Refrig won't cool below 54 degrees

Hi, I have an Amana Bottom Freezer Refrigerator PARB2117BW1. The freezer works fine, but the refrigerator will not cool below 54 degrees F. I've cleaned the vents under and behind the refrigerator. There is not ice build up in the freezer, (although there has been in the past when the refrig is warm, but after cleaning out the refrig, usually a day later, it works fine - not this time!) With the refrig door open and the fan blowing, you can't feel any flow coming out of the refrig vent, unless you crack the freezer seal a little. If I prop open one corner of the freezer seal, then I can feel the air flow coming through the refrig vent. Any suggestions to get the frig cooler? I have played with the temperature controls as well, and even with the refrig set on the coldest setting, it still only cools to 54 degrees.

SOURCE: 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.

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 warm

Chances are if they are getting cool but not cold-

1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running
2) Defrost heater has failed
3) Defrost sensor has failed
4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.

Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator.
Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above.

SOURCE: refrig/freezer just quite working?

The defrost timer is located in the control panel in the fresh food section.
Look up under the panel and see a opening slightly smaller than a dime.
Put the blade of a butter knife in there and turn clockwise a quarter turn.
If the fridge starts working, replace the defrost timer.

Amana bottom freezer refrig runs at maximum coolness


Thanks for your inquiry. I think I may have fixed it. I unpluged it and took everything out of the refrigerator and freezer, cleaned it thoroughly inside and out and unscrewed the back wall inside the freezer. There was a huge ice buildup on the coils so I let it sit for 12 hours like a defrost. I turned it back on and it seems to be working fine. It is not running constantly and is maintaining about 5 degrees below. If this doesn't stay working, I guess I have to call a repairman.
