Question about Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water
We did some self-diagnosis before calling tech. Freezer stopped cooling. We check the frost pattern on the coils inside freezer. The pattern was uneven, so we thought it was something other than defrost thermostat. Fans were all running and so was compressor (it was hot to touch). We had a tech come out and he said it was a compressor issue, so he replaced it. Next day, freezer still wasn't cooling properly. We called tech and he came out and said he needed to flush coils. I don't understand what needed to be flushed. After that, the freezer cooled to 0-10 degrees, but then into the night started warming up again. We called tech again and he said coils have most likely filled with sludge again and refrigerator is shot. We should buy a new one. I'm not ready to give up based on one opinion, so I'm looking for another opinion to say I need to replace or tell me there is a way to fix our problem.
Without physically looking at unit and going on what your saying I would say the unit has a restriction in the sealed system. this can be fixed with the correct steps and techniques. the biggest question is expense and only you can determine that. Here are the steps necessary.
this is a time consuming process and quite honestly expensive. Hope that helps thx peyton
