Try unclogging the drain line for the freezer. What seems to be happening is your refrigerator is working too hard to keep the temperature that it reads inaccuately. Usually a light defrost will do the trick , sometimes a longer defrost or one using warmers...don't be too tempted to use anything like a hair dryer for safety reasons.

Make sure you keep your frig door closed and use the frozen food in the frig to hold temps down.

Good luck.

Ice maker makes ice but freezes before it can be dispensed so the dispenser is always clogged with frozen ice. Cleaned out the ice maker and started over but same results. The temp is set at 38 for the...


Hi, The freezer should be "0", the possible clogging you have could be a leaking water valve or an over filling ice maker. I would have the ice maker checked for volume of water dispenser during harvest, should be 5.5 oz. (2/3 cup), if more the 6 oz. the ice maker is bad. If fails to stop filling or leaks/drips, replace the water valve behind the unit.
I hope this helps.

Our Amana afi2538aes is doing the same thing. Had a repairman out. He called tech support at Amana. They had him adjust the "thermistors" but it is colder than ever running at 28-30degrees in the fresh food compartment despite being set at 46 degrees. Tech support also recommended installing some sort of "ice bin seal kit to take care of the problem" according to our invoice from repairman. Repairman was told that the ice bin in the fresh food compartment puts cold air out (to keep the ice frozen) which freezes the food in the fresh food compartment. I called Amana and the rep I spoke to said he couldn't find record of this being a problem with the model but tech support told our repairman "we've had a lot of problems with this happening."

Icemaker not working...


Hi, first , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If if freezes , and dumps , replace the water valve. If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker. After pouring the water into the ice maker , remove the bottom kick panel , and clean the bottom coils , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees , to operate , correctly . If ice maker starts working , after cleaning the coils , GREAT ! ( it does happen ) .

New ge fridge temp on door does not agree with three different temp gauges i have placed in the fridge. 5 to 10 degree difference?


That will happen easily if the temperature probe/thermistor is covered or located behind something stored near it. The door reading also could be out of calibration. If you have an ice maker the ice maker will not want to work very well above 5 degrees. If you run into major problems or this just started happening and you notice changes in the fresh food compartment goes above 38 degrees then that could be the beginning of a defrost problem. If you should need help let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
