Geezer, sounds like a defrost issue. I usually find the bi-metal to be the culprit on this model. Check out the pic. You will have to remove the back panel in the freezer and defrost the evaporator. Remove the ice maker if there is one. The back cover has 4 quarter inch screws. remove those. The air vent has 2 plastic clips one each side and one on the bottom, push in and pull the grill off. The thermistor cover has a slot for a flat blade screw driver,push in and pull the cover off. The thermistor will now slide behind the back panel. Check the bi-metal for buldging. As long as the evaporator fan is working, it's probably a defrost problem.

Check the damper in the top back of the fresh food section. make sure that it is open and air is coming through it.

SOURCE: freezer is building up frost and refrigerator is not cold enoough

Almost certainly, you have a leak within the freezer compartment.

The cooling system will use a divertor valve to concentrate coolant to the fridge or freezer compartment - whichever is necessary to maintain selected temperatures.

If a seal within either compartment is compromised and leaks then the coolant will be excessively diverted to that area in an attempt to lower it's temperature - the other section will suffer since more coolant is diverted to the weaker area; the weaker area that is being excessively cooled will also have more moist air circulating, hence moisture will contribute to a build up of ice - exacerbating the problem.

Ensure that both fridge and freezer doors are closing properly, if they appear to be secure then also check that the seals are airtight - there should be no ice accumulating around them.

You might need to re-align the doors, or less likely, replace the door seals.

Please reply if you require further clarification or help.

SOURCE: Amana model SXD25QA3W. Not cooling. Compressor runs.

Low on refrigerant which is R 12. EPA has stopped the manufacture of it and it is priced out of sight.
You have a leak and will need it fixed. Compressor is about $300-400 list. You don't want to go there.
Good luck but likely 15-17 years old....... New one ???

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

I have a Baumatic fridge/freezer the fridge is not cold even on maximum setting the model number is BRB2713 please can you suggest what the problem might be


First check the simple things. Check to condenser grill and make sure the air flow is not blocked by lint, etc. And then make sure that nothing is blocking the cooling tubes between the freezer and refrigerator. I think the Baumatic has a fan pulling the cold air up from the freezer compartment into the fridge, if that isn't working, the freezer would be fine, but the fridge would be to warm.

I have an amana br22 the botom freezer gets an ice block on the radiator coils then air flow slows down to top section i have to hot air gun the freezer to get the air to start moving


The ice block is due to a defrost circuit failure. Typical problems are due to the defrost heater, defrost timer if used on this model and defrost thermostat. Since you are using a heat gun to melt the ice, check the the defrost heater with a meter to determine whether it needs to be replaced.

The bottom freezer on my Maytag BR22 is not


Look at the inside back wall of the freezer, If you see that it is built up with frost. You have a defrost problem. If not, check the coils under the bottom, make sure they are clean and not covered with dust. If so clean with vacuum and long brush. If they are clean, check the fan that blows on the compressor. Make sure it's running. If not you have a bad fan. Last be sure the fan inside the fridge is running.

Water on top of freezer door and rubber inside is getting moldy fridge temp is 43 and freezer products are fine amana BR22* bottom out freezer/refrigerator


The seal is broken around the door and this requires total replacement to prevent the moisture, the cold air from escaping, the warm moist air from entering and causing your refrigerator to run more often than needed and running up your power bill. If I had your model number it would help me to help you find a door seal and fix the problem. So if you need my help you will need to locate the make and model number and write me a message here on Fixya that lets me know you have the number and are ready for help. There are 28 different versions of the BR22 so click HERE and then enter the complete model number. Thank you and if I can help you please let me know, If all else fails contact me at appliancepartsse@yahoo.com Thanks, Sea Breeze
