTE: Do not leave line piercing valves on system.
Connection between valve and tubing is not
hermetically sealed. Leaks will occur.
NOTE: Ensure test cord cables and fuses meet
specifications for unit under test (see Technical
Sheet for unit under test).
Open Lines
6. Replace compressor protector cover securely.
During any processing of refrigeration system, never
leave lines open to atmosphere. Open lines allow water
vapor to enter system, making proper evacuation more
difficult.
7. Plug test cord into outlet, then press and release start
cord switch.
! CAUTION
Compressor Operational Test
To avoid damage to compressor windings, immediately
disconnect (unplug) test cord from power source if
compressor does not start. Damage to compressor
windings occurs if windings remain energized when
compressor is not running.
(short term testing only)
If compressor voltage, capacitor, overload, and motor
winding tests are successful (do not indicate a fault),
perform the following test:
1. Disconnect power to unit.
If compressor runs when direct wired, it is working
properly. Malfunction is elsewhere in system.
2. Discharge capacitor by shorting capacitor
terminals through a resistor.
If compressor does not start when direct wired, recover
system at high side. After the system is recovered,
repeat compressor direct wire test.
3. Remove leads from compressor terminals.
4. Attach test cord to compressor windings.
If compressor runs after system is recovered (but
would not operate when wired direct before recovery) a
restriction in sealed system is indicated.
• Common lead on test cord attaches to C terminal
on compressor.
• Start lead on test cord attaches to S terminal on

WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, disconnect electrical power source to unit and discharge
capacitor through a resistor before attempting to service, unless test procedures require power to be connected.
Ensure all earth wires are connected before certifying unit as repaired and/or operational.
Testing Systems Containing a Refrigerant Charge
1. Stop the operation (turn refrigerator off).
Dehydrating Sealed Refrigeration System
Moisture in a refrigerator sealed system exposed to
heat generated by the compressor and motor reacts
chemically with refrigerant and oil in the system and
forms corrosive hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids.
These acids contribute to the breakdown of motor
winding insulation and corrosion of compressor
working parts, causing compressor failure.
2. Holding leak detector exploring tube as close to
system tubing as possible, check all piping, joints,
and fittings.
NOTE: Use soap suds on areas leak detector cannot
reach or reliably test.
Testing Systems Containing No Refrigerant Charge
1. Connect cylinder of nitrogen, through gauge
manifold, to process tube of compressor and liquid
line strainer.
In addition, sludge, a residue of the chemical reaction,
coats all surfaces of sealed system, and will eventually
restrict refrigerant flow through capillary tube.
To dehydrate sealed system, evacuate system (see
paragraph Evacuation).
2. Open valves on nitrogen cylinder and gage
manifold. Allow pressure to build within sealed
system.
Leak Testing
3. Check for leaks using soap suds.
! DANGER
If a leak is detected in a joint, do not to attempt to repair
by applying additional brazing material. Joint must be
disassembled, cleaned and rebrazed. Capture refrigerant
charge (if system is charged), unbraze joint, clean all
parts, then rebraze.
To prevent serious injury or death from violent
explosions, NEVER use oxygen or acetylene for
pressure testing or clean out of refrigeration systems.
Free oxygen will explode on contact with oil. Acetylene
will explode spontaneously when put under pressure.
If leak is detected in tubing, replace tubing. If leak is
detected in either coil, replace faulty coil.
It is important to check sealed system for refrigerant
leaks. Undetected leaks can lead to repeated service
calls and eventually result in system contamination,
restrictions, and premature compressor failure.
Refrigerant leaks are best detected with halide or
electronic leak detectors.

WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, disconnect electrical power source to unit and discharge
capacitor through a 10,000 ohm resistor before attempting to service, unless test procedures require power to be
connected. Ensure all earth wires are connected before certifying unit as repaired and/or operational.
Restrictions
• If temperature of condenser tubing drops suddenly
at any point, tubing is restricted at point of
temperature drop (if restriction is severe, frost may
form at point of restriction and extend down in
direction of refrigerant flow in system). Go to step 5.
Symptoms
Restrictions in sealed system most often occur at
capillary tube or filter drier, but can exist anywhere on
liquid side of system.
Restrictions reduce refrigerant flow rate and heat
removal rate. Wattage drops because compressor is
not circulating normal amount of refrigerant.
3. Visually check system for kinks in refrigeration line
which is causing restriction. Correct kink and
repeat step 2.
Common causes of total restrictions are moisture,
poorly soldered joints, or solid contaminants. Moisture
freezes at evaporator inlet end of capillary tube. Solid
contaminants collect in filter drier.
4. Turn unit off and time how long it takes high and
low pressure gauges to equalize:
If restriction is on low side, suction pressure will be in a
vacuum and head pressure will be near normal
If restriction is on high side, suction pressure will be in
a vacuum and head pressure will be higher than
normal during pump out cycle.
• If pressure equalization takes longer than 10
minutes, a restriction exists in the capillary tube or
drier filter. Go to step 5.
• If pressure equalization takes less than 10 minutes,
system is not restricted. Check for other possible
causes of malfunction.
5. Recover refrigerant in sealed system.
Refrigeration occurs on low pressure side of partial
restriction. There will be a temperature difference at
the point of restriction. Frost and/or condensation will
be present in most case at the point of restriction.
Also, system requires longer to equalize.
NOTE: Before opening any refrigeration system,
capture refrigerant in system for safe disposal.
6. Remove power from unit.
! CAUTION
Slight or partial restriction can give the same
symptoms as refrigerant shortage including lower than
normal back pressure, head pressure, wattage, and
warmer temperatures.
To reduce risk of personal injury or property damage,
take necessary precautions against high temperatures
required for brazing.
Total restriction on the discharge side of compressor
when restriction is between compressor and first half
of condenser results in higher than normal head
pressure and wattage while low side is being pumped
out.
7. Remove and replace restricted device.
8. Evacuate sealed system.
9. Charge system to specification.
NOTE: Do not use captured or recycled refrigerant in
Amana units. Captured or recycled refrigerant
voids any Amana and/or compressor
manufacturer's warranty.
Testing for Restrictions
To determine if a restriction exists:
1. Attach gauge and manifold between suction and
discharge sides of sealed system.
NOTE: Charge system with exact amount of refrigerant.
See Technical Sheet or refer to unit nameplate
for correct refrigerant charge. Inaccurately
charged system will cause future problems.
2. Turn unit on and allow pressure on each side to
stabilize. Inspect condenser side of system.
Tubing on condenser should be warm and
temperature should be equal throughout (no
sudden drops at any point along tubing).
• If temperature of condenser tubing is consistent
throughout, go to step 4.

and parts, causing premature breakdown.
5. After compound gauge (low side) drops to
approximately 29 inches gauge, open valve “C” to
vacuum thermocouple gauge and take micron
reading.
Before opening system, evaporator coil must be at
ambient temperature to minimize moisture infiltration
into system.
NOTE: A high vacuum pump can only produce a good
vacuum if oil in pump is not contaminated.
Evacuation
To evacuate sealed refrigeration system:
6. Continue evacuating system until vacuum gauge
registers 600 microns.
7. At 600 microns, close valve “A” to vacuum pump and
allow micron reading in system to balance. Micron
level will rise.
1. Connect vacuum pump, vacuum tight manifold set
with high vacuum hoses, thermocouple vacuum
gauge and charging cylinder as shown in illustration.
• If in 2 minutes, micron level stabilizes at 1000
microns or below, system is ready to be charged.
Evacuation should be done through I.D. opening of
tubes not through line piercing valve.
• If micron level rises above 1000 microns and
stabilizes, open valve “A” and continue evacuating.
2. Connect low side line to compressor process tube.
3. Connect high side line to drier/process tube.
• If micron reading rises rapidly and does not
stabilize, a leak still exists in system.
4. Evacuate both simultaneously. With valve “C” and “F”
closed, open all other valves and start vacuum pump.
RS5290000 Rev. 0
Close valve “A” to vacuum pump and valve “C” to
vacuum gauge. Invert charging cylinder and open
charging cylinder valve “F” to add partial charge for

