The temperature issue will not change as you do not have a frost free fridge. With the type you currently have the older it gets the less it works. Think frost free!

There are 2 or 3 things that would cause this. first make sure the condenser coils are not plugged with dust (vacumn or blow them out) next check to make sure the fan that cools these coils is running, (this is the most likely problem). if both of these check out ok then you would need to check to make sure your interior lights ar going off when the doors are closed as these will add extra heat and cause the center rails to run hot. last and most uncommon would be a freon system problem.  

fyi there is a hot gas freon line that runs in between the doors to prevent exterior sweating. when poor or no air flow problems for the condenser coil exist it causes this area to become hotter. 
One more thing. if you do determine that the condenser fan motor is bad you can put a normal house fan blowing on to the coil to help cool this area down until you can get the unit repaired. 
If you need any further assistance leave me a comment here and I'll gladly get back to you. Thanks Peyton

SOURCE: refrigerator not cooling

You model if the ARB1950C has a defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment and behind the temperature control panel. Need to see if you can manualy turn the timer clockwise until the compressor stops. During that time of 25 minutes the freezer should be in defrost. I believe your timer needs replaced based on how you explained what is happening. The part number for your timer is 67001036 and can be found at the links below. If it stays longer that 25 minutes then it's sticking in the defrost section of the defrost timer and will need to be replaced. If your refrigerator does not restart after about 25 minutes then slowly turn the timer through the opening in the plastic cover. There may be a plug covering the hole to make the hole not so visible. If you should have problems fell free to let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: We have a 25.4 cubic

the clicking is from the lamp relay which makes the lights flicker and its located on the units rear area in the back,without a model number i cant tell what this boards model number is but you need to replace this whole board as they are non repairable(this is usually caused by a power surge or outage,which can destroy these boards,also even if a lamp in the unit burns out this can destroy this board too)

The temp says 14 and 8 but should be -21 and 3? Can anyone help


Controlling the Freezer temperature
The freezer temperature can be set between -14°C (8°F) and -25?C (-14°F) to suit your particular needs. Press the freezer button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the temperature display. Keep in mind that foods like ice cream may melt at -16?C (4°F). The temperature display will move sequentially from -14°C (8°F) and -25?C (-14°F). When the display reaches -14?C (8°F), it will begin again at -25?C (-14°F). Five seconds after the new temperature is set the display will again show the actual current
freezer temperature. However, this number will change as the Freezer adjusts to the new temperature. The top and bottom guards in the freezer of this model are the two star sections, so the
temperature in two star sections are slightly higher than other freezer compartment.

Controlling the Fridge temperature
The refrigerator temperature can be set between 7?C (45°F) and 1?C (34°F) to suit your particular needs. Press the fridge button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the
temperature display. The temperature control process for the Fridge works just like the Freezer process. Press the fridge button to set your desired temperature. After a few seconds, the Fridge will
begin tracking towards the newly set temperature. This will be reflected in the digital display. The temperature of the freezer or the refrigerator may rise from opening the doors too frequently, or if a large amount of warm or hot food is placed in either side. This may cause the digital display to blink. Once the freezer and refrigerator return to their normal set temperatures the blinking will stop.
If the blinking continues, you may need to "reset" the refrigerator. Try unplugging the appliance, wait about 10 minutes and then plug back in.

The refrigerator does not work at all or it does not chill sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct
temperature? Try setting it to a lower temperature.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located too near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping air from circulating?

usually meduim setting is good'

FREEZER /FRIDGE NOT COOLING: Optimum refrigerator temperature at or below40° F(4° C). The freezer temperature should be0° F(-18° C). Check temperatures periodically. Appliance thermometers are the best way of knowing these

Temperature control in fridge is turned all the way down but still too cold-25*, freezer=10*. What can i do? Amana SZD27ME side by side


Turning down the dial is not recommended as it does not turn the temperature down. Please return it the factory setting. If your temperature is too cold in the fridge, it may be the timer or thermostat. If it its in the freezer, it's the thermostat. If it both, you have a bigger problem, such as the compressor may be malfunctioning.

