Question about Amana ARB9059CS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
1997 Amana bottom freezer refrig model BCE20TW icemaker is making ice, but when the tray fills, water drips into ice bucket melting all of the cubes together. Icemaker replaced 2001. Defrost terminator replaced 2004. I love this refrig, but it keeps having problems. I believe in fixing things not just buying new. Sears told me that refrigerators are not made to last past 10 years, but this one needed work after the first 4 years. Do I need to replace the icemaker again? I used to be able to access the parts schematic with part numbers on amana.com, but I guess they don't support this model anymore. Any advice would be much appreciated.
Bottom freezer works fine, but upper refrigerator has no cold air
You said, Bottom freezer works fine, but upper refrigerator has no cold air
Is your freezer so full that it is packed to the top especially in the rear?
Refrigerators and freezers share the air from the compressor and travel through vents in the rear of the freezer and fridge.
Sometimes it can effect the cooling in the fridge if the freezer articles block the vents!
The water overfilling in the ice maker is an ice maker problem only.
When we install an ice maker there is a short white plastic tube that we push through the rear
hole of the fridge which supply's the water to the maker, the outside water line attaches to this.
That tube we push through the fridge must go in till it stops. And empties in to a little sistran at the rear of the ice maker. Make sure it did not sip out or backwards a little when you may have moved
rolled the fridge out to clean under it!
Also you need periodically to remove the front grill down in front of the fridge and gently run a refrigerator brush under the coils to clean out the dust that may block air flow over the coils.(the coils are metal black tubes that run back and forth along the bottom of your fridge.
The vacuum will not reach in to that tight space. That's why they make a special brush for this chore.
Let me know how you do?
