Hello, Stephen -I am not finding relevant information for you. I do not own an Alpenlite Fifth Wheel RV myself.I suspect you will receive relevant instructions from another owner. For that, if you have not already posted your question on an online RV discussion forum, I suggest you do so. These are links to some forums. Registration is required for each, but they are all free:iRV2: Tips & Tricks is probably the best category for your refrigerator (RVUSA): the RV Tips & Tricks and the Towables category would be the best for you to post your question.Best wishes

Hello Dennis; My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician. You did not provide a model number. So, I am going to speak in general. It sounds like you have a bad or stuck contact switch. Or, you ice dispenser handle is broken and activating the dispenser. You contact switch will look like the following: 25331098-tf0pl124dzd5m1czyqgpxhkh-4-0.jpg There are two slots on the bottom of the dispenser frame for a flat head screw driver. Pop the bottom out. The rest of the frame is held by plastic tabs. Push in the sides to remove the frame. Ground yourself by touching something that is steal. Static electricity will knock out a board. Remove the board. You will see the contact switch. Send me the model number and I can be more specific. Go into the following web site and put in your model number for diagrams and the part number.

The tray that collect water is full. Remove it slowly and empty into the sink. Don't forget to put it back in the fridge. You need to do this time to time.

I would go for 40 on the suction and 150 discharge, or divide the locked rotor current by 6 and charge so the current is 1/6 of the locked rotor current of the compressor, or by temperature/pressure relation 110* discharge and 35* suction, or get the suction line sweating. The best way is to remove all the refrigerant and then weigh the refrigerant the system is designed for on these critical charge appliances.

This appears to be a reference to the defrosting component of a Amana freezer. Let's just assume that it is not a problem with the freezer door seals. (If the seal is not a tight seal when the door is closed, you have melting occurring and the the freezer trying to compensate by refreezing, yielding a lot of icing in the compartment. This is what happens if you over stuff the freezer and the freezer door does not quite close firmly, as well.) The Amana defrost thermostat might be defective or have become dislodged for some reason. If defective, it would require replacement. But let's say it is not defective. The defroster didn't work when there was too much ice buildup. This could cause the molex connector in the thermostat to contract, breaking the connect activating it. One user "fixed" this problem by putting aluminum foil inside the molex connector. If the theromostate became dislodged from its "attachment point", one would need to know the model of the freezer know where that point was. There are videos describing replacement of the thermostat in some Amana's. You can find such on YouTube. I just can't promise that replacement would fix the problem.

Check first that there is no leak coming through your gasket a good way is stick a flashlight inside your freezer turn out the lights if you see and beam or light the seal is cracked or must be replaced the check your coils where Freon is supplied if there not cold you must to a pressure test while adding Freon also check for leaks by spraying water on your coils . It's a matter of mathematical elimination also check thermostat if your Amana is under 10 years old look for the fault codes and get someone that can read what faults are being detected

ice maker has stop making ice, but you can hear the water going to it, i think it might be frozen up. what is the best way to thaw it out with out turning the whole fridge off.

Amana 22.6 cu.... • Answered on Sep 03, 2019

Possibly the filter both air and water. Make sure the lines aren't frozen. If the unit has an ice maker you can warm the lines with a blow dryer ( warm on low fan) make sure it's level. Is the trim gasket around the door worn?
