Question about Amana ABB2224DEW / ABB2224DEQ / ABB2224DEB Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
The freezer compartment keeps icing up near an area where the gasket appears to not be making good contact. Is it the gasket or possibly some other faulty component. Any possible fixes without needing to change gasket? What if i try to seal the gap with vaseline or short piece of weatherstrip?
1. Loosen the gasket screws and carefully adjust it.
2. Re-tighten the screws.
3. Lubricate the vertical gasket on the hinge side of the unit with vasoline.
4. Also lube the first 3 inches of gasket horizontally coming away from the hinge side of the door.
5. I noticed on my own Amana BX22RW the plastic air grill at the bottom of the unit interferes with the freezer gasket if this grill is installed upside down. The difference is only about 1/8th" and there doesn't seem to be an "up" mark on the grill. Install yours both ways and mark it with a permanent mark if you find one way is better. (You'll need to get down on the floor and "eyeball along the bottom of the door gasket with the door closed in order to determine if there is interference.)

Ya hit it right on the head. Sounds like a classic "pulling in moisture" problem. See if you can seal that air leak any way you can. That moisture can freeze up air channels and block the refer compartment from getting cool air from the freezer compartment eventually.
