Question about Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water

1 Answer

My old model (SSD522SB) Amana refrigerator-freezer side by side in located in a contained we use for storage. I one stored panels painted with linseed oil in the container and the smell stayed for some time even though we removed the panel. But we then put the amana in the contained and the freezer began to smell of linseed oil and all the plastic bags (the food inside--not sure) smelled terribly. This model has an automatic ice maker which is not connected. Could the smells be coming in throu there? Is there an air intake?

    I erred in posing my problem as a front loading ice maker and water in the door. There is an automatic ice maker which delivers ice or crushed. The water intake is in back of the refrigerator.

    I can see there is some type of filter in back of a grill at the bottom of the freezer side. Does this change any of your advice? It is still a mystery to me how all the remnants of smell, very mild outside the frig, are concentrated in the freezer.

No That would not be where the smell is comming from.
I it is pluged up and running the smell could be comming from the the door water and ice filler, if it has one...If it does not have one you may need to defrost the entire refridgerator, clean and sterialize the inside and that should get rid of your smell problem.

    You should change the filter it probbly had mold &/or mildew in it and is causing the smell.

Clean coil light is on


The coil they are referring to is the condenser coil, which will be located underneath, and can be accessed either by removing the toe plate in front, or by pulling the cabinet from the wall, removing the machine compartment cover by removing the screws. In both cases its best to use an appliance brush or lint brush available at any hardware store, these brushes are about 2' in length, and contain black plastic bristles, and of course, unplug your refrigerator before doing any maintenance. Remove the dust and pet hair from the condenser with the brush, then vacuum the brush clean and repeat.

Water on the floor under the freezer side of unit


It happens to all those old refrigerators. There is a shield separating the drip container and freezer through a small hole. Check if it is blocked. This won't do much of the work and may not be stopped even if you do something. If you can, have a new refrigerator.

You can clean off using a green scrubbing bad and some brasso all at wall mart then buy a can of spraypanit and spray it with food grade paint by Krylon paints also at wal mart. The paint will seal it and keep it from comming off.

Amana Fridge that won't keep cooling.


Inside your refrigerator fresh food compartment and behind the control panel is a Adaptive Defrost Board this could be the problem or the start relay and start capacitor located on the compressor. I would unplug and examine the defrost board first to see if it looks abnormal. Second I would replace the parts mentioned at the compressor if the Adaptive Defrost Board looks ok. Below is a link that you enter your model number in the model parts search feature. The part number for the Adaptive Defrost is 611005988
Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
