SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

SOURCE: Bottom hinge on fridge door broken

Yes, there is supposed to be a plastic bushing/washer under there. Usually 1/8 inch thick. If a dealer is not handy you may cut some out of plastic to put there. Then undo the top hinge, and carefully lift the door off (you might want to empty the shelfs). Put your spacer on the hinge pin, and replace the door and the top hinge.

SOURCE: Admiral model #rswa278a

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

SOURCE: refrigerator door swings open too far; does not

Yes it is a hinge cam that broke. Can be ordered on the GE website. A no pro job to replace. A little patience and time about 30 minutes.

Amica oven door gets so hot that my child has burnt hes hands and needed medical attention


Amica is a European brand, I recommend you contact the company headquarters or a competant local repair shop. Any oven left at a very high temperature for a long period of time gets pretty hot, though, and an eleven month old baby has pretty tender skin.

Amana SXD23V refrigerator leaks water underneath the side where the refrigerator door is evey time I try to get water out of the dispensor. I found a plastic tube on the floor about an inch long then...


I believe your water line or the union nut just behind the kickplate may have come loose. Lets see if we can find a repair kit and get you going again. Depending on where the line is broken or leaking will depend on just how much you will need to do so if leaking at the union nut please disregard removal of door.
WARNING

To avoid risk of electrical shock, severe personal injury or death; disconnect power to unit before servicing, unless

testing requires power. Discharge capacitor through a 10,000 ohm resistor before handling. Wires removed during
disassembly must be placed on the correct terminals to ensure proper grounding and polarization.

sea_breeze_2.png Here are the instructions from the manual below.

1. Open door and remove all storage buckets.

2. Remove toe grille.

NOTE: Shut off water supply before performing Step 3.

Have a bucket ready to catch spillage from tube.

3. Loosen water-tube clamp screw. Loosen plastic

water-tube union nut. Pull water tube away from

union nut and through tube clamp.

4. Remove screw that mounts door closure to top

surface of bottom hinge.

5. Close door.

6. Remove screw holding top hinge cover in place.
Remove top-hinge cover.

7. Unplug wiring harness connectors. Remove ground
screw and ground wire from top hinge.

8. Remove top hinge and hinge bushing. Pull hinge and

bushing off wiring harness.

NOTE: Hinge shim is glued to top of cabinet and must

be left in place.

9. Lift door about 3 inches to bring lower hinge bushing

up, off hinge pin.

10. Set bottom edge of door on protective pad. Remove

hinge pin (with door-closure tab) from bottom hinge

bracket.
11. Reverse procedure to rehang door.

    Need to temporarily move our Whirlpool Gold refrigerator to replace kitchen floor. How do we remove fridge doors so we can get it through the doorway?


    Usually, there are bolts/screws on the hinges. They may be covered with a plastic cap which will snap off. Start with the freezer door. While supporting the door, remove the screws from the hinge and lift to free the door. Now you should have access to the hinge supporting the refrigerator door. Same procedure for refrigerator door. Keep the screws in a safe place so you can reassemble the refrigerator when the kitchen floor is done.

    I need to remove doors to get in kitchen, how do i?


    If you are asking that question, sorry you're not qualified for that job. Seek professional help, or you can screw up your refrigerator big time (read - broken tubing,wiring, misaligned gaskets, twisted hinges, not leveled doors, a few hundred $$$ in repairs).
