My bottom mount french door refrigerator, the upper part does not cold, it's warm


Hi,
Sorry your having trouble so soon!
First thing you need to check is inside the freezer section.
The freezer fan, the fan is W10128551 and should be running
along with the main compressor. Since the freezer is working,
I would check the food on the top drawer or on the freezer door shelf.
They too might be soft..without the fan.
I would You tube 'evaporator fan motor replacement Amana bottom freezer model' Yes I know it say's Whirlpool, but your unit is really
a Amana designed unit. I would give this a difficulty of 3 out 5 wrenches.. Take your time..

The fan is running, the fridge trys to start the compressor frequent, but it stops in one minute.


That sounds like short cycling and could be defective compressor start relay, overload and Capacitor need to be replaced. The longer it tries to start the hotter the compressor gets so I believe until these parts=> 67005560 Start Relay With Overload and Run Capacitor 65889-4 are checked or replaced you need to unplug. It also could be your compressor is not in good shape. If you would like to test your compressor follow these instructions here=> Whirlpool Products The location for these parts are here=> Maytag MFD2560HES and in photos part 10 and 11. I will assist you in any way if needed, Thanks, Sea Breeze
Make sure both fans run at all times compressor runs because fans do not always stop when they go bad. They run when they want to.

You have two fans and a compressor which could be making the noise. Inside the freezer behind the back cover is the evaporator fan. It probably stops running when you open the door. Hold the door switch down to keep the fan running to see if it's making the noise.
the compressor and other fan is under the unit accessed from the back behind the cardboard cover.

The sound you hear is the Freezer Fan, this problem is hard to diagnose, because the fan spins but not fast enough to circulate chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. The minimum labor and material cost for the repair/replacement is around $300.00. But if you chose to make the repair yourself the motor alone costs around $80.00@appliancefactoryparts.com. But the repair is very labor because the electrical connection for this fan is at the rear of the unit
