SOURCE: ice acculation under crisper drawers

No. There is, however, a drain hole in the back center that tends to get plugged. Remove the lower two drawers and see if it is plugged. It drains to a pan under the unitand behind the kickpanel

SOURCE: Ice build up in freezer

Defrost system failure.

Defrost timer, heater, therma disk, any one could be bad.

You could manually defrost and this would get the Ref back to working for a couple of days before it iced up again. Remember there is a lot of ice build up on the cooling coils in the freezer that you can't see so, a little extra time with a hair dryer is needed to do a complete manual defrost.

SOURCE: Build up of ice on bottom of LG fridge freezer

Is it supposed to be self defrost? If so then either underneath the freezer needs to be cleaned. coils if dirty will cause freezer not to work well. I that doesn't help you might have a freon leak which would make it under charged and would ice up like that.

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.

    Amana freezer door doesn't fully shut

    There is a drain inside the freezer part of the arb2257csr. The drain can get clogged and the water from the defrost process will pool up on the bottom of the freezer. You can gain access to the back of the unit and remove the pan drain to clean it out. Then make sure water flows and ice is not blocking the drain. It takes a long time to melt so I used a turkey baster and put hot water into the drain from the lower inside middle of the freezer. This drain pan can get pretty smelly when rancid oils and such don't evaporate the way it was designed to evaporate the water. The symptoms were ice on the inside bottom and water pooling in the front of the drawer. It also became very hard to close the door due to the frozen door slide. I have not seen anyone report this on any site so far. Everyone talks about the thermostat but no one seems to have arteriosclerosis of the drain tube.

    Ice maker on amana abc2037dtb is not making ice, but water dispenser works

    you could still have a bad water valve. there are 2 ports. i usually jump the ice maker thru a cycle and see if you get 110 volts to the ice maker water valve. if you get a reading the water valve is bad. if there is no reading then the IM head is bad. last and not least, the IM head needs to be pulled down, see if there is a build up of ice in the supply tube to the IM. then you have a problem with the board

    I have a Amana Bottom Freezer Refrigerator Model BC20ML that is about 20 yr.s old, works fine except the drain tube from refrig. compartment to evaporator drain pan sames to be plugged. Water and ice...

    You have to remove the bottom drawer, remove one of the drawer slider mounts on the freezer wall, and remove the rear panel. If yours has an ice maker you will have to disconnect it and remove it also. Unplug it so the water valve does not dump water on you while you are working inside.

    Frost is building up in bottom freezer. Appliance is running nonstop. I believe that the freezer drawer has been shut completely. Foods in refrigerator section are fine; foods in freezer section are...

    Frost can build up for multiple reasons. Most common is the start os an iceblock. Other reasons can include condensation from door being left open or opening too much. It can also happen from backsplash from the inlet tube for the ice maker. If the fridge is running non stop. It sounds like the ice block is forming and the temps are not getting to the program temps. If at factory setting the freezer should be at or around 0 degrees and fridge should be between 42 and 48 degrees. Has the fridge shutdown at all to go into defrost? The defrost timer may have went out and is causing an iceblock. If there is an ice block always change bimetal/ defrost thermostat.

    If you need any further assistacne please feel free to comment me.

    Bottom freezer suddenly had condensation and light wasn't working

    That could be the fan in the freezer with ice build up in the area of the evaporator coils which would indicate a problem with the auto defrost system the evaporator coils are behind the back panel of the freezer .

    AMANA ARB2257C ice maker makes noise/doesn't eject cubes into bin

    Hi: First off make sure the fridge is level. Is It too high in front? Making the rear of the icemaker overflow and jam? Also make sure the freezer section is a zero degrees, not just frozen. Ice cream should be rock hard. I hope this helps you avoid calling service. Thank You, Jeff

    Freezer Drawer Stuck

    Our 550 bottom freezer drawer froze shut earlier this week and the motor made an unusual sound, like it was working too hard. Two of us eventually were able to open the drawer to find that it had frozen shut due to a leak which filled the ice tray solid and then adhered to the actual door, freezing it shut. We emptied the fridge and freezer, turned the control dials down to 0, but neither the motor nor the light would go off. We finally killed the circuit breaker to get the appliance to shut down. It's cleaned and defrosted and we noticed that the gasket has torn in three places, two on the fridge door and one on the freezer door. The freezer door could be from our tugging, but the refrigerator door is normal wear and tear. We filled the tears with some kind of putty and when it is dry we will start everything up again. This is not the first problem of this nature we have experienced with our subzero 550, but it is the most dramatic. Each previous time we have called a repair man out and he has been unable to fix it.
