Question about Amana 25" Cu Ft French Doors Bottom Freezer Refrigerator, AFD2535DE
Refrigerator is fairly new ... 5 - 6 yrs old ... it is in a home that was unoccupied/vacant for 3 years, but heated in winter. I recently bought the house and turned on the refrigerator and freezer (controls had been set at "- -". Freezer cools properly ... ice maker works fine ... all lights are on/OK, but no cooling in upper refrigerator. I tried unplugging the refrigerator then plugging it back in. No luck ... still no cooling up top.

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.

disreguard all the other fixyas,first if you still have ice buildup get your hair dryer and heat it up and melt it,then remove the front off the icemaker,you have a cube size dial,turn it down and it will reduce the amount of water that goes into the icemaker,if that does no work go on ebay and pickup a univeral icemaker for around $50,hope this helped you-mike

First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
