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

1 Answer

Fridge and freezer not getting cold

Within 2hrs I noticed the ice was melting in the freezer (we do not have the automatice dispenser on our fridge) I refilled the ice trays and notice withing 1 1/2 hr the ice in the container was melting and the cube tray's were not even close to freezing. Fan in lower back is working (cold air coming out) I heard the fridge click off. Fan stopped. I cleaned with vaccuum all the grids in front and back by fan. I usually would feel cold air coming from the vent on the fridge side when I opened the door and felt no cold air. I opened freezer and felt no cold air being circulated. Could this be my compressor? I can I fix this problem?

    In Sep. of 2008 we had a wind storm resulting in no electricity for a week, so with an empty frig I cleaned it and waited for power to be restored. I figured frig would be ok when electric came back on but the power came on for a few hours then no power again, then 3 hrs later electric came on again for awhile then off again until the next day when we finally had electricity back for good. The frig seemed to work ok until I noticed the ice cream was soft. A repair man told me to set the frig on its normal setting which is 4 and frig should recover. It seemed to work for awhile but here we are 7mths later and the frig is not right. We emptied the freezer and I put a temp guage in it and after a day was reading 30 degrees and got up to 50. I swept out the radiator carefully and its still 30 degrees and never got down to 20. The frig side was reading 50 but I don't know if it ever got down to 40 since I can't keep the food mongers out of the frig for 24 hrs. Anyway its definitly not working right so are there any suggestions???

  • You have 2 fans Make sure your top fan is working ,its located inside the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation .Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Why does my daewoo fridge freezer works intermittently ?

You either have a faulty thermostat, a loose connection or most likely a build up of ice inside the freezer. I had the same problem. Almost replaced fridge. Took all the food out one day, took out the racks and disassembled bottom and rear and found a two foot log block of ice inside air return. Removed ice everything works perfectly.

Amana side-by-side fridge freezer only cold at the bottom

yes the evap fan in the frezer should be running when the compressor is running[it may not for a minute or so as it starts up.Amana's are good for the connectors at the evap fan motor comming apart.the connectors are white and will look like its together but when you pull it will come apart.i would always cut the connector out and use a wire nut so wont happen again.if any other questions please email thru FixYa and i will be glad to help.