Charging
NOTE: Do not use captured or recycled refrigerant in
Amana units. Captured or recycled refrigerant
voids any warranty.
Refrigerant Charge
Refrigerant charge in all capillary tube systems is
critical and exact amount is required for proper
performance. Factory charges are shown on serial
plate. Do not use refrigerant other than shown on
serial plate.
NOTE: Charge system with exact amount of refrigerant.
See Technical Sheet or refer to unit serial plate
for correct refrigerant charge. Inaccurately
charged system will cause future problems.
To charge system:
1. Close valves “A” to vacuum pump and “C” to vacuum
gauge and “E” to low side manifold gauge.
2. Set scale on dial-a-charge cylinder for corresponding
HFC134a pressure reading.
3. Open valve “F” to charging cylinder and let exact
amount of refrigerant flow from cylinder into system.
Close valve.
Low side gauge pressure should rise shortly after
opening charging cylinder valve as system pressure
equalizes through capillary tube.
If pressure does not equalize, a restriction typically
exists at capillary/drier braze joint.
4. If pressure equalizes, open valve “E” to low side
manifold gauge and pinch off high side drier process
tube.
5. Start compressor and draw remaining refrigerant
from charging hoses and manifold into compressor
through compressor process tube.
6. To check high side, pinch-off drier process tube.
Close valve “D” to high side gauge. If high side
pressure rises, repeat high side pinch-off and open
valve “D”. Repeat until high side pinch-off does not
leak.
7. Pinch-off compressor process tube and remove
charging hose. Braze stub closed while compressor is
operating.
8. Disconnect power. Remove charging hose and braze
high side drier process tube closed.
9. Recheck for refrigerant leaks.

HFC134a Service Information
!
HFC134a is alternative refrigerant for CFC12.
HFC134a has an ozone depletion potential (ODP)
factor of 0.0 and a global warming potential (GWP)
factor of 0.27. HFC134a is not flammable and has
acceptable toxicity levels. HFC134a is not
interchangeable with CFC12. There are significant
differences between HFC134a and CFC12 which
must be considered when handling and processing
refrigeration system.

To minimize contamination, exercise extreme
care when servicing HFC134A sealed systems.
• No trace of other refrigerants is allowed in HFC134a
systems. Chlorinated molecules in other refrigerants
such as CFC12, etc. will lead to capillary tube
plugging.
• Ester oil is used in HFC134a systems. Do not use
mineral oil. HFC134a and mineral oils cannot be
mixed. If mineral oils were used in HFC134a systems,
lubricant would not return to compressor and would
cause early compressor failure. If significant amount
of oil has been lost from compressor, replace oil
rather than adding oil.
• Ester oils used in HFC134a systems are so
hydroscopic that by the time an inadequate system
performance is detected, oil will be saturated with
moisture.
• CFC12 has much higher tolerance to system
processing materials, such as drawing compounds,
rust inhibitors, and cleaning compounds, than
HFC134a. Such materials are not soluble in HFC134a
systems. If materials were to be washed from system
surfaces by ester oils, they could accumulate and
eventually plug capillary tube.
• Care must be taken to minimize moisture from
entering HFC134a system. Do not leave compressor
or system open to atmosphere for more than 10
minutes. Excessive moisture in HFC134a system will
react with compressor oil and generate acid.
• Compressor must be replaced when performing low
side leak repair.
• Drier filter must always be replaced with service drier
filter, part #B2150504.

