Re: temp to cold
Do you hae all the shelves an ddrawers installed correctly and have you loaded up the refrigeerator yet because this unit useds a temperautre sensing to determine the tempoerature that it is and it does not work very wellif the refrigeratoipor is allmost empty. That actually goe for all units hat the freezer/refrigerator operate more efficiently if its partially full like 60%. LEt me know if this helps and if not don't rate until your poproblem is resolved and then rate the best solution Please. Thanks for using FixYa.

Amana refrigerators older than 5 years have both a cold control and freezer control. this may be your problem. But check both the gaskets on the doors and check for heavy dirt on condser coil. Both can cause wild temp problems. Hope this helps
If designed as most combination units, one of the two controls influences the temperature directly, the other only determines how much of the generated cold air is allowed to enter the other compartment.
The typical arrangement is that setting the freezer temperature determines how often often the compressor runs; the other diverts a portion of the cold air into the refrigerator side.
Using the common thermometer for cold temperatures (~$5 US), adjust the freezer temperature for 0 to -5 degrees F (the often recommended temp.), then the other control for the desired refrigerator temperature, suggested as 35-45 F. This is the most common practice.
If you cannot balance them the way you want, reverse the procedure, setting for refrigerator temp., then freezer.
You may need to balance the distribution of cold air between the freezer and refrigerator section.
The temperature setting influences both and there is normally a control that lets you divide the cooling between the two compartments.
If you don't have one, get an inexpensive (<$5 US) refrigerator thermometer, normally a simple dial-type, and monitor your refrigerator temperature (maybe somewhere in the middle) overnight when not often opened, set the main control to get the temperature between 40-45 degrees F.
Then check the freezer temp.; it should be <10 degrees F (0 is better), then swap back to the fridge to correct the main setting.
Go back and forth until you have both compartments close to the mentioned ranges.
SINCE MOST CONTROLS WILL ONLY CHANGE THE TEMPS ABOUT 5 DEGREES +/-, IT DOESN'T PAY TO CHANGE THE CONTROLS AT ALL. IF YOU WANT TO, SET THE CONTROL THAT TURNS OFF THE UNIT TO THE WARMEST SETTING BEFORE OFF. BE SURE IT IS RESET TO 38 DEGREES WHEN YOU GET BACK.
