Noggin is right might have a freon leak or control for your thermostat is broken. Your going to have to get it serviced. It is illegal in most states and ares to do this yourself with FREON.

    There is a freon plug on the back end of it for installing freon if thats what you think the problem is. If your certified you should be able to find it and know how do do this right?

    Ok, I called my local repair shop and I cant get the exact info your looking for because, he stated and i double checked, Tampering with the FREON in a REFRIGERATOR unless you are CERTIFIED to do so CAN GET YOU ARRESTED. I cannot give you information on this site that can get me or FIXYA.COM in trouble by giving you information to do something ILLEGAL because as you stated you ARE NOT a CERTIFIED REFRIGERATOR MECHANIC, DO I MAKE SENCE, IM SORRY IF THIS CAUSES YOU MORE PROBLEMS. We do not support or give out information that can potentially get us in TROUBLE BY BREAKING LAWS,(Depending in which state you are in and such).

Sounds like it needs more gas, and checking for leaks. If you have a leak tester, you can test that yourself, but topping it up has to be carried out by an authorised technician, sorry. Call your local fridge guy. Hope this helps :)

Refrigerator not cooling.


No the evaporator fan not running has nothing to do with the compressor. I would suspect that you are freezing up over the evaporator because the fan is not running and when it ices up the air can not flow through properly therefore causing the refrigerator side to get warmer. Replace the fan and you should be fine. Take the back panel inside the freezer off and see if you are all iced up. If you bare then I would replace the fan . You also said the defrost heater did not come on. That will also cause a freeze up. Possible replacement of the defrost heater may be needed. Good Luck!

Amana refrigerator has a ticking sound near the fan


could be the fan motor,compressor or when the compressor is running it could be vibration in the frame,what fan are you talking about,the condenser fan where the compressor is or the evap fan in the freezer?you just have to try and listen and feel the compressor and fan motor when it's running and try to tell were it's coming from,if it's the compressor just use it till it dies,it could run like that for years but i wouldn't take a chance,i would buy a new fridge if it's a fan motor i would fix it.

sounds like the compressor is not running. The condenser fans are located at the compressor. The fans in the conditioned space are the evap fans. A refrig usually does not have any device controlling the evap fans, they are to run 24/7. Freezers have other controls. Start there and let me know if I can help further.

Not cooling enough


sometimes you do everything proper and when repair is done another failure occurs because of long run times because not defrstng . the orginal freon charge may have been alittle on the low side and weakened the compressor what you can do is tap the seal system and add 1/2 of the orginal charge listed below the model # should be 134a this will often work for quite some time and remove the panel off the evap in the frzr and observe the frosting on the coils it should be uniform on the evap with no places getting missed if you can not tell temporily move frzr item and unplug to allow frost to thaw then plug back in and open door allow to run 30 min then look at again if only on part of the evap perhaps top or the lower then you know the orginal charge was low then add freon it sound you are very mech person and possible you may need to add the orginal charge to unit (the compressor has taken heat and it has weakened it)
