Amana Refrigerator Model BR22TW stops cooling for long periods

I have an Amana bottom freezer unit. Recently, I've been noticing that the the freezer keeps everything frozen but ice cream, which is typically frozen but very soft or melted in the middle. This morning I wake up to find everything in the fridge warm, but the freezer items are frozen (minus the ice cream). This has happened in the past. At that time I unplugged the fridge and let it thaw overnight. After that I plugged it in and It worked ever since. That was probably 6 months ago. I also recall (and tried this time) turning the temp dial to the coldest setting... and the fridge doesn't turn on. I hear nothing turning on, no clicking, nothing. Silence. It almost makes sense that the temperature control switch is not working or a thermostat. Any suggestions what the problem is?

Sounds as if you have a bad timer or a cold control They can be replaced. Most likely it is the cold control

SOURCE: Everything in the freezer has defrosted

Is there frost on the freezer panel? are the two motor and compressor running (freezer motor and condenser motor)? find this out 1st. this is nothing you did but if you are not mechanically incline at this point only a frig tech can properly check and tell you exactly what is it. theres are the things it might be...
compressor not working
condenser not running
freezer fan not running
thermostat not sensing temp.
stuck in defrost
heaters on too long
bi-metal shorted
timer not working
now if you paid alot for this frig at least get someone to look at it for a service call ($40-60) if it too high to repair then its time to get a new one

Amana ABC2037DEB after 4 years, now freezer click and hum melting


that click followed by a hum can only be one thing
pull the unit out and feel the compressor, if its really hot you have a relay and overload issue, and it struggles to start.
with any luck, it is the external relay and overload found mounted to the comresssor should be a lil white block
if not it will be two differant parts
a lil white one and a brown one
let these cool a bit and check both for continutity
ive included a link for the parts
they are 10 and 11 on the schematic
