    that advice was no help at all. The refrigerator is an ammana .does anyone have experience with an ammana refrigerator. If you can't help, I want a refund of my $6.00

    The solutions you offered are all things I had already done myself. I finally got a repair person. Turns out the fan motor was burned out.
    the repair guy suspected that when I spoke to him on the phone and told him what the problem was. none of your people recognized the problem. I got nothing for my $6.00

It seems that the fan, compressor are fine but the gas, Ferone, has leaked out. It has to refilled. Please call up the service center of your fridge and ask them to do the needful.

Before you go and try replace any parts, you will want to clean the dust off of the fridge parts. When a fridge doesn't cool properly it can often be because of dust.

You need to clean the front. If you are looking at your fridge, down along the floor you will see a plastic cover with vent holes. You need to pop this off and vacuum the dust off of the grate. You will need to vacuum the back of the fridge as well. And if you have a shop vac, after using the vacuum part of the vacuum, then put the hose on the blow side to clean the areas that you couldn't reach. Make sure to unplug the fridge before cleaning.

Good Luck!

Hello,

there are many reason for this type of problem,

However, here are likely solutions to those problem ,first of alll check on the power control if it at the right position i.e were it will regulate the power supply if not then make sure it at a particular unit i.e 1,2,3,4,5.... or A,B.C,D.E...e.t.c.

2) Did you move the refrigerator ? if yes what time interval did you put on the power supply,if willin a short period then it means that there have been an over flow of oil from the compressor to the evaporator or condenser down o the dryer at the back of the refrigerator which will need a flushing that you need some technician tool to carry out the assignment/home work.

3) Did you allow the refrigerator for some time with out use ? if the answer is yes then it means that there ha been a linkage of gas some were how from the condenser which will need a replacement/refill from the compressor.

Finally put off the refrigerator power (system) for some time then put it on again then if it then star to work again has it expected meaning that solution number 2 will be consider , and if the problem remain then consider the solution 3 has the problem but make sure that solution 1 is well taking off if considering any of the above problem.

Good luck,thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Refrigerator running too much


If the machine is running all the time a few things could be happening, The defrost timer could be bad, but if that is the case then you should see a build up of ice forming on the wall that covers the evaporator coils. Another situation is that your machine is low on freon and not reaching a temperature cold enough for the temperature control to shut the machine off. Third and last the temperature control itself could be bad and thinks the machine isn't cold enough. in that situation you would notice ice build up as well. Hopefully this helps.
