I have an Amana #arb2117aw refer w/ bottom freezer. My icemaker stopped working. after buying a new maker and harness it still didn't work. After hours of research and testing parts, I found out the power for the ice maker goes through the freezer light switch. If the door is open, there's no power to the ice maker to dump the ice. ( makes sense, don't want ice to dump on the bottom of the freezer ). My freezer door was sagging slightly so no power was ever going to the ice maker. I fixed the door and it works fine now.
Useful tip from Bob, so we expanded on his tip and now offer this page. Most/many of the Maytag and Amana bottom freezer refrigerators run the power for the icemaker through the freezer light switch. With the freezer door open, the icemaker will not work.
