Resolved Question:

have an amana 48"w side by side refrigerator (S148 DA03) about 10 yrs old. Problem: Refrigerator is too cold at top and bottom, i.e. milk on top shelf and produce in bottom drawers freezes and shelving in the middle is ok or too warm (mid 40s). Technician replace/repaired ice chute flap on freezer door (said too much humidity getting in causing problems). Then they replaced thermistor ? and evaporator. Still has not fixed problem but am hesitant to pay for more service calls. Any idea what part of a refrigerator might be broken if air temp in a refrigerator is very uneven (it is loaded with a normal amount of food, not packed)?

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.


The most likely cause of your issue is the control board PC/low-voltage,

the real problem is it's showing it is no longer available, they have stopped manufacturing them, if the technician can get a hold of one this is most likely the issue, the thermistors sends a signal to this board to open and close the damper assembly which apparently isn't working correctly, you may want to consider at this point if they can't get the part replacing the refrigerator unfortunately, hope this helps thanks, Bryan
