Good day,
Once all the original start components were removed from the compressor, there should be two wires That run back into the compartment that are your power source.
Those 2 wires go to the two black wires that are shown on the 3 and 1. Doesn't matter on those two which goes where.

You should have 3 wires left that are grouped together.
1.White goes to the bottom left.
2. Red goes to the bottom right
3. Black goes to the center top.

Can I use a 25' extension cord for my Amana refrigerator

The 12/3 cord you mention is 12-gauge, that should be OK. The thing to avoid is power loss over distance which will make the motor work harder -- there are appliance cords which uses a stranded wire that reduce voltage loss due to induction.

My bottom freezer amana refrigerator is making a clicking noise. And my freezer is barely cold.

Refrigerator making clicking noise compressor not running.

The clicking could be the start relay.If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower cover from your refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor,you will see wires going to this. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it's bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it's bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it's ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it does not cost much. A quick check on the compressor is to remove the start relay. You will see 3 pins connect a multi meter set for continuity. You should have continuity between any of the 3 pins. If you do not the compressor is bad. Also check from each pin to a good ground on the cabinet. There should be no continuity if there is the compressor is bad. If you replace it and it doesn't work then the compressor is bad and you'll need to call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing).You can enter your model # at Refrigerator clicking for diagrams and illustrations or to purchase a start relay. A 3 in 1 start relay will also work fine.

My evaporator fan is not working even though I have power to the fan from the harness. The fan works when tested running power straight to it on the bench, and the leads have continuity to the fan motor,...

Good day,
One possibility is the door has a fan switch on it, and would not run if the door was open, or the switch was bad. Some models had a switch in the freezer on the top or side of the housing where the door mates to it.
As well some had 2 fan switches. The one described as well as an other one in the food compartment as well.
In either door, the switch may be a combination switch with 4 wires connected to it. 2 for the light, 2 for the fan.

In addition, many Amana's had the power to the fan routed thru the defrost thermostat. It's a round disk clipped to the top of the coil with 2 wires coming out of it. It's about 1" in diameter.
The purpose of wiring it that way, was so the fan wouldn't start running after a defrost cycle until the coil reached 20 degrees or colder.

Wiring connection

Depending on the model you have, you should see if it disconects from the ice maker itself. or follow the the wire from the ice maker to the plug.

Amana side by side SB 520S fridge trips ground

the unit has a higher heat load than normal after being off for a time. the compressor draws alot of amps and could easily trip a ground fault cb. The breaker should have a ground wire hooked into the back of the breaker that is connected to the nuetral or ground bar. this wire should be at least 12 guage wire if it is on a 15amp breaker

Intermittent Amana side by side

Although,I think this is the condensor fan or condersor clog
here is more info on the part in question.

On the compressor,under the cap where the wires are connected,you should see a small disk (about the size of a quarter)wired in between the the power post,It should have 1 wire to a compressor post and one to a power in wire.

It is called a thermal snap disk

Please rate this a fixya
