Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Refrigerator door opens on its own

Our Amana TX18L, serial #9812235114 refrigerator door opens on its own if it is pushed shut and also opens when you close the freezer door. I have had to put a child clip on the freezer as this was happening there too and will purchase one for the fridge although these are a pain. Do you think the seals need replacing or is it air pressure problem. There is nothing blocking/pushing on the doors at all. Thanks for any help you can give me.

SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

SOURCE: Amana Side-by-Side refrigerator hot spot

hi tanks for the question there are heaters at the spots you said were hot and those heaters are there to prevent moist air from hitting cold surface and create warer droplets from forming on those surfaces i would remove the back of the fridge and vacuum it out that should solve your problem thanks the appliance doc

I have an Amana Refrigerator. It is a double door on top and a pull out freezer on the bottom. The freezer is working fine. The refrigerator light comes on but it is not cold and my fresh food is fading...


either the evaporator fan in the damper vent door isnt running to push cold air from the freezer up into the refrige compartment or the damper vent door between the freezer and refrige section is frozen shut and cannot open to allow cold air flow,you need to access the evaporartor coil in the freezer rear wall and check both the fan and door movement

Freezer freezes but refridegator is warm on amana french door refrigerator.


it could be a defective damper vent door,( frozen shut from condensation) between the freezer and refrigerator,the motor that opens and closes this door,or a thermistor in the refrigerator that signals the control board in the rear of the unit to operate the damper vent door motor to open and close this door

I installed a new magnetic seal on my Amana refrigerator. The new seal has been sitting in its box for about ten years. After installation, I realize it has lost its magnetism. Can I rejuvenate it somehow?


No. Never heard of this happening. Make sure that the door stop at the bottom hinge is not bent and keeping the door from shutting all the way. I've seen this alot. Also, if you soak the gasket in hot water for 15 minutes or so, it will soften it up and lay flat when you install it.

The fan inside the refrigerator doesnt come on the coils freeze so its not refrigerant ,what makes the fan come on


The fan should be on anytime the compressor is running. Some fans shut off when you open the door, so push the door switch in and if the fan still doesn't come on, check to see if it's getting power. If it is replace the fan, if its not, it's probably the thermostat, located on the evap coil. It is a metalic cylicdrical switch, a couple inches tall.

Refrigerator side not sealing tightly when shut.


Sounds like you may need a new magnetic seal. It is worth the money to fix it, saving electric and your food items.

Good Luck

Door open all day Amana SXD22S2w


the evaporator is clogged with frost, just as if the defrost heater went out. Two options, remove all food and leave ref unplugged and doors open for half a day, or remove the back wall(evaporator cover) and defrost it with a hair dryer.

Temperature Problem - Amana (Maytag) Refrigerator Model AFD2535DES


This comes with a 1 yr warranty from date of purchase.  Look and see if there is a thick frost buildup on the back panel in the freezer section.  If no frost, shut the freezer door and feel for air flow out of the top middle vent in the fridge section.  I would remove that vent cover to make sure the damper is open.  If the damper is closed push it open then feel for air flow.  If no air flow is detected then the evaporator fan motor is bad which is a very commom problem on this model, in fact the most common problem.  If the damper is shut and when you hold it open you do feel air flow then the damper is bad.  Let me know what you find.

Amana bottom freezer refrigerator


could be the cause. check by putting a slip of paper between seal and cabinet and with door shut, check paper is gripped all round the door. if it is not, try warming the seal with a hairdryer in the faulty place and pulling the seal out gently. many of these seals are foamed in and impossible or v dificult to replace. check also that the hinges are not worn
