The Amana model number styles is vary depending on the size and efficiency level. I will give an example of how to decode some styles of the model numbers. I have been simplified to focus on the location of each individual units SEER, tonnage, Efficiency and air flow characteristics.
Manufacturers often code their unit specifications into their model numbers, Amana is an example. In this article, I will explain in detail explanation of the alphanumeric identification code (Model Number Nomenclature) from Amana.
Amana Model Number Location
Finding the model number on your Amana units can be vital when repairs or parts are needed, because many parts are model-specific. Model numbers usually appear on a data plate or sticker. Several numbers appear on the tag, including the model number, serial number, tonnage and air flow characteristics.
The data plate is located on a side panel behind the front panel of the Amana AC unit. Accessing the data plate will require removal of the front door utilizing tools. The data plate sticker is small, so you may need a flashlight to read the model number.
If you do not feel comfortable performing these tasks, we recommends contacting a local service professional for assistance.

To calculate tonnage from Amana model number, divide the BTUs by 12,000, which is the weight of one refrigeration ton. For example, an unit with 48,000 BTUs has a tonnage of 4.
- 18 = 1.5 tons
- 24 = 2 tons
- 30 = 2.5 tons
- 36 = 3 tons
- 42 = 3.5 tons
- 48 = 4 tons
- 60 = 5 tons
