I have a Sears Maytag with a cooling problem. Meat is frozen but bread is soft. I am told it is a Amana. It is a bottom freezer. Did this part fix your problem. Let me know, I am going to rip mine down in the am. Bandit98

its in the freezer near the top if its not cooling I would check ur air damper flow control, is it to far close or opened? check the cold control thermostat, the thermistors. and of course the fan itself, check door seals.

I have an Amana fridge/freezer which is freezing only at the bottom of the freezer and also in the bottom of the fridge however the rest of the fridge and freezer are only just cool. The fridge is...

It is important to shut off the fridge for few hours so that the system cools down and the compressor resets. Now check the thermostat settings, check also the position of the freezer settings.
After the fridge is switched on , if there are no issues then the auto frost timer can be a suspect. If not the thermostat must be checked. check if frost has build up to prevent cooling.

I have an amana fridge model # arb190rcw.nothing remains frozen in the freezer.and i have noticed ice on the back wall of the freezer compartment

Your cooling coils have frosted so much that there is ice forming allover the cooling coils and preventing the actual cooling inthe fridge. First of all shut off the fridge for about 10 hours and wait for all the ice to defrost. Clean up your fridge well and then check inside of the freezer compartment for break in wiring, failure of the heater or the thermostat. Now put the fridge on and see if the cooling comes back.If the set works ok then dont worry till you experience the same fault coming back. In this case your auto defrost timer could be faulty as it is not doing the 8 hours cycle defrosting. Check this out test and replace . Get help if you are not familiar. good day

Youu most likely have a defective defrost thermostat in this model. It is located behind the cover in the freezer compartment and is a small round device with two wires attatched to it. It is attatched to the freezer coils on the top right hand side. It ususally has an orange and a brown wire connected to it.
Part number is 12001937 and should cost about 23.00. This part should read "closed" on a continuity check when it is frozen, and opens when it is warmed above about 55 degrees.
The idea behind this part is to shut off the heater during defrost should it get too warm in the evaporator area, however when they fail it does not allow the heater to come on.

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.

Amana energy saver not keeping fridge section cool enough. HELP!

if there is frost build up on rear wall of freezer section the unit is not going through defrost cycle which builds up frost on evaporator and restricts cold air flow to the fresh food section. one of three things are bad. defrost heater, defrost thermostat or defrost timer. if no frost on rear wall you might be low of freon.
