Question about Amana Refrigerators

1 Answer

Have an Amana refrigerator with a bottom freezer. Model is ARB2109. The coils in the bottom frost up which causes the refrigerator portion to not cool properly. Occasionally we need to defrost the bottom coils with a hairdryer. This has happened more frequently lately

The bottom freezer portion works, but the top portion is not cooling at all.


Check the refrigerator coil to see if it is iced over. If so you will have to defrost the coil. Also make sure the fan for the evaporator is working. This should fix your problem. Please leave feedback. Thank you

The upper portion of the freezer turns off, causing the ice to melt. And the cooler side bottom drawer turns into a freezer. I can't figure out what's going on.


You have a frost blocked evaporator. Translation: The cooling coils, located behind the back wall inside the freezer section, have plugged up with frost (usually caused by a burnt out defrost heater, located at the bottom of these coils) which prevents the cold air from circulating inside the freezer, and into the top of the fresh foods section. At the same time, this blocked air flow allows very cold air at the bottom of the freezer section to migrate back into the bottom of the fresh foods section, and thus freeze item in the bottom bins of the refrigerator. Unload the freezer, take the shelves out and remove the back panel. Melt the frost with a hair blower, and change out the heater at the bottom.

Coils keep frosting over in my freezer draw Amana refrigerator. Defrosted about a month ago and now having the same problem again. Why would this happen in a frost free fridge and how can I fix it?


The defroster thermostat is what usually causes a ref/freezer to act this way. It can be changed by anyone handy with tools. You refrigerator schematic should show you where it is located.

Bottom portion of fridge not getting any cold air few days. Then freezer frosted overnight.


hi ,
your freezer cabinet need to get all out and open the back wall.
  1. you have 2 element that can be check one is the heating element , two is the thermostat.
  2. you need a volt meter to check them.
  3. if the frost is all over the coils then one of the element i told you before, is bad
  4. if the frost is in one area not all over then you got gas leak.
  5. good luck 911service today . com
