I am not home right now, but can provide this information later today or tomorrow. The refrigerator does have a filter that needs to be replaced. I tried to replace this at one point but did not get the right filter and Home Depot did not have the right one for Amana.

The refrigerator was sitting not being used but I don't know for how long. The home had been winterized and I think the refrigerator was on but the water was shut off from the refrigerator.
