We have a 9 year old side by side Amana fridge which we are wondering
what to do with. I thought I'd seek some advice. I have a
temperature gauge in both compartements, Freezer stays at around 10
degrees F and refrigerator reads at about 40 degrees F. These seem to
be the limits of the "acceptable" range. The compressor runs
constantly and I had to "up" the controls for both compartments to
number "6" on a scale of 1 to 7 to maintain the temperatures.
Technically I guess it ain't broke.. so don't fix it.. but I'm trying
to get an idea of how long to expect it to go before it dies. What do
you think I have.. a couple of months / years? I have no idea.
I don't want to consider repair as it will be not worth it, just as
soon buy a new one. A tech looked at it a year ago and found a leak
in the evap. coil and charged it back up and said it would last 5
years or so. The coil is aluminum and not replacable.
Thanks in advance for any advice..
