    can you open the freezer section and see frost building through the lower panel?? if so sounds like a derfost issue. if hteres no frost try removing the panel is there any frost behind there?? does refrig appear to be running at all?? ice maker stopping is normal for a no cooling issue.let me know what you find

You can visit the local applaince dealer. frost on onle the top few coils is an indcation of a low charge, restriction of freon, or inneffceint compressor, after 10 years wouldnt image that would be a worth while repair, way expensive here where i am lookna t 500 or so.

Where do I locate the defrost heater 12049801 in an amana ARSE66MB side by side refrigerator?

Good day,
The main heater is a double loop calrod unit mounted to the bottom of the cooling coil located behind the rear panel in the freezer panel.
You can access it by removing the rear panel and if necessary melting any ice or frost built up.
It should be noted it fails rarly, so you should check it with an ohm meter before replacing it.
Here's a picture.

I have an Amana side by side model ARS2664BW. The unit is about 8 years old. The water dispenser on the freezer door quit working and the cooling units inside the freezer and frig are not working proper....

I did a search on's knowledge base and didn't find anything useful regarding your two top cooling units not working.
At, I tried to download the manual, but the service was unavailable until 8/9/2010 after 8:00AM due to system upgrades.

The above is a service locator for your refrigerator. Since their site doesn't seem to have a solution for this, I would call in the pros if you want to have it fixed more quickly than trying to do it yourself.

Amana model SXD25QA3W. Not cooling. Compressor runs.

Low on refrigerant which is R 12. EPA has stopped the manufacture of it and it is priced out of sight.
You have a leak and will need it fixed. Compressor is about $300-400 list. You don't want to go there.
Good luck but likely 15-17 years old....... New one ???

Amana Double Door refrigerator not freezing in the freezer side.

sounds like a leak ,as long as the compressor fan is running it is a leak. it can be fixed by a technician only due to the tools needed for the repair. these tools cost well over 1000usd and may not be worth purchasing for a single repair.

Amana afd2535deb Frig- freezer works fine but frig doesn't cool

If the compressor didn't come on the freezer wouldn't work at all. The problem is in the inside fan on the fridge side.
