Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have an Amana refrigerator, freezer on the bottom (model BX20RW) that is over 10 years old and has begun to ice around the door of the freezer as if the seal around the door is not working properly. Is this a likely problem and can I replace the seal myself?

Yes it sounds like the gasket is eithre dirty or wore out, try to clean it and then put a little vaseline on the gasket to rejuvienate it.

Amana bottom refrigerator bx20rw, how do i replace the defrost thermostat


This link will show an exploded view of the area. Part number 6 is the defrost thermostat. Cut and paste into your browser.

Basically you need to empty the freezer, remove the drawer and back panel, unclip the thermostat and replace, there are two wires and should be the same on the new one, use caution not to damage the evaporator coils.

My model is ARB 1914 CC nine years old.


your "damper vent door" located between the refrigerator and freezer compartments is frozen open or the cold adjustment contron in the refrige is bad and not powering the door as you change the temp set for the refrige and leaving it open,if the door is frozen from ice/frost just de-ice it with a hair dryer and then set the temp adjust and see if it opens and closes with any adjustment

Snow building up around ice maker opening


Check to make sure the dispenser door is closing all the way and I mean ALL the way.
GE has had issues with the solenoid rusting out on those units and not letting the door close all the way.

Amana BX20RW Refrigerator slightly warm freezer not freezing


Check the thermostat, to make sure that it is working properly. The theremostat is a long wire in the top of the freezer up near the fan. If that is bad it will not let your freezer cool correctly

11 year old amana bottom freezer icemaker drips water when filling tray


Hello dunc444444
Welcome,
You said, Bottom freezer works fine, but upper refrigerator has no cold air

Is your freezer so full that it is packed to the top especially in the rear?
Refrigerators and freezers share the air from the compressor and travel through vents in the rear of the freezer and fridge.
Sometimes it can effect the cooling in the fridge if the freezer articles block the vents!


The water overfilling in the ice maker is an ice maker problem only.
When we install an ice maker there is a short white plastic tube that we push through the rear
hole of the fridge which supply's the water to the maker, the outside water line attaches to this.
That tube we push through the fridge must go in till it stops. And empties in to a little sistran at the rear of the ice maker. Make sure it did not sip out or backwards a little when you may have moved
rolled the fridge out to clean under it!


Also you need periodically to remove the front grill down in front of the fridge and gently run a refrigerator brush under the coils to clean out the dust that may block air flow over the coils.(the coils are metal black tubes that run back and forth along the bottom of your fridge.
The vacuum will not reach in to that tight space. That's why they make a special brush for this chore.
Let me know how you do?
