Question about Amana Refrigerators

1 Answer

Have Amana refrig with bottom mounted freezer Model ARB2217CW. Noticed the last day or so it makes a buzzing noise--almost like an electric shaver then it shuts off with a click. Today items in freezer where beginning to thaw. Any idea if what this is?

    Off and on buzzing. Stopped for about a month after cleaning under the fridge. Now back again. Dx by repairman as a bad condenser but I'm sceptical.

    buzz @ the beginning of the cycle when it first comes on and then it goes off with a click.

    I heard a clicking sound intermittently then the next day I noticed the items in the freezer were not frozen.

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.

Amana AFD2535FES makes loud buzzing noise


When a start relay and the coil that opens the water for the ice maker or the water dispenser begin to weaken they some times buzz. Its possible you will need to either replace the=> 67003753 Water Inlet Valve

Amana ABB222DE is the overload/capacitor the same thing as the compressor relay? I just had the compressor relay replaced in amana bottom mount. Frig cools fine but every 2 days or so buzzing noise...


I have been doing refrigeration for over 30 years and I have never seen a compressor with a chip inside of it. Have you tried cleaning the condensor coils? I almost sounds like you have a weak start capacitor. Let me know if i can help you any futher.

Model number ARB2217CW Amana Refrigerator Bottom Freezer. The freezer is working fine but the fridge has stopped cooling. No strange noises, no frost, no water leaking--just not cooling at all.


I would check the circulating fan. This problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan spins but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and the frig.

Freezer works fine...refrigerator section


Have you noticed more frost in the freezer than usual? It sounds like you may have moisture building up and freezing around evaporator fan. The fan blade hitting ice will cause the buzzing until it stops it completely or the evaporator clogs with frost and blocks airflow. If you have frost on food in freezer, check the door seals and make sure nothing is keeping doors from closing completely if you release them about 6" from cabinet.

ARB2214CB - Condensor is Noisy


It sounds as if the thermal limit on the compressor is cutting off power to the compressor when it gets too hot. There could be 3 reasons for this. One, the compressor is just bad...should be covered under the 5 year sealed sytem warranty (if its less than 5 years old of course) if this is the case. Two, the thermal overload and start relay assembly is bad. They are mounted directly to the compressor (big round black thing) and can be changed for about$14 in parts (unplug the unit before replacing!) Three, the fan that runs in the bottom near the compressor that cools the compressor and condenser is jammed or not rotating for some reason. It should run any time the the compressor is running. If it doesnt, it need replaced or the compressor will do exactly what you are describing. Hope this helps!
