Question about Amana Refrigerators

Open Question

We purchased two type 19TFA refrigerators in June 2008 from one of your dealers in Gainesville, Florida. (Serial Number EW1804473), Within 5 weeks the fan motor in the freezer went out and the refrigerator defrosted. 8/26/08 this happened again and the dealer sent a serviceman over who took out the old motor and installed a new one. Something must be wrong with the motors being used--one came in the unit and the replacement was taken from another new Amana. What is the problem here? WE would like the problem fixed as would the dealer who is going to get tired of paying a technician to come to my houe to put in a new motor every 5-6 weeks.

Good trouble shooting TD, the evap fan runs through the defrost T-stat. Change it out and you should be set. Catriver.

SOURCE: both the freezer and refrigerator will not stay

you must have a defrost problem,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not change evap fan motor,remove second from bottom bin and touch the back wall if you feel ice or snow there you have a defrost problem check the t-stat and heater,not sure but if you read the tech sheet i think you can click the light switches to put into defrost,also if plugs are on t-stat,unplug them and bypass the t-stat by pluging the wire to the heater,if heater comes on then you have bad t-stat if not read out heater with meter,also ge has been having alot of problems with the mother board ,if you defrosted it and it happened again in a 2 week period i dout it's the board

Serial Number VS00616665 Type 18 ATM

Raymond, if you go to the following website and plug in your model and serial number it will give the approximate date the refrigerator was made. You would probably have to check with a dealer or the manufacturer for a cost when new. I have been told by dealers to figure about 10% reduction in price for every year since it was made to figure current value.
Hope this will help you.

I have a frigidaire model glhs37ehsb7, serial # 4a92704953. How old is this refrigerator as I got it second hand

It was produced July 2009. The first digit of the serial number tells the year, 9 = 2009, and the next two numbers describe the week during that year it was produced, 27= Week of July 2-7th, 2009.

I am needing to find the serial number for fridge model number LBN20518ST

The serial number should be located inside the refrigerator section on the right wall. If not there, look on the right side of the refrigerator or in the back. The serial number is usually 3 numbers followed by 4 letters and then 5 more numbers.
Good luck

I have a GE side by side refrigerator that keeps blowing the defrost heater element. MODEL # TFT22JWDA WW SERIAL # TZ264141 I bought it from a GE dealer about 5-6 years ago. It ran fine for 3 years,...

In my GE side-by-side there is a defrost temp sensor located near the top of the evaporator coil. I think the control board uses that temp sensor to know when it should be done defrosting.

On the schematic of my fridge (link below), the defrost thermistor is part number 240 in the diagram (not part number 241, which is a different temp sensor located adjacent to the one you want)

I don't know why the defrost element would fail immediately other than incorrect supply voltage or just a bad defrost element.

Try damper part number W10167268 from Whirlpool. They re-engineered the part, it's works different. Whirlpool issued a bulletin to servicers, but won't cover it under warranty (I have tried for many customers) "A bulletin is NOT a recall"
