Our Amana ice and water dispenser has separate levers to operate.

Customer Question

Our Amana ice and water dispenser has separate levers to operate. The left lever that opens the door for the ice to drop out will not reclose automatically. Is this a repair that can be made without removing the inner panel and what is required to repair it?

Sorry Chas, there is no blue link below. I entered the https address in your message and got an adobe web site that had no relation to the manual that you refer to.

NEW https opened pages 69-95 but all instructions are for trim pieces. However !!!

Thanks to your help I found 2 small screws on the bottom of the trim that let me get to more screws that let me remove from the front without removing the dispenser box the broken part which is an air dashpot #58758-1 made by Airpot. The plastic that seals the end had deteriorated and lost its vacuum that pulled the ice dispenser arm to close the ice cover.

 

So Thanks for staying with me, I hope I can find a new one at the same place that I found the new ice maker some months ago.
