Question about Amana Refrigerators

1 Answer

Our Amana side-by-side model SXD524VW (Belgium supplied and installed)stopped working. Lights still work. Some light noise (compressor?) can be heard. But it is warming up. Icleaned all out. It was really dirty after 8years operation :-( Is there a manual for this unit? There is a small black box at the front in the middle with a knob on it that will only permit turning clock-wise. What is it for?

    Yes, by turning the little knob on the black box (siting front/botton/center behind the grill) did turn on something; I guess the de-froster as you said) on. The fridge and freezer section are getting colder and there is a hum; but the usual (quite substantial) operating noise can not be heard.

    After the big clean-up I powered up and the cold water dispenser did work again. And the water is getting colder.

    Should I just be patient?

My Amana fridge (model ARSE67RBB) compressor has stopped working. It locks up when it gets too hot, and then makes a high pitched buzzing sound. I purchased the fridge used, so I don't think Amana is...


The buzzing noise is the compressor stalled and trying to start. Is the condensor fan working? (the fan at the back by the compressor) as if it's not it could cause this issue. If the rest of the unit is in good condition then yes I'd replace the compressor as these are normally good models and aren't cheap to buy new. This problem shouldn't happen again if you have a good new compressor installed by an expert. cheers

I have an Amana bottom freezer frigerator. The


Possibly a bad relay/overload or shorted run capacitor.If it was built between 2002 and 2005 it may be a bad compressor in which case you would want to check the warranty for possible coverage.
 the relay/overload and run capacitor plug right into the compressor on the left hand side.
 IF it isn't under warranty and the Oem part won't get it going pick up a 3in1 hard start for it they are easy to install and will get it working for you.

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 ???

Amana sxd524v fridge-freezer tripped out the power


Hi, you can check if there is a fanmotor on the condenser section and make sure that it is working. Second, you can try replacing the starter relay which you will find in the connection area of the compressor. If this does not work, I am afraid you would have to have the compressor replaced.
