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

1 Answer

Amana Side by Side Refrigerator

The water dispenser was not working last week and the next day 1/2 of the freezer was defrosted and the frig didn't seem to be cooling. I cleaned the coils and the fan and unplugged it for a week. I plugged it back in 24 hours ago and it seems to be cooling however, the water is not dispensing again and it's not making ice.

Ken
Most likely the water line inside the freezer door is frozen( very common problem.. No long term fix out there other than defrosting the line(you did that when you defrosted the whole fridge) the trick is to run the water a lot the first day or so..sensors and motherboard have nothing to do with that..

If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem.
There is a small duct between the freezer and refrigerator side if this is blocked the frig side won't cool.

Amana refrigerator not running but light and water dispenser work


Hi, Remove the front kick plate at the bottom and locate the defrost timer box. You will see a hole and there will be a round switch you can turn. Turn in clock wise and see if the refrigerator starts.
If it starts, the timer needs changed. If it does not starts. locate the cold control (thermostat)
Check continuity on the switch. If it is the on position and the circuit is open, you need to replace it.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Kenmore refrigerator leak


I have an Amana refirgerator with a top freezer and had the same problem. I turned off BOTH the frig and the freezer for 24 hours. That allowed every thing to dry out. It has been running now for a week with no problem.
