Question about Amana ATB1832AR Top Freezer Refrigerator
The fan is remaining on all the time because the temperatures can not be satisfied. You have three things that can cause this and they are number 1 The defrost time, second the defrost element and the last is the defrost thermostat. Now I can help you do the test if you like. The defrost timer part number is 63001353 And in photo below you will see it located in the fresh food section and behind the plastic cover on the control panel. There is a small opening the size of a pencil eraser through the plastic cover you can stick a flat head screwdriver through to slowly turn clockwise until compressor stops. The compressor should remain off for about 25 minutes. During that time you can open the freezer door and possibly hear a crackling or or a sizzle noise of the defrost taking place. If the timer does not turn the refrigerator compressor back on after about 30 minutes you an turn it again slowly clockwise until the compressor restarts. If you need to do this action the defrost timer is the reason and will need to be replaced. Let me know if this is helpful or ask bo60 or myself to answer your questions. We are here to get you fixed. So please respond to what happened when you tested the defrost timer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Fan usually keeps running when cooling is not satisfying. Check to see if the freezer is icing up at the back. If iced is built up, manually turn the timer and see if this activates and starts the defrost mode. If defrost cycle starts, then the timer is bad. If defrost does not start then it coud be the thermostat or element.

Here is the basic idea on how to keep the
refrigerator, air conditioner, or vacuum cleaner to work properly. Air is moved
by an electric fan or blower in order for that product to work properly. If air
movement is blocked the fridge won't get cold, the central air conditioner
won't cool enough, the vacume cleaner won't clean as well. Check on your
fridge's air movement by inspecting the bottom of the fridge for dust and cob
webs. Remove the front bottom clip-on plastic grill. Or also even access the
lower back of the fridge by removeing
the screws holding up the heavy cardboard cover to see inside. Blockage
of air flow will prevent a fridge from getting cold. Just like a vacuum
cleaner stops working when the bag is filled with dust and fibers. The air could be blocked by the accumulation of dust and
fibers. Look under your fridge if it is
cloged, it will look just like the stuff on a dirty central air filter.
Dust and fiber buildup blocking the fridge's air
movement from back to front (or visa-versa) of your fridge will slowly (years)
prevent how good it cools. The build-up of dust and cobwebs prevents your
fridge from cooling (more specifically prevents the heat to disapate
from the metal heat disipating fins
attached to the metal tubes to be blown off by the fans air). OK! Remedy
for a vacuum cleaner REPLACE THE CLOGED VACUUM BAG.
Remedy for your fridge manually REMOVE THE
CLOGING DUST AND FIBERS FROM UNDER YOUR FRIDGE. SORRY fridge
manufacturers do not provide a dust filter like the vacume cleaner and central
air systems manufacturers do. You have to figger out
the best way you can clean it. Possibly vacuum with a crevice tool, or use
a small brush than vacuum. The extreme would be unplug
the fridge ( so you won't get electrocuted) bring
a water hose into the kitchen and spray water at cobweb buildup at the bottom
fridge, than wet vac the floor then wait
20 minutes to dry before pluging the fridge back into the electric outlet.
When you stand in front of your fridge and you hear the fridge electric motor turn on, the fan will blow air out the bottom.The fridge
