Amana fridge. french door ice maker now seems to freeze overflow of water so i'm using hair dryer frequently to remove the clog. why is this starting


Your defrost assembly has probably stopped working, which means that you are probably also building up ice in between the panels.

Top half of both fridge and freezer appears to have stopped working.


Your defrost heater or defrost thermostat may be bad. Test defrost heating element for continuity. If heater is good, replace the defrost thermostat. In most cases, replacing both is advisable.

Amana model SXD25QA3W. Not cooling. Compressor runs.


Low on refrigerant which is R 12. EPA has stopped the manufacture of it and it is priced out of sight.
You have a leak and will need it fixed. Compressor is about $300-400 list. You don't want to go there.
Good luck but likely 15-17 years old....... New one ???

On an Amana ARS2661BS Unit does not cool on either side


Pull it away from the wall and remove the cover the covers the compressor. Unplug and tell me if the compressor is too hot to touch or if running or any signs of life. If not running and cool I want plug it back in, and open the fresh food door and and look for a hole in the control panel where you adjust temperatures. The opening is about the size of a pencil eraser. Sometimes this hole is covered by a plastic plug. Stick a small flathead screwdriver slowly clockwise until the compressor restarts. If this works the refrigerator needs a new defrost timer. Sometimes the defrost timer will stick in defrost and stop. Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

can be a few things, if you open the freezer door do you hear afan running?? perhaps the fan is no good?? is there a large amount of frost on the lower plate of back wall of freezer??? very common issue to have a bad defrost thermostat.

That fan is most likely on trying to defrost that frozen coil. It sounds like you may need a thermostat, a coil cleaning, and hopefully the system is not low on charge, those are 99% of the causes for a freezer, or refrigerator to freeze, hope all works out.

Amana side by freezer fan frozen will not run


Fan not operating could be caused by the excess frost buildup in the freezer coil. Defrost problems are related to a failure of the timer, heater, or defrost thermostat. Locate the timer and rotate the clutch head screw clockwise until you hear one audible click. That puts the system into defrost mode. If the system restarts after 18-22 minutes your problem is in the heater circuit. Heater and defrost thermostat is located behind the back wall of the freezer section.
