Amana frig model #TCI18A3L is not running

Due to a mishap while testing the ice maker, the frig apparently got shorted out and no longer is running. I was wondering if there is a reset switch somewhere maybe in the back?

    It said to test the voltage at 2 test points on the ice maker, then to short two other test points with an insulated wire to see if the ice maker motor started.Apparently the two test points that were shorted were the wrong ones, because it went POP, and everything shut down.

If the lights are of too, you tripped the breaker in your house. Check and see if you have a ground fault plug near by also. Do you have refrigerator lights?

Why does my side by side amana frig (model ARSE66ZBW) freez anything near the back wall of frig ?


On your Amana model there are a couple things I want you to check. I think that you have already double checked your temperature settings but check the temperature again and set a little warmer if possible. Many times this is not the issue causing the colder than normal temps in the fresh food section. Your model ARSE66ZBW has something called an auto damper Click Here=> ARSE66ZBW Controls Then you will see item location number 8. That is your 12571701 Auto Damper I would like you to see if frost or ice is blocking the vent and causing it to remain open. Read over this service manual=> HERE This manual is not the same as your model but has all the instructions needed to test the components I am discussing. Test the Auto Damper, check all vents inside fresh food compartment, thermostat (if Running Continious) and if damper is stuck in the open position without ice causing the problem the manual and I will be here to help you test the thermostat embedded into the damper to see if the damper itself will need replaced, Looking to here from you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I woke up this morning to a flooded kitchen due to the ice maker, in my Amana refrigerator, not making ice and just pouring out water. What is the problem?


Either the switch in the ice maker is stuck keeping the valve open or the valve has stuck. Unplugging the frig will tell you which it is. If the water stops when the frig is unplugged it is the switch. If it does not then it is the valve.

Hi, look inside freezer and see if there is a frost build up on the rear wall. Also listen to see if the evapotator fan motor is running.

Ice cream and bread don't freeze, food in frig DOES freeze


Not fixed but I do not want to spend MORE money to find out what's wrong with this AMANA piece of ****. Apparently, from research on the net, the compressor or motor is not strong enough in this unit to actually do the job...but if anyone has any suggestions, I'm happy to hear them...
