Question about Amana Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a side by side amana fridge and the bottom of the fridge which consists of 2 drawers and a bottom shelf freezes whatever is in or on them. I know the air comes from the feeezer but even turning both dials down to level 2 of 7, it does not change anything as far as the fridge freezing everything on the bottom. The top and middle are fine but I cannot use that bottom section at all unless I want everything to have the consistency of a hockey puck. Please help me figure out why my fridge is acting in this manner.

SOURCE: Lowest shelf and crisper drawers freeze food

Hello there,
When you are experiencing ice build up in your refrigerator, it simply is due to a faulty defrost unit. The defrost unit is composed o9f the defrost timer, defrost thermostat and the defrost heater. Once the freezer is building up ice, the defrost unit turns on the heater, then the defrost thermostat turns off the compressor while the defrost timer, settings the routine timing for the activity.
Once a component out of the three develops a fault, the routine is stopped and then ice begins to build up in the back of the freezer or at the bottom depending on the type of refrigerator it is.
The solution to the problem is for you to have the defrost timer, defrost heater and defrost thermostat tested, that way you will be able to tell the faulty component and replace it with a new one.
To carry out the testing and replacing of these components, please read this tips, it will guide you on testing the components and replacing them.

Fridge is freezing everything


Check the top of the inside of the fridge. There is usually a flap door mechanism that sometimes falls off or sticks. This regulates the temp in the fridge.

Fridge looses temperature


Make sure the two vents from the top of the fridge that run into the freezer are not blocked or obstructed in anyway, that's what the problem was in ours. Also do not allow ice to build up on the vents in the freezer.

Why is everything in the refrigerator freezing, and, why doesn't the door & doors (side-by-side) close tight?


Sounds like your door or doors are being held open by an object inside. This is causing the cooling system to run constantly and thus freezing items in the fridge. Check that the shelf under the ice drawer is overpacked. the dispenser runs inro things on the shelf right under that storage compartment occasionally on my fridge. Hope that helps.

MY FRIDGE SEEMS TO FREEZE FOODS NO MATTER WHAT SHELF OR DRAWER THE FOOD IS IN


Put the duals back to factory setting. Always the middle number and it is always highlighted. If they already are then turn the fridge only down a setting. The freezer always stays at factory I think 3 or 4 on Amanas.

Fridge is freezing food


Make sure nothing fell below your crisper, deli drawer section. There are some air return vents below them and if they get partially obstructed would allow cold air to pool in the bottom of the fridge.
Make sure your freezer control did not get turned up too high.
Also you may want to check with the manufacturer as they did have some issues with some of the bottom mount models exhibiting this problem and they developed a repair kit for them.

Amana Bx22s5W freezes food in the crispers


I've had the same issue with an Amana BX21TL. In my case, the problem was that the various air flow adjustments were all directing the cold air to the bottom of the fridge, underneath the vegetable crispers.

What I've done to fix this was:
1- Made sure there was a tight seal between the vent opening at the back of the fridge (at about mid-height) and the rubber/plastic duct that directs air to the meat/cheese drawer.
2- Made sure that the adjustable opening at the back of the meat/cheese drawer was fully open.
3- Made sure that the adjustable opening at the back of both vegetable crispers were fully open.

Hope this helps.

Amana ARB1917CSR ? Refrigerator freezing food, (bottom) freezer working OK


I picked up on something you wrote within your problem description. "got the thermostat replaced under warranty" & "that worked for a while ". back in Aug of 2002. It's August of 2008 and your thermostat may have failed again. 6 years later... not so unusual. Anyway, since your fridge has a bottom freezer, there must be a pass thru between the freezer and the fridge compartment in an area you haven't examined yet. The fridge gets cold air delivered from the freezer to keep it cold thru this pass thru and many fridges have an adjustable flap that allows you to limit that cold air flow. Time permitting, can you do a more thorough examination of the fridge area ( side walls near crisper drawers perhaps?) or better than that, remove the drawers and look for that air duct pass thru. Once located, if it does not have an adjustable damper, try a little duct tape to limit the amount of cold air from migrating into the fridge compartment. Other options: Can you contact Amana customer support directly and get their support? That particular model has been discontinued by Amana but they should be able to support it. Not sure I added anything to what you already know. Gave it a shot thou...

Bottom vegetable/fruit drawer freezing fruit


to the left of the bottom drawer is a veg/meat slide switch.make sure it is all the way on veg.if it is on meat,it opens a small doorway to the freezer and lets the cold air in and will freeze the food in the bottom drawer.in some cases,you will need to remove the drawer and shelf and then take apart the doorway.ball up some putty and jam it it the hole to completely seal it off
