My Amana refrigerator isn't working. There is power but digital display just has a line and no numbers. I do not hear the compressor trying to come on or any sounds at all.

    You will need to replace the control board located in the refrigerator under the control housing. Here is the part to order.http://bit.ly/VQBsGp The cover just snaps in place.

    Unplugged it, cleaned of the back vents, reprogrammed it and it seems to be working fine so far. It was apparantly stuck in the defrost mode according to some online info my husband found.

SOURCE: compressor working but Fridge and Freezer not cooling - Amana

It sounds like the same problem my brother is having with his. I took it apart and found that the fan that moves all the air for cooling is not working. This fan is behind the bottom panel in the freezer side, and sorry you do have to take everything out to get to it.

SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

Check the damper in the top back of the fresh food section. make sure that it is open and air is coming through it.

Amana refrigerator bottom freeze is not cooling; about 8 years old; the cooling switch was replaced and still does not cool


Kim pull refrigerator away from wall and unplug power. Remove lower panel that cover compressor and condenser fan and condenser coils. Don't wait too long but feel the top of compressor and tell me if cool, warm or too hot to hold had there. Let me know those results as I gather up the possible problems that could be related. Did you by chance check the defrost timer by turning timer through opening below and behind the Control panel=> ARB2217CSR Control Panel Did you say you changed a switch or thermostat here? See the defrost timer in photo at location 12? Try turning clockwise slowly until compressor starts or stops what ever may be happening. If stuck in defrost the timer part number=> 67001036 Defrost Timer It is possible that is the only problem but I will wait until I hear from you on turning the defrost Timer and feeling the top of compressor. If this post is helpful please rate, Thank You, John Tripp/AKA Sea Breeze

Compressor will not turn on the kenmore side by side refrigerator


check the start device on the compressor.you'll see a cover with a clip holding it on,unplug the machine,remove the clip and cover,slide the start device off of the compressor,to check it all you have to do is shake the device,if you hear pieces rattling around in it it's bad and you can check it with a meter but if the compressor isn't running,lights are on and fans are working,it will be the start device or the compressor itself.open the fridge door,look up on the right hand wall up near the ceiling and you'll see the model number,call your parts store,give them the model number and they will sell you the correct start device.good luck with your machine.

Hi,
It sounds like you have either a bad relay to the compressor or a locked compressor. I need a model number to direct you to the correct part its location.

My amana suddenly quite running... the lights work inside but the compressor isn't running. both the freezer and the fridge are nor working.


I want you to try something but if it does not work please let me slide on the low rates. I have seen this happen a lot when the defrost timer goes into defrost the switch is in a place on timer that causes a weak timer to stop there if timer is defective. Your timer is part number Click Here=> 67001036 You will find it inside the fresh food section and behind the control panel=> ARB220ZCS_Controls In that photo you will see a number 12 and that is the timer location. Most refrigerators will have a hole going through the control panel (with plastic plug to hide hole) so you can place a flathead screwdriver inside and slowly turn clockwise. If compressor and fans come back on just replace timer. You also may have a bad thermostat. If compressor was quickly starting and then stopping I would look for something in the compressor area. But these symptoms seem to stick out for me, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have an amana bottom freeze abb2227dew the freezer is working fine but the frige isn't cold?


check the regulator or thermostat for the fridge and set it well.
if it is well set then your compressor is losing compression.

Had to empty fridge and freezer when we got back from vacation. unit not cool sounds like it is trying to work but not getting cool


You possibly have a compressor out. If you hear the fan motor kicking in it is more than likely the compressor. There isn't really an easy way to test a compressor to see if its gone out. You can put your hand on it to see if you feel it coming on however, check the compressor first to make sure it isn' t hot by touching it quickly with your finger. Good Luck
