Re: amana fridge out
How do you know if the outlet is ok? Did you try plugging something else into it? You need to make sure that you plug it into the same one and not the one above or below it. Also sometimes the outlet won't have the full 110-120 volts needed to run something. Is it possible that you have had a mouse problem? Mice love to chew on wires and take out appliances. Let me know what happens.

Pull the fridge out from the wall and check to make sure it is plugged in.
Unplug the fridge and plug in a spare appliance to see if the outlet is working. Check the circuit breaker to the house see If the outlet is not working to see if there are any fuses that are flipped.Inspect the electrical cord for the refrigerator for damage, such as from a mouse or pet chewing on it.
Open the fridge to see if the light turns on. The power to the unit is fine if the light turns on, which means something else is the cause of the starting issue.
Turn up the thermostat on the inside of the fridge if it is set to a low setting. Turn it all the way up and listen for the condenser motor to start. Have the unit serviced by a professional if it does not May be internal problem with component
It could be a loose connection where the power cord is connected to the refrigerator inside or a bad power cord. If that doesn't solve the problem you may consider calling a repair person. Good Luck, GilShultz
First , check if is power in the outlet where the fridge is plugged in by plugging something you know works (table light , radio,etc.) , if it doesn't work , means there's not power at the outlet what could be a trpped breaker , burnt fuse , burnt or loose wire at the outlet, or a bad outlet ; but if you got power in the outlet , probably the fridge cord or its plug are bad.
check the brake switch located on a bracket under your driver side, on top of the brake pedel check for power, if power depress on your pedal see if there's nopower on the other side of the switch then replace the switch. I think it is the switch.
You may have a short some where in the fridge. If you have a multimeter, I would suggest metering the power leads to the compressor. The compressor may be bad, if you find no shorts in the metering of the power leads.
