I just replace my defrost timer & defrost thermostat. The timer is in the front bottom. Remove the kick plate at the bottom & you should see an orange knob. It takes about 10 min to replace. The thermostat is located in the freezer section. Remove the lower panel. This will expose the cooling coils and the defrost thermostat. Takes about an hour to replace.

Remove the grill at the bottom of the fridge there is a black box wth a knob sticking out you can turn in only one direction clockwise till you hear a click and the compressor and fan will cut off if running.

Amana ssd21sw stop cooling freezer side frost in rear wall any sugestions


Defrost cycling problem which will affect cooling the fridge compartment by struck the freezer fan's function.To solve defrost problem:
First, locate the defrost timer which may hidden behindcorners of the fridge at the back bottom, in some models located in the ceilingof the fresh food section or behind the cold control cover. Once you locate thedefrost timer, slowly turn the screw in the middle of the defrost timer withstraight screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. Now it's in defrost. If thedefrost heater(s) starts, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. Ifthe heater(s) does not start, unplug wire cord to check ohm test for continuityof heater. If continuity is there, plug cord wire which gives power 120volts(check specification) to heater. If heater no starts, bypass defrost thermostatby join the 2 wires in the defrost thermostat. If the heater now comes on,replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad,replace it. Thanks and hope helpful.

Compressor and fan work on cendenser, evaporater works, but the fan on the evaporater in the freezer rear cuts off after the initial run cycle. The coils then freeze. What are your suggestions replace...


Probably a bad defrost thermostat. The fan motor power runs through the defrost thermostat then to the fan motor.If the defrost thermostat is opening too soon, you get no fan and no defrost.
Yes you can replace this part yourself.

SQD26VW AMANA STOPS COOLING AT THE TOP,BOTTOM SEEMS TO BE COOLING AND WHEN PROBLE ACUURS THE WATER STOPS


Hi R,

Based on your description, the defrost limit has failed and should be replaced. The job takes about 30 minutes. The part you'll need is a WR50X55. You can find it online by plugging that number into a search engine, or pick one up locally at an appliance parts retailer.

UNPLUG THE FRIDGE BEFORE CONTINUING!!!

Clean out all the stuff in the freezer and remove the shelves. Then remove the panel in the back of the freezer section. You'll see the defrost limit clipped to the evaporator coils at the top right. Remember which tube it's clipped to, then take it off the tube.

Now clip the wires close to the limit and remove the limit. Strip those 2 wires back about 3/8" and connect them to the new limit one wire at a time. Cap these wires off with wire nuts. All you gotta do now is use one of the clips in the kit (I use the "U" shaped one, NOT the "W" shaped one) and clip it to the tube you removed the old one from. Rebuild everything and plug the fridge back in. That's it!

NOTE---> The fan inside the freezer will NOT come on immediately. The derfrost limit you just installed must get below 55 degrees first, then it'll turn the fan on. OK?

If there's anything else I can help you with, please write back. If not, and this has fixed your problem, please rate me.

Freezer side blowing all the time and fridge side is warm with no cooling on amana side by side unpluged and defosted with hair dryer and it worked for a couple days then went back warm in fridge side...


You have a defrost issue.
Adaptive defrost control.
Defrost thermostat.
Defrost heater.
These are the only 3 parts involved.
If there was a model number I could be more help.

Fridge and freezer not cooling properly!


Sounds like a problem with defrost system , It could be one of there components , timer, heater, or defrost thermostat. try advancing the timer, down at the lower area behind the grill. with a screw driver by putting it into the dial advance and turn it till it clicks and the unit shuts off. now you should see red glow at bottom of back panel in freezer or here sizzling . if this does not happen then it will be the heater or the thermostat.
