Question about Amana ARS2464B Side by Side Refrigerator
I have an Amana side by side that does not freeze and cools poorly. It is an SXD22S2l MF# p1190416wl. I have cleaned the condenser under the unit very thoroughly. The unit runs, the compressor runs, the condones outlet from the compressor gets hot. The fans run. The evaporator coils only get cold at the very top. The first few inches are painfully cold, by the first turn it is cold, none of the front coils feel cool at all. This is after 30 minutes of running with the cover off so no air is going over them. I would think they would be freezing since the air is not there to warm them up. The defrost heater is not on, in fact I undid the clips so that even if it does come on it won't warm the coils, and it is not sitting on anything that can melt or burn, so don't worry. Before digging in this far I replaced the adaptive defrost controller but I really don't thing that is the issue. Even if I tape the light switches up so it doesn't know the door is opening (all three of the door switches) it still does the same thing. I suspect low Freon or something with the evaporator, but that is beyond my tool set to test. Have I missed something? Should I call a repair man or get a new/used unit. Thank you.
If you are only seeing frost on the top portion of the evap coil then you then it sounds as if the unit has sealed system problem (low freon or bad compressor). if the unit is less than 5 years old and made prior to nov '06 it should have a sealed system warranty. if the unit is out of warranty you may want to start looking at new refrigs. good luck peyton
