Freezer door was left open, now after one day freezer is not cold


you can unplug it and let it defrost on it's own or you can melt out the air ducts,you'll have to shut down the freezer,remove the shelves and remove the inside back wall of the freezer section and melt out all the ice in the right hand corner and any ice on the coil.when melting out the air ducts be careful not to damage any of the plastic or styrofoam on or inside the wall,heat up the area with a hair dryer for a couple of minutes and then move to the coil,after a minute or two go back the the air duct,when you think it's melted out enough turn the freezer back on and with your hand check to make sure the air is blowing into the fridge side,if you can feel air blowing then your all set,if there's any ice left in there the defrost will take care of it.if you have another fridge to put your food in or if the food can't be refrozen i'd just unplug it and let it melt out on it's own over night and you can clean it out while everything is out of it.let me know how you make out and good luck,hope you didn't loose that much food

I have an Amana SWD26v. last week it stopped cooling the freezer and refrigerator the fans run but it will not get cold


go inside the freezer side an see if you have ice on the back wall panel,(((inside of the frezeer side)))
if you do then you have a ice blockage on the coil that prevents the air from traveling tru it an cooling ur fridge side
that is the problem, now..... lets see why that is happening...!


empty the freezer side, remove the screws careful,

find the defrost timer,normally on the refrigerator side , there is a little hole by the control panel,you will see a small hole about the size of a pen find a small screw driver and , stick a small screw driver in the hole an turn it i think is counter clockwise till it stops at the line mark you will hear a click if you miss it do it again wait like 10 mins an see if the ice melts on the coil.
if the ice starts to melt, you have a ((bad an stuck defrost timer)),

if it doesn't melt then you have a problem with the heater an therminator aronund the coil.... you have to do a volt test the components.
NOTE if you have to replace the advance timer is easy, but when you do it , turn the timer to something like the 11 o clock mark, right before the line, that would allow the machine to go into defrost cycle right after you put it back together, and melt the ice, since model are different, u want to be safe anyway, let it cycle that will clear any ice on the coil an should work ok after that!.. the big mistake some ppl do is to let ir run while they go to the part store, they come back an install the timer, but by the time they are done, they have more ice on the coil plus the ice that builts from the cycles that they have more ice than what the cycle can clear an then they have othr problems like water dripping inside the pan an eventually more ice up coil!!

post some feed back thanks

I have an amana side by side refrigerator. The ice is building up


There is a drain hole under all of that ice that got clogged at some point and it started building up ice in that area.  The water that is freezing is coming from the defrost cycle which melts all of the ice buildup on the evaporator coil.  First melt the ice.  Then unclog the drain hole.  The drain goes to a tray in back near the compressor, where the heat from the compressor evaporates the water.

Front Door Amana Computer Door Pad Changes on its Own? Amana ARS2667BW


it could be the power outage. electronics are very sensitive, it could be damage by just static electricity alone. i suggest that you can plug it to an automatic voltage regulator with a time delay so that it could save your unit after a power interruption.

regarding your problem now, it could just be a touch pad problem. maybe that is the only part fried by the surges. i assume the refrigerator cooling performance was not affected. only the touchpad panel is affected.

tnx 4 using fixya,

I don't have this particular model, but had a similar problem. Check the flap to the ice chute. If it's not sealing properly it would allow warm air into the freezer and melt the ice.

I had to call for service.
