Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Amana fridge side x side SKD22S2L. The Door frames are really "Hot" mainly the center frame on the side by side. I cleaned the evaporator coils and seamed to help a little but still getting hot.


It's usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.

Your drain is clogged. Every time it defrosts the water from the defrost should drain out to a catch basin under the ice box. That drain is clogged. You need to access the drain and clear it.

Clean coil light is on


The coil they are referring to is the condenser coil, which will be located underneath, and can be accessed either by removing the toe plate in front, or by pulling the cabinet from the wall, removing the machine compartment cover by removing the screws. In both cases its best to use an appliance brush or lint brush available at any hardware store, these brushes are about 2' in length, and contain black plastic bristles, and of course, unplug your refrigerator before doing any maintenance. Remove the dust and pet hair from the condenser with the brush, then vacuum the brush clean and repeat.

Freezer & refrigerator are not cooling enough.


there is a couple of things you can try. you can try to defrost the whole unit. it is not always a good idea to turn it up to the max setting. if the inner coils get frozen up it causes the problem you are having.

I have a 10year old Amana 25cu SRV26V side by side and our freezer and food area is not very cold. The freezer side is only 20 degrees. Both sides have been turned up to 7 as high as it can go since...


Hi: It's a sealed system so if you need a recharge it will be expensive. You mentioned that the "air filter" in the back was clean. Do you mean the panel at the bottom of the back of the refrigerator? The coils are on the bottom (parallel to the floor across the bottom) and have to be clean. If you haven't done this; remove the grill and vacuum the coils. It's best to use a coil brush to get to the very back. A refrigerator coil brush is available at Lowes or Home Depot. I use an air compressor to blow them out. Then I have to dust the house. If the coils haven't been cleaned this will cause what you described. I hope this helps, Jeff
