Customer Question
I have an Amana...

I have an Amana bb20v1s and I need to remove and replace the adaptive defrost controller. The controller sits in a box on the coils underneath the lower freezer compartment. How is the box removed - it can’t come forward due the frame and it looks like it is blocked at the back by the evaporator coils?..

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Amana is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Model BB20V1S sr# ***** about 15 yrs old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I had a tech in to look at it - he couldn’t figure it out so I want to help him. I live in a relatively remote location.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

We have ordered the cold controller parts already but I suspect the adaptive defrost control may be defective as well.
