OK, you can open the cover. Here is the part if you need it.
Here is a diagram if you should also need it. It is number 12 on the diagram. Let me know if you need anything further. I forgot what the original question was.

SOURCE: is there a video showing how to replace the defrost timer in an Amana model ARB2557CSR

Does your unit have the defrost timer inside or is it under the kickplate?

Auto defrost is broken


Find the defrost timer and turn it with a screw driver (will only go clockwise) until it clicks.n wait 10-15 min. If the defrost starts to work (Freezer will get warmer heaters kick on) the timer is bad. If not you will need to check the deforst heater (behind back panel of freezer) and thermostat (silver cylinder with 2 wires on the evap coil) The timer is eithr under the box behind the kick plate (clean the coil while you are there) inside the refrigerator (look in the top for a small hole with a funny knob) or back behind the frig near the compressor( clean here as well).

If it goes into defrost and defrosts, rotate the timer until it clicks again and the compressor should start again.

Just stopped working: plugged in,light on,fan blows in freezer-


defrost timer probably failed in defrost mode go online search for defrost timer location and manually advancing or initiating a defrost cycle , it may pop into run mode and tell you thats what it is , 90% of the time thats it and they are cheap !

MATAG FRIG PTB2153GR FREEZER DOES NOT GET COLDER THAN 38 DEGREES F


Try turning the defrost timer clockwise until you hear it click. If defrost element and defrost thermostat are working properly, the refrigerator should begin to defrost. The timer is located inside the fresh food compartment behind plastic controls cover and also near the thermistat control.beb686d.jpg .I will be around if you need, just let me know,Sea Breeze

Amana refrigerator warm


Chances are if they are getting cool but not cold-

1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running
2) Defrost heater has failed
3) Defrost sensor has failed
4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.

Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator.
Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above.
