Question about Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water dispenser keeps freezing!

We have had the Amana AFD2535DE since August. The water dispenser stopped working. The repairman said that the tubing/resorvoir was freezing and had to order an insulator/foam pad to put around the water resorvoir. That worked for a little bit but now the same problem. The water starts to flow after we turn the refrigerator off for a while and the resorvoir is allowed to defrost. We have lowered the temp (from 4 to 3) with same freezing results. It seems that this shouldn't happen! We are afraid to lower the referig temp too much - we like our food cold. Any ideas???

    It's a kenmore, but it's made by Amana and I have the same problem. (Kenmore #596.76603600) Also, the produce bins are freezing in the back. I too have had to raise the temp in the fridge to 45, in order to keep the line from freezing and busting.

It sounds as though there is an cold airflow problem in the fridge and as science states the cold air will drop down to the bottom of the fridge. check that any circulation fans are not jammed with ice or faulty. if not sure where to go do a defrost for 36 hours and check on all the functions after that. tone.

Our Amana afi2538aes is doing the same thing. Had a repairman out. He called tech support at Amana. They had him adjust the "thermistors" but it is colder than ever running at 28-30degrees in the fresh food compartment despite being set at 46 degrees. Tech support also recommended installing some sort of "ice bin seal kit to take care of the problem" according to our invoice from repairman. Repairman was told that the ice bin in the fresh food compartment puts cold air out (to keep the ice frozen) which freezes the food in the fresh food compartment. I called Amana and the rep I spoke to said he couldn't find record of this being a problem with the model but tech support told our repairman "we've had a lot of problems with this happening."

I had this problem for the last few years -yes turning off the freezer with the door open for a few hours worked but is a royal pain in the neck. Using a hairdryer for 15 minutes does too, when it keeps freezing up agin every day. I also had a repairman install the GE kit to keep it from freezing - it worked for awhile, but then stopped working, and the water line again froze up. Looking at solutions around the Internet, the one that made the most sense suggested that there was insufficient insulation in the freezer door directly behind the water dispenser; i also noticed freezing air blowing directly there when the freezer was running. So I simply stuffed a cloth towel on the inside of the door where the ice comes through, and hanging down in front of the flat part behind the dispenser - and it did not freeze for several days. i then got a flat piece of insulating styrofoam, about 10inx11in, attached it by velcro to that flat part on the inside of the door, and have not had a problem since.

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.