Replacement Service Compressor
Brazing
HFC134a service compressors will be charged with
ester oil and pressurized with dry nitrogen. Before
replacement compressor is installed, pull out 1 rubber
plug. A pop from pressure release should be heard. If
a pop sound is not heard, do not use compressor.
Positive pressure in compressor is vital to keep
moisture out of ester oil. Do not leave compressor
open to atmosphere for more than 10 minutes.
! CAUTION
To reduce risk of personal injury or property damage,
take necessary precautions against high temperatures
required for brazing.
Satisfactory results require cleanliness, experience,
and use of proper materials and equipment.
Compressor Testing Procedures
!
Connections to be brazed must be properly sized, free
of rough edges, and clean.
WARNING
Generally accepted brazing materials are:
• Copper to copper joints: SIL-FOS (alloy of 15
percent silver, 80 percent copper, and 5 percent
phosphorous). Use without flux. Recommended
brazing temperature is approximately 760°C (1400°F).
Do not use for copper to steel connection.
• Copper to steel joints: SILVER SOLDER (alloy of 30
percent silver, 38 percent copper, 32 percent zinc).
Use with fluoride based flux. Recommended brazing
temperature is approximately 649°C (1200°F).
• Steel to steel joints: SILVER SOLDER (see copper
to steel joints).
• Brass to copper joints: SILVER SOLDER (see
copper to steel joints).
• Brass to steel joints: SILVER SOLDER (see copper
to steel joints).
To avoid death or severe personal injury, never use
oxygen, air or acetylene for pressure testing or clean
out of refrigeration system. Use of oxygen, air, or
acetylene may result in violent explosion. Oxygen may
explode on contact with oil and acetylene will
spontaneously explode when under pressure.
Refer to “Temperature and Relationship Chart” for
operating watts, test points, and temperature relationship
test.
• Temperature testing is accomplished by using 3 lead
thermocouple temperature tester in specific locations.
Test point T-1 is outlet on evaporator coil and T-2 is
inlet. Test point T-3 is suction tube temperature
midway between where armaflex ends and suction
port of compressor (approximately 12 inches from
compressor).
• Thermocouple tips should be attached securely to
specified locations.
• Do not test during initial pull down. Allow one off cycle
or balanced temperature condition to occur before
proceeding with testing.
• Refrigerator must operate minimum of 20 minutes
after thermocouples are installed.
• Turn control to colder to obtain required on time.
• Wattage reading must be recorded in conjunction with
temperature test to confirm proper operation.
• Suction and head pressures are listed on
“Temperature and Relationship Chart” Normally these
are not required for diagnosis but used for
confirmation on systems which have been opened.

Ice Maker
Operation
When the thermostat has sensed temperature -8.3°
±1.5° C (17° ±3° F), the thermostat closes. The current now has a path through the thermostat to the motor (see wiring diagram). The motor is linked with the
drive gear. From the module, there are copper contacts that ride on copper strips on backside of drive
gear. As the drive gear rotates, these contacts will
make or break a circuit (tract) to the copper strips to
operate the ice maker.
The design of the ice maker allows all of the components to be tested without removing the ice maker or
moving the refrigerator away from the wall to access
the water valve.
Remove the cover and you will see the test points
identified on the module.
N = Neutral side of line
M = Motor connection

Short T and H with an insulated piece of wire to run
motor. If the motor doesn't run, replace module assembly.
If the motor runs, replace the bimetal thermostat.
3. Leave the jumper in for half of a revolution, touch
the heater mold. If the mold feels warm, the heater
is working properly.
Remove jumper and the water valve will be energized in last half of revolution providing mold
heater has not failed.

Fill Cup
Remove module and support assembly. Remove
ejector blades and shut-off arm. Pull fill cup from
mold.
Remove appropriate
fill cup slot .
!
CAUTION
To avoid damange to main assembly, do not rotate
blades or drive gear.
Forcefully pull cup up
and out of slot .
There are several switches which will jam if manually
turned counterclockwise and gears will be destroyed if
turned clockwise. To advance the ice maker into the
cycle, use a jumper to bridge H to R and unless the
motor is defective, it will run. (The shut-off arm must
be in the on position.)
NOTE: There are several slotted shafts on the motor
assembly board. Do not under any circumstances insert a screwdriver and attempt to turn these shafts.
The slots are to permit assembly only.
Ejector Blades or Stripper
Remove module and support assembly. When reinstalling ejector blades, realign "D" coupling with module cam.
NOTE: There are not repairable or replaceable components in the module. Unless you are replacing the
module, there should be no need to remove it when
diagnosing or repairing the ice maker.
Accessing Control box
To remove motor and contact assembly from control box,
take out three screws (arrows) and pull free after disconnecting shut-off arm.

