Amana DRB2201CW refrigerator does not get cold

The refrigerator doesn't get cold, but the freezer compartment appears to work fine. We tried all the suggestions in the manual, but no luck. I think something has failed, such as the thermostat or coil. We recently (about a year ago) had the compressor replaced with complete success. But now the fridge compartment won't get cold.

You may have an obstruction in the air vent from the freezer compartment to the frig .there should be an airflow adjustment next to the thermostat. Middle setting is recommended. Since you say the freezer is working properly, I cannot see any other possibility. hope this helps.

Mod# ABB1922FEW... the freezer works fine but the refrigerator is warm, there is very little food in the freezer.


If the vent from the freezer to the refrigerator is not blocked with food or paper particles, then it's likely the defrost system is not working properly. You will need a technician to determine the cause.

Refrigerator is not getting cold although the freezer appears to be working fine


can you hear the evaporator fan motor running in the freezer? this fan motor pushes the cold air from the freezer to the food section to keep it cold. you may have to replace the evap. fan motor. also, check for any kind of ice build up around the evap fan motor.

Working fridge, warm freezer.


The fresh food compartment is cooled by air being blown from the freezer compartment into the fresh food compartment.

There is a panel, or door if you will, that separates the freezer and fresh food compartments. The freezer temp control determines how much cold air is allowed to escape into the fresh food compartment by opening or closing this panel.

In your case, the door must be stuck all the way open, allowing all the cold air to be diverted into the fresh food compartment. The compressor cycle is controlled by the thermostat in the fresh food compartment and thus 'short cycles' because the fresh food compartment acheives normal temperature while the freezer is relativel warm.

If the panel is restricted from moving (stuck in the extreme open position, for example), the fresh food compartment will get VERY cold while the freezer will be warm.

Try thoroughly defrosting the refrigerator. Possibly an accumulation of ice is preventing the panel from moving and/or is diverting all the cold air from the freezer into the fresh food compartment. It's a free fix and may solve your problem altogether.

If that doesn't help, or helps only temporarily, you may have a problem with panel/door/flap itself or the linkage that connects it to the control mechanism. Unless you're skilled in appliance repair, checking and repairing these components will require the help of a service technician

Hope this was helpful. Good Luck.

NO COLD AIR BLOWING TO REFRIGERATOR


The fan in the freezer blows its air through the COILS in the freezer. If the coils are plugged with frost, there will be no breeze coming into the fresh food compartment. One other thing i have seen on Amana and Sears, is that the fan slips on the motor shaft. Make sure the fan blade is tight on the shaft.
