It has been running for 15 hours now and temp is only at 4 degrees even though I have set it 3 times to zero today. any thoughts?

Re: my amana fridge wont stop running after l turned it...


You didn't say exactly what the fellow did. The thermostat (cold control??) should deal with both the freezer and refrigerator. Usually, the freezer is regulated and the fridge goes along for the ride. You can usually adjust the vents to make that work out. Your friend may not have properly installed the control or it could be defective. Does the control turn the unit off? If not, the problem is definitely there. I'd have the control checked or replaced again before going on to anything else. I doubt you did anything to hurt the unit by not unplugging it.

You didn't say if the unit is frosting up. 30 year old units can be low on gas. Unfortunately, the type of gas they used back then is only available from a licensed tech.

Amana evaporative fan intermittent

I would first suspect that the fan motor shaft just has gunk on it keeping it from starting -- clean & lubricate both ends of the motor.

If this doesn't solve the problem, it's the motor start capacitor -- could be inside the motor housing or could be outboard, connected to it via the wiring harness. A capacitor is a lot cheaper than a fan...

Amana side-by-side fridge freezer only cold at the bottom

yes the evap fan in the frezer should be running when the compressor is running[it may not for a minute or so as it starts up.Amana's are good for the connectors at the evap fan motor comming apart.the connectors are white and will look like its together but when you pull it will come apart.i would always cut the connector out and use a wire nut so wont happen again.if any other questions please email thru FixYa and i will be glad to help.
