Question about Amana 14.8 cu. ft. / 419 liter Chest Freezer AQC1526A

Open Question

One of our Amana chest freezers stopped freezing food this week, fortunately we were home and discovered it and nothing went to waste. My wife and I disagree on the age of the freezer and if we should have it repaired or just replace it. How can I tell the age of the freezer by the sticker I find inside? Model C151DW Type C42E-YAZUHO Seriel 930203272 Refrig. R12-8.4oz Thanks to anyone who can help. Tim Crawford

    Hello Tim. If you are using R12, it indicates an old freezer, but what exactly is it doing wrong? Is the compressor not comming on or does it click on and off every few seconds? Very possible it could simply be your thermostat.

SOURCE: freezer compressor running, but no cooling

If the compressor is running and there's no cooling, chances are you have a sealed system leak somewhere. Meaning the machine has lost it's refrigerant charge. Pretty much need a set of gages at this point and start checking for potential leaks.

SOURCE: frozen water on the bottom of my Amana freezer

Your drain line is clogged. Take a small diameter pice of wire and snake out the drain line from inside the freezer.
You may have to access the back rear near the compressor and separate the drain line there and clean it further.

MODEL AFG 5496-C FREEZER WHICH BUTTON SHOULD BE LIT WHEN SWITCHED ON TO FREEZE


Green light means that freezer is connected to the mains/electric

Red means that your freezer has not reached minimum working freezing temperature, this is not good news, something may be wrong with your freezer, get it checked by a competent person.
yellow light means that you have switched the fast freeze button on. This yellow switch allows the freezer to run continuously so that the frozen food you brought home from shopping can freeze up quicker. You must not leave this light on for more than 3 hours. It will cause you to waste a lot of electric and will place a lot of stress on the working component in the fridge.

It appears that the thermostat is not working properly and is taking much too long to turn back on after it disconnects power to the compressor. There is no relay in that unit but maybe a start capacitor on motor that might be checked out also.

My wife and I bought a Kenmore chest freezer (14.8 cubic foot) about 6 weeks ago. It is made by Frigidaire for Sears, and the model number is #253.165.42105, serial # WB94341279. It has been working OK. ...


This is well with in factory specifications. Hot air rises and cold air drops. Because a chest freezer does not have a fan to circulate the air it is normal for the basket to be warmer than the bottom of the freezer. The bottom of the freezer is used for food you want to keep for a longer period of time.What you store in the basket is food you will freeze for a short period of time. Ice cream should not be kept in the basket. As you fill your freezer with food you will find that the temperature will equal out because the frozen food will take up the place of the frozen air which will give you a more stable freezer temperature.
Try your test when you have it full of food.

Freezer stops and start


ice cream is always the last to freeze and a temp of minus -10 degrees is usually required to get it to get hard. if you put the ice cream in the door it will be especially tough to freeze. a good thermometor is a good investment as you can observe the temps. usually ten degrees or 20 degrees is what they run. yes they do cycle on and off as long as they hold temps thats good. the outside of the freezer gets warm because the hot compressed refrigerant is spread through piping near its surface giving up its heat of compression . setting the stat to max will freeze the ice cream eventually but utility bill suffers . good luck
