Question about Amana AFD2535DES French Door Refrigerator

Amana AFD2535DEW freezer/refrigerator with intermittent tempurature swings

4 years old. 10 days ago, freezer stopped freezing. Kept hearing a clicking noise, like a switch, go for 10 seconds or so then stop. Would do this every five minutes, but freezer no longer freezing. Took everything out, called the repairman. By the time he showed up 2 days later, the freezer was again working, he was unwilling to do anything. 4-5 days with freezer OK.

2 days ago, freezer stopped freezing again. Same clicking noise.
Yesterday I noticed the inside refrigerator french doors - a lot of heat coming from both surfaces where the doors meet. Refrigerator getting warmer, got up to 60 degrees. Took all of the food out. This morning, freezer partially freezing, refrigerator at about 45 (warmer than usual).

Repairman coming tomorrow, what can I tell him? Something's obviously not right. I've read a few other posts here, mine is very intermittent.

    Thanks, this is exactly what the repairman figured out also. Fortunately, it was misbehaving when he was here,

    Thanks for responding! We're all fixed now..

I had the same issue. It was the relay overload which essentially provides the extra boost to get the compressor going. The switch tries for about 10 seconds before giving up and then retries 3 - 4 minutes later. In the early stages of failure, eventually it will work and the compressor will kick on. But eventually the switch will fail and will just cycle through the 10 second attempt every 3 to 4 minutes. The part is about $35 - part number 67005560.

Mine did the same thing about two years ago. It turned out, my problem was the little motor that opens the vent in the refrig portion to let the cold air in from the freezer went bad. A&E service tech said this was common. Cost about $90 to fix. Haven't had the problem anymore.

Amana ABC2037DEB after 4 years, now freezer click and hum melting


that click followed by a hum can only be one thing
pull the unit out and feel the compressor, if its really hot you have a relay and overload issue, and it struggles to start.
with any luck, it is the external relay and overload found mounted to the comresssor should be a lil white block
if not it will be two differant parts
a lil white one and a brown one
let these cool a bit and check both for continutity
ive included a link for the parts
they are 10 and 11 on the schematic

You have a defrost problem. 3 parts: Timer (or "adaptive defrost control"), defrost heater and def. termination thermostat.Find the timer, it shoud be nehind the bottom front grille to the right on Amana (if you see a blck box under there with a sticker on it, it's the ADC model) turn the timer CW until it clicks. Take the back off the bottom of the freezer and listen. After 5-10 minutes if you hear the sound of the sound of water hitting a hot grill. If you hear this the heater and thermo are working and the problem is the timer/ADC. No hiss? Unplug fridge. Check thermo and heater for continuity. Replace the one that's open. If the heater's open, replace the thermo too: Maybe it didn't open soon emouhg and caused heater failure.

My Amana AFD2535DEW freezer problem


Sound like the compressor is having trouble starting. You can purchase a RCO810 to assist the compressor's start winding. If the unit is under 5yrs there should be some warranty (no electrical parts) left in the compressor. It will need to be replaced.
