Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Amana HUM-FP Home Humididfier installation does not look correct. Water enters the unit from the bottom instead of the top. Cannot find installation instructions to verify

The Humidifier water line enters the bottom of the humidifier, which doesn't make sense. The humidifier does not seem to be functioning in this cold weather. The humidstat is set to high for 20 degree fahrenheit. Currnet ambinet temperature is around 25-35 at night.

SOURCE: Installation problem

I WOULD CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH V/A OUT-PUT ON TRANSFORMER. I DONT KNOW IF YOURS CAME WITH ITS OWN TRANSFORMER. IF IT DIDNT YOU SHOULD HAVE A MINIMUM OF A 40 V/A RATING STAMPED OR PRINTED ON THE EXISTING TRANSFORMER. IF THE TRANSFORMER IS EXTREAMLY HOT ... YOU MAY NEED A 75 V/A TRANSFORMER WITH THE SAME VOLTAGES. INCREASING THE V/A CANNOT DAMMAGE ANYTHING IT JUST GIVES YOU MORE POWER WHEN EXCESIVE CONTROLS AND WIRING ARE ADDED TO A HVAC LOW-VOLAGE (24v) CIRCUIT. IF YOU LIKE YOU CAN CALL ME AT 727-363-7071. I AM A RETIRED HVAC&R CONTRACTOR WITH 45 YEARS EXPERIENCE. I HATE THE NEW SENSORS THEY HAVE TO ACTIVATE THESE NEW HUMIDIFIERS. I USE TO WIRE THE HUMIDIFIER TRANSFORMER (SUPPLIED WITH HUMIDIFIER) TO THE LINE (110V) SIDE TO THE LOW SPEED ON YOUR BLOWER MOTOR. THAT WAY THE ONLY THING THAT INTERUPTS THE CICUIT IS THE HUMIDISTAT. YOU NEVER WANT THE HUMIDIFIER TO RUN IF YOUR SYSTEM IS NOT "CALLING FOR HEAT". NEVER TRY TO ENERGIZE THE WATER SOLENOID THROUGH YOUR HEAT WIRE(USUALLY SMALL THE WHITE WIRE) FROM THE THERMOSTAT. THIS WILL RESULT IN BURNING YOUR HEAT ANTICIPATOR OUT ON THE T-STAT.

There may be different causes when the freezer is not reaching to the low themperature it should get to.

Check that the doors are closing properly and the gaskets are ok.

A common cause can be related to evaporator coil problems. Check that the fan is working and that the the coil is not iced up.

Leave the fridge off , and with door opened for over 24 hours, until you defrost ice condensed on the evaporator coil.
After this the fridge should cool up properly , at least first few days. Check also: Cleaning the condenser coils




Check that the evaporator fan is working , if it is not you will need to check the voltage coming to the fan , and eventually replace the part. Check here :

  • Some help for an Amana refrigerator fan motor that will not run


  • Being the fridge quite old it is also possible that you need to take out gas weigh and recharge it, this may resolve problem.

    If at this point it still does not cool properly you will need to identify the fault testing parts eventually involved. It'may be a open circuit heater or fuse, or a faulty defrost thermistor on the freezer evaporator or a faulty control board.

    Start checking fan and coil and doing a two-days defrost, if this does not work recharge gas.

    Regards

    SOURCE: Water dispenser frozen?

    I'll take a stab at helping you.
    Most, if not all freezers have a small heater element that keeps the water inlet to that freezer compartment from freezing and if that's defective ( or unplugged ) then any incoming water would freeze before being dispensed or fed into an auto ice maker tray.

    The freezer compartment being 'too cold' should not effect water flow if that heater was operational, however it may allow too much cold air to pass into the refridgerator area causing some food to freeze.

    It's a good idea to keep the coils clean and dust free as a general rule of thumb but those are used as part of the cooling system to draw heat out of the freezer/fridge area but that doesn't seem to be your problem. Hope my comments help !

    Ice maker installation


    do you have a water supply line connected to the refrigerator? if so, it connects to the water solenoid, so you wont need to install that. if you have no water line, not only do you need to install that, but you will also have to check to see if you also need to install the solenoid assembly. if no solenoid is present, you will likely also have to run a plastic water line, ¼", from the solenoid up the back wall into the sleeve near the top of the back wall, which feeds the water into the freezer, into the icemaker.

    if you want to send a check, id be glad to post a video
