Question about Amana ARB2257CSR Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a model ARB2257CSR Amana frige (freezer on bottom) and the freezer is not working I think. there is a sound that comes on and off like the motor maybe is trying to come on... the sound comes from the bottom of the frige in the back where the fan is . The fan is on and cold air is blowing into the frige. my bread and bananas are not frozen anymore but my meat is. so I´m afraid its gone.

    thanks Mike. it worked at that time, a year later we had more problems and had a new compressor put in and today something else is wrong with it. It is on and sounds normal but is not cooling at all, then when it shuts off there is this screeching noise that comes from it for about half a minute or so.

Sounds like the overload/relay is going out . If the noise is a " click " , replace the o/relay after checking the 3 terminals on compressor for continuity and each terminal to ground ( copper tubing ) .

Amana bottom freezer/frige not cooling. Clicking sound then buzzing sounds and clicks off. Compressor hot. Hear it running but no cooling.


Solution to this recyle-Amana is to scrap it and get a "GOOD" brand!!
The condenser/compressor is made by Tucumsah, excuse the spelling, but you know what I'm saying.

I have an amana bottom freeze abb2227dew the freezer is working fine but the frige isn't cold?


check the regulator or thermostat for the fridge and set it well.
if it is well set then your compressor is losing compression.

I have a Humming noise coming from the rear of the refrigerator sounds like the Ice tray is filling, but it is not that. We discovered that the food in the freezer is melting, now we're afraid the top half...


Yes eventually, the top will warm up too.  Based on the sounds your compressor is probably going bad.  Check the warranty on your fridge.   Your problem is in the sealed system, and that usually carries a longer warranty than the rest of the fridge.

My amana frige leaks at the bottom, it is a bottom freezer frige, I moved it lately because I am laying laminate floor, any solutions?


In your shuffling of the refrigerator you may have knocked the condensate drain away from the pain near the compressor that evaporates the water back into the air inside your home. Or you may have the refrigerator leaning in a way that the water pools up near the condensate drain pipe beginning in the rear of the freezer and has frozen over and causing the water to drain over the condensate collector pan behind the rear wall of the freezer.

Amana fridge door on wrong side


Generally, doors can be swapped side to side.  Look for some kind of plate where the hinges would be on the other side of the box from where you've got the door mounted now.  It may be covered with a plastic piece.  If you find it, you're in business.  A small socket set is all it usually takes.  Get help holding the door in position as you do the work.  Doors are heavy.

Amana bottom freezer refrigerator


could be the cause. check by putting a slip of paper between seal and cabinet and with door shut, check paper is gripped all round the door. if it is not, try warming the seal with a hairdryer in the faulty place and pulling the seal out gently. many of these seals are foamed in and impossible or v dificult to replace. check also that the hinges are not worn
