What you have is a compressor not starting. It is kicking off on the overload protector. This is caused by a failed relay or the compressor being locked up. Amana does have some models under a recall for that relay. Call (866) 533-9817 to verify. If it is a locked up compressor there may be a 5yr warranty on it. You can call Amana directly to verify that too.

Mine had the same problem, and I had a tech out today who determined it's the motor inside the freezer. It's (the fan) not running. It's a $100 part, but if your refrigerator is new enough, it's probably worth the investment to go ahead and have it fixed.

Amana. Buzzing and humming. Does not stay cold. Ten hrs old Amana ARB 2217CS


It sounds like some packing material was left in the unit. You will need to look in your manual and look for set up instructions, since you probably have some packing material left on.

I moved into a house a week ago and have noticed that the bottom freezer Amana refrigerator makes a grinding, humming, clicking noise constantly. I seems to be getting worse each day


Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Bad capacitor/relay or compressor?


that is most likely a relay. Does the unit get cold while running?

Freezer makes a humming noise and is not freezing


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Freezer is in garage and has worked up until now. Still runs, makes a humming sound and is cold but not freezing. Food is thawing.

If it is below freezing in your garage the freezer will not work.
No freezer except one Frigidaire freezer will work in the extreme cold.
This one has a button to switch it to a refrigerator in the winter and a freezer in the summer.

Amana Bottom Freezer door when shut starts a noise


The light is switched on and off by a small lever which is pushed when closing or opening the door. This operates a microswitch. It would not make any grinding noise. Grinding noise can come from the fanmotor which would also stop when the fridge door is open.
