SOURCE: Defrost timer

The above URL will take you to an exploded view of the controls. Look at number 23 which will be located behind toe plate below door on the left side. That is the defrost timer. Rotate the clutch head screw Clockwise SLOWLY until you hear a loud click. That is the defrost timer starting the defrost. If the unit restarts after 18-22 minutes and defrost does not take place you problem is most likely the defrost thermostat.

I think the best way to answer your question is to provide you with an Amana=> ASD2620HRB Parts List If you do not have Adobe Reader Click=> HERE Once you have the PDF open I want you to go to pages 22 and 36. The defrost heater is installed just like the parts/evaporator, clips are shown where the defrost has to mounts it to your evaporator. Then go to page 36 and bottom right corner of the diagram shows two different colors of wires. The brown wire makes a loop through one side of the defrost thermostat. The orange wire connects to the other side of the defrost thermostat and the orange wire also connects to the defrost heater. Please ask should you have questions and please rate my solution, Thanks Sea Breeze

Can not initiate defrost on amana asd2620rb

in the freshfood area there is your control assembly..the defrost timer located in there..there will be a round hole with a knob that has a slot in it..insert your screwdriver and turn clockwise until you hear refrigerator go off. this will put you into a defrost...if all is well and working ok..just replace timer....

if it goes into a defrost ,but will not come on..the defrost thermostat is most likely bad..these refrigerators have bad defrost t/s for some reason, but not always is it this fault...check your heater with a multi-meter and if okay...bypass the defrost thermostat..if its bad...this will let the heater come not leave this circuit bypassed for any reason..if is a safety feature and will let the heater stay as long as its in defrost.....just replace this part ad all will be ok

My Amana refrigerator defrost timer is supposed to cycle every eight hours. Instead it takes about 14 hours to cycle around back to the defrost mode. The defrost mode does last for the proper 20 minutes....

Relax, some people exagerate was all I was saying.
Anyhow, go to a good parts store and ask for a Supco EDT (Electronic Defrost Timer) replacement as they are more reliable and not much difference in price.

Stuck in defrost mode after changing timer and thermostat

Amana adaptive defrost:

Press refrigerator light switch five times in six seconds to initiate defrost cycle. Pressing five more times within six seconds will cancel defrost and go straight into the run mode. Similar operation on both bottom mount and SxS refrigerators. After the defrost terminator/thermostat opens, six minutes of dwell time occurs before the compressor and condenser fan motor will operate. After defrost terminator/thermostat open, 10 minutes of dwell time occurs before the evaporator fan motor will operate.
