Question about Amana ABB2224DEW / ABB2224DEQ / ABB2224DEB Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a 5-6 year old Amana bottom freezer model number ABB2224DEW. After researching the "buzz-click" noise and having it get progressively worse to the point where it was doing it every few minutes and the fridge and freezer were shutting down, I took out the relay and capacitor. Can someone please advise where to order the correct part from? Also, should I replace both parts, or is the relay enough.

Generally the capacitor doesn't need to be replaced. I think that this part number contains both. 67005560. Est.$32.00. Any appliance repair parts house. I want you to look at the label on the compressor. Does it have a picture of an Indian that says Tecumseh? If it does, don't waste your money on the part. Put it towards a new refrigerator. Sorry.

    You can try it. It might run for a while. Just google Tecumseh compressors. In 09 I replaced 50 of them.

    When you change any start assist parts you should always change all the parts. start cap, run cap, start relay. There is other reasons why the start parts are going bad not just the compressor is faultly. Short cycling has a lot to do with it and also problem in pressures equalizing at shutdown can cause problems. Instead of dealing with a parts changer try finding someone that knows service. hope this helps. thank you. wally.

It sounds like you are hearing the overload on the compressor closing. When the overload closes the relay tries to start the compressor (that might be the buzzing sound) and if the compressor doesn't start the overload opens and turns the compressor off. You will need to replace the relay on the compressor.

The replacement compressor kit is #12002633 from Amana (Now Whirlpool).
In this kit are the following New model compressor, relay/capacitor, jumper and instructions.
Kenmore does not make appliances rather all of the other manufacturers produce for them.
That part number is for Whirlpool Start Relay/Capacitor and as long as the compressor is the right horsepower for the relay it makes no difference who made it. (Techumseh or Embraco)

Hello,

There is an evaporator fan locateed inside top of the freezer compartment. It is normally hidden behind a plastic cover. It should be running whenever the Fridge is calling for cooling. Check to see if this fan is running. My suspicion is that it is not running. Replace this and you should be back in business.

You will see the fan assembly at the bottom right corner of the picture.

My frig is making a buzzing sound


Well if the buzzing is coming from the compressor area then that could very well be the compressor relay. If the buzzing is coming from inside you might very well have ice building up, maybe a defrost problem causing the evap fan to maybe rub some ice. if it gets worse and the fresh food compartment begins to suffer and warm up then maybe a bad heater or defrost thermistat. All these components and a way to check em all can be found in this AMANA BOTTOM MOUNT SERVICE MANUAL

See the post by lola77 with the same complaint. We have an Amana top/bottom freezer and are having the same problem and we've only had it 4 1/2 years. First service call available that the 1-800 number gave me was 3 days from now, which is ridiculous.

Buzzing intermittent


most likely the compressor relay is the clicking noise but i think the problem is most likely the compressor is starting to go bad and is lcoking up. if the refig is under 5 yrs old it is most likely still in warranty by amana
