Amana ABL1927FES Refrigerator / pan drain / service manual
« on: August 03, 2012, 01:06:16 PM »
Hello folks:

I have an Amana (Maytag) refrigerator with a bottom mount freezer (pull out drawer).  I have a bad odor coming from the unit and after removing the back cover found its pan drain containing a dried up black residue which I believe to be the source of the odor.  The pan drain cannot be cleaned easily and it has cracks in it.  I wish to remove and replace it but I find that it is a difficult project as the pan drain will not come out easily as the fan assembly blocks its removal.  The fan assembly also seems difficult to remove.  :'(

I wonder if someone knows specifically how to remove the fan assembly and the pan drain so I can remove and replace it (which I believe is manufacturer part #12477402 made by WHIRLPOOL).

Also, I would like to know if someone knows how to acquire a free service manual download for this appliance.

Thanks so much for any replies :) .

When I enter your model number in the Maytag database it shows this service manual for your model, even though we don't have your model listed for it on our site.

Download it, look it over and let us know if that helps.

I'm running behind on service calls right now so I have not had time to look through it myself.

Post back and let us know, thanks for posting.  O0

The manual was helpful    O0 .  Page 36 of the manual indicates that you must raise the rear of the fridge 4 inches, lower the base pan, lift condenser fan shroud up and out of the way, and remove the drain pan.  This made sense as it was not removable without raising the rear of the fridge.  Now I feel confident to order the new drain pan and perform the job.  Again, I thank you for the manual.

Finally, I have another fridge.  I would like a manual for it as well while I am getting the none for the Amana.  It is similar to the other fridge, in that it is a bottom mount pull out drawer freezer except that it has a right hand fridge door instead of a left hand one.  It is a Whirlpool model GB9SHDXPS02.  Can you check for me whether the manual I downloaded from your post is the same manual I would use for this model?  Or would I need a different manual?  Thank you.

Glad you found the service manual helpful.  O0

The only thing I can come up with for the GB9SHDXPS02 is the tech sheet.
I have attached a copy of the tech sheet to this topic for you. Maybe you will find it helpful.

How did you raise the rear by 4 inches in order to lower the base pan? It looks like I would need two 4 x 4 blocks of wood but I don't know how to use them and unscrew the torx screws to release the base pan at the same time. Thanks for your help.

Where do you get the 4 x 4 wooden blocks? Can I buy them somewhere?

Buy a 4x4 wooden post at the lumberyard and cut them to length.
You maybe able to get the lumberyard to cut them for you too.

Did you worry about discharging the capacitor as recommended in the manual? If so, how? Thanks.
