If there is frost build up on rear wall of freezer section the unit is not going through defrost cycle which builds up frost on evaporator and restricts cold air flow to the fresh food section. one of three things are bad. defrost heater, defrost thermostat or defrost timer. if no frost on rear wall you might be low of freon.

I have some problem with my AMANA BX20ML Model REFIGERATOR


You may have a bad condensor fan motor or paper may have gotten pulled under the fridge and jammed the fan blade. The energy switch will not help with cooling it only controls exterior moisture.

If by the center bar, you mean the divider between the freezer and fridge sections, then the heat you're feeling is the built-in condensation heaters designed to keep moisture from forming on the exterior of the unit. These heaters also help to keep moisture from freezing on the inside of the door edges and in between the sides of the unit as well.

It's a normal function of modern, frost-free refridgerators, Some brands/models have an "energy saver" switch inside the fridge section that you can use to turn off the extra edge heaters, if you aren't experiencing excessive condensation forming on the outside of the unit.

Not all the heaters can be turned off even with fridges that have an energy saver switch, as the manufacturers engineer/determine where and how many edge heaters are needed to get the best performance out of their products.

With an energy saver switch, you turn it "ON" to actually turn off the surface heaters, and turn it "OFF" to have the heaters run constantly. Thus having it "ON" saves the energy that would be used to keep the heaters very warm. Some manufacturers have added electronic sensors to regulate these heaters, but not all makers have done this.

You should also clean the coils to help the fridge run better. As far as getting to the coils to clean them, if you have a long narrow crevice tool with your vaccum, you can try to use that to get underneath the unit to carefully get the dust out. I found that if you move the unit out where you can get to all sides, makes it easier to remove any dust on the back and underside of the fridge. Don't foget that you might have to remove the lower, back access panel to get at the compressor/coil assembly.

Just unplug the fridge first to keep from ruining your spouse's vaccum tool in the cooling fan blade, like I did once and never he-ad the end of it! (Not to mention the noise it makes - brought her running to see what I was doing!)

If that isn't possible, you can always use the blower end of a vaccum to blow out the coils, but it's a messy proposition at best. I've used a swiffer taped with some duct tape onto a long, thin dowel to get quite a bit of the dust the vac couldn't $uck out - I prefer that to blowing dust out as it's less messy.

Provided your fridge and freezer are cooling properly, you shouldn't have any issues with the warm center compartment divider causing you any problems.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Amana Refrigerator cooling problem


The energy saver switch doesn't really save you anything, all that does is turn off the mullion heater circuit which if you really add up the pennies on your electric bill, might save you enough in one year to cash in for a bite size snickers bar... leave that off. Replace the operating thermostat (freezer thermostat) to correct this problem. If you're concerned with being green, after you replace the thermostat, turn on the energy saver and see if this makes any difference, it shouldn't in operating temperatures. Wiring and diagrams are usually available at sears, or by visiting searspartsdirect.com.

Fridge not getting cold enough


The cold from the freezer is piped up to the refrigerator and if that tube gets clogged with frost or ice it will not be able to blow to the cold air into the refrigerator area. I took everything out, unpluged the unit for about 6 hours, till all the frost from the freezer was gone, wiped up all moisture and turn it back on. It worked!

The divder between my frig and freezer is also hot


This is normal. Modern frost free fridges have heaters built into the front edge of the cabinet to help keep the accumulation of surface condensation and excessive ice build up on the door edges inside the freezer and fridge.

It is nothing to worry about, but you might have an energy saver switch inside the fridge section that you can turn "on" to turn OFF the heaters (energy saver means the power using heaters would be OFF when the energy saver is "on", turning it "off" means the heaters are ON.

But not all fridges have a switch to turn off the heaters, so don't worry, just accept it and don't buy a new fridge until you need to.

Hope that helps, best regards!

42'' monogram getting very hot between doors and in unit above


This is typical for frost-free refridgerators/freezers. In order to keep ice from buiding up on the interior walls of the freezer section, the manufacturer installs electric defrosting elements and extra "warming" elements in the outer edges of the cabinet, normally around the door openings to help mitigate any frost/ice build up and surface condensation that typically occurs on the exterior surfaces as the doors are opened and closed frequently.

These edge warmers stay very warm to keep ice and condensation from accumulating and will become VERY very warm (hot) when the fridge/freezer is in the once a day defrost cycle.

Unless you have an energy saver switch (GE trademark) inside the fridge section, which you can turn off, there is no way to disable these added elements. If you find that you're getting ice building up in the freezer, you'll need to turn off the energy saver switch to resolve that issue.

Energy Saver switch "ON" means these elements are off, while having the ES switch "OFF" means those heaters are running all the time and costing you more in energy consumption

Does not stop cooling down


Door edges being warm is caused by what is called mullion heaters that operate to prevent humidity from condensing at these points.
Some refrigerators have an energy saver switch. Turn this switch if you have one to the energy saving position when the humidity is low. Is anything freezing in the refrigerator? If so setting the controls to a little higher setting may solve your problem.
