Freezer not cold enough

Have an 8 year old Amana side by side. super clean underneath, always kept dust/dog hair and all out. Fan works great. Freezer started to warm up, can only hold about 35 degrees. Fridge part is also staying warmer. Compressor seems to run a great deal more. Help?

Begin by turning the freezer temperature setting dial to a lower setting. Then wait a few hours to see if your problem is fixed. If that does not correct the problem you probably need to have the coolant system recharged. That requires special equipment so you will have to call in a repair person.

What do I do if The freezer is working but the refrigerator is not cold


There may be a damper between the freezer and refrigerator. on some models this is thermostatic on others it is ran by an small motor. Look to see if the louvers are open. if not it is likely that the thermostat or motor is bad. Some even have a small fan.

Freeze works fine, food side at 50 degrees.


Is there a fan that blows air over the cooling coils in the freezer? Not sure if side-by-side fridges have this. This was the reason for my top freezer / bottom fridge. Air was not being blown around the freezer and down into the fridge.
