    The first 2 times were related to the thermostat and the unit was serviced by Amana certified technicians. Both sides are warm, and the unit is 10 years old.

    Thanks for trying, it's still not cooling on either side. Time for a trip to Sears.

Wel there are 2 thermostats in this unit, a defrost thermostat(very common to go bad) but would mainly affect refig sect and the freezer only slightly, the other is a cold control thermo affecting both freezer and refrig, if this goes bad you get NO cooling, looking at the diagram for the refrig it has a defrost timer under the righthand side of the kickplate, i would try advancing the timer, with a screw driver you can manual turn the plastic gear on the timer( i believe on yours its problaby a pink knob. its possible that the timer has gone bad and the unit is stuck in a defrost mode, try turning it ever so slightly, youll hear it "clicking" as you do , it should "snap" into arun mode and everthy kick on for it is stuck in defrost(worth a try anyway)

NO ICE FROM ICE MAKER


You have a bad water valve or the fill tube where the water comes into the ice maker is frozen full of ice. Check the second problem first then if the fill tube is clear the valve needs to be replaced.

Amana SxS fridge not cooling or freezing


You have a sealed system problem. There is either a small leak or a restriction somewhere in the tubing. This isn't something you could've caused so don't worry about that. Unfortunately this isn't something you can fix yourself either. You require a certified refrigeration technician to fix this problem.
