Question about Amana ARB1905C Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I just cleaned my fridge, and it was open quite a bit. The light is working, however the fan is not turning on and the fridge is not getting cold. I have it set on maximum cool. I have a Tempassure Amana...Is there a way to reset the fridge? Or....does it sound like we may need maintenance?
Try to uplug it for a few minutes then plug back in. Let us know if the compressor and fan kick on then otherwise we'll have to give more advice on where to look, etc.

Had same problem, but followed the unplug for a few minutes suggestion. While unplugged, got to back of fridge to discover back panel at bottom of fridge was dusty. Removed it to find that it was much heavier than appeared- cleaned, also noted fan had lots of dust- used vaccuum and toothbrush to get at hard areas. Plugged back in- happy fridge!!! Saved lots of time, $$$ and aggravation! Theory by total novice: heavy dust obstructed air flow exchange and caused overheating to fan. Next step, likely fan engine burn out and lots of expensive parts and labor, and who does that on a Sat night?! Relieved!

It could be the thermomstat. You ideally should try shorting out the thermostat mains feed through so that mains get to the compressor motor all the time, if it runs and gets cold I should say the stat has gone. The trouble with this is you need to know about mains safety and use an insulated means of shorting the switch feed through without doing the wrong thing and blowing yourself up! If in doubt call an expert!!, George

If the evaporator fan is not running. The fan itself could be faulty or the door operated light/fan switch could be faulty.
If the evaporator fan is running. The fridge is not defrosting and ice has built up on the evaporator and the air is not circulating properly into the fridge compartment. The fan circulates cold air into the fridge and back through the fridge control which is normally just an adjustable flap which allows more or less cold into the fridge depending on the setting. If the fridge is not defrosting, the defrost timer could be faulty or heater element could be blown.
