FREEZER WORKS BUT FRIDGE IS 50-55 DRGREES

I have an Amana ARSE66MBW side by side that the frezzer is working but the fridge is 50-55 degrees. It worked fine for 2 weeks now it has started this. I have checked the damper in the back of the fridge and it is open however there is no air coming threw it. I checked the fan in the freezer and it is working fine. Please help.....

    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

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 ARSE66MBW SIDE BY SIDE FREEZER COIL FINS GET TOO FROSTED ?


The frost should be uniform on the coils. Uneven frost pattern is a sign of low freon. Most systems are sealed but a qualified tech can recharge the system after finding the leak and cap it off.

Freezer won't go below 10 and fridge goes between 40 and 60 degrees


Ensure the condenser is not clogged with dust or other debris.
Ensure the condenser fan (usually found in back) is turning when the fridge is running.

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.

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)

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.
