Amana ARB8057CSR Bottom Freezer, freezer warms up then starts freezing again

11 March 2012 - 03:34 PM

My 9 year old Amana is confusing me. A few weeks ago it started making a 'buzzing' noise. Then I noticed that the ice cubes were melting in the freezer. Whoops - that's a clue that there's a problem. A couple of days later I looked again in the freezer,and the entire ice cube compartment had turned into a solid block of ice. It would seem that the ice cubes had all melted to water, then the freezer started freezing again.

I've put a remote thermometer in, and see that the temp ranges from +2C (36F) to -20C(-4F) . It was - 20 earlier this morning, now it's back up to -10. It makes me think the compressor system is fine because it is quite capable of chilling, and the problem is either the compressor won't start when it's supposed to, or there is a "sticky thermostat" if that's possible.

Any suggestions?


Miele Dishwasher G 851 Plus - Intake/Drain flashing

27 November 2011 - 12:35 PM

The intake/drain light on my 7 year old Miele DW G851 Plus is lighting up. I've talked to Miele and they sent me drawings to take apart the circulating pump, which I did - and put it back together. Didn't really see anything that would be a problem.

The DW seems to be able complete a rinse and hold cycle, but not a wash cycle, before faulting.

From this site, I have the Diagnostics for the G851, and I think I'm seeing a fault F05 "Water drainage failure, heater level switch".

Since the unit seems to drain ok, I think it might be the heater level switch.

Does this make sense? Can you help me figure out how to prove this one way or another?
