Good day, On some Amana models the evap fan motor runs thru the defrost thermostat. The purpose was to delay the fan restarting after a defrost cycle so it wouldn't blow warm air. If you can jump the defrost thermostat and the an runs, then changing the thermostat will solve your problem. Other causes on Amana could be on older models the fan was run thru the fan/light switch. If it's a rocker type switch, it could be the problem. Call the supply house where you bought the motor. Ask if the light switches are 2 or 4 terminal. Both the freezer and fresh food switches. If they are 4 terminal, then they could be the problem, or they are not depressing far enough when the door closes.
Lastly, I have come across a few Amana's where they actually had a broken wire to the motor. In all my cases it was the white wire. The area where they broke, was not at the motor but further back in the harness. You would need a VOM meter to trace the wiring.
I checked the owners manual - found that two small screws holding the bracket on came loose - reattached the screws, then de-attached the handel from left side so entire handle was off. Then slid handle on both brackets left to right until it clicked on.
My dad's freezer handle is loose, model ABB2224DEW. Went to partselect.com and located drawing of freezer door parts. Found a link to a "do-it-yourselfer" that describes removal and replacement of the handle. Hopefully this helps.
Replacement of freezer door handle. 1. Removed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle removal instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. Removing the handle requires inserting a plastic card at least 1.5 inches under the left end of the right side of the handle so it releases the butterfly clip latch on the freezer door. Next I pulled the right side of the handle to lift it away from the freezer door. Then still holding the handle away from the door, at the spot that is 1.5 inches from the inside of the right side of the handle, I held the plastic card vertically and slid one corner of it between the handle and the freezer door and worked the card down until it released the butterfly clip latch. Keeping the card at the same space under the handle so the latch was released, I then turned the card to the left until it was horizontal and was lifting the left end of the right door handle away from the freezer door. I then slid the handle across the card to the left until it cleared both door butterfly clip latches and it lifted off the door. 2. Installed freezer door handle. First I read the freezer door handle installation instructions in the Amana refrigerator user guide. The handle is curved on one edge and must be installed the curved side down. Correctly installed, the outside ends of the handle curve upward and the handle curve is down so it looks like a frowning mouth. Next holding the handle curved edge down, I turned it up so I could see the brackets and held it against the door. I lined up the handle brackets slightly to the left of the butterfly clips on the freezer door. Next I turned the handle with the brackets against the freezer door and slid it slightly to the right until the left side of the handle held onto the door butterfly clip by itself but was not latched. Then I lined up the right handle bracket with the right freezer door butterfly clip and carefully slid the whole handle to the right until I heard the left butterfly clip latch click. Next I slid the handle back slightly left once more and then slid it back to the right until I heard the right butterfly clip latch click.

sure , if you look underthe handle is there perahps a small screwhole in which you can tighten handle??this may be prior year in which case if there are no screw holes present you need to grab hold of handle and with a "brisk" pull to the right it will come off hiddenclips, the clips can be t ightened and resecure by snapping back the oppisite way the handle pullled off