More then likely it has a low charge, or the metering device is plugged. Need a appliance repair tech, or refrigeration tech to look at it.

Kenmore refrigerator keeps running. We have tried differant temperature settings. Frig will not turn off. At the coldest setting the freezer does not completly freeze the food. Will not make ice cubes.


Sounds like a sealed system issue.

If the appliance is more than 3 years old OR it was repaired in the last 6 months, it may be a leak on the sealed system, so there is not enough refrigerant and it can't reach the adequate temperature.

You can try this:

1. Clean the back coils. remove all dust. (perhaps the coils are at the bottom).

2. Use a fan and blow some air at the coils. Check if temperature lowers. If so, perhaps the evaporator fan is broken.

3. The sides of the appliance are hot? Any recent service? Perhaps the technician forgot to connect a wire.

4. Unplug the appliance and wait about 10 minutes, then plug it back to the voltage. Check if the problem continues.

5. Where is the location of the appliance? Next to the range? In the garage? If the fridge is located on a hot place, it will not cool down properly.

If everything of above looks ok, then you may need to contact a technician. Check the warranty information in the user manual. Some appliances have a good warranty coverage.

If appliance is more than 5 years old, it may not be a good idea to repair if sealed system or compressor is broken. It will be quite expensive and repairs will not last long.

Good luck.

Amana refrigerator, bottom freezer. Back keeps icing up. I have unplugged and thawed it twice, within 2 weeks it is frozen again and freezer warm


This is a defrost problem most likely caused by a defective defrost thermostat. It is located in the freezer compartment behind back wall on top right hand side of coils and usually has a brown and an orange wire connecting to it. It should have continuity when checking with a volt/ohm meter when it is frozen and read open when it is warm.
I have seen many of the newer electronic temperature model bottom mounts with defective control boards as well that cause the fridge to skip the defrost cycle.
Good luck!

We pluged it in and it worked and now it dont


If you changed the settings or unplugged it or the power to the house went out, then you have to wait a few minutes before the compressor can start up again. There is a sticker on the fridge that warns about that.

If it still hasn't started up when you read this, then:
1. Set the temperatures where you want them for the freezer & refrig.
2. UNPLUG power cord for 10 minutes (don't open either fridge or freezer).
3. Wait a full 10 minutes! Nothing will melt... check breaker to outlet, just in case...
4. Plug in power cord... It will start now..

Hope this helps!

After cleaning coils and in back of fridge, it appears that the defrost keeps cycling every 5 minutes


hi
Step 1:
 If the compressor runs all the time, turn the control knob to the OFF position. If the compressor still runs, unplug the unit, then pull off the control knob and remove the screws holding the thermostat in place. Pull out the thermostat and remove either the red or the blue wire from its terminal. Plug in the unit. If the compressor doesn't run, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new thermostat.

Step 2: 
If the compressor runs after the wire is removed from its terminal, there is probably a short circuit somewhere in the unit's wiring. In this case, don't try to fix the problem yourself; call a professional service person.

Step 3: 
If the refrigerator or freezer runs but the box doesn't cool, unplug the unit and remove the thermostat with a screwdriver. Disconnect both wires from the thermostat. Tape the ends of the wires together with electrical tape, and plug in the appliance. If the refrigerator starts and runs normally, the thermostat is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new thermostat the same way the old one was connected.

Step 4: 
If the freezer compartment is normal but the refrigerator box doesn't cool, set the dials that control both compartments to mid-range. Remove these knobs (they're usually friction-fit). Then unscrew the temperature control housing; you'll see an air duct near the control. Replace the knob on the freezer thermostat and turn the control to the OFF position. Open the refrigerator door and look closely at the air duct. If this duct doesn't open wider in about ten minutes, the control is faulty. Replace the control with a new one of the same type. Connect the new control the same way the old one was connected.
