Re: Freezer on the bottom
Because there are many models like the model number listed above your post I will need you to confirm the model number on the refrigerator. The photo below shows were to look for the model number. Some like yours have a simple defrost system and some have circuit control boards. Everyone has these problems with every brand, Your model is Amana and also a Maytag brand. Let me know so I can help you get this going thanks, Sea Breeze

You need to have the defrost cycle checked.( heater, limit stat, timer) If the frig can't defrost air can't move across your coils to cool properly. To temporarily get by until you can get a repairman, use a blow dryer to melt the ice build up. Once melted it will work normally for about 2 days till it freezes up again.
Unplug the refrigerator and then plug back in. Using multimeter check between J3-1 and J3-4. Must be done within 10 seconds of starting. You should have 6 VDC. If you do replace damper, if not replace motherboard.
Same thing with our GE Eterna Series - off and on for the last two weeks. Took back panel off, looked around, vacuumed dust build up off of the fan blades, etc.; everything worked fine for five good days. Then frig went out stopped cooling. Off and on for the last week. Unplugging it works for a day then back to not freezing and or colling.
Domestic refrigerators nowadays are designed not to operate at temperatures less than 45 degrees. First, if it's 45 degrees in the house, people probably are not living there. 2nd, 45 degrees keeps food refrigerated. 3, if people are not living in a space, then they don't need to keep frozen food.
This is a result of the changes in refrigerants we've been going through since 1992. If you want an outdoor freezer, buy one, and make sure it's designed to be used in a non conditioned space.
if frost is building up in your freezer you have a defrost problem,is the freezer fan working?can you remove the freezer panel so you can check the defrost heat and defrost sensor?and last check the defrost timer in the frig. or on the front or back of frig.,let me know what you find-mike
hello, my refrigerator got the following problem; it works fine at the freezer but there is no cold in the frig, when i unplug it from the wall connection and after few time connect it again, it start working, after few hours, the refrigerator stop, the freezer is fine and very cool,but the frig is not cool and the refrigerator do not start working again, even after the freezer gets warm.Please i hope you can help me with this problem.
I rolled the frig forward enough so I could unplug the power cord from the outlet. Then
I removed the freezer back panel and found the evaporator coils completely encased in frost. I used hot water in a 20 ounce sqeezable water bottle to remove the caked frost from the coils. I used the back panel as a chute to route the water into a large square bucket I placed on the floor right in front of the freezer. I then disconnected the defrost heater and checked continuity with my meter on the Rx1 scale. Meter needle did not move when connected across the heater indicating that the heater was bad. Called the local parts supplier and gave them the numbers off the old part. They had it in stock for $27.31 so went and picked it up, plugged it in, put in the mounting screws, replaced the freezer back panel, and plugged the frig in. I turned both the freezer and frig thermostats to their normal position. Four hours after my better half got all the food back in the freezer and the frig, the temperature in the refrigerator was 36 degrees.
