Get behind it and clean out the cobwebs. A clean coil is a more efficient coil. You don't need to call anybody to clean it up.

yes compressor runs and shuts off every 8 - 10 hours for a half hour for defrost system mode. but ur hot left side may be a sign of issues needing to be addressed>


FRIDGE COILS or door walls SEEM VERY HOT:

The condenser coils do get hot. They can even be to hot to comfortably touch and this is normal.

The refrigerator should not run constantly but shut off with each defrost cycle.

Running constantly and never cycling off can indicate a cooling problem.

One thing to try is to wait till it has been running a few minutes then open the door and turn your cycling thermostat towards the off position. It should cycle off before getting to the off position on the dial.

If it does not cycle off then it's not getting cold enough to satisfy the thermostat. This is likely the reason the refrigerator runs all the time.

A thermometer in a glass of water can be used to check the temperatures in the refrigerator section.

You can check that all fans are running.

My figidaire freezer fans runs almost all the time


Your problem could be as simple as dirty condenser coils or a burned out condenser fan. These components are on the bottom of the refrigerator and removing a couple of panels should give you access to them. Clean dust and dirt off the coils and check to see if the bottom fan is running when the refrigerator is running.

You'd be surprised how often this simple fix will get you back up and running. Dirty coils make the refrigerant system VERY inefficient, sometimes to the point that the refrigerator has to run almost constantly to acheive the desire temperatures inside the refrigerator.

Your cooling coils are completely clogged with dust and I'd check your refrigerant level. Clean first then keep an eye on it for two days then if no improvement in lowered temp call in a repairman for a refrigerant top off. $$$$ Expect over $150.00 plus!

Try an air tank with a long blow off tip to clean the dust off the coils. No simple task!

Amana bottom freezer refrig runs at maximum coolness


Thanks for your inquiry. I think I may have fixed it. I unpluged it and took everything out of the refrigerator and freezer, cleaned it thoroughly inside and out and unscrewed the back wall inside the freezer. There was a huge ice buildup on the coils so I let it sit for 12 hours like a defrost. I turned it back on and it seems to be working fine. It is not running constantly and is maintaining about 5 degrees below. If this doesn't stay working, I guess I have to call a repairman.

If its as warm as you say and the refrigerant is R134A his estimate of the pressure (4# is low for 38'F) is correct.

As for the leak I can only assume he sees something to make him believe its the evaporator.

As to the warranty (if its under 1 year it should all be covered. If its 2-5th year just the compressor is covered on some manufacturers others its the sealed system meaning leaks also).

And as far as $400.00? That's not out of line from my experience (limited by 30 years of doing this) I believe from what you have said about this fellow he knows his stuff and what it costs him to do business and that he will be around to perform your next service you need also. A rare thing to see these days. Even with hard times everywhere a business still has to make a profit and cover over head. Unless your AIG, GM, or Chrysler.
