How to clean the bad smell?


I would not recommend it, there should not be anything there that needs cleaning except the insulation and possibly condenser coils. Somerefrigeratorshave their condensercoilsbehind a removable grille in the front. If yours does, snap off or unscrew the grille and clean thecoils, as above. Step 3: Wipe down the wall, the back of therefrigerator, and the sides with a damp cotton cloth and a little dish soap. Then vacuum and clean the floor

Air conditioner grating


Some models have openings under the bottom of the radiator area. You may need to remove a plastic cover to reach it.


I see that this problem is about 9 months old.

My Amana ABC2037DPS Refridgertor is not keeping items cool. Last time the serviceman came out he went into the back and "RESET" the unit. Does anyone know how to RESET the Refridgerator?


Most likely the coils under the refrigerator need cleaning. Unplug the refrigerator and remove the front, vented cover below the door. With a vacuum cleaner and crevice tool clean the coils off. It may also help the clean off the door gasket and apply a very thin coat of Vaseline. (Don't forget to clean the refrigerator edge that makes contact with the gasket.)

What causes mould in dishwashers , cleaned it yesterday mould was thick in it what's causing this


The mold is caused by food particles not getting fully pushed through the drain hose when the dishwasher drains. The drain hose is corrugated, and bits of food particles can sometimes collect on the ridges and in the valleys of the corrugation. Given the right circumstances, this can cause a gradual buildup inside the hose, just like cholesterol in our arteries. The presence of moisture and lack of sunlight in the hose allows mold to grow on these food particles. You will want to remove the grates at the bottom or back of your dishwasher (usually removing just a couple of screws will do it) and clean with bleach water (a cup of bleach in a gallon of water) as far down as you can reach. After you have done that, replace the grate, put the rest of the bleach water in the bottom of the dishwasher and run a regular cycle (no dishes, please!). Why not just put the bleach water in and run the cycle? Because that will kill the mold, but will not remove its build-up. You want to remove the build-up first, as far as you can reach---it's easier to remove when it's live. Then kill what's left in the drain.

If your problem was serious enough, you may want to replace your drain hose, too.

How do you clean cat & dog fur/hair from around the coils?


On some you can remove the vent at the bottom below the doors and can reach the coils with a long brush. On some you remove part of the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge so you can reach the coils.

My dishwasher is leaving water in the bottom after finished. The dishes are not cleaning. Are the two related?


Yes more than likely you have a restriction in your pump/drain. you will need to remove the drain cover in the bottom of the dishwasher and clean it out
  • Empty the dishwasher and remove the dish racks so that you can easily locate the drain inside your dishwasher. The drain is under a drain grate, usually at the back of the dishwasher.

  • Remove the drain grate by either popping the grate out, or by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. Different types of dishwashers will have different options.

  • Use the soapy water and the toothbrush or scrub brush to clean inside the drain area and the grate.

  • Rinse the drain area with clean water. Then replace the drain grate.

  • Pour ½ cup of salt, 1 cup of baking soda and 2 cups of vinegar into the drain (in that order). The mixture will bubble. This will clean the drain and the drain hose.

  • Wait until the vinegar/baking soda mixture has stopped bubbling. Then pour 1 cup of bleach into your detergent dispenser. Replace the dish racks and run the empty dishwasher on a regular cycle. This will clean the entire machine


  • If this does not solve the issue your drain hose may be plugged or crimped and lastly your pump may be failing.

    You say clean outside coils and fan motor coils. Where are they?


    The "outside" coils that you are looking for on a refrigerator will be found either on the back, or in the case of your Amana, on the bottom - behind the toe space bezel. There are no coils on the back of the fridge.

    The coils are usually thin, black grates that contain the refrigerant. Be careful not to damage them when cleaning. Open the freezer door (yours is a bottom freezer type) and simply grasp at the top of the bezel an gently pull away from the frame.

    Use a narrow crevice vacuum tool attachment to pull the dust and debris from the coils. Use a flashlight to see beyond the very front. You may also wish to unplug the fridge so that you do not damage the fan if it is struck by the tool while running. You should vac the coils annually or more frequently if the fridge is in a dusty area - or there is a lot of pet hair collecting on the coils. Some fridges also have the fan hidden behind a removable panel on the at the bottom of the back side of the fridge. If cleaning fan blades - you must unplug the fridge before attempting. Vacuum any dirt and dust on visible coils seen near the fan.

    Good luck!

    Standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher


    I had the same problem - a 10 minute fix. The issue tends to be that the trap gets clogged by debris (like broken glass etc.) and restricts the amount of water that can be evacuated by the tub.

    1. Undo the trap cover (two hex headed screws)
    2. Remove the trap cover
    3. Remove the inner trap grate
    4. BE CAREFUL NOW ! Gently remove debris - this can have broken glass in it !!! - You can use a wet vac if you have one. Ensure all debrs is removed and the trap is clear.
    5. Clean trap cover and grate
    6. Re-install cover and grate
    7. Bingo !

    How do I remove the grate on the bottom to clean the coils


    They are usually held in with clips that snap in and out. This is especially true if you don't see any visible screws. Give it a good tug on one side and see if it pops out.

    I cannot get to the drip pan under refridgerator to empty it. It is filled with sludge and smells bad


    Thank willie for helping with one: "Well, it looks like the pan is a seperate plastic pan and not the compressor mounting pan like some of the newer ones are. It appears that you have to remove the condensor fan motor and mounting bracket then maybe the pan will left up and over the compressor, or maybe there is enough room to lift the pan up and out the front over the condensor coils"
