Question about Amana SCRATCH&DENT 25 Cu. Ft. French Doors Refrigerator (BLACK COLOR) AFD2535DEB
Our 4 year old Amana appears to have the same problem.
The refrigerator and freezer section stopped cooling and the inside
temperature reached 60 degrees by the time we found out refrigerator
had stopped working.
There was no power failure!
The refrigerator was on, the lights all worked, the LED display was not
showing numbers. The display showed just a dash on each setting.
Also, trying to change the settings did not work. The controls did nothing.
They displays both kept showing a dash. The pump was not coming on.
We lost lots of food.
I unplugged the refrigerator and plugged it back in. The refrigerator
then showed numbers, the pump started, and the controls worked
again. It's like I rebooted the refrigerator's computer. The refrigerator
got cold again, The freezer was back to working.
BUT, is my refrigerator reliable?
I have scheduled a visit from the Amana repair center. We'll see what they have to say.
After scheduling a vist through Amana's 800 number for Saturday
morning on Friday night, I get a call on Saturday.
They say we don't do work on Saturday. Now isn't that great service?
My honest answer is that I have seen this before and in most cases the board works properly after the reboot.
Although you may not have lost power, you may have gotten a voltage spike. I would cancel the service man coming out, (I am a working service man myself) he probably will give you two options. #1 Wait to see if this happens again and if it does happen again soon, the board should be replaced. #2 replace the board now.
My suggestion is to soon go purchase a surge suppressor to plug into. This does not need to be a power strip style. A good quality suppressor that only has one or 2 plug in's or plugs directly into the wall receptacle should do fine. Your refrigerators maximum amp draw is listed on the model # sticker inside the refrigerator compartment.
I hope this helps, supertechks
