Click Here for your user manual=> MQU1556AEW.pdf The settings for defrost should come automatically every 12 hours. You may test the defrost timer that appears to be behind the kick plate at base and front bottom of refrigerator by removing the kick plate first and using a flathead screwdriver turn slowly clockwise until compressor stops. After a few minutes you should be able to hear a crackling noise or sizzle by opening the door and listening. Leave the timer like that for up to 35 minutes and if the freezer does not start on its own the the timer is not working properly and will need replaced. Click Here=> MQU1556AEW Unit parts number 15 in photo is defrost timer. The defrost timer is part number=> 4357124 Defrost Timer Check for air leaks around door seal as this will cause the same symptoms. If by chance the defrost timer works and the defrost does not then let me know here or here=> Appliance 911 The only other parts are the defrost heater number 16 in photo MQU1556AEW Unit Parts and part number for defrost heater is Click Here=> 8201749 If you change the defrost heater it is always good to replace the defrost thermostat number 18 in MQU1556AEW Unit Parts The defrost thermostat is part number=> 1-81801-001 The most likely problem is the defrost timer but I needed to cover every possibility. If you have questions please feel free to ask, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Error code 24 e. Freezer defrost error. Now what do I do? Help Please!


You have a problem in the de-frost system. Could be a timer, very common, heat element, very common. Look on line or your owner manual and see what that code is telling you. The average person can not make this repair. Hope it is under warranty.

What setting do I use to make the freezer freeze food


When you are freezing something, set your freezer on its highest setting. However, if you are going to leave your freezer empty for a long time, you should change the setting to a lower one. Here's a great tip for ice cream: place a tub of ice cream in a ziplock bag before putting it in the freezer; it prevents freezer burn. You know when your ice cream gets so cold, it's hard to scoop out? Doing this stops that, it's keeps the ice cream just soft enough for easy scooping!

Our freezer is not de-frosting, there is a build up of ice


Sometimes ice will build up because of hummity. dont know where your at but best thing would be to get everything out and turn off . and defrost manually we used to do this on old friges with a hairdryer. it takes a while. when you start it back up make sure the seal seals good and if ice builds up again the your going to get to call repair man. Hvac and all compressors go through defrost mode. You may have so much ice it wont defrost, also a full freezer works more effecient than empty.

Amana freezer on the bottom not keeping temperature


Hi, If you had ice, there is a drain plugged in the freezer. If you had a frost build up, there is a problem with the automatic defrost.

I can help in either case. Please let me know if you need more assistance.
