Question about Amana ARB2217C Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Compressor does not start

Same problem as jalioto Sep 24, 2007 Armana ARB2217CSL. No refrigeration or freezing. Fans are working. When compressor tries to go on buzzing for 30-45 seconds then clicks off. What parts should I start replacing or is it the compressor. Where is the start motor?

    solution was found under bandygirl problem with kenmore trio/french door.

    we gave up repair guys were 15 days out. we bought a new fridge. the old one will live in the garage. I'll start with the supco rco810 part but it seems that i will have to start saving for a new compressor.

    That compressor is under warranty through amana for 5 years. Will you consider a solved rating?? I feel i solved your question, solved doesnt mean the unit is necessarily repaired.

Armana APN14K-E portable AC freezes up


Lack of air flow or a lack of refrigerant are the two primary reasons why coils freeze. Clean the filter and the coil, if frost continues it is likely low on refrigerant.

If you have power to the plug, then it is either the start capacitor, the start relay or the compressor. IIf it is the compressor it is a major expense, so you will decide how much you are willing to invest in an old one, before you buy a new one.

Whrilpool refrigerator model ed25te will not cool or freeze. lights are on, fan works


Your compressor may be trying to start and have a bad start capacitor, start relay or overload. If you hear the fans that tells me the thermostat has also told the compressor to start. Unplug and pull away from the wall. remove lower cover over the compressor area and feel the compressor on the top. If too hot to keep you hand there leave the refrigerator unplugged until we locate why the compressor is trying to start but will not. tell me the age of your refrigerator. I will keep checking for a response from you and will be here to help, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refrig is not cooling


. The most common problem is a bad start relay on the compressor. In rare cases the compressor may be bad. If you are mechanically inclined you can replace the relay yourself for less than 50 dollars. You will need model and serial number off of the unit and order the part by those numbers. if the compressor is bad you will need to hire a good service company
