I was having this same problem and just fixed it. When you close the freezes door the switch turns off the light (everyone know that). That same switch also turns on an evaporator motor and fan that comes on. If ice builds up in the freezer treys, it will cause this motor and,or fan to make noise. My freezer had a piece of ice stuck in the maker. I broke it free, and the noise stopped. If you don't have ice built up on yourself, you may need to replace the motor (AND fan) located behind the panel in the back of the freezer. Good luck!

The light is switched on and off by a small lever which is pushed when closing or opening the door. This operates a microswitch. It would not make any grinding noise. Grinding noise can come from the fanmotor which would also stop when the fridge door is open.

How do a fix a refrigerator which makes a clicking noise when light in freezer is off? If I open the freezer door it stops. If the door is open and I depress the light switch, it starts the noise aga

That's a weird one. It sounds like the switch operates a relay that cuts off power, and the relay is "chattering." If so, the only way to stop it is to replace the relay. Call a technician if you're not comfortable getting into the inner workings of your freezer yourself.

I have an Amana Refrigerator. It is a double door on top and a pull out freezer on the bottom. The freezer is working fine. The refrigerator light comes on but it is not cold and my fresh food is fading...

either the evaporator fan in the damper vent door isnt running to push cold air from the freezer up into the refrige compartment or the damper vent door between the freezer and refrige section is frozen shut and cannot open to allow cold air flow,you need to access the evaporartor coil in the freezer rear wall and check both the fan and door movement

Bottom freezer seem to be fine top warm?

couple things to start off with is make sure the fan from freezer section is still blowing...may have to with door open hold down door switch as they sometimes stop running when you open door...if the fan is still running,then is the back wall of freezer frosted up you could have a defrost problem a defrost thermostat, or a heater issue... last make sure you have a clear passage from the freezer to the refrig such as the airflow gap or damper assembly which will be either a manually damper or a automatic damper//this is the flap that opens and closes usually by temperature to let air from freezer to refrigerator side....also make sure the unit all together is running properly the freezer is the last part to give you a problem as this is where the coolant actually starts then is pushed into refrigerator....few things for you to check repost if you have anymore questions....good luck

The freezer area makes constant noises groaning whne door is closed, stops when door is opened

I'm going to say it's a bad bearing in the fan. It shuts off when the door is opened so as to waste as little coldness as possible.

Freezer door opens when fridge door closes

if you are worried that the freezer is empty....fill it with plastic bottles of water...remember tho,don't fill the bottles completely as frozen water expands.

My Amana frost-free freezer is accumulating frost all along the back wall. And, things at the front aren't freezing. What is the problem? (Things in the refrigerator are still cold)

I think the good thing about this is your model has a defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel. Look for a hole or plastic plug covering a hole about the size of a pencil and place a small flathead screwdriver in hole and slowly turn clockwise until the compressor and fans stop. This should begin the defrost cycle and remain off for about 25 minutes. Open freezer door and listen for crackling or noise of water melting and sizzling. If after 25 minutes the refrigerator does not restart slowly turn the timer clockwise again until it starts. Tell me what you find, Sea Breeze
