Front Door Amana Computer Door Pad Changes on its Own? Amana ARS2667BW
Hi - I have an Amana ars2667bw refrigerator. The front door has a touchpad where you can select ice, crushed ice and water. A few days ago - I was awoken in the night by the computer repeatedly saying 'cubed ice' - it would not stop, so I put it on silence. I now have the fron door in 'lock' status because if we use it, all 3 front buttons flash and change intermittantly and I have to unplug the fridge to be able to get to the 'menu' button to lock it from doing this. Also - if you push - say the water button, it will deliver water - but will switch by itelf all around the keypad and will dsipense whatever it changes to. Is there a short in the compter system? Is this repairable? I do want to mention that we had a crazy power/on/out surges a week ago during the IKE storm - so did this cause the problem?

It could be the power outage. electronics are very sensitive, it could be damage by just static electricity alone. i suggest that you can plug it to an automatic voltage regulator with a time delay so that it could save your unit after a power interruption.
regarding your problem now, it could just be a touch pad problem. maybe that is the only part fried by the surges. i assume the refrigerator cooling performance was not affected. only the touchpad panel is affected.

Adjust the front legs of your refrigerator slightly to raise the
refrigerator. and and store items on the freezer door shelves to add
weight. This is a problem of pneumatics and a testament to how tight
newer refrigerators are. When you close the large refrigerator door it
compresses the air in the refrigerator compartment. Both compartments
are connected by air passages and thus the pressure change is
transferred to the freezer causing the freezer door to pop open.
the front of the refrigerator a tiny bit will help both doors close
from the 90 degree point, which is desirable. Adding weight to the
shelf will just help the process.
An additional aid in
self-closure will be to use vegetable oil on a paper towel to wipe down
the hinge side face of both door seals. All these maneuvers should aid
in causing the door to stay closed and re-close if it should open
slightly. Good Luck
Any adjustment is at the hinge, you probably find that you have fitted it too close and it is pinching the gasket in the corner. Tilting the fridge back can help, but the doors must be able to swing closed freely first. This can be done by adjusting the footing screws below the front of the fridge.
ther should be a small allen screw holding them on no?? if not grabbig the handle and lifting straightup will undo front the clips and ssnap them back on when in. I thihk id rather remove the dorr assy though, (3) 5/16 screws under the top hinge covers, adn by pullinf outh the freezer door youll see 2 phillips head screws bout 5 inches in on either side from the rfornt panel of door located in the sliding track itself, after reemoving the screw the entire door will lift off and out, you gain another 3-5 inches that way and not worry about scratchin the appiance going through doorway
