Question about Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Warm fridge The freezer works but the fridge is warm. The fan wasn't running so my brother hook it up to power and it worked. The vent to the fridge is open. We also bypassed the defrost thermostat but the fan still wouldn't run. What can we try next or did we miss something. Thanks, Joe

    Thank you for your reply. This fridge does have the digital display. Is there any way to test the Jazzboard? This fridge is 2 years old...is there warranty on parts?



    Thanks,

    Joe

If this Amana has digital display at top in fridge more than likely the Jazzboard (control board) has failed. Check for votage at fan if you don't get any or some times if you do the Jazzboard can still have issues controling the evap.fan. I've found the Jazz board to go bad some times. Hit me back let me know. Jazz board is in the control box were the digital numbers light up.

Your frig has the classic symptoms of a frig with a clogged or blocked vent between the
freezer section and the refrigerated section. This clog can occur due to (a) stuff in the freezer blocking the vent, or (b) ice in the freezer blocking the vent, or (c) both of the above.

The way a refrigerator works is it cools the freezer, and the warmest air in the freezer is vented out
to the refrigerator section. If this vent is blocked (and everything else is working), your refrigerator
just became a eye-level small freezer atop a well-insulated section of dangerously warm food.

Defrosted freezer and turned back on. freezer seems to work but not fridge. back wall of fridge feels warm


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Fridge/freezer. Freezer works great but fridge is


Air from the freezer is blown into the fridge by a fan, some new type frigs have electronic controls that open and close a vent to frig. the older ones have two vents in the frig from the freezer and when covered with frost or ice the air will not reach the frig. check for ice or just defrost the freezer if there is ice or frost, also check for food or plastic over vents in freezer. Also check that the freezer fan is running as these sometimes become blocked or defective motor.

The freezer side does not freeze on the top shelf. The refrigerator freezes everything in the bottom but reads 47 degrees and doesn't cool the top shelves. The fan under the fridge runs fine.


Behind the back wall of the freezer about halfway down, probably behind the light bulb (if there is one there) there is a fan. My guess is that the fan isn't working, or is slow. To test, open the freezer door, then hold the door switch closed and listen for the fan.

This fan should be blowing air up the back of the freezer, and send some of the cold air through a vent at the top of the freezer into the fridge. The air then descends through the fridge and reenters the freezer through a vent at the bottom. If the fan is broken, or if the upper vent is somehow blocked or broken, the cold air will enter (rather than exit) the fridge side at the bottom vent. Because cold air tends to descend and warm air rises, the cold air will freeze the stuff at the bottom of the fridge, and the thermostat (at the top of the fridge) will say it is warm.

We have a Dometic 2310 - freezer works well, fridge seems inconsistent. Top of fridge gets very warm. Is it helpful to add a cooling fan?

Freezer is ok, but fridge is not cold enough


5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked.

Replace if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional. defrost solutions: unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of.

Warm fridge


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, this normally would point to the fan not spinning. The function of the fan is to draw the cold air from the freezer and force it through the vents to the refrigerator area. Even having said this, the fan is activated by the logic controller based on the the thermostat setting of the refrigerator and condition of the door (it must be closed).
To check:
  • fan - open the door, locate the door switch, press on it, light should go off, fan should kick in within 60 seconds. If not, faulty fan, fan relay, or controller. Alternately, you can measure the continuity of the motor's coil and or if there is voltage going to the terminals of the motor;
  • thermostat refrigerator side, you would need to use a continuity tester or have an electronics shop perform this. At room temperature the reading should be low, and should go high when the probe end is submerged in a glass of cold water.
Alternately, it may be the vents, flaps or vanes that are stuck, clogged, blocked and hence no air flow from the freezer to the fridge side.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
