Pull it away from the wall and remove the cover the covers the compressor. Unplug and tell me if the compressor is too hot to touch or if running or any signs of life. If not running and cool I want plug it back in, and open the fresh food door and and look for a hole in the control panel where you adjust temperatures. The opening is about the size of a pencil eraser. Sometimes this hole is covered by a plastic plug. Stick a small flathead screwdriver slowly clockwise until the compressor restarts. If this works the refrigerator needs a new defrost timer. Sometimes the defrost timer will stick in defrost and stop. Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

My Black Amana sxs Model SCD25JPW Fridge isn't cooling. Both sides are hot

OK, lets try a couple of things before you run out and buy a new unit. On that unit I believe the defrost thermostat is on the front bottom of the unit. Turn the little dial til it clicks and tell me if the unit kicks on.

if your freezers back wall has a layer of frost build up on it,that means the defrost heater or thermostat that controls this heater is bad,if theres an ice buildup on the evaporator coils it cant blow cold air into the unityou need to find out whats bad as it can no longer defrost,when you shut it off for a day you are defrosting the unit,then the frost and ice again cover the coil when you plug it back in

I have an Amana side by side. Freezer and refrigerator gets warm. Took back panel off and coils are frozen. melted the ice off and works great for about 2 weeks and then does the same thing. What can I...

Probably your defrost timer or the defrost element. If you take the leads off of the element and test it with an ohmmeter you'll be able to determine if it's blown.

The Amana refigerator I have stopped cooling. There is power to the unit, the lights work but the unit is not cooling. The unit clicks every few minutes.

Start capacitor,start relay, overload and windings in compressor need checked. When clicking like that the compressor is overheating and could damage the internal overload. Send model number so I may tell you the correct parts. I will be here if you need, Sea Breeze

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan stops spinning after 15 mins

Capacitor, dirty condencer coil causing the motor amps to run too high. But most likely worn bearing on blade side of motor causing it to pull to one side causing it to over heat and shut down. Sleve bearings should have no side play.

Bottom vegetable/fruit drawer freezing fruit

to the left of the bottom drawer is a veg/meat slide switch.make sure it is all the way on veg.if it is on meat,it opens a small doorway to the freezer and lets the cold air in and will freeze the food in the bottom some cases,you will need to remove the drawer and shelf and then take apart the doorway.ball up some putty and jam it it the hole to completely seal it off
