Question about Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water

1 Answer

Amana side by side with ice/water in the door freezer stops freezing about 8 yrs old

About every other day the freezer though now set to coldest stops freezing, ice melts in storage bin, water leeks down through to the inside of the door where the back of the door water/ice dispenser is located and a huge "ice flow" on the back of the door forms where the water from the melting ice is hitting the cold interior of the door behind the water/ice dispenser on the front of the door...  Is there a freezing or cooling  unit in the door water dispenser? It seems like the only cold generated in the freezer is the inside of the door.  What is going on here?  Thanks alot for any thoughts!

First of all the worst thing you can do is set your fridge on the highest setting even though it has it. That's live reving your car to the red line just because it has it. As far as your challenge is concerned, it sounds like a breach in the seal of the fridge or dispenser. Check to see if the ice despenser is closing properly after use and check the door seal to make sure it's closing tight when the door is closed. To do this, simply inspect it for any bad wrinkles, cracks, folds, etc. if none are visible close the door on a dollar bill and make sure it holds securly all the way around the door. I f it doesn't, the seal may need to be replaced and/or the door is warped. If you continue to have issues, post again, we will work this out.

You have a defrost problem. 3 parts: Timer (or "adaptive defrost control"), defrost heater and def. termination thermostat.Find the timer, it shoud be nehind the bottom front grille to the right on Amana (if you see a blck box under there with a sticker on it, it's the ADC model) turn the timer CW until it clicks. Take the back off the bottom of the freezer and listen. After 5-10 minutes if you hear the sound of the sound of water hitting a hot grill. If you hear this the heater and thermo are working and the problem is the timer/ADC. No hiss? Unplug fridge. Check thermo and heater for continuity. Replace the one that's open. If the heater's open, replace the thermo too: Maybe it didn't open soon emouhg and caused heater failure.

Ice maker freezing up


The problem is in the water valve.
The water supply line going to the Ref is connected to a water valve. This valve is not shutting off completely which causes water to drip into the ice maker. This dripping will freeze and eventually completely block the fill tube in the freezer.

Help, no water but have ice out of door on amana side by side.


The freezer temperature dial is set too cold and it is causing the water to freeze in the tube right where it enters the freezer section.If you turn the temperature selector one or two numbers warmer for the freezer it will help.
You will also have to turn the box off and let the freezer thaw real good so that the line will thaw. Once this has been done, it should work fine.

My freezer is not keeping food frozen


defrost system is malfunctioning causing build up of ice. remove back panel of freezer, check for ice build up. if so, defrost carefulle with a hairdryer. also check drain is not blocked by ice. if it is, use hot water to get rid of it. (takes time)
