Question about Refrigerators
Testing shows 120 volts to the unit. When contacts are placed on the relay connections the Ohms blink between 20-30 and around 180.

If the thermostat has been bypassed it sounds like lack of refrigerant gas in the system. The level cant be checked visually, it will need to be checked by an engineer with pressure gauges.

It looks like the Capacitor Start Relay is failing. It is located either on the starter Relay or mounted on the side of the compressor compartment. It sould have two wires on it, one orange and the other probably white.

SOURCE: GE Refrigerator Compressor Inop.
I found this post by searching on the capacitor number, JSU21X126AQC. My 2001 Kenmore refrigerator (don't have model# here) compressor didn't run, but I heard it hum for a few seconds and then a click. That's the Klixon overload doing its job. I measured resistance of the compressor leads same as original poster. This lead me to determine that the windings were not open or shorted. The wiring to the compressor also fed the condenser fan, and it was running, so power was at least all the way to the compressor.
What I did find was that the 12uF capacitor was only 4uF. My digital volt meter has a capacitor check range. This compressor circuit is a permanent split capacitor type. Without the proper capacitance, the compressor can't start. I replaced it with a 10uF, 220v AC capacitor I had, and now it runs fine. I wonder how many refrigerators are scrapped because of this inexpensive problem?

Old message, I'm sure you have solved your problem by now, but . . .
IF Amana/Whirlpool conforms to wiring standards (no guarantees), the main AC wires should be white=neutral, black=hot, red=switched line. Of course, they already depart with the use of the brown wire.
You should be able to access the 'full' switch at the ice maker itself and as you have found, it will turn on (or off) the fill solenoid.
It would be kind to post back what you found as it might benefit others in the future.

look for ice or forst build up on the rear wall of freezer compartment, sounds like you may have a defrost problem. this will affect temps in freezer and refrig. the most common def problems for GE are bad defrost heaters. these are model specific and fairly easy to replace your self. i got this part number form Sears.com WR51X10055 good luck peyton
