    I just pulled the inside of the freezer apart and the coils are a solid block of ice I am trying to melt the ice with a jair dryer but can you tell me where the heater is located and how to check it?

  • m_abishop Nov 29, 2008

    Thanks for the informaiton I melted all the ice / frost and found the heater. Using my ohm meter I checked it and it is showing about 29.5 ohms of restistance, so I assume the heater is good. Do you have any other suggestions?

    Okay I have read enough that I believe I have a bad defrost control board. Can anyone tell me where it would be located on the unit?

Does the lowest number on the temp. setting in an Amana Fridge mean it is colder than the higher number?

If all that is ok then you need to check the heater and bi-metal / if it starts frosting up you loose air into the refrig side and the freezer will start going down too / frig side gets tem from freezer ,,,,, i bet you have a bad defrost heater / larry

    the heater is mounted to the coil and you will have to melt the ice to see it / with a volt/olm meter check to see if it is good or open / if open replace it ,,,,, if its all ice and not frost you may have water leaking from icemaker instead ,,,,, if its frost your looking at then your doing it right

I have a g.e side by side fridge frezzer. everything in the fridge part frezzers. what is wrong?

Try turning the temp up by a degree in increments, if it doesn't, then there's a problem with either the compressor, or the relay and temp.

Amana refridgerater freezer will not keep freezer frozen

this might have something to do with the defrost disk located in the frezzer behind the panel, its a small round disk attached to your coils. get a part or model number and look it up. hope this helps.

My Kenmore refrigerator is not cooling properly. Freezer portion works fine but not refrigerator. Came on suddenly.

I had the same problem. The frezzer worked but the fridge was not getting cold. What I have learned is that the frezzer make the fridge cold, so if the frezzer is working then something is blocking the cold air to get into the fridge. Most likely ice. The air come in at the bottom of the inside of the fridge next to the frezzer. Pull everything out of the frezzer, then unscrew the plannel that runs along the back and you see if there is ice. If so turn frezzer off and dry out the frezzer. I used hot water.

Amana side-by-side fridge freezer only cold at the bottom

yes the evap fan in the frezer should be running when the compressor is running[it may not for a minute or so as it starts up.Amana's are good for the connectors at the evap fan motor comming apart.the connectors are white and will look like its together but when you pull it will come apart.i would always cut the connector out and use a wire nut so wont happen again.if any other questions please email thru FixYa and i will be glad to help. God bless ,tom

Frezzer is fine but fridge is warm

See if cold air is coming out of the air diffuser top-back freezer side of fridge. A common problem is a bad air diffuser assembly. Sometimes it may freeze closed and break when it tries to cycle. The freezer usually works fine.
