Hello,

Does anyone have ideas about what to do with an Amana AFD02535DEW french door refrigerator with bottom pullout freezer that has a warm fidge? The freezer is making ice, staying cold. I cleaned the bottom grill, it was caked with fuzz and dust. Not sure what to do. Thanks!

You could summon the tech sheet from underneath the bottom of the fridge cabinet, behind the front kickplate, upper r.h. side
Perform the test for the motorized damper that is located in the rear of the refrigerator section. Quite common for these units to fail, and somewhere there is a kit to change those over to a better quality damper ass'y.
Double check that model # as it doesn't work for me, and we can provide you a link to the part

i reckon i find the evaporator fan failed on these units more often than the damper, but either way easy diagnosis, easy fix.
access the fan by removing the back wall of frezzer section and test voltage to fan motor...120v but no spin = bad motor


the new motor is redesigned- much more substantial

Yup...looks like an AFD2535DEW...

No fan motor spin, no cold air moving from freezer to refrigerator (and back again)...

Something else I see from time-to-time...customers cramming the bottom shelf so full of stuff that it blocks the open damper, and doesn't allow enough cold air to get into Fridge to cool properly...but my money's on the fan motor, here.
