Accuracy is important --Use a digital thermometer to monitor freezer and fridge temps. Fridge should be around 40 and freezer around zero and then take it from there and draw conclusions

Look inside the back wall inside freezer and if you see ice building up then your Amana needs either a defrost timer=> 67001036 Defrost Timer or you may be having problems with the defrost heater=> 67002493 Defrost Heater Here are some large pictures to help you locate your parts that may be defective=> Amana_ARB9058CS_Evaporator_Components item location number 15 in lower left side of photo. In this case I think your refrigerator may need the defrost timer below but I would like you to manually turn the clock on the time clockwise slowly until compressor and fans stop running. The defrost timer is located inside the fresh food compartment and just behind the controls for adjusting temps inside fresh food compartment location=> Amana ARB9058CS Controls That is my most likely guess the timer but sometimes it will be the defrost heater or defrost thermostat affect these also here=> 12001937 Defrost Thermostat

Ah this is an indication that your condenser has become dirty, or blocked, or the fan motor is not working or the air flow is restricted.
The noise is generated when the compressor cycles off and sudders to a stop

This uses an 8 hour timer which means it goes into defrost every 8 hours shutting down the compressor and fan motor.

  1. I am not expert but this exact same thing happened to me - same model of fridge. The line which brings water in is frozen. I don't know how to solve it permanently, but if you take out the two produce drawers you can see where the water comes through. Put a hair dryer blowing on it for a few minutes and it will get it going again.

Hello Dennis;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

You did not provide a model number. So, I am going to speak in general. It sounds like you have a bad or stuck contact switch. Or, you ice dispenser handle is broken and activating the dispenser.

You contact switch will look like the following:


25331098-tf0pl124dzd5m1czyqgpxhkh-4-0.jpg

There are two slots on the bottom of the dispenser frame for a flat head screw driver. Pop the bottom out. The rest of the frame is held by plastic tabs. Push in the sides to remove the frame.

Ground yourself by touching something that is steal. Static electricity will knock out a board. Remove the board. You will see the contact switch.

Send me the model number and I can be more specific.

Go into the following web site and put in your model number for diagrams and the part number.

Check the plastic drainage tray atop the coils at the bottom underneath. You probably will find a smelly stew waiting to be drained into the sink. Follow up by scrubbing the tray clean.

That can be two things.

1. Condensation

2. The evaporator is in there behind the grill with a small fan. It freezes up and has a defrost which causes water. That water runs into a drain, your drain is blocked or the fan isn't working.

28 years old, you are due for a new one.

This appears to be a reference to the defrosting component of a Amana freezer. Let's just assume that it is not a problem with the freezer door seals. (If the seal is not a tight seal when the door is closed, you have melting occurring and the the freezer trying to compensate by refreezing, yielding a lot of icing in the compartment. This is what happens if you over stuff the freezer and the freezer door does not quite close firmly, as well.)

The Amana defrost thermostat might be defective or have become dislodged for some reason. If defective, it would require replacement. But let's say it is not defective. The defroster didn't work when there was too much ice buildup. This could cause the molex connector in the thermostat to contract, breaking the connect activating it. One user "fixed" this problem by putting aluminum foil inside the molex connector.

If the theromostate became dislodged from its "attachment point", one would need to know the model of the freezer know where that point was. https://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/threads/amana-defrost-thermostat-installation-location.27405/

There are videos describing replacement of the thermostat in some Amana's. You can find such on YouTube. I just can't promise that replacement would fix the problem.
