SZD27MW - Freezer Fan not working - temp runs 40 midway in freezer

Amana Side-by-Side Refrigerator SZD27MW The bottom of the freezer compartment will keep ice frozen, top portion is warm 38-44. Refer section stays at 50. Freezer fan does not come on, there is a fan going by the condenser coils. Tried unplugging the freezer section thermostat, and jumping the wires, that did help. Any ideas? What voltage is across the freezer fan?

Voltage is either 240V or 110V either way it is stamped on the fan motor. You have a sensor controlling the fan and heater which could have gone open circuit and on some cabinets they use the neutral through the heater to bring in the fan so you could have a heater gone. You can bypass the sensor but this should not be a long term solution as it is a safety mechanism. Hope this helps.

Gladiator Freezerator wont stay frozen in the bottom portion. It will go to temp when temp is mved, but then start to warm up. Why?


If the bottom freezer section of the Gladiator Freezerator is thawing out the usual cause is from the coils in the back of the top refrigerator section being iced up. The ice blockage prevents the fan from circulating cold air into the bottom freezer section. These units have a design flaw due to the defrost drain freezing up preventing water from draining out from under the coil. The long-term solution is to remove the back wall of the refrigerator section to get to the coil, thoroughly defrost the coil making sure the drain tube is clear, then wrap a couple turns of #12 or #14 copper house wire around the bottom of the defrost heater element and run it a few inches into the drain tube. Advise unplugging the unit when you do this.

I've had this fix on my Gladiator for a couple years and it has been working perfectly ever since. The freezer stays a constant 0 degrees F and no more thawed out food.

The evaporator fan is not working. You will have to open the front inside panels on the freezer side to get access to the fan, which is just below the ice maker. It may just require a little servicing, or the fan motor is bad or the controller at the back supplying electricity is bad.

Top refrigerator warm bottom is ice cold.


An automatic defrost time turns the defrost cycle on and off every 24 hours. If problem continues, problem is most likely defective defrost timer.

Even electronically controlled units often have electro-mechanical timers for defrost cycle.

Amana refrigerator, bottom freezer. Back keeps icing up. I have unplugged and thawed it twice, within 2 weeks it is frozen again and freezer warm


This is a defrost problem most likely caused by a defective defrost thermostat. It is located in the freezer compartment behind back wall on top right hand side of coils and usually has a brown and an orange wire connecting to it. It should have continuity when checking with a volt/ohm meter when it is frozen and read open when it is warm.
I have seen many of the newer electronic temperature model bottom mounts with defective control boards as well that cause the fridge to skip the defrost cycle.
Good luck!

Side by side Maytag frig that is warm on top, not bottom


You can turn the thermostat off for now to let the ice thaw out, if a door was left open there might not be anything wrong, but if it freezes up again sounds like you might have a bad defrost heater or defrost limit. Hope this helps

Amana BX22A2W - freezer works, fridge not cooling


Same problem here with an Amana refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom. I removed the back panels and vacuumed dust and cat hair out. The back panel in the freezer was frosted over with ice on the bottom. I removed the shelves and food and used a hairdryer to loosen the panel. The ice maker made it harder to remove the plastic panel so I pulled it back and saw the cooling fins frozen solid. I used the hairdryer to melt the ice and a shop vacuum to collect the water. It works like new again.
