Question about Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water

1 Answer

Fridge and freezer not cooling properly!

I have Amana Model SCD23VW 25.5 cu ft side by side. Fridge and freezer stops cooling but the fan and compressor still runs so I have to shut the freezer and fridge controls off and wait for a while to turn them back on for it to start cooling again, and the longer you leave the controls off before turning them back on the longer it cools when you do turn it back on again, and the water in the door does not work either. The ice dispenser does not work either unless you leave it turned off then when you turn it back on it only makes 1 batch of ice before stoping to.

Sounds like a problem with defrost system , It could be one of there components , timer, heater, or defrost thermostat. try advancing the timer, down at the lower area behind the grill. with a screw driver by putting it into the dial advance and turn it till it clicks and the unit shuts off. now you should see red glow at bottom of back panel in freezer or here sizzling . if this does not happen then it will be the heater or the thermostat.

SOURCE: cubic feet?

Most refrigerator models with two digits, the rest letters, the digits stand for the cubic foot capacity of the refrigerator. In you case, 23 cubic foot model.

SOURCE: freezer problem

Have you checked the Heater element for the defrost to see if it's good? It sounds like the coils inside your freezer are freezing over into a solid block of ice which in turn will cause it to stop cooling.....efficiently. When you leave the unit unplugged, it gives the unit a chance to thaw and it work properly until the coils freeze over again. If heater is not the problem then Defrost Thermostat probably is. Both located in back of Freezer.

My fridge(& freezer) started giving off a bad burnt odor then stopped cooling (amana 25 cubic/mod #afd2535fes). any suggestions as to what it might be?


You said it stopped cooling, does the compressor kick on, or is it dead? Is the condenser fan operating (the one that blows across the condenser grill by the compressor)?

Is your condenser grill clean? What indications are you getting specifically?

Is the compressor running. also check to see if the fan next to compressor is running. They should both run at same time..is the compressor fan running and compressor not? Could be the compressor start relay. Next, is there frost buildup on inside back wall of freezer? If so u may have a defrost control out or defrost heater or defrost terminating thermostat out. Greg

My fridge is not cold though the compressor is running.


If any fans stop cooling stops. The fan inside the freezer will need to be examined for why it stopped or if the one below is stopped it to will need to be checked. I think your defrost timer is on the front of your refrigerator on floor behind the kick plate. If you can turn the timer clockwise until refrigerator starts or stops that may tell us the reason for these failures. Place your model in the model search feature below and choose one of many the same models. Look inside back of freezer wall after you unplug refrigerator and tell me if fan is stopped and if coils have ice or snow covering them.Then we will go from there.Click link below.

Fridghefreezer not working


Make sur compressor is running.

Unplug for 20-25 min., plug it back in and listen for compressor to start. You will need to be behind the Ref so you can tell if you hear the compressor or the condenser fan running.

Ice/frost build up in freezer.
This is a failure of the defrost system. Evaporator fan, heater, timer, one or more could be bad.
