SOURCE: Refrigerator Freezer has excessive frosting and

very possible. That is what should be checked first. Sometimes They can get overloaded with ice and not clear it all in one defrost. Try un-plugging the unit for a couple of hours and let the ice completely clear. If it does it again in a short amount of time then the heater or the timer is most likely the cause. Hope this helps. Good luck.

It is possible that the defrost timer has failed while in defrost. The defrost timer can be found inside the control panel inside the fresh food compartment. The defrost timer is location number 13 in the photo=> HERE You can test the defrost timer by going through a small opening in the control panel or by opening the control panel and using a flat head screwdriver and turning the timer dial slowly clockwise until the compressor and fans restart. If this starts the refrigerator again then you will need to replace the timer because it is defective. I am here should you have questions, Sea Breeze

Fans keeps running and the freezer is cold but not enough to harden ice cream


Look inside the back wall inside freezer and if you see ice building up then your Amana needs either a defrost timer=> 67001036 Defrost Timer or you may be having problems with the defrost heater=> 67002493 Defrost Heater Here are some large pictures to help you locate your parts that may be defective=> Amana_ARB9058CS_Evaporator_Components item location number 15 in lower left side of photo. In this case I think your refrigerator may need the defrost timer below but I would like you to manually turn the clock on the time clockwise slowly until compressor and fans stop running. The defrost timer is located inside the fresh food compartment and just behind the controls for adjusting temps inside fresh food compartment location=> Amana ARB9058CS Controls That is my most likely guess the timer but sometimes it will be the defrost heater or defrost thermostat affect these also here=> 12001937 Defrost Thermostat

Hi, Our refrigerator has stopped cooling and I desperately need to try to fix it myself. Lights still come on. Fan or something is still running but the freezer still works so I thought maybe that's what...


There is likely a problem with the defrost circuit or cold air circulating fan (but could be a low freon charge or other problem). The freezer compartment has the cooling coil with defrost heater and a fan that pulls cold air from the freezer and blows it into the fresh food compartment; based on the setting of the thermostat in the fresh food compartment.

When the defrost heater fails, the area that the cooling coil is located in eventually turns into a solid block of frost and ice. It becomes impossible for air to be drawn across the cold coil, cooled and blown into the fresh food compartment. The result is a rising temperature in the fresh food compartment - and eventually in the freezer section, too. Since the fresh food compartment contains the thermostat and the temperature never gets low enough to satisfy it - the compressor runs non-stop. That is, until the defrost timer kicks in to shut it off for 20 minutes or so.

The first thing to do is to manually defrost the freezer by accessing the cooling coil after emptying the contents of the freezer. This can be a pain in the neck to remove racks, shelves, ice maker, etc. to get to the back wall of the freezer, behind which the cooling coil is found. If you expose the cooling coil and it is encased in frost and ice it is a problem with the defrost circuit. If it is not - the fan is suspect. If the fan spins, check for a blocked path between the fan and the fresh food compartment. Defrost by placing a heat source in the freezer or directing the output of a blow dryer at the coil. If you're unable to access the cooling coil, you can simply empty the freezer and defrost it with a heat source. it will take longer to melt all the frost and ice, but it will work.

If it is a defrost circuit problem, you'll need to check voltages and continuity on the defrost terminator & timer and defrost heating element, fans, etc. after completely thawing the ice & frost.

This job isn't a good first time DIY job due to the danger of freezing skin, etc. due to possible exposure to freon in the system and the tight spaces you'll be working in with live voltages. You might want to call a pro after you've defrosted or put up another fixya request if you decide to dig in on your own and need specific help with procedures, locating parts, wiring diagrams, etc.

I hope this was a good starting point to help you decide whether to go forward or not on your own. Good luck!

The refrigerator side is only getting down to 50 degrees. the freezer is down to 0 degree. unit is about 2 yrs. old.


There is likely a problem with the defrost circuit or fan (but could be a low freon charge or other problem). The freezer compartment has the cooling coil with defrost heater and a fan that pulls cold air from the freezer into the fresh food compartment, based on the setting of the thermostat in the fresh food compartment. Before you dig into that, you should vacuum the condensor coil to remove dirt and dust that always collects on it. It that solves it - you're done. Otherwise, continue.

When the defrost heater fails, the area that the coil is in turns into a solid block of frost and ice. It becomes impossible for air to be drawn across the cold coil, cooled and blown into the fresh food compartment. The result is a rising temperature in the fresh food compartment - and eventually in the freezer section, too. Since the fresh food compartment contains the thermostat and the temperature never gets low enough to satisfy it - the compressor runs non-stop. That is, until the defrost timer kicks in to shut it off for 20 minutes or so.

The first thing to do is to manually defrost the freezer by accessing the cooling coil after emptying the contents of the freezer. This can be a pain in the neck to remove racks, shelves, ice maker, etc. to get to the back wall of the freezer, behind which the coil is protected. If you expose the cooling coil and it is encased in frost and ice it is a problem with the defrost circuit. If it is not - the fan is suspect. If the fan spins, check for a blocked path between the fan and the fresh food compartment.

If it is a defrost circuit problem, you'll need to check voltages and continuity on the defrost terminator & timer and defrost heating element, fans, etc. after completely thawing the ice & frost.

Freezer has stuck in defront and stops cooling


Yours has a defrost timer board inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel. The only way to stop this is by replacing the board. Part number 4388932 and here is a view of its location inside the fresh food compartment. Just be sure the power is unplugged while working with board.

The coil of cooling system has problem


It is most likely
1/ Your defrost timer or sensor has failed.
or
2/ Your defrost element has failed.

Your timer or sensor is the cheaper to replace so try that first.

Inside the fresh food compartment look for an opening that will allow you to turn the defrost timer clockwise slowly. When you hear it click the refrigerator should go into defrost. If the timer is bad it will need replaced. Let me know. Below is a photo of timer.
Part number 6
