    my Amana srd27s4w has now a new defrost termostat and main circuit board. Deepfreeze fan was checked on independent 120v power source-worked fine. When installed it was getting 105V with working temostat and 87V bypassing it. that made it turn on and of for a second. it seems like power source fails to supply enough voltage to deepfreeze fan. What's next? i get lots of frost and ice on coils in freezer. Condenser fan and compressor are seems fine.

    Now, after defrosting by shut off then Turning Feezer on, Deepfreeze Fan works fine until excessive frost accumulation shows up on coils and fan stalls. I seems to find a reason: bad contacts on fan. cleaned and tighten it and turn ref. on- so far works fine. waiting in about 2-3 hours for ice to build up.

    HERE IS THE OUTCOME: REFRIGIRATOR AND FREEZER WORKS OK BUT WATER DISP. AND ICE MAKER DON'T.

    next day Fan in freezer stopped working again. i am back to square one

Do you have ice buildup in the freezer? this can cause poor airflow.

I would suggest you check the interior fan(s) operation ( controlled by a door switch to run when door is closed). check air passageway between freezer and fresh food compartment for obstructions and proper damper position - dampers have been known to mysteriously 'close by themselves, also check to see on objects extend behind the shelves - mfgs tend to want unobstructed rear air flow. Check External fan near compressor/condenser coils, sometimes a fan is present to help evaporate defrost water. Check proper defrost heat element operation. Sometimes there are multiple defrost elements - one for the freezer, one for the fresh food compartment controlled by different contacts in the defrost timer.

Sounds as if you have a bad defrost thermostat, this particular unit powers the evap fan through it, so if its bad the evaporator fan will not spin( which is why when you by passed it the fan came on.heres the part number easy enough to replace simply rewires right back in place part number (R0161087)

The fan is eather bad which you can check by holding the door switch in with door open and if it blows the check to see if there is frost built up inside the freezer on back wall and if so it has a defrost problem / amana has a bi-metal inside the freezer behind the panel that controls the fan and defrost and i have see them go out and after replacing it they work fine.

    the defrost bi-metal or as some call it a defrost themostat will cause fan to noy run because fan is wired though bi-metal / you well need to replace it to make it quit frosting up and to make fan run ,,,, fan wont run till bi-metal get cold enough / larry

The fan in the freezer compartment will not be running, So it is not blowing cold air into compartment .
Another chance can be problem in defrost thermostat.

Refrigerator is warm, but freezer is cold and still making ice. This is a 3 year old Amanna Bottom Freezer model. There is frost in the top of the freezer drawer when I putt it out.


you will need to defrost it. the freezer is what keeps your fridge cool. the vent where the cool air goes up to your fridge is sealed or frozen.
unplug the fridge and open the doors and let it defrost.
plug it back in after a few hours and it should be working again.

if you can hear the fan still blowing but no cold air coming up to fridge section a common problem with bottom mount freezers is the door gets left open and the air ducts freeze up and the air can't blow up to the top.turn the control off in the freezer.remove the top shelf and the door,check to see if there are any screws one on each side of the slide arms,if there are remove them and lift the door up and out,with a hair dryer melt out the ice by blowing the hot air up each side of the back wall,also if the back inside wall of the freezer is covered with ice or like snow then you have a defrost problem but if there's no ice on back wall do what i said and blow the air up the sides of the back wall through the vents until no more water is seen dripping through the vent holes,then turn the freezer back on and check to see if you feel cold air blowing in through the vents in the fridge section,if you feel cold air then you're all set,if not keep blowing the hot air up the sides until it's melted out.let me know what you find,you'll know if the door was left open,ice will be on the ceiling near the light switch and sometimes on the top of the freezer door.
However if fan has quit totally then it will have to be replaced since it is responsible for cooling the upper part of the fridge

Freezer working but Fridge not cooling... Tried adjusting temp to max cool and nothing. Unblocked vents, still nothing... Pulled off back panel cover to vacuum and brush... still nothing... help??? In case...


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Fridge not getting any air, freezer is working


I have a Kenmore w/ freezer on bottom. The top vent in the fridge is ducted to the freezer and is supposed to blow air. Mine was not.

I removed all the frozen goods and took off the back panel (inside to unit) which had a little ice on it. Underneath the panel was a solid wall of ice......including the motor which is supposed to blow air up to the 'fridge. I'd bet a beer that is your problem as well.

The ice seized motor will not be harmed because it is resistance loaded.

The best part is with a blow dryer and some elbow grease...the fix is free! I hope it helps.

Amana bottom freezer problem


It sounds like the condenser coil might be freezing up. This happened to me on my bottom freezer. The cooling part of your fridge is only in the back of the freezer compartment. The cold air from the freezer blows up through a vent in the back to the fridge and comes out at the top. If the coils do not defrost (which is what happened with mine) the air flow is blocked by the ice and can't get to the fridge compartment. Your freezer will still be cold but your fridge won't. If you pull the plug on it and time things right you can defrost the coils but this will only postpone the problem. Both will work for awhile again until the coils ice up again. You can also pull out the freezer drawere and try to defrost the coil with a blow dryer. You have to disconnect the icemaker and pull out the back panel behind the freezer to get to it though.

Amana ABB1922 refrigerator - refrigerator not cooling


Check fan for operation and vent duct for ice or the damper sticking between the two compartments. It does not take much when the freezer is on bottom, colder air (because heavier) remains there without proper circulation. I will be trying to find the maintenance /service manual to help resolve this. JT

Refrigerator compartment not cooling


If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.
