Question about Amana ARB9058CS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Refrigerator is about four years old. Suddenly the water from the dispenser has stopped (filter recently changed, button held down for three minutes, makes noise as if water should be flowing, but no water), and in the last three days, suddenly, a tremendous amount of frost has built up in the freezer, on the top left hand side (near to the ice maker, near to the door). We thought the seal became bad, but it appears to be the way that it always was....any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
I own the Amana ARB9058CS (since 2003) and recently had both the water dispenser and ice maker stop working. In the process of checking things out I noticed two things: 1st the refrigerator section was freezing the produce. 2nd the ice maker was making a sound like a gate creaking, this sound was continuous and was the first thing to catch my attention. I took the advice from the 1st solution Posted 10-16-08 and used a hair dryer on the lines behind the produce drawers and in about 5 minutes or less I was getting water from the dispenser but the ice maker kept making the creaking sound so I turned the hair dryer on it and in about 7 minutes the noise stopped and the 1st batch of ice came out an hour later. The root cause of my problem was the temperature control knob on the left upper part of the freezer compartment, which is literally out of sight. A bad place to put a control knob because you can rotate the knob by bumping it when you place items in the freezer. The knob on my freezer had rotated in this manner almost to maximum freezing, thereby creating the problem above. Solution: Pull the knob off & keep it in the butter keeper or on one of the door shelves.
