Check the coolant pressure, you could have a leak. Sounds like everything else is working.

    I would guess all the coolant leaked out which caused it to lock up.

    If that were my Ref, I would have done the same thing.

I just ran into this problem this year. Is it very warm underneath your fridge? If you remove the cover in the back, you may find that you compressor is so hot you can't touch it. You can first try blowing out your cooling fins in the back of your fridge. A fan is connected to it and it should be next to the compressor. For my case that did not work. I then replaced the fan for the cooling fins and now my fridge works fine.

Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. side by side Refrigerator with in door ice


The process of Refrigeration is for one section to be hot while cooling another section. I.e freezing in one section result in the heat build up and dissipattion else where. Any compressor working properly is going to be quite warm to the point of being hot to the touch when working NORMALLY. There is nothing that you need to do for the continued safe operation of your compressor. If your freezer has ice build up again in the near future your uint is not defrosting properly. If it functions normally after 2 or 3 days of use then you more than likely had a one time buildup of ice usually caused by someone leaving the door partially open

Pull the refrig out from the wall , and remove the rear panel . Touch the compressor and feel if its hot or running . If the compressor is cool , then the main control board is bad ( since the compressor isn't running ) . If you can solder , you can repair the board (another paragraph ) . If the compressor is warm , then you could have a thermistor or 2 bad . This would have to be checked by a technician , unless you know how to get into the diagnostics procedure . Also , see if the compressor cooling fan is working and the black squirl cage is clean of dust .

Area around freezer door is very hot to the touch. ice maker works, but after awhile the ice will melt. freezer is freezing.


HI, That area being hot is a sign the refigerator is not cooling properly. We need to pin point the cooling problem.
First, are you noticing any frost build up inside the rear freezer panel?
Are the fans and the compressor running?
Please let me know so I can assist you through this.

Freezer not freezing and fridge not cooling


Check the back wall of the freezer for ice buildup.
If yes, a defrost parts problem.
Check the freezer fan. Is it running?
If no, replace the freezer fan.
Check the condenser fan at the compressor. Is it running?
If no, is compressor hot?
If compressor is hot replace condenser fan motor.
If compressor is not hot.
Replace the compressor start relay.

Amana side by side not cooling


sounds like the start relay on the compressor is bad. take the model number and make to the parts hopuse and have them get you the start relay for your refrigerator. the relay is on the compressor underneith the black cover on the side of the compressor. shut off power and take a screw driver and remove the clip that holds the cover on and you will see the relay. good luck and thanmks for using FixYa

Frig is warming while freezer is staying cold.


No, A compressor will get hot for about three reasons.

Low refridgerant.
Lack of airflow, (maybe due to very dirty coils or bad condensor coil fan on modes with a fan)
Or high amp draw. (which would mean you have a bad compressor)

Its more common to be one of the first two, especially low refridgerant.
