Thanks to Owner-Manuals.com! This manual was exactly what I needed. As Amana was purchased by Maytag and later by Whirlpool, there was no way to receive it from their websites. I was lucky to find this resource.
Good quality instructions manual. Very useful to me. Quick and excellent service from Owner-Manuals... Thanks !!!

MAINTENANCE OF YOUR REFRIGERATOR-FREEZER
Defrosting of the refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated in the refrigerator. Clean regularly the water drain opening Â«GÂ» (figure 1).
Warning! â Unplug the appliance before carrying out any cleaning operations. Risk of electric shocks! Switch off the appliance and pull the plug from the socket, or remove or unscrew the safety fuses. â For safety reasons, never clean the appliance with steam cleaners. The humidity could filter into the applianceâs electrical system and hot steam could damage plastic components. â Thoroughly dry the appliance before switching it back on. â¢ Do not use alcohol or any cleaning product containing alcohol because it can damage the cabinet. â¢ Use lukewarm water and neutral soap or bicarbonate of soda for cleaning the interior and the exterior of the appliance. Never use detergents nor abrasive powders. â¢ Clean the water container above the motor. â¢ Extract the base pulling it outwards in order to permit cleaning underneath the appliance.
