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

. 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.

How do you add a switch to disable the thaw cycle from an Amana top freezer fridge.I need to do so i can use solar power on my fridge.the thaw unit uses to much energy so when i am boondocking i can switch...


while i do not reccomend doing this since more energy is used in running the components to make is cool (compressor,compressor fan & freezer fan) all 3 must run to keep it cool while the defrost comes on for 25 minutes about once every 4 days as compered to the cooling components running a average of 24 hrs during the same time span as compared to 25 minutes is to disconnect teh wires from the defrost heater behind the freezer back wall

ps if you read this and give me a bad rating i do not care

Remove the bottom front panel of the fridge and locate the defrost timer. This is a small circular motor with a screw slot in the center. Turn the slot CLOCKWISE ONLY and listen for a click. As soon as you hear the click stop, wait about five minutes and feel the walls of the freezer they should now be cold.If this happens again the timer will need to be replaced. Thank you, Dana

Freezer is thawing - water dripping -


Hi, if the clicking noise is coming from the back, it is the relay on the compressor. It os possible that the compressor is bad but, most common it is the relay.
Is this under 5 years old? (warranty)
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Whirlpool Top-Mount Refrigerator Freezer warm, cracking noise


8yr old? Buy a new one. The cracking sound is from expansion and contraction of the cabinet and ice cooling or defrosting. It can be as simple as a bit of a top up of refrigerant, but can also be that your compressor has worn down the valve plates and therefore is not producing sufficient pressure throught the system.

INTERMINENT BUZZING NOT COOLING


from your description it sounds as if the compressor is not starting up. the buzzing noise usually occurs approx. ever 3-5 minutes and is followed by a click. this indicates either a bad start relay or a stuck compressor. and from the model you listed it is most likely the compressor. if the unit is under 5 yrs old it should still be in warranty thru sears.

Refrigerator/freezer is warm, fan is running.


The problem is the compressor isnt starting. The relay is probably ok. It should have 5yr warranty on the compressor. However if you purchase a Supco RC0810 start assist relay available at all appliance parts stores, it will start the compressor, however this is only a temp fix. But it should last till sears can put a new compressor in.
