Question about Refrigerators
2 year old Amana bottom freezer keeps icing up on back wall of freezer and wont stay cold enough for ice cream and such but is cold enough to keep ice.... I have thoroughly defrosted and seemed to work for month or so but started icing up again and not keeping cold enough again!
Hello ghilitho, what you are having is an issue with the defrost cycle. There are 3 parts to this, heater, thermosat,and timer. Sometimes on the newer units the timer is the electronic control. What you are seeing is after you defrost the unit, it works for a time, this is because the evap fan pushes the air thru the unit. With the evap coil froze solid, the cooling drops. You will need a ohm meter to check the heater and thermosat, the heater & thermosat should show to be closed. Also make sure if this unit has a over heat thermosat that it is closed. It may have open up. If all this is good, then the timer is the issue. Hope this helps
