Question about Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water

2 Answers

I have a 10year old Amana 25cu SRV26V side by side and our freezer and food area is not very cold. The freezer side is only 20 degrees. Both sides have been turned up to 7 as high as it can go since yesterday. The frig seem to continually run. The air filter in the back is clean and there is no frost at the back of the freezer. The seals are good. Could it be our of gas ?

Hi: It's a sealed system so if you need a recharge it will be expensive. You mentioned that the "air filter" in the back was clean. Do you mean the panel at the bottom of the back of the refrigerator? The coils are on the bottom (parallel to the floor across the bottom) and have to be clean. If you haven't done this; remove the grill and vacuum the coils. It's best to use a coil brush to get to the very back. A refrigerator coil brush is available at Lowes or Home Depot. I use an air compressor to blow them out. Then I have to dust the house. If the coils haven't been cleaned this will cause what you described. I hope this helps, Jeff

Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.

First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

Freezer is getting to about o degrees but refrigerator section wont go below 50 this is amana side by side asb2623hrw also changed the defrost timer about a month ago and blew off the coils from underneath...


Check your lower air shutter that lets cold air move from the freezer to the refrigerator's. You may have something blocking the air flow, food, plastic, etc... There should be a dial that opens, and closes the door.

Refrigerator does not get cold - GE side by side


In my GE side-by-side refrigerator (model number GSS20IEMDWW), there is a motor-controlled flapper door between the freezer and fresh food side. Cold air from the freezer side cools the fresh food side when that flapper door is open.

It is located at the top of the fresh food side on the dividing wall between the fresh food side and the freezer. If this is blocked with something (large left-over container, soft drink bottles, etc), it _may_ be enough to prevent sufficient cooling of the fresh food side.

Of course, there may be a more serious problem with the flapper door mechanism or the control unit that signals the flapper door to open/close.

The vegetable and deli drawers may have a small opening (manually controlled with a wheel or a slider of some sort) that connects those drawers to the freezer side, thus explaining how those areas are still functioning as expected.

Freezer won't go below 10 and fridge goes between 40 and 60 degrees


Ensure the condenser is not clogged with dust or other debris.
Ensure the condenser fan (usually found in back) is turning when the fridge is running.
