I recently just purchased second hand an Amana afd2535des fridge and during the moving process the side panel had been damaged. I am wondering if I can find a replacement for the side panel or if both side are interchangeable, since the other side will not be exposed in my house.

The "outside" coils that you are looking for on a refrigerator will be found either on the back, or in the case of your Amana, on the bottom - behind the toe space bezel. There are no coils on the back of the fridge.
The coils are usually thin, black grates that contain the refrigerant. Be careful not to damage them when cleaning. Open the freezer door (yours is a bottom freezer type) and simply grasp at the top of the bezel an gently pull away from the frame.
Use a narrow crevice vacuum tool attachment to pull the dust and debris from the coils. Use a flashlight to see beyond the very front. You may also wish to unplug the fridge so that you do not damage the fan if it is struck by the tool while running. You should vac the coils annually or more frequently if the fridge is in a dusty area - or there is a lot of pet hair collecting on the coils. Some fridges also have the fan hidden behind a removable panel on the at the bottom of the back side of the fridge. If cleaning fan blades - you must unplug the fridge before attempting. Vacuum any dirt and dust on visible coils seen near the fan.
You will be able to hear it when you open the freezer door and hold the door switch in.It is located behind the rear panel inside the freezer. The fan should be running when the compressor is running. If it is running make sure the damper(vent) to the fridge side is not blocked by ice and that the damper door is open.
don't worry! find out a valve in the back of the refrigerator and after that connect the outlet with it. if there is no valve than there would be a hole behind the refrigerator....... just connect the outlet with it.............................have a nice day :-)
You should worry , the 12 amps is a locked rotor on the compressor , it may be the over load relay control on the compressor as well , try replacing the over load start relay first , they are not expensive , if this does not fix it you can try installing a booster like a rco410 but the comp. can not take that abuse for years from the booster. when the comp. is running normal it will draw roughly 1.5 - 3.0 amps.
sure , if you look underthe handle is there perahps a small screwhole in which you can tighten handle??this may be prior year in which case if there are no screw holes present you need to grab hold of handle and with a "brisk" pull to the right it will come off hiddenclips, the clips can be t ightened and resecure by snapping back the oppisite way the handle pullled off
The most common problem is the evaporator fan motor which is located behind the back panel of the freezer and it moves cold air up to the fridge. You will be able to hear it when you open the freezer door. May have to hold the light switch in the freezer shut for it to come on. If the fan is running feel for air flow out of the vent in the top middle of the fridge section. If you don't feel air and the fan is running then the damper motor behind that vent is bad. All of this is assuming that there is no frost buildup on the back panel of the freezer. If there is frost buildup then it is a defrost problem. Let me know what you find.
