Amana DBR 2201 CW fridge, freezer good fridge not cooling

Over night lost cooling in the top. Lower freezer still 0 degrees. Condensor fan running, condensor not very hot and low side compressor line not cold at compressor. No air flow at top of box ( temp door open), good air flow at bottom. What am I missing or is it just low on freon?
Thanks
Jim

    Yes that is a good suggestion. While I was waiting for a reply I got into that motor and when I turned the fridge on it ran, but I had spun it before trying it so it may still be bad. I did find a frosted up evaporator so now I'm looking at the defrost system. Found the heater and the thermostat, but have not found the timer. Will check the heater and thermostat tomorrow, heading to bed now. Thanks again,

    I will test the thermostat and go for the motor. There was no air going to the top of the box until I pulled the white cover off and spun the motor. Then when I plugged the fridge up it did run and some air came out the top but didn't feel like enough. Thanks again for your help on this. I not an appliance tech. I work on vehicles.

The most common issue withthat refrig is either the fan not spinning ( or dependin g on the fan , not spinning hard enough.If the fan housing is a white box (( hard wired to a connection just to the left)) i would replace the fan with ah more reliable fan. the defrost thermostat might also be an issue, theheater VERY VERY RARELY goes bad . as far as a defost timer its built into the electronic control( jazz board))

Sounds like you have a bad evaporator fan motor, located in the freezer section ,it circulates the air up to the refrigerator compartment

    yea hte fact that the fan started toblow after you pushed on it, leads me to believe that you do indeed have a fan issue, it did start to spin but not too fast, new fan comes as a kit part number 12002744 comes with all directions real easy to install, no problems with this replacemnt motor!

Refrigerator not cooling.


No the evaporator fan not running has nothing to do with the compressor. I would suspect that you are freezing up over the evaporator because the fan is not running and when it ices up the air can not flow through properly therefore causing the refrigerator side to get warmer. Replace the fan and you should be fine. Take the back panel inside the freezer off and see if you are all iced up. If you bare then I would replace the fan . You also said the defrost heater did not come on. That will also cause a freeze up. Possible replacement of the defrost heater may be needed. Good Luck!

Amana refrigerator not cooling below 45 degrees.


the fan in the freezer section is called the evaporator fan. this fans main funciton is to blow cold air into the fresh food side. if its not running then you need to replace. make sure there is no frost build up on the rear wall in freezer section

Old fridge was tilted during move and then turned on immediately.


They started putting evap fans in refers in the '60s. Is this one frost free, or do you have to defrost it?

If it's frost free, 99.99% chance it has a fan.

And get ready for that ice to melt, slowly. Freezers should be between 0 and 10 degrees F, refer's at 40-45 degrees F (sorry, my mind is not doing the conversions to night. Too much wine.). At .5 C, ice will melt.

I am going to bet either a fan is not running, the condensor fan is not running, the condensor is plugged with 30-40 years of dust/dirt, and last but not least, slightly low on R-12 (yes, one of the bad guy refrigerants.).

Let me know what you find.

And if there is more of the model number than you have given, please do. I might be aboe to look at a breakdown for it, tell you if it has that fan.

Amana side-by-side fridge freezer only cold at the bottom


yes the evap fan in the frezer should be running when the compressor is running[it may not for a minute or so as it starts up.Amana's are good for the connectors at the evap fan motor comming apart.the connectors are white and will look like its together but when you pull it will come apart.i would always cut the connector out and use a wire nut so wont happen again.if any other questions please email thru FixYa and i will be glad to help. God bless ,tom

GE model TFX22R ice maker problem


First clean out the condensor coils. If you have pets it should be done at least 3 times a year. The other possible problem is if the gasket in either the fridge or freezer is worn out or has a gap it will not cool properly. Check that the fan underneath the unit by the condensor coils is running when the compressor is . Some smaller refrigerators have only condensor coils on the back and no fan. These units should have room for air flow on top and sides not built in flush with cabinets. Buy a thermometer for both the fridge and freezer compartments. You run the risk of food poisoning if the fridge temp can not be kept below 40 degrees. Freezer temp should be able to keep at least 0 - 5 degrees. (Ice cream is a very good indication of proper temp. It is the first thing that melts. Ice maker is a close 2nd.)

If these things don't work call for repair. Don't risk losing all your food!
