The only thing that keeps the ice cold is the ice itself. If the icemaker isn't making ice fast enough then the ice will melt before more ice drops to keep it cold. In other words the motor ice the slower the ice melts. Now if the door gasket isn't sealing properly then the ice could melt to fast. Also the ice is going to melt some and when it does the water has got to drain out the bottom. If the water doesn't drain the ice will be sitting in water and will speed up the melting process dramatically. I hope this helps!

Check the defrost heater, sounds like it is burnt out allowing ice to build up therefore restricting cold air flow. Then the freezer warms up, ice melts and it starts freezing again.

Ice cubes melting and then sticking together


If you have dispenser to get ice or water, there is a cover to it that opens and closes as you ask for ice. If that mechanism is not working it stays open all the time and causes your ice to melt because cold air scapes. You should be able to replace that yourself. Sears sells that part. It is not very expensive. There is a cover over the dispenser pannel. It should right behind it
If you Agur that suppose to turn the ice to dispense, that could burn up too because the agur can not turn all chunk of ice

the problem here is the defrost element is not coming on, the problem is the control board in the fresh food compartment is defective and not telling the element to defrost. Therefore your cooling coils are impacted with ice which keeps freezer cold, and sensor in freezer says everything is ok and therefore sends nothing to refrigerator. Replace the defrost control board, Thaw out the cooling coils in freezer, and your back in business

If the unit is freezing well in the freezer and your ice bin is defrosting or ice is melting together it is your ice maker over filling the tray causing water to leak into the bin. You can purchase kits that contain all ice maker parts needed , it may be the ice maker and it may be the water inlet valve in the back , both come in the kit , go to sears parts on line with the model number from your unit.

Amana bottom freezer


Hello ghilitho, what you are having is an issue with the defrost cycle. There are 3 parts to this, heater, thermosat,and timer. Sometimes on the newer units the timer is the electronic control. What you are seeing is after you defrost the unit, it works for a time, this is because the evap fan pushes the air thru the unit. With the evap coil froze solid, the cooling drops. You will need a ohm meter to check the heater and thermosat, the heater & thermosat should show to be closed. Also make sure if this unit has a over heat thermosat that it is closed. It may have open up. If all this is good, then the timer is the issue. Hope this helps
