Check a re-set button! Not the best brand! Pull the plug and try and re-set it. The manual should help or a help line!

SOURCE: is it okay to transport a new fridge on its side or back?

The key here is that you must let the unit stay upright for a period of time BEFORE you plug it in. So, yes it is ok to transport it on its side. Let the unit sit in its correct position for 4 hours or so and you should be fine. The issue is the oils and freon (or equivalent) that must be allowed to pool in the bottom before you attempt to run it.

SOURCE: fridge freezer light on nothing else after transporting.

IS THIS A AUTOMATIC DEFROST UNIT? IF SO THEN THE DEFROST CLOCK PROBABLY IS BAD, LOOK UNDERNEITH BY THE COMPRESSOR AND THERE SHOULD BE A SQUARE ISH BAX THAT HAS 4 WIRES COMING OUT OF IT. TAKE AND TURN THE RED KNOB WITH A SCREW DRIVWER UNTIL THE COMPRESSOR COMES ON. IF THAT WAS NOIT IT TAKE A HAIR DRIER AND HEAT UP THE LIDUID LINE DRIER SOME TO TRY TO CLEAR THE RESTRICTION ON THE DRIER. GOOD LUCK (SORRY ABOUT ALL CAPS BUT GOT TIRED OF CORECTING THE SPELLING) NOT SHOUTING

SOURCE: Refrigerator works, freezer doesn't

The part that is usually the issue on this model is the defrost thermostat.

I usually test it for continuity while its frosty with an ohm meter. If you don't have an volt/ohm meter, you can get a cheap one at Radio Shack.

It clips on the top right side of your evaporator coil. It is part 23 on the diagram at this website http://content.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/P0070077-00003.png

Let me know if you need anything else

SOURCE: Stopped cooling but i can hear running

The overload/relay is probably bad .This is the part plugged onto the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires plugged onto it . You can easily replace this part . Be sure to have your model number when ordering .

It should be unplugged and left to defrost for 12 to 24 hours before you move it.

If you have to lie it down at any point during the move it then needs to be left for a minimum of 12 hours for the fluid to resettle before you plug it back in.

There are 2 reasons. While transporting if they lifted with won wards to discharge side, chances are there to oil entering. And while switch on it starts pumping the oil.Secondly, chance for gas leak.
It's advisable to remove gas and check for leak. If no leak, flush out the system and replace drier.
Vacuum and do gas charging. Please write if it's helpful.

I have a stainless steel Amana model ABC2037DES that was given to me. It has been plugged in for 24 hours and it is not freezing anything or making ice. The refridgerator is not cold enough either. ...


if the compressor is working it could be a thermostat problem
I think that if you check for a reset button at the back to get the compressor running , that will fix the problem

Moved fridge...runs but now does not cool


Just unplug and let the compressor oil that flowed into the freezer evaporator to flow back to compressor. Unplug and wait 24 hours until trying to restart. Ifyou can not feel or insure compressor is running wait longer. The oil is thick and in liquid state it must seep through a hole about 10 feet and the opening can be as small as a sewing neddle. Let me know if this has been helpful, Thank You Sea Breeze

Kitchen Aid refrigerator is making a very loud noise!


when you transported this unit did you lay it down or stand it up? If it was layed down then you should of waited at least 24 hours before plugging it up again to give the oil in the compressor time to settle back down. Actually either way it was transported it still needed the 24 hour rest time. So if you automatically plugged it in after transportation you could have messed up the compressor. Let it set unplugged for 2 days then plug it in and see what happens. If loud noise persists then you know the compressor is shot. Goog Luck.
