SOURCE: My Amana refrigerator freezer is totally off.

Ouch!
You may have lost your fridge. Try This.

  1. Unplug.
  2. Take a table lamp & plug into socket where you had fridge plugged in. Turn light on. If it lights. Fridge is trouble.
  3. If no light check another socket make sure light works if it works your socket, wiring or breaker is your problem.

  1. If fridge check wire to & from fridge make sure it is unplugged feel & look for crimp or gap in wire.
  2. Check connection to fridge some have a reset button or overload fuse. Reset or replace if you find one.

  1. If socket try another socket see if fridge runs.
  2. If it runs you will have to troubleshoot house wiring.
Contact me if you need more help. Good Luck!
Please rate if this fixed or was helpful. Thank you.

SOURCE: freezer is building up frost and refrigerator is not cold enoough

Almost certainly, you have a leak within the freezer compartment.

The cooling system will use a divertor valve to concentrate coolant to the fridge or freezer compartment - whichever is necessary to maintain selected temperatures.

If a seal within either compartment is compromised and leaks then the coolant will be excessively diverted to that area in an attempt to lower it's temperature - the other section will suffer since more coolant is diverted to the weaker area; the weaker area that is being excessively cooled will also have more moist air circulating, hence moisture will contribute to a build up of ice - exacerbating the problem.

Ensure that both fridge and freezer doors are closing properly, if they appear to be secure then also check that the seals are airtight - there should be no ice accumulating around them.

You might need to re-align the doors, or less likely, replace the door seals.

Please reply if you require further clarification or help.

SOURCE: have an amana refrigerator model BC121VW bottem freezer

In the back of the refrigerator, there should be a vent. Put your hand over it and see if air is coming out. This will tell you if the fan the other poster mentioned is working. If no air is moving then either the fan is bad or the channel is plugged. If only a small amount of air is moving through, open the freezer door and check the air flow again. If the flow got much better, then the return channel is plugged. Try these steps, and if they help post back and I will tell you what to do next.

This could be the flap in the freezer compartment is stuck closed or indeed the fan has gone o/c, if the fan can be heard running when the door is closed it will more than likely be the ducting flap

Ref age 2 made a loud sound in freezer and does not always keep things frozen


OK, I'm going to look over your model and service manual. I do need you to tell me if the noise is continuous or a one time pop? Two years old is almost new so let me try to help you. Click Here=> ATB1836AR for your service manual. Your defrost heater has a glass tube surrounding it and can find a link or photo at the next two links just click on repair guy and enter part number is part number=> 63001387 The defrost thermostat is part=> 63001388 and the defrost timer is part number=> 63001353 I would like you to open freezer and examine the rear wall for a layer of frost. If yes the we most likely have a defrost problem caused by one of these three parts. If yes also unplug and lets examine the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. Some people have the parts and some don't. If you should need me you may find me here at Fixya or here=> Appliance 911. If you still need assistance, contact me here at Fixya or through my site HERE or here Sea Breeze Appliance Parts feel free to ask any time, Sea Breeze

Amana (freezer on top) not making ice; fridge warm


I would be calling the store from where it was purchased it should be under warranty. If the ice maker is not working the freezer is not getting down to proper temp. therefor the refrigerator does not cool because all cooling takes place in the freezer, there is a damper between the refrigerator and freezer that allows air through cooling the refrigeration section. Look for ice on the back wall, of the freezer section, If present then the defrost cycle is not working. The evap.coil is icing up and there is no air blowing into the refrigerator. This is the most common problem.

Ice build up


defrost the freezer,a hairblower helps,the drain tube is blocked in the freezer,you have to let it fully defrost then restart,this is a common problem for all fridges,turn back on after done make sure you feel the air blowing into the fridge,if it does it again its more than likely the defrost timer