close. Where required, install the ASAP grandular activated carbon, odor, tastes, and sediment filter, Part
Number R0183114.
Water Fill Adjustment
Turning the water level adjustment screw will move
the contact in its relationship with the contact ring segment. This causes the contact to vary time the water
valve is energized, since the contact ring is tapered at
the end of the fill time.
Mineral contact can also lime up the mold, causing
wicking of water over the mold and poor cube release.
Silicone is applied at the upper edges, around fill cup
and stripper.
Temperature Problems
Temperatures in freezer section which average above
the normal -18°±1°C (0° ±2°F) will slow production of
ice. Complaints of inadequate ice cube production
may be corrected by simply setting the freezer to a
colder temperature. The thermostat cycling temperature in the 1-revolution ice maker is -8° ±1°C (17°
±3°F). Obviously, the ice will be well frozen when
these temperatures are achieved but cycling time will
be slowed if freezer temperature is not cold enough to
achieve these mode temperatures easily.
Turning screw clockwise decreases fill; counterclockwise increase fill amount.
1/2 turn equals 20 cc or 1.2 seconds
Full turn equals 40 cc or 2.4 seconds
!
CAUTION
NOTE: Only the thermostat, mold, with heater and
wiring harness, are replaceable. Any other failure (including the motor) requires replacement of the module
assembly. The service replaceable mold assembly
comes with a new mold heater installed.
Maximum adjustment is one full turn either direction.
Additional rotation could damage module.
If water valve adjustment screw falls out, just put it
back in and align the hole in the hole as shown.
External plastic parts are also replaceable.
A failed mold heater requires complete replacement of
the mold and mold heater assembly.
Servicing Thermostat
The thermostat can be removed and replaced having
been diagnosed as inoperative. Remove control box
from mold by taking out two phillips screws.
Water
Adjustment
Area
When small hole is centered in larger hole, the water fill
adjustment is for 7.5 second fill time (normal).
Water Problems
Water quality can cause ice makers to fail, or produce
unacceptable cubes. If mineral content or sand is a
problem, the screen in the fill valve can restrict, or a
particle of sand can keep the valve from seating properly. Results will be small crescents (or no ice) or
flooding of the ice container if the water valve does not
RS5290000 Rev. 0

April 1998
Ice Maker
Pull (front of Black Housing) free of the mold, and see
the thermostat on mold side.
Dual Water Valve
The dual water valve has two solenoids. When the tan
encapsulated solenoid is energized the amount of water allowed to enter ice maker mold is directly proportional to the length of time the water valve switch is
held closed by the timing cam.
Inside the valve is a flow washer which acts as a water
pressure regulator. Proper ice maker fill is 140 cc ±10
cc at 7.5 seconds of water fill at an inlet pressure
ranging from 1.4 to 8.2 bar (20 to 120 PSI).
When the light blue encapsulated solenoid is energized water flows through the coiled water tank to the
cavity spickett.
Using needle nose pliers, grasp one of the thermostat
clips and pull out. Press in new thermostat, making
sure pins are properly indexed. Using this procedure,
it is not necessary to remove the electrical assembly.
If replacing the module, transfer the clips to the new
mold support. (Use new thermal bonding material.)
Servicing Wire Harness
To remove wiring harness, depress retaining tab and
pull plug free.
The water flow rate is to be 1.7 to 3.5 liter per minute
with 1.4 to 8.2 bar (20 to 120 PSI)pressure drop
across valve.
The valve also incorporates a 80 mesh screen water
strainer.
Wiring Harness
A one-time thermal fuse micro device 78°C (170° F) is
incorporated into the ice maker wiring harness to protect the plastic liner from melting if the ice maker
should overheat. The thermal fuse is spliced into the
red wire of the ice maker harness. The thermal fuse
is a 78° C (170°F) nonresettable fuse. A "No Ice"
complaint could be caused by excessive heat. Replacing only the wiring harness will only temporarily
solve the problem. The ice maker thermostats should
also be replaced
! CAUTION
To avoid property damage, always test for water
leaks after repair or replacement of the water valve.
Do not over tighten connection to household water
supply.
