SOURCE: amana side-by-side fridge freezer only cold at the bottom

yes the evap fan in the frezer should be running when the compressor is running[it may not for a minute or so as it starts up.Amana's are good for the connectors at the evap fan motor comming apart.the connectors are white and will look like its together but when you pull it will come apart.i would always cut the connector out and use a wire nut so wont happen again.if any other questions please email thru FixYa and i will be glad to help. God bless ,tom

SOURCE: fan runs constantly, freezer ice melting, bottom drawer in refrig

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.

  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.

  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    SOURCE: Ice cubes melted, but items at the bottom are still cold.

    I believe you solved your own prob.. definitly sounds like the fan motor stopped.

    My hoshizaki ice machine KM-900mrf model beeps 3 times and stop making ice. After reset it starts, but stats beeping again after an hour.

    Have a look at the side of the evaporator; there is a probe (thermistor) attached to it that tells the control board when to initiate the harvest cycle. make sure it's clean and attached properly and doesn't need replacing. If hitting the float switch initiates the harvest cycle it sounds like you have a blocked/ scaled water tube or switch housing. take off the bottom of the switch assembly (black rubber bit) and clean through to the water chamber. run a cycle of descaler before trying again.

    That is normal... if it is a window mount check to see if the drain at the bk is clear... if you need to drill a couple of small holes near the bk using a bit about the size of this O..make sure not to drill too deep, just enough to go past the casting as you don't want to hit the internals. Make sure it is tilted bk slightly so that the water runs towards the out side and not into the Refer if the ac all of a sudden stops blowing cold air it is an ice build up from that same water and will have to be unplugged for a few hours to allow that ice to melt

    Ice maker not working

    what was reset button for? is it something like defrost the unit when press. you said that it is already replaced then likely your problem is with the unit thermostat all ref unit has it and most likely to fail overtime, it is also possible that there is leak on the sealing doors which makes your ice melts faster when the motor stop pumping freon

    Hoshizaki km - 280 mah ice maker not making enough ice

    A few simple things to check is the condenser for dust. Blow it out. If their is a water filter going into the unit change it. Get some ice machine cleaner and follow directions. Do these things before calling anyone out.

    Seems to make ice but will not keep it cold therefore it melts. It does this about 3 or 4 times a year but after staying off it will start working again

    The only thing that keeps the ice cold is the ice itself. If the icemaker isn't making ice fast enough then the ice will melt before more ice drops to keep it cold. In other words the motor ice the slower the ice melts. Now if the door gasket isn't sealing properly then the ice could melt to fast. Also the ice is going to melt some and when it does the water has got to drain out the bottom. If the water doesn't drain the ice will be sitting in water and will speed up the melting process dramatically. I hope this helps!

    My bottom refrigerator is not cold. The freezer is okay.

    Check to make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working and not blocked. This delivers the cold air to the refrigerator. The fan should run every time the freezer calls for cold.

    GE Refrigerator Stoped making ice

    the small pipe in side the freezer the one that supplies water to it, it builds ice in side, you can melt the ice by getting some hot water and a towel and wet the pipe with it intel ice melts , or you can unplug the frige with the door open over night.first solution is better.
