Question about Amana ASD 2624 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Neither Freezer nor refrig is cooling

Got home last night to puddle on floor in front of side by side fridge (Amana, ARS2662). Contents of freezer, mainly ice bin, were half melted/thawed. Refrig side contents were also warming. I could hear something running, whether a fan or not, and lights are working, just no cold air. The unit's otherwise run fine in the four years I've had it. Possible suspects: Never knew to clean the coils (underneath). That's probably just for operating efficiency, but could it affect the compressor? Also, seal on fridge side wasn't completely tight though can't imagine that would make a (big) difference, and it wouldn't have been the first time. If not either of those possibilities, have no clue. Haven't explored too much. Did unplug unit on way out door this morning (Will not turning off water cause flood? And should I have opened doors?) What can I check out before paying for a service call and maybe more? Thanks!

Re: Neither Freezer nor refrig is cooling

Pull the compressor side cover off. Pry off the square box. This is your compressor start relay. Check for continuity. It's probably blown. If ok check for voltage to the compressor.

Refrig side not cooling....freezer side operating fine

Check that the damper vent that sends cold air from the freezer into the fresh food side is not blocked by contents. Check that the damper is opening to allow cool air to transfer. Put the fridge into diagnostic mode to check the thermistors.

First thing this a.m. we discovered a puddle of water on the floor on the left side of the fridge. This is not the first we are wondering what is causing this? I am guessing about the profile #...

You have a plugged defrost drain.
Unplug refrig. Unload freezer. Remove shelves. Take back panel out of freezer. Use a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water to flush water in the area of the defrost drain hole until it is clear and water will run through it into the defrost drain pan under the refrig. The drain is a hole about the size of a nickel, usually in the very back center, below the cooling coils. You can use the turkey baster to force water into and eventually through the drain hole. Remove ice from floor of freezer.
Re-assemble, refill freezer, and plug in. Now, when your refrig defrosts, the water will go out the drain instead of onto the freezer floor and out the freezer door onto your floor.

Freezer and fridge not cooling properly

Clean it up. Check under it and behind, clean ,vacume and or blow out all dust and check the fins on the bottom, a soft brush and portable air compressor work really well but very dusty, take out side if possible, or just vacume really well.

Referidgerator side is not cooling?? Help?

I had this problem. Here's what I found: The cooling core on the freezer side was froze up. Covered in ice. I think the reason this happened was that the freezer door was held open by one of the slide out trays just enough to pull in outside air. Don't know how long it was like this. When I found it (and corrected it) the interior of the freezer was covered in ice crystals. From then on the refer side contents began warming up. There was no flow of cool air to the refer side from the freezer side (this cool air comes in from the freezer side fan near the top left side of the refer side). Freezer side was near zero temp and the unit ran continuously. Here's what I did: Removed everything from both sides (put it all in another fridge/freezer). Turned off (or unpluged) the fridge and left it off over night. I put towels under the fridge because there can be an over flow of water that could go to the floor. It works great again.
