Question about Amana ARB2517CC / ARB2517CB / ARB2517CW Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
My freezer is cool but not freezing. My compressor is running constantly and is HOT to the touch however the condenser coil is room temperature. Typically the condenser coil is warm?
Check to see if the fan is running down in the back by the compressor, if it isn't put a small fan back there blowing on the compressor, also make sure the compressor is running you can unplug it and block the fan by the compressor wait a few minutes and plug it back in so you can hear the compressor to see if it is running. if it hums and then clicks you probably have a bad relay and overload assy.

Testimonial: "Sorry I should have put more details in my first post. The bottom fan and all the internal fans are running fine. After my initial posting I found another posting which described the symptoms I was having perfectly. The suggestion was to replace the compressor starter relay and capacitor. I removed my starter relay and disassembled it and found it was full of black carbon. I quite amazed it was passing any current at all. So today's goal is to find a replacement relay locally. Thanks for the follow up. Erik"

You have a sealed system problem. There is either a small leak or a restriction somewhere in the tubing. This isn't something you could've caused so don't worry about that. Unfortunately this isn't something you can fix yourself either. You require a certified refrigeration technician to fix this problem.

Check the thermostat, to make sure that it is working properly. The theremostat is a long wire in the top of the freezer up near the fan. If that is bad it will not let your freezer cool correctly

Yes, if defrost board is bad it will cause problems. Need to listen for fan inside the freezer compartment also. If freezer does not defrost cold air will not circulate properly causing warmer temperatures inside refrigerator. Is model number SXD524VW ?
Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
