Comment:
Came home from work to find food in freezer had defrosted. No indication up until then that it wasn't working. Could hear it going in the back and would turn on and off as usual. Would have cost $600 to repair due to corrosion that caused leaking. Not my idea of a great fridge. Already the front plastic on one of the shelves had broken off and one of the plastic compartments on the door had cracked. My last fridge lasted 15 years and the one before than 20. I expected more than 6 - 7 years for this one - it cost enough VERY disappointed

Comment:
Freezer drain pipe failed after two years and after the warranty had expired. On-line reports confirm that my experience was not unique. I spent nearly $200.00 to fix the problem and have a warped floor board where water seeped out. Amana refused to pay for the part even though it has manufactured a fix for the problem. I relied on Consumer reports in picking this refrigerator and will not do so again.

In a word, do not buy an Amana refrigerator, period.<br /><br />I own a 12 month old Amana as above, it lasted exactly 13 months before the mother board that controls the temperature gave out, costing me 500$ to replace. 3 months later, the fan gave out costing another 250$. <br />I called Amana 800# and they could not have been less interested. They just said out of warranty, sucka and that was that. Amana fridges are just garbage, sorry to say, but true. Seriously, don't say you were not warned if you buy an Amana.
