If you are talking about the evaporator coil inside the freezer then the system is low on freon or there is a problem with the compressor pumping the freon. Either way a qualified tech is required to recover the freon, detect the leak and recharge the system.

Hot spots on outside of Amana fridge. sxd22s2w model


if it feels like it's running hot check the coil to see if it needs to be cleaned,remove the bottom kick plate and look at the coil,the coil should be cleaned once every 6 to 12 months,also pull the fridge out,remove the back bottom panel,make sure the condenser fan is blowing and vac out any lint near the fan and compressor,also check the cover that you removed and clean that too.you might want to unplug the fridge while you clean back there so you don't hit the fan blade,wait 5 minutes before you plug it back in so the compressor can reset itself.there are gas lines that run through the frame of the machine,if the coil is jammed with dust and lint the machine runs hotter,this is how it cools off through the condenser coil and the fan blows the air around to help cool it down,if it runs hot then the freon will run hot and you could feel it on the frame and in the strip where the doors close together.you can buy a brush that you can push into the holes of the coil to pull the dust out or if you have a shop vac you can vac out as much as you can and then put it on blow and blow the dust out of the coil,just hit it with short bursts or the dust will blow everywhere.

Our Fujitsu inverter although on 18 degrees and "Cooling" on high is not cooling at all. Just feels like a fan on high


First advise not to keep in 18 degree temp.(Please ask me why in separate question)
You will get better cooling in 23 degree itself. There are many reasons for not getting cold.
1. Dirty filter and coil. Clean it. 2. Check compressor is working. 3.If working, check for gas pressure. 4. If gas pressure is good, check out door fan motor working well. 5. And also clean your condenser coil.

2000 Amana BX21Vl fridge: ice maker and freezer not working.


5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked. if the freezer has air and the rear freezer wall has frost on it, the evaporator coils are iced up and need defrosting. causes: 1. low refrigerant 2. no fan 3. too much humid air in fridge/freezer due to door open or bad door seals 4. the condensate drain tube is clogged if the seal around the door is ripped or not completely sealing, or there is condensation at the bottom or the walls of the fridge, replace the seal(s). no air, no fan. Replace if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional. defrost solutions: unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of. after the freezer freezes again, your ice maker will work again.

I have an Amana bottom freezer fridge model ARB2517CSR the freezer stopped working I cleaned the coils and the fan was working and the fridge was making a buzzing sound. The sound stopped, so did the...


If the coils were really dirty, the compressor is probably just overheated. Let it cool down overnight then try again. If it still won't stay running it needs serviced. Could be the start relay or internal overload/overheat sensor in the compressor. If the coils were really dirty and it was used like this for a long time, the compressor could be damaged. It is almost never worth replacing a compressor in a home refrigerator.

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.
