The freezer part (bottom) of this Amana is working fine, the refrigerator part (top) is not colling any more. I checked the freezer part and it was full of ice. I got the advise to defrost it. I did it and everything seems to be working fine. 2 weeks later, same problem, again full of ice, defrost it and its back to normal. I understood that defroster system doesn't work. which parts should I replace in order to fix this problem?
ANSWER Hello Tamir D. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
