Refrigerator not cooling all of a sudden

I think this model is like 11 years old. model # 253.65802508 this thing sat in storage for years. i pulled it out and had it working for like a month ok but i came out the other day and all of a sudden the fridge isn't really cooling anymore. some yogurt and sandwhich spoiled. changing the settings does nothing. freezer seems to be working with fan when i open it. everything is hard as a rock on lowest setting and i see no frost.

Refrigerators, depending on what manufacturer has made them have a 15 year life span on them usually.
I had one that actually lasted 18 years, but I bought it from Montgomery Ward.
If you can have it serviced at a reasonable price then do so.

Most refrigerators do NOT cool all of a sudden, but rather gradually! If you need to cool something all of a sudden, you should consider use a freeze spray of some sort!

I have a Maytog Refrigerator; 11 years old; the freezer cools and the frig does not; unplugged it and it worked for 7 seconds and then stopped; any ideas?


My fridge stopped working for good, but I think you need to let it cool down over night if you have a cooler put ice and let it there over night. I think it will work a little longer than 7 seconds.

Not cooling sat in storage 1 year get it home and compressor runs and no cool


Hello Jim;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

I would professionally rank Amana at the top of the list for reliability and low maintenance.

If you read your owners manual it states your unit must be stored in a controlled environment. Otherwise your warrantee is void.

I have made service calls on units that were less that a year old. They were in a garage (Not controlled environment) and the warrantee was voided.

What happens is the drastic changes of temperature from winter to summer expands and contracts the brazed seal system joints and these joint leak.
Also, what happens is the condensate from humidity corrodes the electrical components as well as the control boards.

You can call a local service company to check out what needs to be replace. You are probably look at a $350.00 + service call, if it can be restored.

Neither the freezer or the refrigerator side will stay cold. It is 11 years old.


11 years old ... will not cool ... will cost about $100.00 to have it looked at and if it is a compressor, that will be another $250 or more. Efficiencies have increased significantly in the past 11 years. Might make sense to replace it. Check with your utility,they may offer a buy back plan if you upgrade your frig.

On the other hand, you could have it repaired. It could last a long time yet ... but it will be a costly repair in my guess.

Fridge in storage for 4 yrs, now not cooling


Good day,
After that much time, be sure the fan motor in the freezer compartment is running, as well as the fan motor on the back bottom behind the cover by the compressor. Either could well have frozen up after 4 years of storage.
As well a refrigerant leak could have developed because of the time frame. However, if it is less then 5 years old, the sealed system would still be under factory warranty.

no if there was oil leaking out then that means the refrigerant has leaked all out. you will have to have it repaired by a service tech.

Refrigerator not cooling


My fridge and freezer just stopped cooling all of a sudden. I hear the compressor running and every couple of min there is a clicking noise. Is there a reset switch or something that I can do to start it working again? The lights are working but the freezer and fridge are room temp.
