Freezer fan only run sometimes


If you nudged the fan and it started working it could be defective and needs to be replaced or it could be freezing up because of freezing condensation. Be sure that all the coils under and behind the fridge, if there are any,
are free from dirt and dust. If this is a refridg/freezer be sure the air vent between them, on the inside, is not blocked by anything. The airflow is necessary for proper temp control.

Water is leaking into the fridge from the freezer.It is a top freezer with ice maker


It's likely due to a problem in the defrost drain or a leak in the ice maker. You may be able to solve such problems quite quickly, possibly in just a few steps. Have the owner's manual available to help you find

Some models have a selector switch to allow for a manual defrost cycle. If your freezer has this setting (check your owner's manual), ensure that the switch wasn't set to defrost accidentally. If the freezer was in a defrost cycle, check it in about an hour to ensure it is working.

When the defrost system kicks in, frost buildup on the evaporator coils melts and water is collected in a trough beneath it-more than usual. It is funneled through a defrost drain tube or channel down the back of your refrigerator and collected in a drain pan, where it is then left to evaporate.

Often, the defrost cycle turns off before the water can finish draining, and the refrigerator continues to cool. Ice buildup then forms along the system, and eventually water collects and puddles in the bottom of the refrigerator as melted ice continues to drip from the evaporator coils.

If there is ice buildup, allow the unit to thaw:
1. Remove food from the entire unit, storing it in coolers packed with ice, and remove the freezer shelves. Unplug the unit.
2. Using a screwdriver, remove the panel inside the freezer at the back to access the evaporator coils and trough.
3. Leave open the doors and allow the ice in the trough and along the defrost drain system to thaw by itself. This should take several hours. Note: Keep plenty of towels around and be prepared for the drain pan to fill quickly.
4. When thawing is complete, replace the panel and restore power to the unit. When it is cooling again, replace the food.
For more troubleshooting steps and simple solutions, read Freezer leaking water. I hope this helps!

Interior frost buildup - about half way down from the top of the refrigerator 10 inces by 20 inches about a quarter inch deep

The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can’t flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won’t turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it’s bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it’s in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others.

The ice maker on amana bottom freezer is not making ice?


Hi
Many top-freezer ice makers have very similar ice makers that are pretty easy to diagnose. Side by side refrigerators have a variety of ice makers so I’ll start with the more common top freezer units. If yours makes crescent shaped ice cubes this will probably be relevant to your unit.
These ice makers have a metal wire bail or wand that senses if the ice level is too high. This sensor stops the ice maker from making ice that would overflow the catch bin. Check to make sure this sensor isn’t obstructed or locked at the far end of its travel. In normal operation the sensor wand should be resting against the ice maker. As it begins a cycle the wand sweeps across the catch bin and will be stopped if ice has risen too high. The same wand can be locked in a position at the far end of its travel to disable the ice maker. This is the most common cause of no ice. This may be what you meant by "made sure the tray was set right and arm was done"
If you have a different type of ice maker just spend a few minutes watching it operate or examine the non-operating unit. If you have a neighbor with a similar unit take a look at theirs. Many have a front cover that easily pops off giving access to the internal works. Listen as you watch to hear solenoid valves open, water flow, etc.
Make sure you look for any other interlock switches that would stop ice making if the tray were removed, the door was opened, etc.
You’ve already checked the water line, I’ll assume you disconnected it and tested for water flow or it was a translucent line and that you saw water in it. While you could do further tests on the water inlet valve, it’s probably easier just to verify that water is making it into the ice mold. If no water or ice is in the mold then you need to check the inlet valve or check the timer’s water switch. If there’s water or ice in the mold then your water supply is working and we need to look elsewhere. If there’s ice in the mold the most likely cause is the heater or ejector. If there's water it could be several things from the freezer temperature to the heater switch.
It's easier to figure out the problem if you have a simplified idea of how the ice making process works. An electromechanical timer controls the sequence of events for the entire process and acitivates valves and switches at the proper stage of the process. An ice mold receives water through an inlet valve. The mold is usually cooled just by the freezer air and relies on it's mass to retain the cold. Once the water has been in the mold for the correct time the cubes are given a brief shot of heat from a heating element in the mold. This loosens things up so a mechanical ejector can push the cubes from the mold. More water is added and the process continues.

Refridgerator


Unless your fridge has a water supply connected to i.e for an ice maker,t about the only place the water could be coming from the condensate waste pipe.

Inside most fridges near the evaporator (the cold part) is a drain hole so that any condensate can drain out. This flows thru a tube to the back of the fridge. Normally this tube will feed into a tray and will evaporate away naturally.

You could have a look at the back of the fridge to see if this is happening.

Pease remember to rate this solution.
