Question about Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water
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.
tnx 4 using fixya,
