Question about Amana ARB8057CSL Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a Sears 22 cu ft bottom freezer unit -- about 5+ years old. It has been working fine until probably yesterday (or so my family tells me). The freezer unit has thawed out. The compressor tries to swithch on but just buzzes and no real cold air coming in to freezer. How do I know if the compressor is shot or if it is another problem?

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.

When will there be a s sale on Samsung French door refrigerator


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Sears has a "Friends and Family Night", twice a year. You need a ticket to get. Contact: "Sears Customer Service". Also, Holiday week ends.

You may want to consider a "Sears Outlet (Scratch & Dent) Store". You can save several hundred dollars and get a one year warrantee.

Both Samsung and LG have the highest repair rate.

Also stay away from bottom freezers and units that have either the icemaker or the ice bucket mounted on the door.

Consider: GE, Kenmore, Kitchen Aid, Amada.

Sears Coldspot 17 frostless freezer not defrosting


One reason for the fan running is that it is trying to distribute the air in the compartment. Look at the very rear of the freezer on the bottom and see if the little vents, which allow water to disperse, are not filled with frozen ice. If so, turn off the fridge (unplug it) and use a hair dryer to melt that ice until it is all gone. That will probably fill the condensation pan under the unit and you'll need to empty it.

Kenmore Fridge - Bad Testing Water


Your refrigerator definitely has a water filter. If you have gone 5 years without replacing the filter, you and your family have probably been drinking contaminated water, for some time. Water filters should be replaced every three to six months. On some refrigerators, and in cases of higher water consumption, the filter must be changed every 60 days. Sears sells replacement filter cartridges for Kenmore refrigerators.

The water filter on your refrigerator is located at the front base of the unit, in the grille, below the freezer door. There, you will see a round cap. Turn the cap counter-clockwise, until the handle is vertical.Then, pull it out of the grille. The filter cartridge is attached to the cap. After removing the cap and filter, slide the cap off from the existing filter cartridge. Slide the cap on to a new cartridge, and re-insert with the cap handle in a vertical position. Push it in, firmly. Then, turn the cap clockwise, until the cap handle is horizontal.

Kenmore chest freezer about three or four years old.not cooling


Probably a freon lean and not worth repairing. You can never find the leak in a chest freezer. Recharging will buy a little time but you can never reallly trust it again.

Kenmore 14.8 cft - temperature between 5 and -22 degrees (-15 and -30 C)


Big...this is likely normal. I'm not sure where you're measuring that temp from. If it is the fan outlet, this is possible. The fact that the unit is staying below 5 degrees means that it is within spec. You do have a warranty. Ask Sears to come on in and check it out.

Your 'duty cycle'...that amount of time that the compressor is on should be about 20% of a unit of time...say 25 minutes out of 2 hours. Is that about right? If so, enjoy your ice cream.
