IS THERE A FROST BUILDUP ON THE BACK WALL OF THE
FREEZER INTERIOR? IF SO, AMANA IS MADE BY MAYTAG
AND THE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DEFROST IS MOST LIKELY SUSPECT. IT IS LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE CONTROL PANEL IN THE REFRIGERATOR SECTION {INSIDE BACK RIGHT CORNER).
THE ENTIRE UPPER PANEL HAS TO BE REMOVED TO GAIN ACCESS. WHERE THE WIRES CONNECT, THERE ARE 2
TERMINALS MARKED TEST. SHORTING THESE TWO TERMINALS WILL ACTIVATE THE DEFROST MODE OF THE CONTROL. IF IT FAILS, REPLACE THE CONTROL.

Hi I have pressed the vacation button on my side by side refrigerator/freezer as we are going away for 8 weeks. The display has lit up but there is no difference in the way the fridge is operating - same...


The settings will reset to a lower settting as the fridge/freezer will not be disturbed . So wait for the fridge to run and shut down and it will continue to run in this low mode to save power but to keep the food in prime condition. The fridge alone will not be shut down.

hello it sounds like the element is faulty, as long as the fan is working, the element switches on when defrost thermostat sensor that the coil is icy up, but if you are not familiar on how to use a multimeter it is hard to know for sure, if you do know how to use a a meter , when the coil ices up and the fan is working check to see if there is power to the element, if there is power the element is faulty, if there is no power then you have a problem with the thermostat

I recently purchased a home. The kitchen has a


Firstly, the thermostats are usually calibrated at one elevation and where the fridge ends up may be above or below that so the number settings on the dial aren't that relevant. You should adjust the thermostat in increments then check the temperature after 24 hours, then adjust again if necessary. The fridge should be as close to 40 degrees F. as possible and the freezer about 26 degrees F. (if memory serves me). The heat you detected is the unit in defrost cycle and should be considered normal if intermittent and a problem if constant. There should be a switch to turn off and on the defrost feature if you determine it's a problem.
I hope this helps you and good luck.

I have an Amanda side by side, the fridge temp


Look in the freezer side for a ice buildup on the back wall.
Ice= defrost parts issue.
Check the fan in the freezer. Is it running?
Not running? Could be a defrost thermostat issue or a bad fan motor.
