Amana Bottom Mount Refrigerators Low or High Ambient Temperature Installation

{0 Comments}

Lower ambient air temperature reduces the condensing temperature and therefore reduces the temperature of the liquid entering the evaporator. The increase in refrigeration effect due to operation in a lower ambient results in a decrease in power consumption and run time. At lower ambients there is a reduction in cabinet heat leak which is partially …

Amana Bottom Mount Refrigerators Air in System Symptoms

{0 Comments}

This can result from a low side leak or improper servicing. If a leak should occur on the low side, the temperature control would not be satisfied; thus, continuous running of the compressor would result. The compressor would eventually pump the low side into a vacuum drawing air and moisture into the system. Air and …

Amana Bottom Mount Refrigerators Restriction Symptoms

{0 Comments}

Always remember refrigeration (cooling) occurs on the low pressure side of a partial restriction (obviously a total restriction will completely stop the circulation of refrigerant and no cooling will take place). Physically feel the refrigeration lines when a restriction is suspected. The most common place for a restriction is at the drier-filter or at the …

Amana Bottom Mount Refrigerators Charging

To charge system: 1. Close valves “A” to vacuum pump and “C” to vacuum gauge and “E” to low side manifold gauge. 2. Set scale on dial-a-charge cylinder for corresponding HFC134a pressure reading. 3. Open valve “F” to charging cylinder and let exact amount of refrigerant flow from cylinder into system. Close valve. Low side …
