Question about Amana Refrigerators
I am going to change a compressor in an Amana Refer.and I need to know what is the best way to do it,also need to replace the rear roller. thanks Bert
This is not a diy job. after replacing compressor, you have to vacuum down the system ie remove all air and measure the amount of refrigerant injected into the system. you need special gear for this

Look inside the freezer compartment and rear wall of
freezer. Does the rear wall appear to have frost buildup? I noticed you said
also that the refrigerator will not get cold. If not getting cold this may be
simply a start relay problem. The symptoms of not getting cold usually is
caused because the compressor start relay has become defective and as the
compressor tryst to restart it becomes hot. pull the refrigerator away from wall,
unplug and remove lower panel covering the compressor. While unplugged remove
cover and feel top of compressor. If warm then the compressor may have been
running. If too hot to hold hand on top of compressor unplug until the start
relay and start capacitor can be replaced. Let me know your results because I will be able to identafy the parts you need replace to get refrigerator back to cooling normally. Here is the=> 67005560 Relay/Overload with Start Capacitor
If this is what is happening you may need to simply replace this part. Here is a link to these parts as they are shown on the parts breakdown for your Click here=> ABB2222FEB Amana Refrigerator Compressor Components In that photo location 10 is the part that will need to be replaced if I understand you correctly. If the symptoms are any different than this post please let me know so I can adjust the solution to a possible control board=> ABB2222FEB Controls Parts Breakdown From the way you explained the symptoms are the first solution but adding this location should your refrigerator not be defrosting properly. Then again this board can also be OK and somthing in the defrost circuit be defective like defrost heater or defrost thermostat. I will wait to hear back from you to tell me if the compressor is too hot from not starting, If helpful please rate this solution. If you have any question please ask. I will be waiting to hear back from you, Thanks, Sea Breeze
