SOURCE: amana bottom refrigerator bx20rw, how do i replace

This link will show an exploded view of the area. Part number 6 is the defrost thermostat. Cut and paste into your browser.

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=273&diagram_id=810195#d810195

Basically you need to empty the freezer, remove the drawer and back panel, unclip the thermostat and replace, there are two wires and should be the same on the new one, use caution not to damage the evaporator coils.

Amana ssd21sw stop cooling freezer side frost in rear wall any sugestions


Defrost cycling problem which will affect cooling the fridge compartment by struck the freezer fan's function.To solve defrost problem:
First, locate the defrost timer which may hidden behindcorners of the fridge at the back bottom, in some models located in the ceilingof the fresh food section or behind the cold control cover. Once you locate thedefrost timer, slowly turn the screw in the middle of the defrost timer withstraight screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. Now it's in defrost. If thedefrost heater(s) starts, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. Ifthe heater(s) does not start, unplug wire cord to check ohm test for continuityof heater. If continuity is there, plug cord wire which gives power 120volts(check specification) to heater. If heater no starts, bypass defrost thermostatby join the 2 wires in the defrost thermostat. If the heater now comes on,replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad,replace it. Thanks and hope helpful.

My Amana refrigerator defrost timer is supposed to cycle every eight hours. Instead it takes about 14 hours to cycle around back to the defrost mode. The defrost mode does last for the proper 20 minutes....


Relax, some people exagerate was all I was saying.
Anyhow, go to a good parts store and ask for a Supco EDT (Electronic Defrost Timer) replacement as they are more reliable and not much difference in price.

My in-laws Amana ATB1832AR Top Freezer has stopped cooling. It was purchased 7/1/2005. Is there an inline fuse for the compressor that may have gone out?


you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, ie defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Amana model B136car# seems not to be defrosting


There are only two elements in that defrost system; the heating coils themselves and a timer; I have lost both of these (not simultaneously) on occasion.
The timer is not costly and not that difficult to replace.
The heater coils are another matter; some DISassembly is required.
Since it is unlikely that coils in both the freezer and refrigerator are not likely to fail at once, it looks like the timer is at fault.
