Amana SxS fridge not cooling or freezing

I have an Amana sxd23ve Side by Side fridge. I recently cleaned the coils and now it is not cooling. All the fans are running. The compressor is hot to the touch. The coils in the freezer section have almost no frost on them except for right at the input there is some frost build up.

    Thanks for the quick response. Cna you give me a ball park figure on what a repair like this would cost? Should I be thinking about a new fridge?

  • dvraa Nov 03, 2008

    FYI - the problem was a restriction in the filter. Parts and labor came to $270. If it hadn't been that, I was looking at about $900 for a new coil and compressor.

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.

    The appliance repair company I work for charges between $200 and $600 depending on the severity of the problem. Check in you owners manual for your warranty information. If this fridge is less then five years old then sealed system work is usually covered under a manufactures warranty. If its older then five years I'd probably start looking for a new fridge.

How to clean dust from coils


i know this is not directly answering your question but dust and dirt should not be significant enough to hault normal operating function or the fridge, more than likely the coolant with in the coils needs to be drained and replaced or maybe even the compressor itself. I would clean the coils, replace the coolant, in that order check progress each step of the way. The safest way to clean coils is with a vacuum cleaner and slender crevice attachment just try not to damage them

I called Amana and found the "sealed systems" are still under warranty. It cost me $85 for a service call and the fridge is working. The problem was a plugged "capillary line."

GE Refrigerator does not cool anymore


my amana SXS was not cooling properly. I took off the cover inside the back of the freezer to see if the defroster was working. it was so I timed the cycle. It was about 50 minutes. I decided that it was staying on defrost too long and too often. I replaced the defrost timer and the thermostat(since I bought both for about 40 bucks.) Previously, I had cleaned the coils underneath with a special 'refrigerator coil brush' from Home Depot. ($4) But that alone didn't fix it . works like new now with new parts.
