Question about Refrigerators
Mybe it's the thermostat and not the compressor. try setting the fridge temp lower than normal and see if it works (normal: 37 F for fridge, 0 F for freezer)
Check the voltage in your house. A lower or higher than normal voltage (110-115 V if you live in USA) may damage the compressor or other parts of a fridge.
Also, check that there is enough room on the sides and back of the fridge, at least 3 inches on each side, top and back. Check if the floor underneath the fridge is dirty with lint or hair (move the fridge 3-4 ft to the front and clean the floor under the fridge). This is needed to allow for heat dissipation.

Most of the time when a compressor is replaced they also to replace the line dryerrs and the filters as well as thoroughly clean the lines to remove all the impurities that have been left behind by the damaged compressor being replaced.
If you dont have a complete cleanout and refit of all associated filters and dryers you are going to have short lived compressors!
I would suggest either getting another unit either by writing Amana and getting a prorata on your current fridge or just buying a new on outright.
The cost of repair on your own might be better spent on a new unit.
I hope this helps!
