Question about Avanti FF1101W Top Freezer Refrigerator
Purchased side by side in May 2001 and now having problem with freezer - temp changes from 40 to 20, back to 40 and down to 10 over two-day period. Rusty water leaking out onto the floor. Repairman says it's shot - restriction in the freon tube cannot be fixed. Paid $1,596 for Amana product and hard to believe it cannot be fixed at all! The frig side maintains temp. Any suggestion most appreciated!

I just worked on a FF801W which is supposed to be very similar. The defrost heater in mine was of the glass tube type and located under the evaporator. There was a bimetal thermostat clipped to the top of the evaporator and a thermal fuse (sealed in a clear plastic tube) nearby. The connections were behind a little plastic cover (2 screws) in the back wall just above the evaporator.
Mine was iced up like yours and I had to defrost it with a hair dryer. All the defrosting parts in the freezer compartment turned out to work so I now suspect the defrost timer (down by the compressor). I've marked it and I'm waiting to see if it's turning.
