Temperature Problem - Amana (Maytag) Refrigerator Model AFD2535DES

Serial # 10939246EX.  The temperature in the 2 door upper compartment is not holding.  I normally set it at 4 (medium temp) but had to turn it up to the coldest - 7.  Still not functioning.  Having to throw out milk, dairy products, etc.  This unit is not 2 years old. The freezer section is working just fine. I called Amana Customer Service and a recorded message came on telling me to call back Mon thru Friday.  This is Saturday morning and I have been looking for the service manuals that came with the refrigerator, but still can't locate them.  Any suggestions on what I need to do?  I think the refrig is still under warranty.

Re: Temperature Problem - Amana (Maytag) Refrigerator...

This comes with a 1 yr warranty from date of purchase.  Look and see if there is a thick frost buildup on the back panel in the freezer section.  If no frost, shut the freezer door and feel for air flow out of the top middle vent in the fridge section.  I would remove that vent cover to make sure the damper is open.  If the damper is closed push it open then feel for air flow.  If no air flow is detected then the evaporator fan motor is bad which is a very commom problem on this model, in fact the most common problem.  If the damper is shut and when you hold it open you do feel air flow then the damper is bad.  Let me know what you find.

Check the heater for the refridgerater, if you put the defrost into manual mode (turn the freezer switch to zero several times 2 ) it should go into defrost mode, the heater is located at the bottom of the evaporator (inside the freezer door). If it doesn't go on then the heater or the bimetalic unit are bad.

I have a Maytag refrigerator similar to the current model (GS2625GEKS), I purchased mine in 2003. Serial number unknown. All of a sudden my freezer is way too cold and my refrigerator is not cold enough....

If the number is similar we will have to go with possibilities. Sound like the auto damper has frozen itself shut between the fresh food and freezer compartments. Some are controlled electrically some manually and others are controlled with a thermostat probe. Your thermostat for one side could be defective and not allowing the damper to open. Your refrigerator must have the correct model number to proceed. What I need you to do is look for the vent through the rear of the refrigerator compartment and sometimes leads directly from the same wall as freezer. Many Maytag brands fall under same series and model similarities. The serial number is not as important to the service Tech as the model number. Look around the door frame near floor and kick plate.I can help but I will need the correct model number, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Doesn't freeze or cool

Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Water despenser is apparently frozen

You may have two mutually exclusive probems... one being the water dispenser doesn't dispense water... As you stated, the obvious remedy would be to replace your filter to see if that is restricting water flow.. secondly, your vegetable crisper is freezing vegetables... chances are that the inlet between the freezer compartment and that vegetable darwer is near there and the damper needs to be closed a bit... See if you can locate the cold air inlet vent and partially close the damper ... Hope that helps...

Refrigerator compartment not cooling

If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.

Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.
