Question about Amana SXD524VW Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Our amana refrigerator has the freezer on the bottom and the coils keep freezing up and then the refrigerator gets warm. We are told this is a common problem and my husband every week has to take the hair dryer and unfreeze the coils to get the refrigerator to work. What else can we do short of buying a new refrigerator?

I have an Amana "R" Series Bottom Freezer Refrigerator model Bx20RL purchased in 1995. The freezer is working but the refrigerator section is warm. I've cleaned the coils regularly and just did so again....


It is either a defrost timer or limit switch, That's the little clip on device located on top of one of your freezer coils. This is the most common item to die on many newer refrigerators2_bing.gif. It is also pretty inexpensive, and easy to get from Sears or 1stsource parts. In rare cases your defrost heater may go bad, but I haven't had to replace one in a long while.

Freezer not freezing nor ice maker


Is the refrigerator still working? Is there any cold air in the freezer? If your compressor stopped working it would cause the refrigerator to be warm also. I had a problem with my amana refrigerator where the freezer wasn't getting cold enough and it was due to a condenser fan running intermittently. i replaced the fan and was back in business. i would check to make sure both your fan and your compressor are operating...

Kenmore bottom freezer keep freezing up.


just called in a sears technician 150 dollar bill that was an easy fix. he says my bottom freezer kenmore fridge with warm fridge problem was due to the pathway being blocked by ice and garbage which is common with these fridges. he took off cover from the fridge bottom and poured boiling water down to the freezer. try that before you replace any parts or call in a tech. next time im getting a top freezer because the blower is on the top not in the middle with the bottom freezers and thus more problem prone.

Fridge problem


Hi. The most common failure for this make refrigerator is a bad evaporator fan motor. You should feel air coming out of the diffuser in your freezer. If not, either the fan motor is bad or you have alot of frost build up on the evaporator. You would see alot of frost on the back wall of the freezer where the evaporator coil is located. If this is the case, most likely the defrost bimetal thermostat. But if no frost, the evaporator fan motor is most common and likely to be your problem. Visit me on Ebay username: themackshack. Good luck! Mack
