No way!!!!! do not try to cut into the cabinet. the wires inside the cabinet will "never" fail. this "so called" repairman is wrong and needs to be sent away.
too bad you paid him to check this out but if its a company and not just a single owner then ask them for another opinion. for "free" then when they find out you have a bad main control board it will end up costing you about 300-400 bucks for a replacement.
what you need to do is call amana and ask them to see if they will recommend an authorized company give you a second opinion.
then ask if they will help with the cost of repairs. most of the time they will give you a concession for repairs.
a 2 year old unit is too new to have a major repair.
good luck with amana, as they are now owned by whirlpool, but you do have a good chance to get a free repair.

My Amana 26 cu ft side by side quit cooling entirely in the freezer and the refrigerator. Is it worth it to get a repairman or should we just get a new frig. This one is 6 years old


I suggest get help with repairman.6 year old is not very old.Refrigerators have life more then 8 to 10 years.The problem can be temperature not set properly or any of fridge or freezer door not closed properly and cool air is getting leaked out. These are basic possibilities which first need to be checked. But if these possibilities are checked ok and still the problem is same, then its weak compressor issue.

Amana AFI2538AES The refrigerator portion keeps freezing the fruits and vegetables. The chiller control is on the warmest setting and the refrigerator temp is set at 43. I have been raising every once...


Our Amana afi2538aes is doing the same thing. Had a repairman out. He called tech support at Amana. They had him adjust the "thermistors" but it is colder than ever running at 28-30degrees in the fresh food compartment despite being set at 46 degrees. Tech support also recommended installing some sort of "ice bin seal kit to take care of the problem" according to our invoice from repairman. Repairman was told that the ice bin in the fresh food compartment puts cold air out (to keep the ice frozen) which freezes the food in the fresh food compartment. I called Amana and the rep I spoke to said he couldn't find record of this being a problem with the model but tech support told our repairman "we've had a lot of problems with this happening."

Amana ABD2533DEB Bottom Freezer - Fridge not working


Sounds like the circulating fan is either gone or is going bad. This problem is hard to diagnose because sometimes the fan will run but not fast enough to circulate the air through the freezer and refrigerator. I would have your repairman look at this or if you have the know how then you can order the fan and replace it yourself.

Clicking, buzzing, compressor too hot, thawed out


Sounds like the compressor is in thermal overload. Let it cool down completely and meter the starting amperage on start to run. The compressor could be seized or it's windings could be shorted to ground (checking the resistance between the windings terminals on the compressor while unplugged will determine this.).

Kitch-aid fridge using lots of electricity and shorting circuit


the relay kit that the other repairman put on may not have been enough to fix your problem.
you may have a winding that has shorted out on your compressor. if so it has a 5 year warranty and should be fixed for no charge under warranty.
call kitchenaid and ask for them to recommend an authorized repair company to check out your unit.
use their 800 number and hopefully they will take care of your problems and you wont need to replace this unit.

Compressor under warranty, how much is the labor to fix it?


How old is it and is the repairman an indipendant company or the manufactuers repairman?

If its older than a year, and/or the repairman is indipendant then yes you probably will have to pay for labor.

Expect between 250 to 400 for the labor.

Some units have no labo warranty from the manufacturer.

If less than a year and the repairman is actually employed by AMANA directly and not a subcontractor or "authorized rapairman" then you may have a labor warranty.

Water dispenser keeps freezing!


it sounds as though there is an cold airflow problem in the fridge and as science states the cold air will drop down to the bottom of the fridge. check that any circulation fans are not jammed with ice or faulty. if not sure where to go do a defrost for 36 hours and check on all the functions after that. tone.
