SOURCE: I have an Amana BRF20V1S refrig w/bottom freezer.

Good day,
Tricky problem.
The fresh food compartment gets it's cooling from the freezer.
When running zero degree air is blown up the back wall and out to the fresh food compartment thru a modulating thermostat.
This modulating tstat is continuously opening and closing .

I have seen many of these where the spring that tries to keep the flap on this device closed, has popped off.
If you can find the spring, it usually can be reinstalled, if not, you have to replace the whole control.

If that control is working O.K. another problem is at play.
During cooler weather, and light usage, the machine tends to stay off longer.
This causes the air in the machine to stratify. Warmer air rising, colder air falling. Thus, the warmer air reaches the modulator at the top of the machine, and throttles it wide open.
On the next running cycle, it allows a large volume of near zero degree air to enter the fresh food compartment.

Here are two possible solutions. The first cannot be verified.
A user claims that the return air vents behind the crispers got blocked by various items from food handling, and prevented the cold air at the bottom from returning to the freezer.
Your using a foam at the bottom would only make the matter worse.

The second option, would be to replace the modulating thermostat, and test for results. It's a pricey part.

Hopes this gets you some results..
Jack....

SOURCE: Amana AFI2538AES The refrigerator portion keeps

Our Amana afi2538aes is doing the same thing. Had a repairman out. He called tech support at Amana. They had him adjust the "thermistors" but it is colder than ever running at 28-30degrees in the fresh food compartment despite being set at 46 degrees. Tech support also recommended installing some sort of "ice bin seal kit to take care of the problem" according to our invoice from repairman. Repairman was told that the ice bin in the fresh food compartment puts cold air out (to keep the ice frozen) which freezes the food in the fresh food compartment. I called Amana and the rep I spoke to said he couldn't find record of this being a problem with the model but tech support told our repairman "we've had a lot of problems with this happening."

PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES


Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.
Freezer on Top Models
First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

Fans and compressor are running but is not cooling. 5 years old. evaporator coils are not getting cold


Good day,
If both fans are running as well as the compressor, then it is one of these possibilities. Either the system has leaked all of the refrigerant out, or the system has an internal restriction, or lastly the compressor has failed internally with a bad valve ect.
All of the above items will require the attention of a qualified tech who has the proper tools and equipment to determine your problem.

Note: If the machine is under 5 years of age, then the factory warranty would be in effect. You would have to call the selling or servicing dealer to have it corrected, but it would be free.

Fruits & Veggies are freezing in both lower frig compartments


Good day,
This problem appears in spades this time of year, every year.
The problem becomes more severe when the temperatures in the house cools down and is made even worse if the usage of the machine becomes lighter.

It occurs when the machine is off, not on.
There is an open vent, near the bottom, between the freezer compartment and the fresh food compartment. This opening or vent is necessary when the machine is running, so that the air pumped into the top of the fresh food section, can return to the freezer compartment. This is by design.
Now,
When the machine is off, the zero degree air from the freezer compartment. can drift into the fresh food compartmnet and drop the temps near the bottom to below freezing.
Off time increases substantialy at this time of year.
Some have even recommended turning the controls colder to offset the problem, but I've no proof it works well, or even a little.
SXS and top freezer models experience it more than bottom freezer models.
