Amana Refrigerators - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


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. https://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/threads/amana-defrost-thermostat-installation-location.27405/

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

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?

Theres a few solutions that could fix this. 1st I would let the unit thaw out could have ice built up on the air passage that wont allow the air to travel freely. Some caused by not having a good seal around the door.

Always fault find and repair the fault before replacing a board. Without sight of the machine, I can only guess at the compressor.

go buy a new one

May be the relay on the compressor. Is it cooling properly?

Make sure that the passage between the freezer and fridge is not blocked
