How do I turn off the ice maker on an Amana refrigerator Model SZD20KPE, serial #8912090669? Manufactured in Dec 1989.
the way you shut the icemaker off is by raising the arm on side the icemaker ,, it looks like a wire ,, just raise it up and it should stay up and wont run till you let it back down ,,, are you having problem with the icemaker or just want it off for a while / larry

I am not having a problem with the icemaker. I just wanted it off for the winter.


I had already raised the arm to shut off the ice maker about a half hour ago.


I thought it would also stop the motor I hear running in the freezer, but it didn't. I don't know if it stopped making ice or not. have to wait and see if the bin fills up with ice again.
