You have a defrost problem. You will need to replace your defrost system. Before you put the parts on, you need to completely thaw out your unit. You can do this by leaving it open all day or night or by placing a fan close to it with the door open. We have parts, so please give us a call and we'll be sure to ge the right parts out to you right away. We look forward to hearing back from you.

I have an Amana ABB2527DES and the bottom freezer door is not closing tight. Any suggestions?


Inspect door seals for shifting, bunching, and tears and adjust or replace them. Inspect shelving in compartment to make sure of proper positioning. Inspect door baskets for item protruding over the top and holding door back. Inspect door for loose hinges allowing doors to sag.

How can I adjust an upright freezer door ?


Hello there,
It is always the feet and their adjustment and floor must be level
From the user guide it says

;The freezer must have all bottom corners resting firmly on
a solid floor. The floor must be strong enough to support
a fully loaded freezer.
NOTE:It is VERY MPORTANT for your freezer to be level in order to function properly. If the freezer is not leveled during installation, the door may be misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems.
To level Upright Models:
After discarding crating screws and wood base, use a carpenter's level to level the freezer from front-to-back. Adjust the plastic leveling feet in front, half a bubble higher, so that the door closes easily when left halfway open. ;

Refrigerator freezer stuck


I am guessing you are saying the freezer door is stuck closed and will not open? If this is the case you may need to pour some warm water around the seal until it is loose enough to open. After getting it open check the seal around the door, if there are places the seal is not completely sealed, then the seal needs replaced. Sometimes when the seal fails to seal properly moisture in the air seeps in and freezes next to the seal, eventually freezing the door to the box.

Our N369B fridge freezer has a large amount of ice clinging to the upper back of the fridge how do we stop this happening?


Your freezer door is not closing properly. if it is not on wheels then make sure the bottom nut that also holds the front wheels or slider in place is tight. Also maybe have the seals replaced and check door alignment on both doors. You will of course have to defrost the freezer.

Freezer is building up frost and refrigerator is not cold enoough


Almost certainly, you have a leak within the freezer compartment.

The cooling system will use a divertor valve to concentrate coolant to the fridge or freezer compartment - whichever is necessary to maintain selected temperatures.

If a seal within either compartment is compromised and leaks then the coolant will be excessively diverted to that area in an attempt to lower it's temperature - the other section will suffer since more coolant is diverted to the weaker area; the weaker area that is being excessively cooled will also have more moist air circulating, hence moisture will contribute to a build up of ice - exacerbating the problem.

Ensure that both fridge and freezer doors are closing properly, if they appear to be secure then also check that the seals are airtight - there should be no ice accumulating around them.

You might need to re-align the doors, or less likely, replace the door seals.

Please reply if you require further clarification or help.

Amana ARB2117BW - Bottom Freezer Door Won't Stay Sealed


This problem was posted in the wrong section. My model didn't have it's own, so its in ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - perhaps you could create a section for it.

As it turns out, I looked more closely at the baskets inside. We had noticed that if the top basket was slid all the way forward when we closed the door that it would close better. So I looked to see if they or the slides were out of alignment. They seemed ok, but then I saw that the way the bottom basket was hanging didn't seem right - it was not quite nestled into it's retainer slot. I took the baskets out and turned the bottom one around. It fit perfectly into it's retainer slot. I then replaced the top one (it was already in correctly) and closed the door. It sealed correctly the first time. I tested it several times after that and it sealed tightly. Closing the top door did not make it unseal as it had done before.

Ice


it is getting moisture from the refrigerator side.

check closely the door gasket of the refrigerator side, look for cracks and openings and see if it is not sealing properly.

another place to look at is the plastic trimmings around the refrigerator side between teh inner wall and the outside edges.

sometimes they have cracks and openings and moisture could seeped in and makes ice at the lower part of the freezer section.

Amana 22 side-by-side refrigerator, freezer door opens slightly


There are three possibilities to this problem:

1. Door seal which should be magnetic is faulty.
2. Ice maker caddy (container) has not socketed properly into ice maker rear drive tang.
3. Door stay closed plastic hing pieces are damaged. These are tapered pieces that fit in hinge area that allow door weight to help close and hold door. Some are black in color and some are white. As far as I know they are interchangeable.
