We have an older Amana freezer on top fridge. It is set on the lowest cold setting but in some areas of the refrigerator things are freezing. Also there is an energy saver switch --which is "ON"-- left or right.

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...

You will need to check the=> 67003410 Damper Control If it is not working properly or blocked by ice from the freezer no mater what setting you choose it is going to get too cold or if closed too hot. Here is a link to how to test the auto damper=> HERE Not sure what the banging is caused by unless the fans are hitting their housings or ice formed around or near the fan blades, Can you tell me where the banging is coming from like freezer or below the refrigerator in the compressor area?

Refrigerator side too cold


refrigerators only have one cooling system and that is for the freezer. The fridge part is cooled by sending a portion of the air from the freezer to the fridge. your fridge thermostat controls a fan that turns on and off as needed. first step is to make sure this is working, and not stuck on. turn your fridge to a somewhat warm no and open the door for a few minutes to allow the cold air out then check and see see if it gets very cold again within say an hour. if it does your fan is always on and you need to repair it. if that is working then you have to play with both freezer and fridge settings. best thing is to get a cheap thermometer and check your freezer temp. it should be around 0 to -5f if it is colder than that frigid air blowing into your fridge too cool the whole area will freeze anything close to the vent. once you have your freezer set then start adjusting your fridge. personally I have mine set at 34f knowing that some things on the top shelf will freeze. but I like my cola's COLD. so I put things like butter that are harder to freeze at that level. but if you don't want anything to freeze then a temp of 37 -39f is correct for your fridge. so it comes down to freezer temp, the amount of time the fan is on, and proximity to the vent. good luck

Ice maker not working. refrigerator is freezing everything. seems to run all the time.Help!!!!!! It is an Amana about 10 yrs old.


if you have the settings correct then the cold control(ref setting) is bad. but some older models use a baffling system which confuse some people. the freezer settind turned to the lowest setting make you fridge colder. when you put the freezer on the highest setting it allows less airflow. which in turn keeps ref warmer.

Temperature too cold even when on lowest


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Produce freezing


I had the same problem when one of my kids changed the setting of the chef's pantry (full-width drawer) to higher setting and everything started freezing. The setting should be at "lowest setting". Give it a try. deborah.
