Question about Amana ARB9058CS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have an Amana BC20TW refrigerator with a bottom freezer. It seems to be running all the time. I raised the temperature dial to make it warmer and it still runs too much. Put velcro on the bottom freezer door to make sure it was securely shut and it still runs too much. I think I feel cool air coming from behind the refrigerator. What is going on? Please help.

Accuracy is important --Use a digital thermometer to monitor freezer and fridge temps. Fridge should be around 40 and freezer around zero and then take it from there and draw conclusions

SOURCE: temperature

Lower numbers are warmer temps.  Get an outdoor thermometer and put it in the fridge.  It should read about 40 degrees F if you've left the door closed for an hour or so.  Don't worry about the freezer too much.  It should be at 0 F or so.  Generally, leaving the settings at 2 or 3 is right on most units.

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.

Too cold


Refrigerators and freezers have a thermostat control inside the refrigerator compartment. It is normally some type of dial with numbers and a graphic indicating warmer or colder.

Place a thermometer inside the cold box. Wait one hour and record the temperature. Adjust the thermostat one or two numbers warmer, then wait 12 hours and record the temperature.

The interior temperature for a refrigerator must be below 40F for food safety. A good range is 35-38F.

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    the backpressure or suction pressure varies with the load and the ambient temoerature of the unit. best way to make sure that your charge is correct is to pull refrigerant out and evacuate aand weight in new refrigerant with a scaloe.

    Freezer not cold enough


    Begin by turning the freezer temperature setting dial to a lower setting. Then wait a few hours to see if your problem is fixed. If that does not correct the problem you probably need to have the coolant system recharged. That requires special equipment so you will have to call in a repair person.

    Help, no water but have ice out of door on amana side by side.


    The freezer temperature dial is set too cold and it is causing the water to freeze in the tube right where it enters the freezer section.If you turn the temperature selector one or two numbers warmer for the freezer it will help.
    You will also have to turn the box off and let the freezer thaw real good so that the line will thaw. Once this has been done, it should work fine.
