    A service test shows that the defrost thermostat is shorted. Would replacing the thermostat resolve the warming issue?

SOURCE: Amana Mod # ABB2223DEB Refrigerator

I found this problem addressed on applianceblog.com and per they recomended part # 67006166. My repairman ordered this part and it had been superseeded by an even newer version, # 10127429. He installed that newest version in late June 2008 and it has been great ever since. So for me # 10127429 was the answer. Hope this helps

SOURCE: GE side by side refrigerator. Fridge side not cooling - help!

Hi, they have changed lots of parts, were they defected, did they tested parts for faults or they just change parts, because it's available, there's always a reason why a certain part, go bad. so far you change most of parts in ref. check refrigerant (gas, freon) pressure, check compressor, for faulty suction and high side valve, it's possible your compressor loosing efficiency. or say if compressor normally pump 50 psi. now it's pumping 40 psi. is the refrigeration cycle balance ? is there restriction in your ref. system? is compressor running long enough? plug on ref. let it run for 1hr, listen to compressor for any clicking sound, fans and everything else could be working, be compressor not, compressor could be short cycling (not working long enough) also check voltage in receptacle(outlet) with digital multi-tester, get accurate voltage reading, let me know, could also be a faulty circuit breaker in house (building) not your ref. let me know, system could have very slow refrigerant leak, you could have a very small (slow) gas leak, that's why your refrigerator get hot first, then your freezer, there's a condensate line (loop) that passes through, ref body, close to doors to prevent door gasket from freezing, after few years sometimes develope leaks, cause by rusting. it's very possible there could be small leak in your system. let me know what happened.good luck.

Hi there

Only bad news I'm afraid, the click and buzzing sound is a seized compressor, you said changed the relay and capacitor, good idea but often a seized compressor will come free if it cools for a while, unfortunately it will normally seize again fairly quickly. A job for the tech guy.

Best wishes

6 yr old Amana has stopped cooling- light is on!


To make sure there is no damage to the compressor I want you to unplug the refrigerator. I will instruct you on what to test or advise you on how the repair should take place. If this is what you want, let me know. The problem could be something simple but to do these test answer me about this solution. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Bottom freezer works fine....upper refrigerator has stopped working...


Hard to say with this description of the problem but sounds like your having a problem with the compressor starting consistantly. If it is a tecumpseh compressor it is most likely a problem. Take the back off the refrigerator and there will be sticker on the compressor that will tell what kind it is. Should say either embraco(the good kind) or will have a blue picture of an indian head (tecumpseh).
