SOURCE: frost in freezer compartment

It is possible to get this build up in the return vents.  Check seals for any possiblilty of warm air getting into the fridge.  Warm air getting in will cause this.  For now use a hair dryer or some hot water to clear the vents.  Let me know what you find.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.

SOURCE: Freezer compartment ice build-up

too defrost just open the doors for a day with the unit unplugged. as far as why it is frosting up check door seals make sure they are all good and seal it up well and that should take care of it.

Unplug your refrigerator and open the rear panel in the back of freezer. Disconnect one whire on one end of the defrost heater. Tape the wire up and you'll be good to go no defrost. Sea Breeze

Amana ars2464bs quit working overnight. Freezer may have been left ajar, all night. The motor is hot and a clicking sound can be heard every couple of minutes. Frige and freezer room temp.


Unplug and manual defrost This happens when warm moist air is drawn into refrigerator. It freezes as frost and confuses the motherboard or defrost timer and put a heavy strain on compressor.. You also have a defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment. It is possible you can run forward to force defrost=> 67001036 Defrost Timer turn timer with small flathead screwdriver slowly clockwise.Click Here=> ARS2464B Amana Refrigerator Control Parts List Part 711 in top left photo can be found in the control panel inside the fresh food compartment. Try that and let me know if this helped, Thanks, Sea Breeze

personally i would replace any item in the home that cost more than $500 to repair,you can save that much in lower running cost for a more upto date version.but ....its your money.

DOESNT DEFROST AND THE FRIDGE SIDE NOT COLD


YOU CAN MANUALLY DEFROST THIS AND GET IT GOING UNTIL YOU GET IT REPAIRED. UNPLUG REFRIGERATOR AND LEAVE FREEZER DOOR OPEN FOR 12 HOURS OR MORE. OR UNPLUG REFRIGERATOR, TAKE THE LOWER PANEL OFF INSIDE FREEZER AND DEFROST WITH A HAIR DRYER. THIS SHOULD TAKE ABOUT 45 MINUTES. THE MOST COMMON REPAIR IS THE DEFROST THERMOSTAT. YOU PROBABLY HAVE A BAD ADAPTIVE DEFROST BOARD.

Amana #srd2555w bought from a friend in working condition. 3 yrs old brought home on its side. vacumed coils working 3 days then stopped cooling in fridge followed by ice build up and not working in...


You have a defrost problem. 3 parts: Timer (or "adaptive defrost control"), defrost heater and def. termination thermostat.Find the timer, it shoud be nehind the bottom front grille to the right on Amana (if you see a blck box under there with a sticker on it, it's the ADC model) turn the timer CW until it clicks. Take the back off the bottom of the freezer and listen. After 5-10 minutes if you hear the sound of the sound of water hitting a hot grill. If you hear this the heater and thermo are working and the problem is the timer/ADC. No hiss? Unplug fridge. Check thermo and heater for continuity. Replace the one that's open. If the heater's open, replace the thermo too: Maybe it didn't open soon emouhg and caused heater failure.

Our freezer is not cold, food is defrosting, ice is melting. Refrigerator is working, freezer is not. We hear compressor running continuously. This is a side by side Amana model with water & ice maker...


Look at the back of the freezer wall from inside the freezer. Is there frost on it? If there is, you need to replace one of the components of the defrost system. If there is no frost then you need to have a repair made to the sealed system, it is either out of gas or the compressor is running inefficiently

Amana side by freezer fan frozen will not run


Fan not operating could be caused by the excess frost buildup in the freezer coil. Defrost problems are related to a failure of the timer, heater, or defrost thermostat. Locate the timer and rotate the clutch head screw clockwise until you hear one audible click. That puts the system into defrost mode. If the system restarts after 18-22 minutes your problem is in the heater circuit. Heater and defrost thermostat is located behind the back wall of the freezer section.
