Customer Question

For the second time in two months my refrigerator/freezer is frosting up. It is an Amana refrigerator over freezer. The first time it happened, I shut it down for a couple of days. It ran fine after the shut down and cleanup. Why is it frosting? It is a frost free combination.

It has a defost issue, either the defrost timer is bad or the computer (depending on the model of the unit since you failed to supply that) or it could be the defrost thermostat or the defrost heater, you will need a ohm/voltage meter to troubleshoot the issue and I will need the model number of the unit to help you further. In most cases if you dont have a meter to troubleshoot on an Amana refrigerator you can just replace the timer and the bi metal and be ok but again I will need the model number to give you part numbers.
