Question about Refrigerators

Is the condenser fan supposed to run continually? My Amana top freezer isn't cooling right and if I nudge the fan it will start spinning. Is there a control switch for the motor?

To answer your first question no it is not suppose to run all the time. There is a relay that control the motor that is bad and you will need to replace it. The reason you can bump it and it works is because you are shacking loose the items inside the relay

Our Top Freezer Refrigerator, Amana, doesn't seem to be cooling sufficiently. Particularly the freezer. It's about 10 years old. I've vacuumed the condenser and grille at the back.

Refrigerator not cooling...makes hissing noise


From your problem description I would say it sounds like maybe the condenser fan is not running. If that fan does not run, the compressor will overheat, and get very unhappy, LOUDLY. There is a fiberboard cover on the back of the unit, unplug the unit, remove the cover and inspect the fan, it should turn freely if you nudge it with your finger. If it does not turn freely, you will need to make it so by lube, removing foreign object (dead mouse once for me) dust dragons etc... or replace the fan if necessary.

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan won't kick on


be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

Condenser fan torque question (F'aire side-by-side)


It should not need help getting started and will hurt a little to stop with one finger also it will cause the sides of the frig to get warm maybe even hot around the door try puting a small fan behind the frig with the back panel off till you can replace the fan that will help you know if that is causeing your cooling problem
