Amana Refrigerator Error Codes

Amana Refrigerator Error Code Door Alarm

One common issue users may encounter with Amana refrigerators is the Door Ajar Alarm, indicated by a persistent alarm sound and, on the control panel, the Door Ajar icon. This feature is designed to alert users when the refrigerator or freezer door has been left open for an extended period (typically 2-5 minutes, depending on the model) while the cooling function is active.

  1. Check for Open Doors:

    • The first step is to ascertain if any refrigerator or freezer door has been left ajar. The alarm will sound for 2 minutes, repeating every 2 minutes until the doors are closed.
    • To temporarily mute the alarm while cleaning the refrigerator, touch any button on the control panel. Note that the Door Ajar icon will still be displayed.
  2. Ensure Proper Door Closure:

    • Confirm that all doors are closing correctly. The door ajar symbol may appear if the doors do not make proper contact with the door switch.
    • Check for any obstructions such as bins, shelves, or food packages that might hinder the doors from closing securely.
  3. Level Your Refrigerator:

    • Verify that the refrigerator is level both front to back and side to side. This is essential to ensure the door switch makes proper contact.
    • Ensure the floor beneath the refrigerator is also level. If not, shims may be required for leveling.
  4. Power Cycling:

    • If issues persist, try cycling power to the refrigerator. This can be done by turning it off, waiting a few minutes, and then turning it back on.
