Question about Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
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.
