pull the unit from the wall, remove the bottom back panel , see if the small fan is working ,if the fan is , there's probally alot of dust back there,unplug the fridg. and vacuum the area real good,use a flash light to make sure you get it all, if the fan is not working and the compressor is running the fan is the problem ,the fan keeps the compressor and coils cool so the freon can cool down so the unit works like it should,if the freon is hot ,the air the fridg.will be blowing will be hot. this should fix your problem, and YES its worth fixing.alittle p.m.saves alot of $$$$$$$$$
If in the previous cases you could hear the compressor and the fan and now you can't then it's clearly an all-together different and unrelated problem: in the first case everything worked , but not at peak performance because the freon has escaped during the life of the fridge (something normal, it happens to all) so the air flowing thru the coil wasn't cooled enough, now nothing works because the control board of the fridge has failed completely.
This is not going to be an easy fix: at least the control board will have to be replaced and the rest of the components checked for faults - since the board rarely just dies out of nothing. It's a much more complicated job and it's going to be much more expensive to fix. Considering the age of the fridge i really doubt that it's worth the bill - at least $400. Just cut your losses and buy a new one.
Have you pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned or used a vacum cleaner to get out the dirt and dust off the back of the coils, or if the coils are underneath, you need to get an inexpensive appliance brush for fridge, and clean the coils under the fridge, pull off the panel on the front bottom of the fridge, get a flash light and look to see if the coils are covered in dust....may just need to vacum and use appliance brush underneath...this should be done at least one a year, you will notice your fridge running much better and cooling back to normal.......hope this helps......
A temporary solution for this, is to use a fan to blow some air to the back of the unit. Looks like -as you already figured- the condenser fan is broken. If your fridge starts cooling with the external fan, you may have keep it working on this way until it is fixed.
If you had previous service in your appliance, perhaps the tech guy forgot to plug the fan connecto to the power.
There are two components that are supposed to take care of this problem. One is a heater that defrosts the system (not really frost free) and the other is a timer that turns the heater on and off at predetermined intervals. If the heater or timer fails, the system will frost up and block the path of cool air not allowing the freezer to cool down.
It will likely be the fan that is in the back of your fridge that pushes the cold air up into the fridge from the freezer. Probably because the wires will have broken. You need to pull the back of your fridge out and it will be right at the bottom of your fridge at the back. It is a pretty easy fix. You will need to either replace the fan or fix the wire.
If this Amana has digital display at top in fridge more than likely the Jazzboard (control board) has failed. Check for votage at fan if you don't get any or some times if you do the Jazzboard can still have issues controling the evap.fan. I've found the Jazz board to go bad some times. Hit me back let me know. Jazz board is in the control box were the digital numbers light up.
My boyfriend is in the process of fixing my fridge. There was ALOT of ice on the back of the inside of freezer and it made it to where the fan wouldnt work. He is replacing the fan which is super easy email me at email@example.com if you need any more help
