Remove back panel inside freezer and see if pipework is frozen up and also check fan is working. if pipework frozen up, indicates a fault with the defrost system

Why


if the compressor is running but not cooling most likely you have a freon leak in the sealed system,you can tell by looking at the evaporator coil,the coil should have an even frost pattern covering it,if frost is just on top you have a freon leak,also if you have a defrost problem and the coil is covered with ice this also will keep it from getting cold,look at the coil to see.good luck

Be very careful as to who you get to do that as many are not experienced enough to work on fridge units...they are very touchy and need to be serviced by someone familiar with the small refrigeration units and also someone that is licensed to use refrigerants...

The freezer is not cooling


If this is not a frost free freezer to determine which component has failed please do the following.

Unplug the freezer wait 5 minutes and plug back in. Listen closely for any sounds by the compressor. If you hear a click or hum followed by a click the problem is the compressor and would cost about $400.00 to repair.

If you do not hear any sounds the problem is most likely the cold control or sometimes called the thermostat2_bing.gif.

If this is a frost free unit the problem could be with the defrost cycle or the fan motor.

Good day,
Somewhat handicapped not knowing if it's a conventional freezer or frost free.
1. If it's frost free check to see if the fan motor is running in the freezer compartment.
2. As well if it has a fan motor in the compressor compartment, see if it is running as well.

3. If it is a conventional model, make sure it is turned on and make sure it is running. If running, then it has lost it's refrigerant charge or the compressor has lost it's pumping capacity.

4. If it is item 3, then unless it's less then 5 years old, the sealed
system/compressor problem is so pricey that it's not a practical repair. If under 5 years Amana will pay for these repairs, whether it's conventional or frost free.

My top 2 racks frost up and the bottom 2 barely feel cold


If the condenser coil (in the back) is clean ,it is probably that the unit is low on refrigerant(freon) which means there's a leak , and before recharge it is has to be repair(the leak).

Kenmore upright freezer.


Will need a little more information to assist you with answers. Will need the model number if available for you Kenmore and will usually be on inside Freezer/refrigerator door and near bottom. Will look like model #363.1234567 for example.
Now if it's not cooling at all, is the compressor running beneath the fridge? Is the condenser fan running that is below the freezer and near the compressor? Is the evaporator fan blowing air in the freezer section? Do you hear clicking noises in the compressor area and can you feel the compressor to see if you feel warm or hot to touch around its side and top? Can you tell me of any other things that you noticed before the refrigerator stopped working? Is the temp control digital or manual settings? Has the settings been changed since you turned the refrigerator off and then back on? Thanks, Sea Breeze
