It sounds as though you have a refigeration problem if there is no cold on the coil, however you hav sad that you have changed the sensor which would bring in the fan when cold enough. As far as airflow I have been doing this a while on American cabinets and never really consider airflow as a primary failure. If the fan is running and the vents are clear that is normally enough, these fans are not high powered and the cabinets have a large volume. What you could try is leaving the door open whilst observing the coil and see if it frosts right through the coil without the fan running. If it does then it should pull down to temp. Hope this helps, unfortunately without seeing things its hard to give a definitive answer.

SOURCE: Amana model SXD25QA3W. Not cooling. Compressor runs.

Low on refrigerant which is R 12. EPA has stopped the manufacture of it and it is priced out of sight.
You have a leak and will need it fixed. Compressor is about $300-400 list. You don't want to go there.
Good luck but likely 15-17 years old....... New one ???

On the Amana comfort zone air conditioner, there is a switch that says exhaust closed. Do I want the exhaust open or closed when i have the cool on the air conditioner


Hi, when you are running it in the cooling mode, leave the exhaust open to remove the condenser hot air. If you want to run just the fan to circulate the air you can close it.

Just starting not keeping things cold


If there is frost on the wall of freezer, you have a defrost problem, and not enough air is circulated due to frost build-up. If no frost and all fans and compressor is running, you have a sealed system failure. Time to replace refrig.

Amana refrigerator not cold


The fan that should circulate air between the two compartments has failed. These usually have 'sleeve' bearings which can become sticky and fail to start up without help. Go to the Sears/parts website and enter your Amana model number; if you are lucky, they will have a line drawing of your model which can aid in finding how to access the fan:
Sears Parts Dept.
They have info for thousands of non-Sears items and most can be ordered via that website as well.

Sounds like the circulating fan is either gone or is going bad. This problem is hard to diagnose because sometimes the fan will run but not fast enough to circulate the air through the freezer and refrigerator. I would have your repairman look at this or if you have the know how then you can order the fan and replace it yourself.

The fan does not work


If this is an Amana, the evaperator fan motor works through the defrost thermostat. If the thermostat is open (no continuity), the fan motor will not run. This is usually the solution for this particular brand. Replace the thermostat and once it satisfies (within 5-10 mins. of replacement), the fan should start to run.

Not cold


If you are talking about the refrigerator not cooling, but the freezer is then it appears that the circulating fan is wearing out. This problem is very hard to diagnose as the fan still spins but it does not spin fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. The minimum cost to repair/replace the fan assembly is around$300.00.
