Son has Amana Side-by-side Model SXD 26VW with ice-maker.
I have not seen this, but he describes small srpay like leak from a
clear plastic tube near the top on the back. (Inlet for icemaker is
at the bottom rear). Turning off the icemaking feature has apparently
stopped the leak.
Amana home page says they have no .pdf manual for it. Found some
parts diagrams, but nothing I could recognize.
Clue (maybe): He had new floor put in kitchen Friday, which
necessitated disconnecting, moving unit.
Is it possible that without pressure something froze?
I don't want to go over there and get involved if I can avoid it. I'm
too old and too sore. Anyhoo, is there anyway someone can tell what
the problem may be. ("I had that happen to me" or "they all do that;
you can fix it by...") If, it's a likely parts problem, then I'm
going to have hime call a repairman---which is probably the best
approach in any case.
It's not because he moved the refrigerator that he has this leak.
It's because he has a new floor. Water-related parts live for the day
that someone gets a new floor, and they will wait years for it. Then
they start to leak. Every part papa raises his little parts to fail
when they can cause the most harm or at least inconvenience. And
little parts want to make their papas proud.
IIUC Jeff said it might be. IIUC, you might not need a part, only
some way to thaw the tube? ? :
I can see you are getting more like a part father, but they are
probably getting more like human fathers so it all works out.
