Question about Amana ARB8057CSR Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Our Amana ARB 8057 CSR has iced up (badly) about 4 times over the last two years. By badly I mean that I had to slide the frig out to empty the water from the condensing tray (about three times) so that it wouldn't overflow while I defrosted it. Each time I attributed it to someone leaving the door open, because I would find it open. This last time I took the panel covering the coils off and there was snow from top to bottom, so I wondered if the defrost was working at all.
I checked the t-stat by throwing it in my other freezer(ok), hot wired the defrost(ok), and checked the timer by turning it to defrost (with the defroster element unplugged) and waiting. In about 35-40 minutes I heard the compressor kick on. I know that this didn't really check the whole timer operation (all the way around it's cycle) but I put it all back together and turned it on. I heard the compressor kick on and later when I returned (2hrs.) the frig and freezer were not cooling at all. The lights are on but nothing else is running. I pulled the timer back out and could hear and feel that it wasn't running. Checked for power and no power to timer. I took notes and plugged everything back in the way it came off.
I'm baffled. Any idea what I may have done to kill this thing?
Checked the switch in the freezer and it was bad. Odd time for it to go out, but it was not working and it would work intermittently if you shook it.
