Amana Bottom Freezer Refrigerator model # DRB 1901 CW Not cooling

We have an Amana Bottom Freezer Refrigerator model # DRB 1901 CW. It is not cooling again this year. Last year we called a repair man and he found a faulty Limitor and replaced it (that is how he spelled the part on the paper work). Is there another name for this part and can a owner buy and repair it themselves? Also where is this located on the refrigerator? It would be nice if we could repair it ourselves for last year the repair man charged $227. Thanks for any help you can provide.

SOURCE: 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.

Check the damper in the top back of the fresh food section. make sure that it is open and air is coming through it.

SOURCE: Amana refrigerator only not working

Have same problem with my basic whirlpool refridgerator 2 months old.  Warranty guy came out.  He said the vents between the freezer/fridge air are clogged with ice.  this happens if the door is left open for awhile which allows water to condensate, then closed, water freezes.
Said to left fridge defrost completely for 24 hours to let ice melt thn plug back in.  I'll update if this does not work.
