Question about Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water
My 10 year old Amana side by side won't cool to proper temperature. Freezer won't go below 28 degrees F, and fridge side is stuck around 45 degrees f. Even when I put it on "fast freeze" Has been like this for three weeks. High temperature warning alarms come on every third of fourth day, usually in the middle of the night which is a pain.
All cooling fans working, and no frost buildup inside (replaced the thermistor last year as the defrost was not working, but now no problems.) coils are clear. Is there an easy way to test compressor function or whether the refridgerant has leaked? If it has leaked, can it be "topped up" as with an air conditioner, or should I just bite the bullet and bin it?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
