Amana afd2535deb Frig- freezer works fine but frig doesn't cool

I have an Amana afd2535debve refrigerator that's just over one year old. Suddenly, the refrigerator is not cooling. I tried to reboot it but that didn't work. I hear a fan sound all the time, but it seems the compressor isn't coming on. I turned it up to the max, but no luck. All the lights work and freezer works fine. Thanks.Ours is over two years old and we just incurred this problem about three to four weks ago. In addition to bobfrommy's input I just noticed that the center post attached to the laft door and colapses behind the right door, is super hot to the touch. JR LaPorte, Peoria, AZ

    Thank you for your input. All seals are good. The vent appears to be open. I need to check the fan. Does the defrost circuit control power to the fan on this model? (AFD2535DEB) (Code 12)

  • jr2423 May 21, 2009

    Ok. So it would be safe to asume then, if the compressor and the compressor fan are working (as indicated by the freezer doing its job to keep its contens frozen) the eveporator fan motor is most likely the part I need to concentrate on?

    The eveporator fan was the problem. The refrigerator works again. Thank you for the help.

Hi,

Start out with the easy stuff first...make sure the lights go out when you close the door(s), make sure the doors are closing properly and the gaskets are closing fully and not torn. Check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer is working, this fan blows the cold air around. If the fan is not working, possible bad fan motor - check for power to the fan motor and also check the fan switches around the door openings, ( if your fridge has these switches, not all do ). A common problem cropping up in the last several years has been the air damper not opening up and allowing the cold air from the freezer to be blown into the fresh food section ( mostly on SxS refrigerators )

Also please read through the suggestion in the webiste provided bellow:

Thank You

    Yes .



    Fans

    Normally the interior evaporator and exterior (if present) condenser fan motors should run whenever the compressor is running and vise versa. If the timer is stopping operation of the cooling system, neither the fans nor compressor should usually be running at that time.



    If you are interested on how the defrost works please read through this article:

There is a strong acrid odour coming from my Amana refrigerator. This frig is 15 years old and has a top freezer.


It may be a refrigerant leak in the coil and it will stop working soon. When this happens it's time for a new box. 15 years is a good run.
A new coil could cost as much as a new frig and that's without labor cost.
I hope this helps

I have an Amana side by side model ARS2664BW. The unit is about 8 years old. The water dispenser on the freezer door quit working and the cooling units inside the freezer and frig are not working proper....


I did a search on Amana.com's knowledge base and didn't find anything useful regarding your two top cooling units not working.

At amana.com, I tried to download the manual, but the service was unavailable until 8/9/2010 after 8:00AM due to system upgrades.

The above is a service locator for your refrigerator. Since their site doesn't seem to have a solution for this, I would call in the pros if you want to have it fixed more quickly than trying to do it yourself.

you can have the compressor replaced for around 500usd on the norm. that would be the most inexpensive way to go compared to a new unit , it will come with a 90 day-1 year warranty.
