Your refrigerator is fine.. This is common with some refrigerators. The self defroster system blows the moister out from down below. If you have a light colored floor the moister will attack areas especially worn spots. The appliance's mounting feet is one are that wears first. The stains will travel as time goes by. Nothing much can be done to remove the stains for I have tried many different tactics in the past 20 years

I have an Amana p tac unit model pth153e35axxxaa and I need to know how to wire up the inside fan motor The fan has 2 Brown's, white, red, and black. If anyone knows where these wires go please help

FIRST turn off power to the unit!! The two brown wires go to the capacitor, white goes to power from one side of a 2 pole breaker. Black is high speed red is low speed, only use one of these. [if both are used at the same time motor will melt] Choose which speed you want, connect it to power from the other side of the 2 pole breaker Tape the end of the unused wire.

Amana Fridge with bottom Freezer. Freezer is working fine, but the fridge is warm. What can I do?

It most likely means that the air vent from the freezing unit has stuck in the closed position which causes the fridge to not be any where near as cool as it should be and if it is too cold then the vent is stuck in the open position. The vent is controlled by a small sync motor and either the motor has become faulty, the control module is faulty or the vent is iced up, which can be caused by putting too many hot items in the fridge so the steam condenses and freezes the vent in position and then the motor cannot open or close it causing it and / or the control module to become faulty. Other times it is just old age that causes the motor and / or the control module to fail.

In stand alone fridges the answer could be that the cooling panel at the rear is dirty and needs thoroughly dusting / cleaning / unblocking and checking that there is enough space around it to cool properly and that it is not near any heat sources such as an oven, air vent, microwave exhaust, etc.. It could also be caused by a problem that has resulted in a loss of the refrigerant gas and will need regassing by a service engineer. Also check that the thermostat is working correctly, turn it up and the fridge compressor motor should kick in, turn it down and the motor should turn off. Also make sure that the fridge is not iced up, or overloaded, so cool air cannot circulate inside it. Best call a service engineer asap.

LG1812CW Walks During Spin Cycle

The rear 2 legs are fixed. The front 2 are adjustable. There are lock nuts to prevent the adjustment from coming loose. The front legs are to be adjusted to the minimum. While not running if the machine rocks, continue the adjustment. For few clothes there is a half load switch; best the read the manual well before anything. Well if the walking continues, check the rear for any shocks or springs that may hv fallen off during transport. Plug off the wall socket first.

Try to uplug it for a few minutes then plug back in. Let us know if the compressor and fan kick on then otherwise we'll have to give more advice on where to look, etc.
