After checking all of that..

Try unplugging it for a couple of minutes then plug it back in. I found on my 27ft Amana side by side that the defrost control is controlled by a microcontroller based module near the bottom of the fridge. It was out in la-la land and in my case, was not defrosting the freezer coils. Cycling the power reset it and all was well.

Worth a shot. Good luck.

Check the coils underneath the unit to be sure they are clean if they are clean then check the condenser fan motor behind the cardboard cover on the back of the refrig. the motor could be bad or has an obstructuction. good luck peyton

We own an Amana bottom freezer; Mod.# BC120TW, Ser # 9708176268. It is approximately 10 - 11 years old. The freezer is not getting to a low enough temperature. We have soft ice cream etc. I have cleaned...


If it is constantly running, (compressor and the fan inside of freezer) then the thermostat is working, more than likely you have an inefficient compressor or a low charge in the sealed system due to a refrigerant leak. Touch the compressor, is it almost too hot to touch? Do you hear a buzzing and clicking noise every so often? If you can answer that for me, I could better diagnose it

Amana Top Freezer Refrigerator is hot to the touch on the outside on the sides by the freezer. Still working fine inside. Is something getting ready to break inside?


The problem was the fan. It was hitting the metal enclosure and had stopped working. We made an adjustment and cleaned it and now it works fine and the hot spots are gone.

Amana Side-by-Side refrigerator hot spot


hi tanks for the question there are heaters at the spots you said were hot and those heaters are there to prevent moist air from hitting cold surface and create warer droplets from forming on those surfaces i would remove the back of the fridge and vacuum it out that should solve your problem thanks the appliance doc

Freezer on bottom cold but frig is warm


Just additional clues..(general). The defrost timers (on non-electronic) usually located at the bottom (underneath), have a tendency to fail. (One of mine is in the center, one was on the left side) There are usually about 5 wires connected to it. If it fails while defrosting.. the fridge will warm quickly and stop cooling, if it fails in cooling mode, you will have the icing up problem. (other) A squealing noise is usually a fan motor. -also- (Freon issues)..as freon is lost from a small leak, first the freezer will actually get colder, but the refrigerator section may be too warm (I know it sound stupid). When enough is lost the compressor will get hot and the fridge will not cool.
