No appliance manufacturer recommends the use of aftermarket surge protectors. They pull high amperage at start and exceeds most protectors. You can have a whole house surge protector installed in your main panel by a licensed electrician. They are the only method that works when serious surges happen.

Frost is building up in bottom freezer. Appliance is running nonstop. I believe that the freezer drawer has been shut completely. Foods in refrigerator section are fine; foods in freezer section are...

Frost can build up for multiple reasons. Most common is the start os an iceblock. Other reasons can include condensation from door being left open or opening too much. It can also happen from backsplash from the inlet tube for the ice maker. If the fridge is running non stop. It sounds like the ice block is forming and the temps are not getting to the program temps. If at factory setting the freezer should be at or around 0 degrees and fridge should be between 42 and 48 degrees. Has the fridge shutdown at all to go into defrost? The defrost timer may have went out and is causing an iceblock. If there is an ice block always change bimetal/ defrost thermostat.

If you need any further assistacne please feel free to comment me.

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.

We have a amana refrigerator that is 6 years old and i was told the compresser went out. Should that happen to a 6 yr fridge?

The compressor is an electrical device and then can fail at any time....there is no reliable way to totally predict the life span... power surges and power conditioning can also affect the reliability of the device....

Have a amana with bottom freezer. Everything

Keep in mind, your fridge 100% depends on the freezer. You have a defrost system problem most likely(see if icying up in the back wall of freezer). And if so, most likely defrost thermostat went bad.

Our power went out for a few minutes yesterdat and since then our refrigerator and freezer aren't working. What could cause this problem? -Thanks.

first of all I would check the outlet where your fridge is plugged in to make sure the power surge didn't affect it. maybe plug in a lamp. if it is ok, and the fridge will not start at all, i would check the relay/overload on the compressor as it may have been compromised by the power surge when the power came back on. these components start the compressor which in turn starts the cooling/freezing of your fridge. hope this helps.

Fridge and freezer stopped working.Power still on (light on in fridge). Digital control for fridge and freezer shows straight line no numbers. Any suggestions?

The double dashes in your display are for one of two reasons. First situation would be would be "you turned the unit off". Press the up arrow on the feezer or fresh food control until a 4 is in each display. Second, if the control is locked out, the board has been scrambled or failed possibly from a power surge. Unplug unit for 30 seconds, and plug it back in and try to set control's for "4". If controls are still locked out, the board (12868513) needs to be replaced.

My Amana refrigerator freezer is totally off.

You may have lost your fridge. Try This.
  1. Unplug.
  2. Take a table lamp & plug into socket where you had fridge plugged in. Turn light on. If it lights. Fridge is trouble.
  3. If no light check another socket make sure light works if it works your socket, wiring or breaker is your problem.

  1. If fridge check wire to & from fridge make sure it is unplugged feel & look for crimp or gap in wire.
  2. Check connection to fridge some have a reset button or overload fuse. Reset or replace if you find one.

  1. If socket try another socket see if fridge runs.
  2. If it runs you will have to troubleshoot house wiring.
Contact me if you need more help. Good Luck!
