Question about Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water
Recently had defrost timer replaced. Fan sounds all the time. The water dispenser stops working and then the ice in icemaker defrosts along with icecream and bread. have had a tech come out 3 times and cannot fix problem.
1 the defrost timer should cut off every 6 8 or 12 hours (unless its electronic or wired to accuminilate time). If the defrost timer is direct and alwaqys has the timer motor advancing every 6,8 or 12 hours it has to cut off. 2 I have had what I believed to be a clear defrost problem because the evaporator coil is froze up. However I find after a reoccouriung problem like you discribe that (maybe in addition to the timer) the suction pressure is low and the compressor is running all the time. Thus the sysytem is low on charge. 3 The frost pattern will be the most tell tell sign of your problem. A slightly clear evaporator on a few passes could indicate the need to check the sealed system and charge.A mostly blocked evaporator with little space for the air to be drawn through indicates agaIN THE defrost is not working or the defrost thermostat is cuting out before the heat has time to complete the defrost. A fan inside that is running and a freezer getting cold but the refrig isnt is mostly a damper or air flow from fan problem.
