Hello Racinfrogs,

You are most likely looking at a serious FROST blockage...

FIRST thing to check... YOUR DEFROST pan...

If dry... you have found your TROUBLE..

A serious FROST
blockage can be caused by SEVERAL
air intrusion issues... Ice cube stuck: holding chute door open... or a pizza box holding any door ajar... Perhaps even a failed (or poorly aligned) DOOR GASKET...

(all these will be burdening your defrost pan: lots of water)

FINALLY... and very common
A DEFROST CIRCUIT FAILURE.
(this will be manifested by a DRY defrost pan)

Easiest... Part to check & change

Your REFRIGERATOR has a defrost timer...
Check here for replacement part (wp67001036)
and INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO...
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-timer-defrost-wp67001036-ap6010261.html

In addition to their instructions.. I always SUGGEST
you should take pictures and notes of what COLOR
wire goes where... BEFORE getting in trouble...!!

There are only 2 (two) other parts to the defrost circuit...
EASY once you understand...
- Thermal switch to keep defrost temperature v-low
- heater element (ungoverned can ruin food/plastic).

Hope this helps... ELSE comment me
back BEFORE getting in trouble.

Pricewise (using part number) also check eBay

The bar should be down in ice making mode, if you ever noticed the bar rises upon ejection of ice cubes from the tray, and falls to its postion hovering above the ice bin, as the bin gets full the bar cant lower to the postion indicating a full bin and it willl stop ice making.

Your defrost heater or defrost thermostat may be bad. Test defrost heating element for continuity. If heater is good, replace the defrost thermostat. In most cases, replacing both is advisable.

Abesolutely a bad defrost heater. it is too weak to defrost the ice completely, therefore it falls off the coils and freezes on the drain tray. If you dont want to replace the heater you can also just install a drain tube heater that wires into the evaperator fan, it will run constantly as the fan does to keep water from freezing in the tube or tray. All parts can be purchased at http://www.reliableparts.com/ using your model number.

auto defrost might be on. turn the dial until the compressor clicks on. it's usually located under the fridge behind the front grate.

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.

Check the plastic drainage tray atop the coils at the bottom underneath. You probably will find a smelly stew waiting to be drained into the sink. Follow up by scrubbing the tray clean.

That can be two things.

1. Condensation

2. The evaporator is in there behind the grill with a small fan. It freezes up and has a defrost which causes water. That water runs into a drain, your drain is blocked or the fan isn't working.

28 years old, you are due for a new one.

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.
