Water despenser is apparently frozen

You may have two mutually exclusive probems... one being the water dispenser doesn't dispense water... As you stated, the obvious remedy would be to replace your filter to see if that is restricting water flow.. secondly, your vegetable crisper is freezing vegetables... chances are that the inlet between the freezer compartment and that vegetable darwer is near there and the damper needs to be closed a bit... See if you can locate the cold air inlet vent and partially close the damper ... Hope that helps...

Temperature Problem - Amana (Maytag) Refrigerator Model AFD2535DES

This comes with a 1 yr warranty from date of purchase.  Look and see if there is a thick frost buildup on the back panel in the freezer section.  If no frost, shut the freezer door and feel for air flow out of the top middle vent in the fridge section.  I would remove that vent cover to make sure the damper is open.  If the damper is closed push it open then feel for air flow.  If no air flow is detected then the evaporator fan motor is bad which is a very commom problem on this model, in fact the most common problem.  If the damper is shut and when you hold it open you do feel air flow then the damper is bad.  Let me know what you find.

Auot defrost problem?

cleaning the condensor is nothing to do with evaporator freezing up. keep an eye on it - you may have a problem with the defrost cycle. problem can also happen if freezer door has been left open

Ice maker makes hollow ice! Why?

Not getting enough water into the ice maker. Could be a partially frozen supply line, restricting the total water input, or it could be that the timer needs to be adjust.

If the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.

Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.

To adjust the timer, follow the instructions here http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/icemaker/diagicemaker.php

Amana refrig

Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Is there ice in the maker?

You'll want to pull the icemaker. Start by disconnecting the wires and then remove the screws holding it in. Check the gears that make the ice maker ams turn. Make sure all the teeth are still on the gears and that there is nothing obstructing them from moving.

Things freese-up in the kenmore fridge

Try turning down the unit a half knotch, 1 full knotch at MAX, the cold air comes from the freezer to the refrig(fresh food) section, its rolls up the back of the wall to circulate it

A fridge that is to cold is usually shown when food nearest the back wall freezes( i get this call plenty times a day, this is the fix)

recommened freezer temp 0-5, fresh food(refrig) temp is 32-40

Freezer Door handle came off after 1 yr.

I had this problem with the bottom freezer door of my Amana.
What I did was slide off the entire door handle by applying pressure pushing toward the right to get the handle off. Once the handle was off, I slid the clip (which was still clipped on to the door) off and screwed it back on to the handle. Once the clip was tightly secured to the back side of the handle, I carefully slid the handle bar back on to the door by sliding it to the left back on to the door clips until it clicked securely back into place.

Maytag Washer model# mah3000aww

out of curiosity why did you replace the wax motor?? did you also replace the machine control board behind the console??? usually thats the issue with this machine is one or the other goes bad and recommend fix is to replace both.A quick visiuall check will determine if htis needs replacing as well, theres athermisotr the blows out). you say you get power to the wax motor, so it should then energize pushing forward into the next to switches, firs one locks door and put on indicator light, the second is actually the spin switch that needs to be activated for the machine to enter a high speed spin

Amana French Door Bottom Freezer

see if there is any ice caught within the ice maker itself preventing proper cycling of the ice maker. if not pop off the white cover to the ice maker(theres small **** in the cover on bottom right corner of white cover to insert a ***** driver and twist the cover will pop off. look into the center of the main plastic gear, there should be 2 "tabs" holding that gear in place . as if you were to push gear on and the tabs would keep it in place.( reason i mention that it is/was a problem with the ice makers hat the gear would break and it was very noticeable looking into the center gear).if not, theres a detailed trouble shooter for the ice maker behind the kickplate(maybe taped up under front corner under cabinet) it will tell you points to check for power and jump out if necessary

My Amana AFD2535DEW freezer problem

Sound like the compressor is having trouble starting. You can purchase a RCO810 to assist the compressor's start winding. If the unit is under 5yrs there should be some warranty (no electrical parts) left in the compressor. It will need to be replaced.
