Things to check first...

Is the condenser fan running? It is located in the back, behind the panel at the bottom. It should be running all the time, to cool off the condenser coil

Is the compressor running? It is also behind the panel in the back. It has an overload safety attached to the side, which could be broken. If it sounds like something is broken and rattling around inside (it can be pulled off, but might be heldon with a wire) then you might try replacing it.

Freezer works fridge does not


Needs to be completely thawed for 2 days. Or wlse the circulator fan under the freezer panel inside freezer is not working. Take the plastic bottom of freezer out and let thaw. Then plug in fridge and check if the fan is running inside there. Do not poke around inside there or fridge will be punctured and ruined.

Amana SRD520T - appliance tripped the circuit breaker. After power had been restored the compressor ran but no cooling in freezer or fridge


With the compressor running, open the freezer and listen if the fan is running. If it is not, replace it. Most likely, this is your problem.

If it is running, turn off the refrigerator. Remove the rear panel from the freezer. Inspect the coils. If they are covered in ice, let them thaw completely. This ice will prevent the freezer and consequently, the refrigerator from getting cold.

If the fan works and the freezer coils are not cold, then I am afraid it is time for another refrigerator.

Our freezer is not making Ice and the refrigerator is not cold


have oiyu ried to thaw it out then plus it back in? also is there anything that could be blocking the air at all? The easiest way to thaw a freezer is to take a shop vac and turn the air around and blow it on the coils to thaw out the ice. go ahead and make sure t=hat its cpompletely thawed out them turn back on and check the air flow afrom the fan after its ran a little bit. Don't rae until your problem has been resolved then rate the best solutions please. Thanks for using FixYa.

Refr/freezer alternately gets too cold and thaws


My first thought: defrost timer which shuts off the compressor and turns on a heater in the freezer is sluggish.  I'd change it out.

If your light inside does not light when you open the door you problem could be power related. Your description sounds as a power supply problem. Try moving the power cord to another outlet.
