My Amana AFD2535DEW freezer problem

My Amana AFD2535DEW freezer is making a clicking sound that stays on for approximately then stops.  The refrigerator is holding temperature at 38-41 degrees but the freezer is at 40 degrees.  A few days ago when it was doing this I unplugged it for an hour then plugged it back in and the temp in the freezer got to 0 degrees.  It is like it is stuck in the defrost cycle.  The freezer setting is 4 and the frig setting is 4.

Re: My Amana AFD2535DEW freezer problem

Sound like the compressor is having trouble starting. You can purchase a RCO810 to assist the compressor's start winding. If the unit is under 5yrs there should be some warranty (no electrical parts) left in the compressor. It will need to be replaced.

Mine did the same thing about two years ago. It turned out, my problem was the little motor that opens the vent in the refrig portion to let the cold air in from the freezer went bad. A&E service tech said this was common. Cost about $90 to fix. Haven't had the problem anymore.

Amana AFD2535DEW freezer/refrigerator with intermittent tempurature swings

I had the same issue. It was the relay overload which essentially provides the extra boost to get the compressor going. The switch tries for about 10 seconds before giving up and then retries 3 - 4 minutes later. In the early stages of failure, eventually it will work and the compressor will kick on. But eventually the switch will fail and will just cycle through the 10 second attempt every 3 to 4 minutes. The part is about $35 - part number 67005560.
