Question about Amana DRS2663B Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have an Amana SxS (model DRS2663B) that is about 8 years old. About a week ago, it started making a sound - kind of a buzz coming from the compressor area (or the little box I identified as a Relay/overload with start capacitor) that is attached to side of compressor. It buzzes for about 10 seconds and then does not buzz for 60 seconds or so. Fan is on all the time, does not get cold in refrigerator or freezer. I am not sure how long the warranty is as I cannot find the manual.

You may have a bad relay/overload part number 12555902 runs about $15 but if the compressor is going bad it may not work.If you take the relay/overload off  turn it into your hand and shake it if you it sprinkles out like a pepper shaker go with the OEM part afore mentioned,but if it sounds solid and nothing comes out go with a hard start(SUPCO RC0410 also about $15) it will buy you at least another couple years in which to shop around for a replacement or save the money for a new compressor.You can call Amana to check on the warranty but most only had five years on sealed system.

My refrigerator is six years old and for the past two months is making a loud buzzing noise. The frequency has increased over time. What could it be? It's an Amana side by side model ASD2626HE. Sounds like...


Saw your post a week late but the sound could be the start relay on compressor is weaking or if the water is turned off to ice maker the water control valve will try to fill ice maker if the ice make switch is left on and has no water. I will send a manual shortly, Sea Breeze

Clicking, buzzing, compressor too hot, thawed out


Sounds like the compressor is in thermal overload. Let it cool down completely and meter the starting amperage on start to run. The compressor could be seized or it's windings could be shorted to ground (checking the resistance between the windings terminals on the compressor while unplugged will determine this.).

Amana Dryer won't start


Depending on your interpretation of the 'buzzing' sound compared to mine, I'd say it may be a relay chattering or the motor trying to start up but the windings are beginning to fail. You may want to clean the motor housing from dust etc and make sure that you do that with the power disconnected. Also: with no clothes in teh dryer..try rotating it around and feel for any spots in that rotation that may be binding.. if the drum has excessive restriction while rotating.. the motor may not have enough torque to overcome that and just buzz,,, Hope that helps...

Mwave made loud buzzing noise then didn't heat up anymore


When there's a loud buzz like that, it does not heat, and does not blow the fuse, it is usually a defective magnetron. Did it sound something like someone making a "gurgling" sound into a coffee cup? I think this has a a one-year warranty, with n five-year warranty covering the magnetron.
