Question about Amana ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer freezes over and runs continualy

The vents on the freezer are covered with frost and the freezer seems to run excessively. I defosted it once, but a few days later it did the same thing. Could I possibly have too much in the freezer or didn't I let it fully defrost?

The number one cause of freezers frosting up and especially that fast, would be that moisture is getting in.  The cause of this is more than likely that your magnetic seal around the door is not making a tight seal.  Check around the door and make sure it is sealed tight.  Even the smallest of gaps will make a big difference.  More than likely it is leaking on the side that has the most frost.  Hope this helps.

Refrigerator is running below freezing even though the settings are set as high as possible. Water pools at the bottom and then freezes


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

and or

The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

My freezer is freezing like it should. The fridge however is warm. What would be the problem?


Be sure there's no excessive frost on it cause it may weaken cold air flow around.
Also do not load your fridge with too many unnecessary food stuff.
Arrange food stuff in order and do not block those air vent flowing that will hindrance flow.
Check if the fan is running smoothly.
Thanks, it's a pleasure to help you.

Bottom freezer has high temperature and is defrosting. temperature alert light is on. Tried fast freeze button and turning up the temp gages but nothing seems to be working.


as for high tempreture do u mean it is above the 0 degree normal that its supposed to be set to your freezer goes into a defrost cycel once every 6-8 hours.if your tempreture is rising on the other hand there are a couple things for you to check make sure the fan inside the freezer compartment is running.the following things you will need a meter for to measure the resistance while the power is off check the t-stat,heater to make sure there is continuity if you have continuity in both of these then you would need to check the defrost timer If you are unable to do these tests i strongly suggest you call a technician

Hotpoint refrigerator freezer(top) mod ctx18bacerww not cooling/freezing correctly. removed inside back panel in freezer compartment,found coils partially covered in frost, fan not blowing.. flicked fan...


Hi, fan may have stuck, but you could have a defrost problem, check defrost heater, thermodisc(defrost thermostat) and defrost timer. or excessive moisture, if your days are hot, or if you put hot foods in ref. could result in excessive ice build up. you can manually defrost it, by unpluging ref. for couple of hrs, until all ice melted. then restart. you make get excessive water on floor. be prepared.

Found frig to be defrosting on its own, I cleaned it all out and turn it off for several hours. pluged it in and left it running all night, it a little cool but no where near cold enough or even freezing??


when compressor is running, the fan beside it and the fan in the freezer should be running. make sure coils are clean. if there is frost build up on freezer wall, you may have defost problem that is blocking the flow of air.

Fan noise in freezer of my GE side-by-side refridgerator


You don't have to worry about the ice and frost, Your heater does that for you Your heater comes on and defrost every day. You just need to tighten the screws and clean up the vent where the noise is coming from but I wouldn't worry about it. The temperature on your fridge and freezer is running optimal, You know the saying, if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it....just tap the vent covers every few days.

Refrigerator side by side neither will won't stay cold


You have an automatic defost malfunction. There is a timer (or circuit board) which controls the run and defost modes of your refrigerator. Once in defost, there is a heater that comes on to melt frost behind back panel. Once a certain temperature is reached behind the panel, a defost thermostat (or bi-metal) cuts off the heater. This maintains your frost-free operation.

Freezer not freezing, water in freezer


The frige may be stuck in defrost mode. If the compressor and condensor fan are not running then it is likely in defrost mode. If the compressor is running continuously then there may be a leak in the sealed system where the refrigerant is low or gone. There is a tech sheet located in the very bottom area of the frige (behind the lower vent and in a plastic holder usually). Pull that lower front vent off and use a flashlight to find the tech sheet for any troubleshooting help and were the defrost timer is. Sometimes you can use a flat blade screwdriver to advance the timer past the stuck spot and get it working again. As for checking for a sealed system problem you would need to pull the back wall cover off the freezer section to view the coils. Normal frost pattern would be all the coils covered with a light white frost. If the frost pattern suddenly stops and bare aluminum coils are showing there may be a plug or leak in the system. It's not too often that the new thermistors (your thermostat control) go out. To check you could short across the t-stat to see if you can force a compressor run or take the leads off the thermistor and check the ohm value with a multimeter.
