SOURCE: not cooling enough
sometimes you do everything proper and when repair is done another failure occurs because of long run times because not defrstng . the orginal freon charge may have been alittle on the low side and weakened the compressor what you can do is tap the seal system and add 1/2 of the orginal charge listed below the model # should be 134a this will often work for quite some time and remove the panel off the evap in the frzr and observe the frosting on the coils it should be uniform on the evap with no places getting missed if you can not tell temporily move frzr item and unplug to allow frost to thaw then plug back in and open door allow to run 30 min then look at again if only on part of the evap perhaps top or the lower then you know the orginal charge was low then add freon it sound you are very mech person and possible you may need to add the orginal charge to unit (the compressor has taken heat and it has weakened it)

SOURCE: Wide variation in temperature in
Amana refrigerators older than 5 years have both a cold control and freezer control. this may be your problem. But check both the gaskets on the doors and check for heavy dirt on condser coil. Both can cause wild temp problems. Hope this helps

If the dryer is running then the thermal fuse is okay.
The temperature is controlled by three parts. There is the operating thermostat which is on the blower housing and is rated at 150 degrees. This is high heat.
The operating thermostat sits in a thermostat heater which is controlled by the temperature switch. The temperature switch controls how much voltage passes it to the thermostat heater. This is how we achieve lower temperatures. There is about a 15/20 degree difference between high heat and low heat.
The restricted vent may have caused the appearance of the dryer running hot.
I would suggest you check the temperature coming out of the exhaust. It can be checked with the vent hose pulled off. Any thermostat with a range between 120 degrees and 160 can be used. With the vent removed check the temperature of the air in the exhaust. At high temperature it should cycle between 135 degrees to approximately 155 degrees. This is high heat.
If you turn the temperature switch to a lower setting such as delicate you should see a lower temperature in the exhaust. It may only be 15 degrees lower but it should show a lower temperature.
I hope this information helps to resolve this problem.
