Question about Amana ASB 2623 Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Have an Amana SX25SW side by side fridge from 1997. Last year, we put some large boxes in the freezer that didn't quite fit so DH kept slamming the door into them to make it fit. After that, seems there's some crunchy stuff in the freezer door middle section that possibly fell down from the upper portion and that part of the door bows out and the shelves don't stay on. Also, there's not much suction with opening the door after this. What's up?

SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

SOURCE: Amana bottom freezer/ refrigerator

Geezer, sounds like a defrost issue. I usually find the bi-metal to be the culprit on this model. Check out the pic. You will have to remove the back panel in the freezer and defrost the evaporator. Remove the ice maker if there is one. The back cover has 4 quarter inch screws. remove those. The air vent has 2 plastic clips one each side and one on the bottom, push in and pull the grill off. The thermistor cover has a slot for a flat blade screw driver,push in and pull the cover off. The thermistor will now slide behind the back panel. Check the bi-metal for buldging. As long as the evaporator fan is working, it's probably a defrost problem.

SOURCE: Bottom of freezer/fridge only getting cold.

Thre is a fan inside the freezer which circulates the cold air around both the fridge and the freezer compartments.
You should be able to feel cold air blowing around the inside, particularly at the top of the freezer.
If the defrost thermostat fails open, the internal fan (depending on freezer) will stop and this can be the cause of the freezer being warm at the top and no ice.
You say the bottom of the freezer is blowing cold, but are you sure its blowing, as it can feel like a cold blow. Of course the fan could have failed or may be the defrost heater itself.
Have a look at this site for some useful trouble shooting

My Amana 26 cu ft side by side quit cooling entirely in the freezer and the refrigerator. Is it worth it to get a repairman or should we just get a new frig. This one is 6 years old


I suggest get help with repairman.6 year old is not very old.Refrigerators have life more then 8 to 10 years.The problem can be temperature not set properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is getting leaked out. These are basic possibilities which first need to be checked. But if these possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then its weak compressor issue.

Freezer and fridge not cooling properly


Clean it up. Check under it and behind, clean ,vacume and or blow out all dust and check the fins on the bottom, a soft brush and portable air compressor work really well but very dusty, take out side if possible, or just vacume really well.

Amana sx25sw - side by side - fridge not cooling


might be as simple as bad defrost timer( 10530703 $50)and/ or defrost thermostat(R0161088 $35), replace em both for under a hundred bucks. the timer is found behind the kickplate lower right hand side and the derfost thermo is wired in behind the rear panel atop the evaporator, and yea your right its preventing flow cause you "self-defrost" isnot functioning.Great frig though Id fix it

its quite possible, that "the box with thermostat and small door fix on chanel for regulating cold air from freezer in fridge side", is not the problem, there can be a few diff problems, the fan in the freezer may n ot be blowing the air over, you may have a bad defrost thermostat, preventing proper defrost cycles and building up with ice preventing proper air flow. i would look into a little more before condemning the part your lookin at( damper control)
