Question about Amana Refrigerators

Open Question

Need info on Amana SXD25JBW

I have an Amana side-by-side (SXD25JBW) that is having compressor
problems. Our local fridge guru is going to install a start kit (or something
like that---basically a big monster capacitor) on the start capacitor to try
and---as I understand it---kick-start the compressor. There's just one
problem: where is the start capacitor? He said it's normally right next to
the compressor, but it isn't there.

Anyone familiar with this fridge?

Thanks in advance.....

SOURCE: Need to Install a Supco 3 n 1 start capacitor

3 in 1 starters like the supco that you have pictured can and will cause premature failure of your compressor. newer compressors are not designed to handle the start up current the 3-n-1 provides. I reccomend replaing wiht an original oem part the part number is 8201786. If you still want to use the hard start use the 410 model obviously hook up the red white and blak wires to the compressor the 2 left over leads will connect to the 2 original wires that come in to the compressor I beleive they are red and white. polarity does not matter. good luck Peyton

An Amana fridge SRD520TW has started tripping the house's main circuit board.


The start capacitor on the compressor may have failed. There is a chance that a defrost heater element has shorted to a metal part of the fridge.

Light on but not cold


We could use a few more details to identify the problem. Does the fridge turn on fine and run (is there a noise at the back?) Does the back get warm at all? Have you defrosted it recently? most similar fridges do not have a resettable "pressure switch". some have a resettable thermal cutout on the compressor, usually on the side. unplug the fridge from power before rooting around the compressor area. Hope this helps - awaiting more info :)

My Amana side by side refrigirator does not cool. No fan or compressor comes on. Lights work inside. It is just getting warmer. It feels cool on the sheetmetal in back of the fridge.


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
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
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

Amana abb2224dew repairman installed part # 8201786. This was to replace the compressor start up. Worked for a week, then same buzz click sequence occurs. Looked up part number. Part is for mostly...


The replacement compressor kit is #12002633 from Amana (Now Whirlpool).
In this kit are the following New model compressor, relay/capacitor, jumper and instructions.
Kenmore does not make appliances rather all of the other manufacturers produce for them.
That part number is for Whirlpool Start Relay/Capacitor and as long as the compressor is the right horsepower for the relay it makes no difference who made it. (Techumseh or Embraco)

My Amana fridge (model ARSE67RBB) compressor has stopped working. It locks up when it gets too hot, and then makes a high pitched buzzing sound. I purchased the fridge used, so I don't think Amana is...


The buzzing noise is the compressor stalled and trying to start. Is the condensor fan working? (the fan at the back by the compressor) as if it's not it could cause this issue. If the rest of the unit is in good condition then yes I'd replace the compressor as these are normally good models and aren't cheap to buy new. This problem shouldn't happen again if you have a good new compressor installed by an expert. cheers

Compressor working but Fridge and Freezer not cooling - Amana


It sounds like the same problem my brother is having with his. I took it apart and found that the fan that moves all the air for cooling is not working. This fan is behind the bottom panel in the freezer side, and sorry you do have to take everything out to get to it.
