obscure amana refrigerator is p@#!&*ssing me off!!!

7 posts in this topic

i've been working on this thing off and on for a couple of months now- i know, i could have built a new one by now- and the problem is all the airflow is coming out the bottom vents and none is coming out of the top, so the bottom shelf and the fruit and veggie bins are freezing and the top shelf is around 50 degrees. i've replaced the fan and played with the controls and nothing seems to make a difference. if anyone can help me with this thing i'd much appreciate it.

Hey there, Billyjoebob. How's yer Momma 'n 'em?

I'd light this candle by verifying that the evaporator fan motor is running.

Also, I need you to get down off that stump in the back yard where you're abusing those farm animals and re-check that model number 'cuz it don't pull up nuffin' werf a sheeit. Need the P-number, too.

a.) i ain't bin abusin' no farm aminals, and, 2.) evin if i was i would consider it more afectionatin' than abusin.

as far as the frigerator- yes the fans a purrin like a kitten and the blades spinnin' round real purty and that model # is exactin' as can be- i even pulled the sticker off so i could get a reeal good look at it.

and you're right- it ain't comin up nowhere's on google or amana's site either, hence the "obscure" part of my post. the repairman( the one that was here 3 times and couldn't get it working right) said that it was made in canada by GE and that amana just stuck their name on it.

Well, if you pulled the sticker with model number off then that's your problem, you're not giving us the correct model# most likely.

Does that sticker have a serial# and P-number (Manufactureing #)? If not this is just a feature label with a partial model#

The model#/serial# tag will be a metal tag down at bottom of refrig door opening, might have to remove kickplate grill to see. Or it may be a stick on tag on the refrigerator wall beside one of the crisper bins or on refrigerator roof.

Or maybe you didn't check what you typed:

Here the # you give: tcx1iacbww (Definitely missing a # after the 1)

Here the closest I find: TCX18IACBRWW (and I wonder, is it really an Amana, this comes up as a G.E.)

Hey, Billyjobob, is this a side-by-side or a top-and-bottom, or a bottom freezer fridge?

this is a bottom mount freezer.

TCX18IACBWW

serial # is:

i don't see anything that says P-#.

Definitely NOT an Amana-- this is a GE fridge like Willie said.

I'm betting your top diffuser (item 51) is stuck closed. That'll keep any cold air from getting to the top of the beer compartment.
