Question about Amana ARB2217CSR Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Amana Model DRS2462BW, SN 0112161443. Noticed yesterday that frozen items were not frozen anymore. Freezer side holds temp of 31 degrees. The fan in freezer is running when I open the door. The refirgerator side seems to be doing fine, temp stays at 37 degrees.
Is this a fixable probelm? Could it be the auto defrost messing up? Have heard it is possible to bypass auto defrost and freezer will work again? Also, how do I find out if this unit still has any warranty left? Please help !

Doug, This model has an adaptive defrost board. You can put it into a forced defrost through the control panel. Most of the time I have been finding the control board (Jazz) board to be the culprit. To enter into a forced defrost, open the right door only. Hold the light switch down. Press the refrigerator temp down key 3 times. Release the light switch. Display should show Fd. Press the refer temp down key 1 more time to confirm. Toggle between short S and long L defrost by pressing the refer temp up key. For testing, use the L. Press the refer temp down key once more and you are now in defrost. Now, if you want you can peel the freezer back panel off to see if the heater is coming on. With it in forced defrost you should hear sizzling and popping after a while. To get out of the test mode, just close both doors. The Jazz board, part 12002449, is in line with a defrost bi metal that sits on the evap. If the bi-metal is bulged, that could be the problem. Like I said earlier, I have found in most cases the Jazz board itself to be the problem. Hope this helps you understand the refer a little better...Catriver.
