Although,I think this is the condensor fan or condersor clog
here is more info on the part in question.

On the compressor,under the cap where the wires are connected,you should see a small disk (about the size of a quarter)wired in between the the power post,It should have 1 wire to a compressor post and one to a power in wire.

It is called a thermal snap disk

Asd2522wrb04 amana side by side refrigerator. clicks like it is coming on. then goes off. nothing freezes or cold. Why?


I believe what is happening here is a defective start relay and overload. Right now I would pull refrigerator away from the wall and unplug. Next remove the cover over the compressor feel top of the compressor and if it is not possible to keep your hand there from heat tells me the compressor is trying to start. Keep unplugged until replacing the Start Relay Kit below.Most times the compressor that begins to do these symptoms can be fixed by replacing the=>

These parts can be found by removing the rear cover near floor and then pulling the cover on the side of the compressor. Click Here=> ASD2522WRB02 Unit Parts In that photo is a compressor top left of photo. Number location 13 is the cover of the part I am talking about and location 12 in that photo is the start relay and overload. If you have trouble I will be here to assist you, Thanks Sea Breeze

Amana side by side refridg/freezer. Freezer not freezing, everything defrosted. Getting a buzzing noise then a click, then buzzing stops. Compressor overload?


:
Hi!
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

It sounds like you are hearing the overload on the compressor closing. When the overload closes the relay tries to start the compressor (that might be the buzzing sound) and if the compressor doesn't start the overload opens and turns the compressor off. You will need to replace the relay on the compressor.

Amana ASD2626HEW. Smoke coming from Relay/Overload with start capacitor #PS2069268. Is this the problem or a symptom of some other problem? Will replacing this part solve problem?


If the windings in the compressor test good then you can go to the next step. Smoke is an indication of a short circuit. I will send you to a page that has information on how to test, Be Right Back, Sea Breeze

The Amana refigerator I have stopped cooling. There is power to the unit, the lights work but the unit is not cooling. The unit clicks every few minutes.


Start capacitor,start relay, overload and windings in compressor need checked. When clicking like that the compressor is overheating and could damage the internal overload. Send model number so I may tell you the correct parts. I will be here if you need, Sea Breeze

You may have a bad relay/overload part number 12555902 runs about $15 but if the compressor is going bad it may not work.If you take the relay/overload off  turn it into your hand and shake it if you it sprinkles out like a pepper shaker go with the OEM part afore mentioned,but if it sounds solid and nothing comes out go with a hard start(SUPCO RC0410 also about $15) it will buy you at least another couple years in which to shop around for a replacement or save the money for a new compressor.You can call Amana to check on the warranty but most only had five years on sealed system.

I have an Amana bottom freezer frigerator. The


Possibly a bad relay/overload or shorted run capacitor.If it was built between 2002 and 2005 it may be a bad compressor in which case you would want to check the warranty for possible coverage.
 the relay/overload and run capacitor plug right into the compressor on the left hand side.
 IF it isn't under warranty and the Oem part won't get it going pick up a 3in1 hard start for it they are easy to install and will get it working for you.

Not cooling


If it's clicking on and off like you say, replace the compressor start relay device and overload protector. These are located directly on the side of the compressor, usually contained within a dark plastic cover.
