Question about Amana ABB2227DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I purchased this refrigerator in 4/2006. By 10/2006, the unit had become so noisy that we couldn't tolerate it any longer. Scheduled a service call, and the repairman did me a "favor", and replaced a small motor that he said opened a small passage that connects the upper/lower compartments. While he claimed it was functioning correctly, it was just noisy. The motor replaced was located in the top center (behind the light). What is causing this noise, if the unit is working correctly? Is there some preventive maintenance that I can perform that would avoid this problem from re-occurring?
The motor is an "auto damper" that opens/closes to let cold air from the freezer comp. into the refer comp. depending on the temp. There is nothing you can do for maintenance, the little motor runs the damper when needed automatically. Some motors are quiet, some are noisy (grind grind grind) as the open and close. Sort of the nature of the beast, if you're lucky you get one that stays quiet.
