Sounds like your Freezer Fan is wearing out. When this happens it is very hard to diagnose. The reason is that the fan is turning, but at far less rpm's then iss necessary to keep the air circulating thru the freezer and refrigerator. Then minimum cost to repair/replace this fan is $300.00. But this will releave the problem.

The bottom freezer works but the refrigerator will not get cold. model# MFF2557HES


Sounds like airflow fan needs to be replaced. Most fridges use a small fan that blows air from the freezer to the refridge. If that fan fails you get working freezer and non cool fridge.

Ice build-up water leak


sheck the back wall of the freezer where it sits in that trough, more often than not this complaint is the fault of a defrost drain. if you can try to remove the back panal on the freezer, if its a defrost issue there willl be a huge amount of ice behind that panal blocking the defrost drain.
after you chip what you can away, you'll find that a hair dryer and hot water are the best way to get that drain clear so it wont happen again

Refridge is not cold freezer is fine


You have ice on the temp control door that has blocked air flow. You will need to pull off the back inside panel of the freezer and de-ice it or have a tech do it and test the defrost controller. That is most likely the reason for the freeze up in the first place. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Amana bottom freezer problem


It sounds like the condenser coil might be freezing up. This happened to me on my bottom freezer. The cooling part of your fridge is only in the back of the freezer compartment. The cold air from the freezer blows up through a vent in the back to the fridge and comes out at the top. If the coils do not defrost (which is what happened with mine) the air flow is blocked by the ice and can't get to the fridge compartment. Your freezer will still be cold but your fridge won't. If you pull the plug on it and time things right you can defrost the coils but this will only postpone the problem. Both will work for awhile again until the coils ice up again. You can also pull out the freezer drawere and try to defrost the coil with a blow dryer. You have to disconnect the icemaker and pull out the back panel behind the freezer to get to it though.

FREezer works fine,frig will not go less than 40 degrees and unit never cuts off


the problem is the freezer drain is plugged up. when the fridge goes into defrost,the water that is suppose to drain out has no where to go. so it refreezes . that ice has plugged up the blend air vents between the freezer & the fridge.
1st put your food in a cooler. Unplug the refridge.
(you may want to take pictures as you go.for the reassembling)
open up the freezer, remove the rear panel, & the bottom panel (if possible)
you will see the coils, underneith the coils you will see an metal tray. it will probly have ice on it.
with a blow dryer, heat the ice till you see the drain . now that drain has to be cleaned out.
that drain runs down to the bottom of refridge into a drain pan. with a wet vac , attach it to the drain tube, until you fell suction in the freezer. small amounts of hot water does help.
( it usually gets plugged up from bugs)

next , open the fridge ,on the ceiling of the fridge.there will be a plastic cover (most models) remove the cover carefully. usually there are 2 passiges from the freezer to the fridge. that is where the cold air drops into the fridge. there will probally be ice in these passages, which has to be removed.(be careful with the stirofoam)

once you have cleaned out all the ice ,reinstall all those pieces.
plug back in the refridge.It will tak a day for it to get cold again.( hint get 2 bags of ice to help speed up the cooling down process)

Freezer is cold and collecting frost, refrig isn't cooling.


you may have to remove the floor of the freezer. At times they fill with water and freeze. and you cannot see the layer of ice under there. This ice can form in the channel that allows the cold air into the fridge. another suggestion would be to put the fridge on the lowest setting then raise it up about 3-4 hours apart. hope this helps. Good luck.
