Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

My Amana Washer Model# NTW4650YQ0 that I bought just on 4/3/2013 will give me cold water and hot water but no warm water. The warm water is as cold as the cold water. What could the problem be?

The techinician who came out said there was an electrical problem somewhere but I received a call from his boss today stating that the warm water being cold is because of the temperature outside. My washer is sitting on my back porch but even in the dead of night when the temperature is quite cool the warm water temperature is still very cold. In fact, as he checked it yesterday, there was a breeze and he didn't break a sweat so the temperature on the porch is much cooler than in the yard. Again, there is no warm water in the middle of the night when the temperature has dropped below 70 degrees (my A/C set to 72 degrees never even come on). My research indicates it could be a cylinoid problem but they're refusing to entertain that possibility because there isn't an error message. I disagree with their assessment!

SOURCE: Keg cooler dropping below freezing (DKC644BLS)

Thirsty, you didn't provide a Make or Model number with your post. It's difficult to find parts without that information. However, given your symptoms, you should look closely at the control board on this unit. It is most likely the culprit. The flashing display gives it away! BUT, why did it blow out? 3 things could lead to that; 1.) shorted out temperature thermistor inside the box. (it is very small, less than an inch long... probably behind a protective cover. It tells the computer what temp the box is at by temp variable resistance values.) If I were working on this myself? I'd change it out along with the Control Board. 2.) Simple electrical failure of the control board (moisture, etc...) 3.) Unit suffered from a Power Surge. Do you have it plugged into a surge suppression device? If not, you should. Tracy

SOURCE: cooler wont cool below 48 degrees.

Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations

The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
cooling quickly;
• Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
(maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
the graduated control dial.
• Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
• When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
o'clock position on the graduated blue control
• Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
• Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
• To maintain temperatures ranging between
34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
• To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
control knob to the "0" position.

It can have something to do with the wether. As it gets hotter you need more air flow on the back to pull the air up and away. You can add a fan just like the one on a computer. Also make sure the thermister inside on the coil is attached tightly to the fins in the back of the fridge. The control boards have been known to work with an inttermitent problem. The worst thing is you could have a floating blockage in the coil if this is the case it will happen more often and eventually stop working.

SOURCE: Temperature on Keg Cooler (DKC644BLS) is dropping below freezing

Mine did this as well. last night the diplay read "LE" and the temp controls and the C/F buttons were unresponsive. I called Danby. Although I was on hold for 30 minutes, when they did answer they were very helpful. As mentioned elsewhere here, the touchpad has gone bad. You can order it right over the phone. The price of the touchpad is only $2 and shipping is $7. I ordered 2 of the touchpads (why not, right?) and the shipping was still $7 for the both. # for Danby is1-800-263-2629. Make sure your phone is charged.

Since U get warm water that tells you that the cold and hot water solenoids are both operating. Ergo the anomaly has to be with the device that controls temperature.

most inlet water hoses have screens in them.  You could remove the hose from the back of the washer and see if there is water flow.   If there isn't, the hot water valve assembly is defective.  These are solenoid operated valves that admit water into the tub.  They can be accessed behind the washer after you remove the back.

Kenmore 90 series washer no hot water

CHeck to see if the screens in the water valve are plugged. If not the hot water side of the valve went out. Replace the water valve and it will fix both the hot and cold problem.

Amana washer has no hot water - cold works fine

There is a solenoid control valve on all washing machines, located where the water hoses enter the machine. If you have a rubber mallet, you can whack the machine gently with the mallet. If the problem is resolved, it was just a stuck valve. If not, then you likely will need to replace the whole solenoid valve control. Typically there are controls for each water supply.
