Let's set it straight right off the bat. Your condensor doesn't click, your compressor does. If it clicks but doesn't come one, it's by by. The click is the start winding that won't start. You have one saving grace. Unplug it for 8 hours and try it again. In the unlikely event that it was frozen, it may surprise both of us. Being it is 5 years old. Time for a new one as the cost of replacement with freon and such is just too high for the age. If you have found this helpful, please rate a fixya.

Stopped working. clicking sound when it wants to start up. Is it the compressor or the relay switch model 8 yrs old old.


You.have to check if the compresor is working or damage. Try starting direct the compresor, Generali should be the electric part outside the compresor just change at the electric parts and should work. If you send a picture of the position on the connectors I will help you to try the compressor

How does the fridge compartment get cold? Is it a thermostat or condenser problem?


The self defrosting feature of your unit has a failed component. Possible defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or timer. The defrost timer may be part of the main circuit board of the unit.

The refrigerator and freezer are not cooling the freezer reads 12 and the refrigerator is 42


I am a celcius man myself. So I assume you are talking about degrees fahrenheit?
Basically you are not getting the correct temperatures in the refrigerator or freezer. this could be due to
# Condenser fan not working (condenser is the outside of the fridge that gets hot)
# condenser blocked or dirty
# Poor air flow over the condenser
$ evaporator fan not working (this circulates cold air inside the fridge)
$ The ducting for the cold air is blocked
$ the themostat is faulty
& Compressor has burnt valves and cannot pump properly
* the fridge is loosing refrigerant

. 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



Part 4 on this diagram is your relay. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=ASD2624HES&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=1268&modelName=AMANA-REFRIGERATION&diagramPageId=00013&componentDescription=COMPRESSOR&documentId=M0608085&backToLink=Return%20to%20subcomponent%20list Here's how you can check it. http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

Ice isn't forming, even though there is water to fridge.


Check the compressor if fridge is over 5 yrs old. If gas is low. You will need to refill it.

* Check the temperature setting
* Assure that there is enough room for air flow in the freezer or freezer
* Check for air flow restrictions in vents
* Test the temperature control
* Clean the condenser coils
* Check the door seals
* Test the door switch
* Test defrost heater
* Test defrost timer
* Test evaporator fan
* Check for a clogged drain tube
* Check for refrigerant leak
