Question about Amana ASD2628HE Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refridgerator side is freezing while set to the lowest setting

The manual suggests that it could be the condenser coils are dirty and recommends cleaning them with a vacuum cleaner, which I did.

I found suggestions online that it could be a defective thermostat, a leak in the refrigerant system, a defective air damper, or cold air migration from the freezer.

I found a guide for troubleshooting a refrigerator's thermostat, that is not aimed specifically at this model. I've been trying to locate a repair manual online to help me more easily locate the thermostat in this model.

Any help with a repair manual or schematics on this model, would be great.

Also, any other suggestions for sorting out what is wrong and fixing it.

This did happen upon plugging the unit back in after a cross country move.

Usually the most times a thermostat will go will be upon moving ref to different location or unpluging it and repluging back in later would go with replacing thermo. hope this helps

Side by side refridgerator about 4-5 years old coil in freezer getting too hot and melting things.


Hi!!

A warm condenser is usually a sign of:

Temp. control for freezer set too low.
Timer switch defective
Defective Thermostat
Low refrigerant
Faulty compressor, capacitor or thermal switch
Condenser Fan at bottom back or unit not working.
Condenser clogged up or dirty (air not circulating thru it)

Due to the equipment and expertise needed to repair the unit, I suggest to call a refrigeration technician.

Don't forget to rate this post!! Good Luck!!

Freezer set to lowest setting and ice cream still very soft. The fridgerator set to the highest setting no coolder 40 degree's


Since it is a shared refrigeration system I would suggest lowering the refrigerator setting a bit. Be sure the door gaskets are in good shape and not leaking. Try placing a piece of typing paper under the gasket and closing the door, it should stay and require a little effort to remove. Try this all around. Another possibility and probably he real problem is the condenser is plugged and or the condenser fan is not operating properly.
Good luck,

Refridgerator freezing food


dm, I'm not sure if the thermostat is mechanical or electronic. Assuming mechanical...and I do...turn it to the lowest number...does it turn off? If this works properly, the problem is likely not the control. Does the compressor turn off at any time? If not after an hour or so of operation, the stat could be defective. That's my first guess. Oh, have you made sure that you don't have the ducts in the freezer blocked? The would deflect too much cold air to the fridge section.

Next, defrost the unit and clean the condenser coils. This will help the unit work properly. Then, wait awhile with the unit off. Meanwhile, access the compressor in the rear of the unit. Find the largest pipe coming out of the compressor. Turn the unit on. The largest pipe should frost and then, in about 5 minutes or so...either cause condensation or dry out. If neither happens and the line is either not COLD to the touch or frosty, you're low on gas. If the unit is less than 5 years old, you may get warranty coverage on the sealed unit from the mfgr. Believe it or not, too little gas will cause freezing in some cases!
