The freezer goes down to 0 and up to 20 on defrost cycle foods freeze well no problem but ice creams are very soft. Thermostats on refrigerator set on 4 and freezer is also set on 4 can the problem be the defrost timer kit?
Answer Hello Moe,
This is more likely to be the defrost thermostat 10442411 but can also be due to the coils needing to be cleaned or air flow restricted around the unit or the defrost timer. The timer would not be the first suspect in this complaint. You need to make sure the evaporator fan motor 12013209Q can be stopped and will start back up to full speed on its' own.
Where is the defrost timer located on my Amana QSD26VW?
Answer Hello Jay,
Remove the toe grille. You will find the timer box mounted in front of condenser, just left of center.
Evaporator fan only works after heater thermostat is bypassed and one side of the common lead of of the thermostat is open and fan will not start up normally
This issue will be caused by a faulty defrost thermostat. The evaporator fan will not work on this unit unless the defrost thermostat is closed.
I need a thermo disk on the evaporator coil and can't find the part number.
Answer Steve, the defrost thermostat listed for your model is part number R0161088. Thanks!
Where is the defrost timer located?
Answer Jon, your model does not use a defrost timer. Your model uses a jazz board, which now comes in a kit as part number W10503278. The electronic control is located in the control section of the refrigerator side of your appliance. Hope this helps you. Thanks.
Refrigerator gets too cold on the bottom. Side by side freezer not cold enough (18 to 37 degrees) most of the time--occasionally down to 0 degrees for short periods.
Answer Hello Cathy. Check the evaporator fan motor to make sure it is running properly, and make sure all the vents and returns for the air flow inside the unit are good. Thanks.
