Question about Amana ARB2557CW / ARB2557CB / ARB2557CC Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Bottom freezer, I can see condenser behind vents, and the whole thing is freezing over, not allowing the fridge to cool. We used the blow dried to melt the ice and then the fridge cooled and all was fine. Now a week later, the condenser is freezing the vents closed AGAIN. If we take the cover off the back of the fridge, what do we look for? How can we fix this ourselves. Thank you!
There are a few things that it could be. Do you mean the evaparator coil? This would be the coil on the inside of the freezer, the condenser is outside the unit. If the evap. coil is freezing, you could have to much in your freezer blocking air flow. You could also have a evap. fan not running. Check the owner's manual for the location of the defrost timer, it could be bad. The thermostat needs to be checked and set so that it is at a reasonable level. One last thing to check would be the condensate drain. Make sure the drain is not plugged or the line is not plugged. Good luck.
