Ice Maker Overfilling
 
3 Attachment(s)
I have an Amana refrigerator with top freezer and ice maker (IC6).
The water fill cycle is to long and allows water to go into the harvest bin.
I cannot locate the adjustment screw for cube size/water fill time.

I am not certain this model has a adjustment screw? I have the front cover off, but see nothing marked +/-.

Any suggestions appreciated.............John V.

That little plastic pin on the side is the adjustment screw. However, typically it does not have a lot of range. When I had that happen before, the problem was with the water valve -- it was getting hung open, and it took 10-15 seconds to close after the solenoid de-energized. You might want to observe a cycle, listen for the hum from the solenoid, and note whether the water stops when the hum does, or keeps running.

the white screw on the side is the adjustment, turn clockwise to decrease. Max range is 1 full turn before damaging unit.

That screw is for adjusting the size of the cube and thats all. If its over flowing there is another reason for it. Most likley water valve make sure its repalced with the one for that model. Model determines how many cc's of water for your particular i/m.
