You have a defrost problem. 3 parts: Timer (or "adaptive defrost control"), defrost heater and def. termination thermostat.Find the timer, it shoud be nehind the bottom front grille to the right on Amana (if you see a blck box under there with a sticker on it, it's the ADC model) turn the timer CW until it clicks. Take the back off the bottom of the freezer and listen. After 5-10 minutes if you hear the sound of the sound of water hitting a hot grill. If you hear this the heater and thermo are working and the problem is the timer/ADC. No hiss? Unplug fridge. Check thermo and heater for continuity. Replace the one that's open. If the heater's open, replace the thermo too: Maybe it didn't open soon emouhg and caused heater failure.

Check low voltage or your control voltage. If your transformer is bad this will cause the unit not to work.

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan stops spinning after 15 mins


Capacitor, dirty condencer coil causing the motor amps to run too high. But most likely worn bearing on blade side of motor causing it to pull to one side causing it to over heat and shut down. Sleve bearings should have no side play.

Freezer and fridge not cooling properly


Clean it up. Check under it and behind, clean ,vacume and or blow out all dust and check the fins on the bottom, a soft brush and portable air compressor work really well but very dusty, take out side if possible, or just vacume really well.

GE Refrigerator does not cool anymore


my amana SXS was not cooling properly. I took off the cover inside the back of the freezer to see if the defroster was working. it was so I timed the cycle. It was about 50 minutes. I decided that it was staying on defrost too long and too often. I replaced the defrost timer and the thermostat(since I bought both for about 40 bucks.) Previously, I had cleaned the coils underneath with a special 'refrigerator coil brush' from Home Depot. ($4) But that alone didn't fix it . works like new now with new parts.

Amana Refer. runs all the time.


Have you ever cleaned the condenser coil in the back or under the bottom of the refrigerator. Dirty coil will cause this problem, also make sure the little fan motor in the back is working if it stops you can get the same condition. If not these two conditions you may be starting to have a refrigerant problem.
The unit gets low on refrigerant and just dosen't cool properly.

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works


Do you know if the compressor in the back is running? If you can check that out get back to me and we can go from there. Most times if the fan in the freezer is running the defrost timer is ok.
