SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

Sounds like it has either a bad compressor relay or if the brand name of the compressor is Tecumseh, it will need to be retrofit to a more reliable longer lasting Embraco compressor.

SOURCE: Amana AFD2535DEW freezer/refrigerator with intermittent tempurature swings

I had the same issue. It was the relay overload which essentially provides the extra boost to get the compressor going. The switch tries for about 10 seconds before giving up and then retries 3 - 4 minutes later. In the early stages of failure, eventually it will work and the compressor will kick on. But eventually the switch will fail and will just cycle through the 10 second attempt every 3 to 4 minutes. The part is about $35 - part number 67005560.

'04 Kenmore side by side, refrigerator part maintains 60 degrees.


HI, GIve it 24 hours before you panic. If the fans are running and the compressor is running, you should be ok. Make sure the fan underneath is running. Sometimes when moved, something will get caught and stop the blade.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Our Amana frig temperature is approximately 60 degrees with the lower freezer under 32 degrees. The unit is running constant. Any repair solutions would be appreciated.


Check and see if the fan is running in the freezer. If not may be bad or frozen. If is running check and see if there is any frost in the freezer if the fan is in the back then check the back wall of the freezer. If yes the it is not defrosting . Thaw it out for 24 hours and it will work for a week or so but it will need either a defrost timer, heater or thermostat.

I noticed a "clicking" sound every couple minutes when I awoke this morning. 4 hours later everything in the freezer is thawed and the refrigerator is up to 50 degrees. Any ideas on what to do?


It sounds like the clicking sound is the compressor trying to start. The clicking is the starter relay kicking in. The relay is under the plastic cap on the compressor under the fridge. The compressor is rounded on top flat on the bottom with the plastic cap on top of it and its black. If you take the cap off the starter relay is connected to one of the 3 prongs on the compressor replace it if this doesnt fix the problem your compressor is locked up and sorry but this means time for a new fridge. good luck I hate to give bad news..

Ice Maker quit, everything started to thaw out.


Good day,
Limited information. The ice maker will go into auto lockout if the freezer goes above 14 degrees.
Motors make noise.
There is a fan motor behind the back wall, of the freezer compartment. If the machine is turned on, it should run, and you should be able to hear it.
If not, remove the rear panel and inspect.
The second fan motor, is located in the back rear of the machine, behind the rear cover, it should be running as well.
If both are running O.K. then it is in the compressor itself.
A pricey problem, if it's the compressor. Should be checked by a qualified tech.

P.S. If you feel it is a compressor problem, and the unit is less than 5 years of age, then contact your selling dealer. It would be under warranty.

Thank you for using FixYa

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C


you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

Fridge condensation - freezer thawing


OK now I'm wondering are theses numbers your getting 4 -9 the actual temps of the refrigerator and the freezer? and do they feel this cold and correct to you? I know the refrigerator side shouldn't be below 34 or so and definitely not below 32. If this is correct and the numbers are not settings but temps. (Now if you have a touch pad its electronic. If it has knobs it has a separate defrost and thermostat and are electro-mechanical)
If electronic Your control board and possibly defrost control are out.
It would more likely be the sensors going to the board(s) It will both sensors have the possibility of causing your problem. 1 will control the run of the compressor (and this one could and probably is connected to the inside coil) and 1 will control the air damper tween the refdg and freezer compartments, and may turn on the inside fan operation too.

(this would be my first suspect if these are degrees numbers). Look at the thermostat control see if it is attached to the indoor coil (usually the tube leavign the indoor section. If its not attached its not sensing the coil temp and when goes into defrost wala its not senmsing temps like its designed to do. Look for a broken clip or possible a plastic wire tie that holds this sensor in place.

Please get back to me with what you see - find on this look up.

My Amana AFD2535DEW freezer problem


Sound like the compressor is having trouble starting. You can purchase a RCO810 to assist the compressor's start winding. If the unit is under 5yrs there should be some warranty (no electrical parts) left in the compressor. It will need to be replaced.
