Question about Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water
Evap fan not running and changed to a new one and still not running
On some Amana models the evap fan motor runs thru the defrost thermostat. The purpose was to delay the fan restarting after a defrost cycle so it wouldn't blow warm air. If you can jump the defrost thermostat and the an runs, then changing the thermostat will solve your problem.
Other causes on Amana could be on older models the fan was run thru the fan/light switch. If it's a rocker type switch, it could be the problem.
Call the supply house where you bought the motor. Ask if the light switches are 2 or 4 terminal. Both the freezer and fresh food switches. If they are 4 terminal, then they could be the problem, or they are not depressing far enough when the door closes.
Lastly, I have come across a few Amana's where they actually had a broken wire to the motor. In all my cases it was the white wire. The area where they broke, was not at the motor but further back in the harness. You would need a VOM meter to trace the wiring.
