SOURCE: Freezer & refrigerator are not getting cold.

Hi,
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

SOURCE: Amana neither fridge nor freezer getting cold enough

the defrost system has failed. to get it working temporarily, take the back panel off inside the freezer. melt ice off with a hairdryer.
after that, fault can be in several areas - defrost heater, thermal fuse or the main pcb

SOURCE: my freezers works but my refrigerator

make sure all your fans are turning. maybe try to remove the knobs and see if you can turn them without the knobs, possibly they could be stripped.

SOURCE: Freezer does not freeze fast enough, icecream gets soft

Faulty Cold control (Temperature Control)
The cold control is a temperature actuated switch and should open when the set temperature has been achieved. If the control does not open and turn the compressor off, it will continue to run and all items in the fresh food section will begin to freeze.

If the control is not closing, the compressor and all fans will cease to operate. Check the control for continuity.

This is usually not a do it your selfer.

Question: was the fridge running when you went to pick it up ?
Was it already on ?
My thinking is that you have the ice build up problem too and that it never thawed. If you unplug it, thawing could take days. Seriously. If you take the inside panel off and get some heat on it
only an hour or so.
You have the exact same model I do, and it works good, just designed poorly. It needs a drain hole on that condensor.
And your fan probably is fine. Do not spend $500.

Amana fridge is not cold


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Freezer and fridge cooling but freezer not freezing and fridge not cold enough


Hello,
Their are a couple things that could be causing that.

The conderser coils under the kickplate below the doors is clogged with dust. Remove the kickplate and check/clean using a refrigerator coil brush that could be purchased from your local hardware store (Lowe's HomeDepot Ace hardware)

The condenser fan motor behind the refrig., behind the lower service plate directly next to the compressor isn't running and needs to be replaced.

Good luck,i hope this helps you to get your refrig back to cold,
Gene

I have an amana bottom freeze abb2227dew the freezer is working fine but the frige isn't cold?


check the regulator or thermostat for the fridge and set it well.
if it is well set then your compressor is losing compression.

Put in garage now unit will not keep cold or freeze.


Since refrigerators were designed to run in your 72° kitchen, when you put a fridge outside, where its colder than normal operating REFRIGERATOR temperatures, i.e. 35-40°F, because that ambient temp is colder than fridge temp, the thermostat in the fridge section reads it as normal temperature, and does not turn unit on. it does not read what the freezer temp is. You have a couple of choices: bring the unit inside, heat your garage, or only use it for pop and beer in the summer. You can reply here or send me a question from my website: www.FixMyFridge.net

I have an Amana Side by Side. The freezer section


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air
check defrost heater, defrost thermostat. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the adaptive defrost control.Part 13 on this diagram of your fridge controls. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=ASD2625KES&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=1268&modelName=AMANA-REFRIGERATOR&diagramPageId=00005&componentDescription=CONTROLS&documentId=M0612301&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Freezer not freezing


It sound like you may be having defrost issues,Check to see if you have a build up of ice on the inside rear wall of the freezer.If so,You will need to have the defrost timer,defrost element,and the defrost thermostat checked.
