Freezer periodically thaws then refreezes

I have a 7 yr old Amana BG 29 T W P1198516WW bottom freezer refrigerator which works fine for most of the time but recently will periodically warm up causing the ice in the freezer to melt and then will refreeze. Is it an easy fix andi if so where do I get the part

Sounds like it has either a bad compressor relay or if the brand name of the compressor is Tecumseh, it will need to be retrofit to a more reliable longer lasting Embraco compressor.

SOURCE: really loud humming noise and freezer is defrosting/refreezing

Connect only to an outlet, do not use an extension cord. If you really must use an extension, make sure it is capable of handling the load. Should be a 16ga minimum, 14ga preferred and not exceed 25 feet. If you are having this issue while plugged directly into an outlet, perhaps the circuit is weak, and you should try another outlet.

Other possibilities include: a short-cycling thermostat. This is when the thermostat tries to kick the compressor back on too soon after the last running. OR Your compressor is on the way out. Sometimes the installation of a "Hard Start Kit" will aid a failing or stubborn compressor. If you've eliminated all else, consult an appliance servicer to buy the hard start kit. They typically are a universal fit, and come with instructions.

Souns like the logic board // computer is at fault of the fan is running and both thermostats have been replaced. Call back your repair man and tell him that he hasn't completed the job yet!

You have to remove the bottom drawer, remove one of the drawer slider mounts on the freezer wall, and remove the rear panel. If yours has an ice maker you will have to disconnect it and remove it also. Unplug it so the water valve does not dump water on you while you are working inside.

Amana refrigerator A4TXNWFWWO1 >top freezer, bottom fridge it's only 10 months old refrigerator won't get colder than 55 degrees freezer is working


There is something plugging the drain line in the freezer which carries water from the defrost cycle to your evap drain tray in the bottom of your fridge. The water has built up and froze plugging the flow of air from freezer to fridge.... find the line and unplug it and let fridge sit and thaw overnight and then some more.

Our Amana French door ice maker is clogged with ice chunk about 2-in x 6-in and we can't pull it out. The area is too small to pour hot water in onto the ice. Any suggestions?


Good day,
What you have described sounds like a defective water valve on the back bottom rear of the machine. It will need to be replaced.

Although awkward, the best way is to remove the ice maker completely and let it air dry, while the valve gets changed.

The above diagnosis is based on the fact the freezer is maintaining it's normal temperature. If for some reason the freezer thaws and then refreezes that problem would need to be addressed first.

My Amana refrigerator with bottom freezer thaws intermittently, every 5 days or so. When it thaws there is a buzzing sound from the fridge that lasts a couple of seconds and recurs every 30-60 seconds....


The techs are correct. The sound you hear is the compressor trying to start.
Most appliance parts companies sell what is called a
start kit or hard start kit. I personally use the "ic13".
It has given me the best results but it's a **** shoot.
If you feel like gambling, try it. As well,
It is very important that you run the machine with the back cover in place. It ducts the air to the condenser . Very important. Make sure the condensor coils are clean, as well.

Freezer thaws then refreezes


I was going to suggest that maybe it is a self defrost issue not shutting off when it should but sine you mentioned this knob, it suggests a thermostat out of calibration - I can rule out circuit problems since you can manually turn on compressor by turning the knob to a cooler position - you will need to have it serviced and change the thermostat which is not cycling whne it's supposed to.

ALSO - do not refreeze foods in your freezer that have thawed ! Throw them away !!! Normal freezer temps should not be warmer than 10F, the normal temps are 0F, and optimal recommended temp -10F (for hard ice cream) and to allow better recovery in case of power failures.

Refrigerator section no warmer tan 40F.....optimal recommended 34F.
