Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

We own an Amana bottom freezer; Mod.# BC120TW, Ser # 9708176268. It is approximately 10 - 11 years old. The freezer is not getting to a low enough temperature. We have soft ice cream etc. I have cleaned the unit bottom, condenser area, etc. It still appears to not be working properly. Do you have any suggestions before I have to call a technician? Thanks, Craig Jones North Carolina

If it is constantly running, (compressor and the fan inside of freezer) then the thermostat is working, more than likely you have an inefficient compressor or a low charge in the sealed system due to a refrigerant leak. Touch the compressor, is it almost too hot to touch? Do you hear a buzzing and clicking noise every so often? If you can answer that for me, I could better diagnose it

We have a Amana BR18 Easy Reach bottom freezer. The fridge is turned up all the way, barely keeping food cold. The freezer is not freezing anything (ice, etc.). The freezer is still blowing cool air, but...


Low refrigerant assuming the compressor is always running and not being shut down by the thermostat.

You can hook up an ammeter to the unit to see if the current consumption is below spec, another sign of low gas situation since the motor is not working as hard as under normal conditions.

Salad in drawer is freezing


Good day,
One user claims that the return air vents or vent located at the bottom rear of the fresh food compartment, have collected enough junk to block the cold air from returning to the freezer compartment. You can clean them out but I cannot verify that solution.

The crispers are located in the coldest part of the fresh food compartment.
This problem can occur when the machine gets light usage especially in colder weather, when the machine running time drops and the air in the fresh food stratifies, causing to cold air to pool in the bottom.

Normal may no longer be normal. Controls by their design will tend to run colder as they age. You might try tweaking the control warmer.
Patience and time are the most important tool you have to work with in dealing with this issue.

Amana energy saver not keeping fridge section cool enough. HELP!


if there is frost build up on rear wall of freezer section the unit is not going through defrost cycle which builds up frost on evaporator and restricts cold air flow to the fresh food section. one of three things are bad. defrost heater, defrost thermostat or defrost timer. if no frost on rear wall you might be low of freon.

Amana bottom freezer problem


It sounds like the condenser coil might be freezing up. This happened to me on my bottom freezer. The cooling part of your fridge is only in the back of the freezer compartment. The cold air from the freezer blows up through a vent in the back to the fridge and comes out at the top. If the coils do not defrost (which is what happened with mine) the air flow is blocked by the ice and can't get to the fridge compartment. Your freezer will still be cold but your fridge won't. If you pull the plug on it and time things right you can defrost the coils but this will only postpone the problem. Both will work for awhile again until the coils ice up again. You can also pull out the freezer drawere and try to defrost the coil with a blow dryer. You have to disconnect the icemaker and pull out the back panel behind the freezer to get to it though.

Clicking noise + not cold enough


my Amana did the exact same thing. I had a reparman come out and he fixed it. There are 2 reason for it. It is either the compressor that needs to be replaced (about 300-500 to fix) or the relay for the compressor (around 100 to fix). once it is fixed remember to vacuum the coils from the back of the fridge once a year to extend the life of the compressor.

Bottom freezer not staying cold


One of two things. When you open the freezer drawer, do you hear a fan running? If not, that's the problem. The Evaporator fan. Its' job is to circulate cold air throughout the entire cabinet. Without it, things get toasty. If not the Evap Fan, it'll be the sealed system... meaning that it's developed a leak and freon is escaping (not harmful for you or your Family). If it's just under 5 years old, this will be a warranty repair. Over 5? Bad news... it'll cost ALOT to have it repaired.
