Warm refrigerator and freezer


May be a bad defrost timer and the evaporater is froze up with ice. Clean dust buildup from the condenser under or behind the unit. Always give the model number

We have an Amana side by side. The freezer door


hi. First of all, finding the model number can be a bit of a challenge. here are the places to look:
  • Inside the refrigerator or freezer, on the upper left or right side wall
  • Behind the lower crisper drawer
  • Behind the lower toe kick-plate
  • On the face frame of the refrigerator body

    Amana model SXD25QA3W. Not cooling. Compressor runs.


    Low on refrigerant which is R 12. EPA has stopped the manufacture of it and it is priced out of sight.
    You have a leak and will need it fixed. Compressor is about $300-400 list. You don't want to go there.
    Good luck but likely 15-17 years old....... New one ???

    The fridge has two doors upper part that is freezer is running well while the lower part is colling real slow


    Hello aman_judge20,Welcome to fixya.
    I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

    You said, your fridge has two doors upper part that is freezer is running well while the lower part is cooling real slow.


    Ready?
    If the freezer is cold and not the fridge, you need to make sure the freezer is not filled to the top and covering the cold air vents and passages usually found in the rear or bottom rear of the freezer!
    If they are blocked or covered with packages the unit will not be able to transfer cold air to and from the fridge!
    Yes, they share the air in most refrigerators!
    It will take some 5- 8 hours for the temperature to fall to the correct number if this was the problem.
    If not then you have a bad control switch, and need a repair service!
    What is the type fridge,
    The model and age?
    Let me know what happens! Ahumdillilah

    Here is an interesting report I just read!

    Repair or replace?

    When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

    It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
    such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

    Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
    in the owner's manual.

    Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
    The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
    how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

    Follow these guidelines:

    When a repair makes sense.

    If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
    paying for a repair makes sense.
    Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
    readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

    When a repair might be a wise choice.

    If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
    it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
    But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
    given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
    Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
    are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
    more efficient than those built before 1993.

    When it pays to replace.

    The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
    Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
    six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

    Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
    of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


    Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

    Thank You, HUUUM
