I have an amana ars 2667bw .... its been working well.. untill recently i noticed that the refridgerator side is not cooling ... i dont know if the thermosthat itself has went out or the fan .... i wish i...


Hello gizzard28,

The only way I know to trouble shoot the fan is to go in there and open up the fan compartment and see if it is spinning. Most of the time if the Freezer is freezing and the fridge is not colling your problem is with the fan.

The Evaporator Fan motor is beneath the ice maker assembly. You will need to remove the cover and plug the unit in and see if the fan is still running. If the fan is not running and the coil is frozen up you will need to follow this TIP to defrost and change the fan.

If the fan is running you will need to find out which control is out there are three of them that control the temperature of the unit. They are two are located in the fridge on the side of left side of the fridge 1/4 up and 1/4 down. There is also a air filter that may be clogged on the lower left side of the fridge that will stop the airflow.
Here is a link to a blow up diagram of all of the parts to your unit.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

My side by side fridge has stopped chilling down, the power is Ok, and moter seems to be working, but no cold inside. A few months ago the freezer side stopped, but as i did not use it , i just left well...


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm




Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

My fridge is not colling and compressor geting heat.


If this is a SxS , the overload/relay which plugs onto the compressor is probably bad if the compressor clicks off or does not run at all ,OR , the fan which cools the compressor (condensor fan ) is not working (bad motor ) , also make sure the coils are clean at the bottom in the front (condensor coils ) .

Relay clicking, not cooling either side


First of all Give me model# and Serial#.
you will most likely have to replace main control board and evaporator fan motor. They have had a service bulletin out on this problem.

The black pod is the compressor and the switch on the side is the compressor start relay. You either have a failed relay or a locked up compressor.
Most likely it is a burned out relay.
Unplug the fridge and remove the relay from the compressor.
Shake it. If it sounds like a lot of loose pieces are rattling around in it, it is burned out.
Be sure you replace it with the correct replacement part. A "fit-all" relay may work for a while then cause the compressor to fail.
Your model number has 106 in front of it. You will need to know that when looking up or ordering parts.
Post back if you have any questions.

Fridge is not 'freezing', Looks like fan stopped working


could be due to ice build up jamming the fan. take back panel off and check for ice. if ice present the defrost system has failed. also on some models, the fan stops when door is opened. check door switch is operating
