Question about Amana ARS2464B Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I purchased an Amana side-by-side refrigerator in March 1999. About 2 weeks ago I noticed the freezer was not as cold as it used to be. I checked the temperature and found the freezer to be between 17 and 20 degrees F. where it was always 0 F. before. The compressor cycles normally, but does stay on most of the time. The refrigerator is running about 40, which is normal. A repairman told me that the lines feeding the compressor have become clogged by the f\luid coagulating in the compressor and filters and the compressor is over-heating. He said the compressor must be replaced. I can?t understand that if the compressor is running just fine and cooling the freezer to 17-20 degrees and the lines are just clogged, why can?t I just replace the lines and save the compressor. All the fans both inside and outside are running properly. I am 80 years old and living on a fixed income and I can hardly afford a new compressor or a new refrigerator. Please e-mail me at rlk28@verizon.net.

I think the system where the gas circulates might be blocked and this is causing this.It's not an easy task to clean it but I think it will be cheaper than replacing the compressor if it runs ok.

Water underneath the freezer section


Please check for the water passage beneath the freezer. There will be a small pipe and there is a possibility that that pipe path is blocked with ice or dirt.

Freezer too cold, fridge not working - Amana freezer on bottom


Something tells me you are right.
I'm sure you know that cold air seeks the lowest point, in your case, the freezer drawer.
About every combination unit I have ever seen uses a fan to 'stir' the air in a controlled manner and one or more adjustable vents to allow you to balance the distribution of the cooled air.
I'd place my bet on the failure of a (possibly Chinese) fan motor that isn't turning anymore.
