Amana French Door fridge not cooling

I also have an Amana french Door fridge with the same problem.(no cooling in fridge-frost in freezer) The service repairman already replaced the jazz board once. This is the third time I've had this fridge repaired for the same problem in less than 2 years. I think part of my problem is the repairman not knowing how to diagnose it. He wants me to spend another $150-200 for another jazz board.(1st repair) He is telling me they've upgraded them in the last couple years 3 maybe 4 times and they are working better now.(can anyone verify this?) The second time he diagnosed it as a bad fan. We replaced that and the fridge quit working again in 2 months. Each time I unplugged it and allowed it to defrost, and when I plugged it back in it worked fine. Temporarily, anyway. My first question is: Is there a diagnosis code for the jazz board to determine anything other than forced defrost function? If so, what else can be diagnosed? Second, the fridge has an icemaker and water dispenser that i have not hooked up yet. Could this in any way be affecting the unit to malfunction?
thanks, Dee

You have a problem here
you need to get the secondary defrost kit installed
it is not the jazz board
unless he is not programming it right aftwer install
but check your back wall for frost
if you have frost you have an airflow issue
whats happening is the door is being left ajar even a 1/16 gap is an issue
when hot air enters the unit fromn the gap it condenses on the diverter behind the freezer wall
after a few weeks it builds up enought o cause problems
there is a kit you can get that will divert electrical heat to the diverter and keep it warm enough to defrost it there by never having the issue again

These fridges go through all sorts of cycles, the defrost cycle is probably the noisiest, strange sounds are ok, it will tell you when something serious is wrong, alerts & alarms.

IN MOST CASES THERE IS A FAN THAT SENDS COLD AIR FROM THE FREEZER TO KEEP THE FRIDGE COLD. EITHER YOUR FAN MOTOR HAS GONE BAD OR YOUR THERMOSTAT IN YOUR FRIDGE IS BAD.

Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Refrigerator compartment not cooling


If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.

Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works


There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.
