Amana Freezer Troubleshooting and Problems
1. FREEZER IS NOT TURNED ON
Make sure the freezer hasn’t accidentally been turned off. If you’re not sure where the switch is, refer to your freezer’s use and care guide.
2. POWER SOURCE ISSUE
Make sure the power cord is plugged into a 3-prong outlet that’s using a 115-Volt, 60-Hz., AC-only 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded electrical supply. It’s recommended that your refrigerator/freezer is connected to a separate circuit serving only your refrigerator/freezer. Don’t use an extension cord or an outlet that can be turned off by a switch. Check to make sure the outlet is working by plugging in a lamp or other small appliance.
If that’s not the issue, make sure the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped and a fuse hasn’t blown. Replace the blown fuse, if necessary.
3. FREEZER IS NOT IN THE PROPER LOCATION
The freezer shouldn’t be installed near an oven, radiator, or other heat source, or anywhere the temperature will fall below 40°F. This could interfere with the freezer temperature and could also cause frost build-up.
4. LARGE AMOUNT OF UNFROZEN FOOD HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE FREEZER
It can take several hours for the freezer temperature to stabilize after this.
5. DOOR OR LID HAS BEEN OPEN FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME OR IS OPENED FREQUENTLY
This can change the temperature of the freezer. It also lets in excess moisture, which can cause frost build-up. Keep the lid or door closed as much as possible.
6. DOOR LID IS NOT SEALING PROPERLY
You can check this by placing a dollar bill or a piece of paper between the seal and the freezer and pulling it out. If it pulls out easily, with little to no tension, your door is likely not sealing properly. A door lid that doesn’t seal properly can change the temperature of the freezer and cause frost build-up.
7. DOOR LOCK IS PREVENTING DOOR OR LID FROM CLOSING
If your freezer has a lock mechanism, it could be in the way of the door closing. Unlock the freezer by holding the key in the lock while turning and then taking the key out. Clear any frost or debris from the lock. Open the door or lid, and then close and lock again.
8. FREEZER IS NOT LEVEL
If your freezer isn’t level, the lid or door might not seal properly. Level the freezer from side to side and front to back.
