Amana bottom frezzer refrigerator

Hi, I have a 18 month old Amana bottom freezer 19 ci refrigerator. I came home today with the freezer dripping on the floor. The ref, has been making an odd clicking noise the last couple days when cycling the compressor on. I found the tech sheet attached under the ref, and performed the onboard diags. all seem to be working ok. all fans ok, coils are clean. I put i thermometer in the fridge and set it to the coldest setting. the fridge and freezer are cooling to 43f. I did notice when the fridge attempts turn kick on the compressor there is a loud click that lasts a few seconds and kicks out. i dont beleive the compressor is running correctly, the click seems to be coming from the overload switch on the compressor. Any ideas?? Your help would be great. Thanks T. Gazzo

Re: Amana bottom frezzer refrigerator

Gazzo, You are on the right track. I've been finding a lot of compressor failures on these Amana's. It's possible that the overload and relay for the compressor failed, but Im more inclined, from what I've seen, that the compressor is the problem. The compressor is covered under warranty, parts and labor for 5 years. I would call for warranty back.

I have a ffa90 futre fridge & bottom frezzer. the fridge is frezzing the food in the door & in the fridge. have tryed water in botles & they get ice on it .in the door the food frezzers so

Find where the supply air is coming into the fridge part. It comes from the freezer and could easily be supplying -18 air direct to the door. This would give you a 2 in the fridge but anything in the direct air path could freeze.

Amana refrigerator A4TXNWFWWO1 >top freezer, bottom fridge it's only 10 months old refrigerator won't get colder than 55 degrees freezer is working

There is something plugging the drain line in the freezer which carries water from the defrost cycle to your evap drain tray in the bottom of your fridge. The water has built up and froze plugging the flow of air from freezer to fridge.... find the line and unplug it and let fridge sit and thaw overnight and then some more.

I have an amana 18 top freezer that is about 15 years old. I am getting water on the floor of the refrigator, i have unplugged it for 24 hours, and it still does it. No water is in the pan. What do i do as...

No water in the drip pan, water in the refrigerator - this is a classic case of defrost drain issues. If your unit has a little drip cup at the back of the refrigerator (inside) you will notice a hole above it, this is the drain coming from the freezer - When defrost cycle kicks in the heating element melts the frost on the evap coils above it and water drips through the hole and inside your cup in your refrigerator - then it should drain through a tube that extends to the back of your refrgierator through a hole, from there water drips down the drain tube down the pan at the bottom above the compressor so it can later be evaporated with the heat.

What you have is a plugged drain tube - water drips in your cup and overflows down the back of your refrigerator - if you are able to remove this cup and tube, pass a long wire down the drain line to dislodge any debris or whatever is blocking the line - clean your cup and also check for any debris. Also at the back of your freezer panel look for any debris or obstruction to the drain, causing water to back up and leak elsewhere. Once all this is checked, and you put back the cup, water should flow normally and drain fast enough through the drain tube.

good luck

Amana ABB1922 refrigerator - refrigerator not cooling

Check fan for operation and vent duct for ice or the damper sticking between the two compartments. It does not take much when the freezer is on bottom, colder air (because heavier) remains there without proper circulation. I will be trying to find the maintenance /service manual to help resolve this. JT

Refrigerator warm but freezer is fineChanged the evaporator fan (12013211q)for BR18Ve Amana...Is it possible that the part last only a couple of years...

If your bottom freezer has ice build up, (you will see it frosted up), you do not have proper air flow. Check to see if your defrost elements are working. They are in the freezer compartment. in the evaporator. There is a defrost timer on the bottom of your fridge. You can turn the knob until the refergerator turns off, then listen in the frezzer compartment to se if the elements are working. (You will hear them sizzle)

Sounds like it has either a bad compressor relay or if the brand name of the compressor is Tecumseh, it will need to be retrofit to a more reliable longer lasting Embraco compressor.
