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

1 Answer

Took doors of amana fridge

I just bought a used Amana fridge (SXD26VW... P1315202WW) and to move it, the doors had to be removed. I have two problems, since I didn't watch how the guys unhooked it and I need to fix this before my husband gets home from work, for a variety of reasons.
1/To connect wires on top of freezer door hinge.
There Is a plug for four wires, another single plug. I can figure out where those go, but have not idea about the other two wires. One pink with no hardware off the end and another green/blue that has a bolt thing. I don't know where they attach. Is there some sort of diagram. I googled, but couldn't find anything.
2/This is driving me crazy...When the doors came off there was a long clear hose that goes up through the door of the freezer and hooks up to the water fountain. It came out of the door. I can't get it back up through the little hole through the door and do not know how to reattach it. (it actually looks like it was chewed off). I tried taking the moulding off the dispenser and was able to, but don't know how to get the hose back up there. How much of a Pain in the Behind is it to fix this? If I don't fix it and we still hook up the water for the ice maker will there be leakage....Can you help me? Before my husband gets home from work in a couple of hours? Comment by cooperco, posted on Nov 22, 2008 Thanks, but this didn't answer my questions. I actually spent 1/2 hour on that website before I posted and could not find out any of the information per the diagrams. There is nothing on there that has the wiring schematic for the freezer door hinge, nor is there anything about the hose that goes throught the door for water.
I would like actual answers to my questions and not a diagram. Thanks anyway. Comment by cooperco, posted on Nov 22, 2008 Please read my questions carefully before you respond.

I need help with the wiring at the hinge on the freezer door. Read first post for complete questions.
I also have a problem with the water hose, which came unhooked at the dispenser and I cannot get back into the door and do not know how to go about reattaching it. Comment by cooperco, posted on Nov 22, 2008OKay, it looks like the movers broke the hose. I don't have to have cold water, but I need a way to make sure that water isn't flowing into that hose, so I don't have water all over the floor.

    if the gas content in the cylinder of the fridge has became less then you will get more water in the ice maker .....

    the gas content might have got reduced due to some of the reasons like if the fridge is kept open for long period of time when it is in on etc ....

    it is some what difficult to explain the wiring theoritically so it is better you call a technician and get it fitted ...

    he will just take some charges ... it is really not much any way

My Amana french door/bottom freezer is leaking water. Did the procedure with hot water the drain in back of the freezer, although it seemed clear of ice. That didn't help. The leaking stops when I...


Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.

Do the door hinges ever wear out


I did my own search for the same problem and saw Dougs question and lack of a solution. I have the same sagging door problem and was looking for a fix.
First, when I removed the weight of the items from inside the door, the door closes properly. This means that the door is not very sturdy and cannot hold the weight of items placed on door shelving. There are NO adjustment mechanisms on the door hinges either. Bad on Amana. The GOOD NEWS is that I fixed the problem.
Take out all items from the door shelves. I removed the top hinge with the door closed to keep it from falling. I took the door off and placed it on the floor. The lower hinge has a plastic pivot over a steel pin - remove that for a moment. Place steel washers over the steel pin - about .080" or so thickness. Replace the plastic pivot. Replace the door. Add the normal weight of items back on the door shelves. The door closes perfectly. At least until the door sags again and I'll need to add another shim.

My brother moved and the movers removed the side by side doors


The dispenser assembly comes apart from the front. It should give you access to the waterline as it comes up from the bottom.

SXD26VW WILL RUN AND FREEZER WILL GO TO TEN DEGREES AND REF GOES TO 35. WITHOUT OPENINING DOORS BUT TO CHECK TEMP IS 40 DEG AND REF 55 IN A MATTER OF A HOUR


Listen for fan noise under the cabinet; the fan responsible for circulating air past the coils may have failed. You should also be able to detect a flow of warm air coming from the vent near the floor.
If you have air flow there, the system may need recharged with coolant. If it has ever been moved, the system may have gotten a leak during transport. This will require a service tech.

Compressor working but Fridge and Freezer not cooling - Amana


It sounds like the same problem my brother is having with his. I took it apart and found that the fan that moves all the air for cooling is not working. This fan is behind the bottom panel in the freezer side, and sorry you do have to take everything out to get to it.
