Question about Refrigerators

Our amana fridge model # BH2055W, with a botom freezer will not maintain the temperature.A repairman put in more fluid, but that did not solve the problem. It will not get cold enough and does not maintain an even temperature. we are not sure whether it is the temperature contro; or if it is defrosting too often, how can we tell?

CHECK THE FREEZER TEMP FOR ZERO DEGREES. PUT A THERMOMETER IN THE FREEZER THAT WILL MEASURE DOWN TO ZERO DEGREES. LET IT SET OVER NIGHT BEFORE CHECKING. IF THE TEMP IN THE FREEZER IS ZERO OR LOWER, THE SEALED SYSTEM IS O.K. IT IS AN AIR FLOW PROBLEM. ON SOME MODELS, THE AIR TO THE FRESH FOOD COMPARTMENT IS CONTROLLED BY AN ELECTRIC, MOTORIZED AIR DAMPER. IT COULD BE DEFECTIVE, STAYING CLOSED WHEN THE CONTROL CALLS FOR MORE COLD AIR. IF YOUR REFRIGERATOR HAS A DIGITAL CONTROL, THERE IS A SENSOR IN EACH COMPARTMENT TO TELL THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL WHAT THE TEMP IS. THE SENSOR (THERMISTOR) COULD BE BREAKING DOWN, GIVING A FALSE READING. THIS WOULD ACCOUNT FOR THE TEMP VARIATIONS.

IF THE FREEZER IS ALSO WARM, THERE COULD BE A RESTRICTION IN THE SEALED SYSTEM. THERE COULD ALSO BE A PROBLEM WITH THE RELAY ON THE COMPRESSOR, NOT ALLOWING THE COMPRESSOR TO START UP WHEN IT IS NEEDED.

BE SURE THE CONDENSER FAN MOTOR IS RUNNING WITH THE COMPRESSOR AND THE CONDENSER COILS ARE NOT PLUGGED WITH DUST, DIRT OR FOREIGN OBJECTS.

We have an Amana bottom load freezer with fridge on top; the freezer maintains its temperature but the fridge does not. What might the problem be?


Start by checking the circulation fan located in the back of the freezer. You may also want to check to see if the vents in the freezer are clear of debris and ice build up. If the fan is not running, remove the fan motor and test it by applying power directly. If the motor runs with power applied directly then you may need a thermostat.

Amana fridge model number Arb1914cw is not cooling. Freezer is working fine


Bottom freezer fridges are especially susceptible to
  1. Dust build up on the condenser coil that impedes heat transfer to the outside from inside the box
    • Remove the (bottom) footplate by grasping outside edges and pulling/levering out and popping it free.
    • Use vac crevice attachment and coil brush to clean away all dust from the coil and foot plate.
    • Replace plate and allow 24 hours for inside temp to stabilize.
    • Adjust top temp setting if needed to maintain safe temp level.
    • Repeat semianually or annually as scheduled maintenance--depending on the dustiness is fridge's location.
  2. Airflow blockage through the crispers and meat keepers.
    • Remove crispers and meat keeper as well as glass cover shelf.
    • Find cooling passages between crispers and at midline of meat keeper.
    • Remove any buildup of air blocking debris.
    • Wipe up fridge box floor beneath meat keeper.
    • Reinstall glass shelf, meat keeper, and crispers.
    • Check perodically for poor temperature/moisture keeping in crispers and for water pooling on fridge box floor as signs of blocked air flow through criispers and meat keepers.

My Amana 26 cu ft side by side quit cooling entirely in the freezer and the refrigerator. Is it worth it to get a repairman or should we just get a new frig. This one is 6 years old


I suggest get help with repairman.6 year old is not very old.Refrigerators have life more then 8 to 10 years.The problem can be temperature not set properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is getting leaked out. These are basic possibilities which first need to be checked. But if these possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then its weak compressor issue.

Amana BH2055W


Well, first check your compressor current ( you can check current draws by using clamp ampere). Compare the reading with your owner manual. If they are quite lot difference : your compressor is dead or relay is not work or your cable is loosen due to your previous activity.
