Amana Freezer Model U16W compresser wont start

Freezer won't start, there is a clicking and it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't. Stops and then tries again and again. I just shut machine off so nothing would burn out

When the clicking stops, how long does it take for it to start again?

    The clicking goes on for approx 20 seconds and then off for approx 30 seconds and then clicks again and so forth continuously.

SOURCE: Buzzing intermittent

most likely the compressor relay is the clicking noise but i think the problem is most likely the compressor is starting to go bad and is lcoking up. if the refig is under 5 yrs old it is most likely still in warranty by amana

SOURCE: Buzzing intermittent

could be a relay failing, a long 2 -3 seconds hard electrical hum could be the compressor failing & the relay overload is doing it's job shutting down your overheating compressor, unplug it for 30 min plug it back in a slight hum & click off is most likely just a relay but a long hard electrical hum is bad news Compressor & if it has no warranty left on the compressor repair could run $500.00- $700.00.

SOURCE: Freezer & fridge works great for two weeks

its probably the defrost heating element located just below the evaporator coil,remove the evaporator cover and check the terminals on the element,then disconnect one wire off the element and check it for continuity

My kitchen aid fridge and freezer is not cooling


have you smelled anything burning like an electrical smell or pull the machine out,remove the bottom panel and listen to see if you can hear a clicking sound coming from the compressor like every 3 to 5 minutes,you could have a bad start device located on the side of the compressor or a bad computer board,also if you remove the bottom kick panel you should find a tech sheet either tucked in the panel or taped inside the cabinet down there,it will tell you how to do some tests,when you open the freezer door,do you hear the fan running,if so i'd start at the start device,unplug the machine,remove the clip and cover on the side of compressor slide off the device and shake it,if it sounds like there's pieces rattling around in it that's the easiest way to check it
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Start-Device/67005560/1159182
this is the new device or read out the overload and relay with meter,the compressor will probably be red hot so keep it unplugged it ain't cooling anything anyway and you won't damage the compressor

here's a picture of the board part number 5 and board number W10207861,it definitely sounds like the compressor so i'd check the start device first.hope this helps

Amana ars2464 won't make ice


first check that the icemaker is getting water

second, check the temperature in the freezer. the freezer needs to be below 10 degrees to work.

if both check out, then you need a new icemaker

I have been doing refrigeration for over 30 years and I have never seen a compressor with a chip inside of it. Have you tried cleaning the condensor coils? I almost sounds like you have a weak start capacitor. Let me know if i can help you any futher.
