A amana French door fridge no fan water or.icemaker lights come on but no fan turning on or cold


Many Amana model fridges have the freezer fan wired through the bi-metal thermostat that is clipped to the evaporator. Either your compressor has a bad start device and that is why it is not cooling, or the compressor IS running and the unit has lost its refrigerant charge. Running compressor with no cooling = buy a new fridge.
Compressor hot, but not running = start relay replacement to get the compressor going. Start Device 8201786

How do I install compressor for amana refrigerator. Can a home handy man install a compressor? Do I need freon?


Hi.The compressor motor is connected to the refrigerant system, which is not user serviceable. It will be necessary to have the compressor serviced, or replaced by a qualified technician. During this process, the pressurized system will need to be re pressurized. This will require special tools, and regulative equipment, as well. This can be very dangerous, and that is why I prefer to give proper advise on this type of repair. Kindly, contact your nearest service tech.

Refrigerator/freezer is not getting cold


If you are lucky, this could just need a new thermostat fitting.
If not, it could either be a faulty compressor, or a refridgerant gas leak!!!

The thermostat is not expensive, but the compressor is...VERY!
If your fridge/freezer is out of guarantee, I would replace the thermostat first. (These can be bought On-line from many sites, or try your local Depot), which of course will cost you more, but they will order the correct part if you supply them with the manufacturer & model number.
These details are usually found inside the fridge, either on one side of the lower panel behind the salad box or sometimes, on older models, may be on the rear of the fridge.

Amana bottom frezzer refrigerator


Gazzo, You are on the right track. I've been finding a lot of compressor failures on these Amana's. It's possible that the overload and relay for the compressor failed, but Im more inclined, from what I've seen, that the compressor is the problem. The compressor is covered under warranty, parts and labor for 5 years. I would call for warranty service...Catriver...post back.

I cannot get to the drip pan under refridgerator to empty it. It is filled with sludge and smells bad


Thank willie for helping with one: "Well, it looks like the pan is a seperate plastic pan and not the compressor mounting pan like some of the newer ones are. It appears that you have to remove the condensor fan motor and mounting bracket then maybe the pan will left up and over the compressor, or maybe there is enough room to lift the pan up and out the front over the condensor coils"
