Question about Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frig Freezes Up

Our botton freeezer stays cold but does not freeze ice cream and the like. Sometimes the top refrigerator does not keep things cold....room temperature milk, etc. We have cleaned the coils. About once a week we have to dethaw the coils on the back because they are covered in ice. There is no ice build up on the inside of the freezer but this past week, we have started having water pooling out from under the front of the freezer. The compressor has already been replaced once on this and it was expensive. I would like to try to fix this myself, but don't know where to start. This fridge is only 5 years old and I think they for how much they cost they should last longer than this.

Usually it is one of two problems. Either the defrost timer is acting up ( staying on too long or not  going off soon enough. It is usually . More likely is a refrigerant leak. Her is a easy way to tell. the compressor whould be warm when running, not hot The coils that you cleaned shoud be warm at one end and change tempature as it goes to the other,but never cold at the top. If the compressor is hot or the condensor(coils) are cool the you likly have lost part of the charge. If that be the case you have a leak and if you have it serviced it is the law that they find and fix the leak m, not just charge it up.  It is now necesaary to have a EPA license to buy the refrigerant.  Sorry.

Hi welcome to fixya, Well this could be a few things. First any frost on back panel? If so this is a defrost problem, Is the ice cream the only thing not cold enough? How about the fresh food side?

We bought our frig exactly 6 years ago (to the date!) and suddenly the frig part is cool, but not cold, while the freezer section stay cold and ice is frozen.


Check your freezer section ! Is the coil frozen over ? If so it may have a burnt out defrost element or a bad defrost timer. When the freezer coil freezes over cold air is restricted to the refrigerator section.

Make sure that when you have removed the ice you also cleaned out the unit especially the freezer and the drains. Clogging due to dirt is sometimes the cause of coils to freeze up. I would advise to have the thermistor checked. I am unsure if your unit has auto defrosting capabilities, if it has you may want to have the circuit checked out.

Ice Maker inlet tube freezes up.


Try runnning a manual test of the defrost cycle, could be that you are not getting enough airflow to the frig side, while the frig side is calling for more cold. Becuase the frig side is calling for more cold, and not able to get there it is causing more airflow across the water tube.???

I have a Roper RT21LMXKQ00 Freezer wont freeze


The problem is a defrost problem. The freezer coil has frost on it and thus restricts the cold air from flowing. This affects the refrigerator as it gets its cold air from the freezer. The ice will not make if the temperature is above 12*F and this also is why ice cream is like mush.

Freezer not cold enough to freeze items solid


Here are some things you can check yourself. Does it run all the time almost non-stop? if so check the vents under the front of the frig and make sure they are clean. Aslo check the condenser coil (either in back of the frig,or under the frig)Make sure that coil is clean. The condenser coil has to have contact with the outside air in order to release the heat it removed from inside the freezer.
Make sure you frig has plenty of ventilation ( wall too close on sides and back) Hope this helped. If not then you should have a pro look at it.
