Plug in frig starts cooling will make a thin layer of ice in trays and frig fresh food will start to cool down then cooling stops and fan is still running. Unplug wait 30 min plug back in and starts...


That problem may take a little work finding but that is no problem if you can pull away from the wall and unplug. Then remove the lower cover that covers the compressor area so you can feel the top of the compressor. Feeling the top of the compressor tells me several things like if it has been running all this time or if very hot it will tell me that the compressor has been short cycling. Compressors short cycle for a few reasons and one is the start components photo #8 and #4 in this photo here=> ASD2628HES_COMPRESSOR_Components Another reason may be the evaporator fan or the condenser fan #20 in the photo link above are not staying on or there is an airflow restriction. When the compressor runs there should be a good steady flow of warm air from below the refrigerator. That warm air is the warm conditions being removed from inside your refrigerator. The most likely reason for this is the start relay/overload or number 4 in the photo has become defective. That is this=> Relay Overload with Start Capacitor

With that part out and able to get the=> 65889-4 15uf run_capacitor
out I would carry the run capacitor to a local refrigeration dealer and ask if they would test your run capacitor for free. I will be here if you should have questions beyound what I have mentioned here today, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Amana ASD 2620HRZ side by side not cooling at all!


if all of that is running your ref. should be cooling.can you hear your compressor running?or can you hear it run for a few seconds and click.If you hear a clicking noise the relay to compressor has gone bad,if it is running then you have a leak in the sealed system.

Refrigerator part not cooling, freezer is fine Amana TXI18JW (top freezer model) I noticed in the last week or so that my refrigerator was slowly starting to warm up, so I started to turn the dial up on...


There is a vent that is connected from the freezer down to the fridge right where the fan is,make sure nothing is blocking it.

Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me or

1999 Amana BB20/BRS20 refrigerator not cooling


Take the back cardboard panel off of the back and feel if the compressor is hot. alsocheck to see if the condensor fan is running. if the fan is inop, change it. If the compressor is hot, find a clamp on amp probe and clamp it on one of the wires going to the compressor.If the reading is over 5, you have a bad compressor. You may be able to get by with a RCO410 three in one hardstart.
