Question about Amana ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I have an Amana ARB2205CS that is 6.5 yrs old. It stopped cooling/freezing and the relay clicks on/off every 2.5 min with a 10 sec buzz between clicks. Replaced the overload relay, plugged in unit and it started cooling just fine. A couple hours later it started doing the buzz/click cycle again and the freezer warmed up again. Obviously teh relay was not the problem. Is this a faulty defrost timer that interferes with the cooling cycle once the first defrost cycle is initiated?
Also does it have condencer fan on the comp is this working ?if not comp is over heating it needs that fan

No, the relay was what caused the buzz click but i think a bad compressor could be responsible for blowing the relays out. If you had a bad defrost timer that was stuck in defrost thus compressor not running you would not get the buzz click..your comressor would also be cold.

Yes your compressor is coming to a stop. There was a 5yr warranty I am sure but if it's 6.5yrs now it's still beyond coverage. I would call some authorized companies familiar with these models who replace the compressors. Not all companies do. Shop around for the best price. I am sure you can do better than $700. I can usually compete that job in 1.5hrs. And the replacement is a great compressor.

So bhasell, I'm unsure from these posts whether you ended up solving your problem. I am having exactly the same one (on a uints that just 3 years old) so I'd be very interested if you've solved it. My repair guy is talking about replacing the compressor, but it still seems to me that it has to do with the electronics that control the compressor (as the latter works sporatically).
