Good day,
The issue you described sounds typical of a failed automatic defrost system. The components involved include a defrost control, either mechanical or adapative(electronic) in style, which is mounted in the fresh food section behind the main controls.
In addition there is a defrost thermostat and main defrost heater mounted in the the freezer compartment on the top and bottom of the cooling coils respectfully.
One or more of these parts has failed.
Your post seems to indicate you want to have a service company repair the machine, as they should, since it is one of the simplest and most common problems with refrigerators.

Picking a quality service company should be painless and fairly quick in terms of time. Warranty on the sealed system is 5 years but your problem lies elsewhere and is covered by the one year warranty part.

For your information, I have included a link explaining the details with your issue.

My bottom mount french door refrigerator, the upper part does not cold, it's warm


Hi,
Sorry your having trouble so soon!
First thing you need to check is inside the freezer section.
The freezer fan, the fan is W10128551 and should be running
along with the main compressor. Since the freezer is working,
I would check the food on the top drawer or on the freezer door shelf.
They too might be soft..without the fan.
I would You tube 'evaporator fan motor replacement Amana bottom freezer model' Yes I know it say's Whirlpool, but your unit is really
a Amana designed unit. I would give this a difficulty of 3 out 5 wrenches.. Take your time..

The refrigerator portion of my Amana ARB2217CW stopped cooling (the fan is still running), but the freezer drawer portion still works fine. What can


most likely you have a bad damper,go here to see it
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Damper/67003410/1025326
all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air to the fridge section and it goes through the damper,when it gets cold enough in the fridge section the thermostat on the damper closes the damper door,your damper broke in the closed position,this is as long as the door wasn't left open or anything like that,if it was the air ducts could have froze up but most likely it will be the damper.go here and it will show you where it is up near the light in the back and it's part number 18.hope this helps

Fridge not getting cold enough


The cold from the freezer is piped up to the refrigerator and if that tube gets clogged with frost or ice it will not be able to blow to the cold air into the refrigerator area. I took everything out, unpluged the unit for about 6 hours, till all the frost from the freezer was gone, wiped up all moisture and turn it back on. It worked!

Amana energy saver not keeping fridge section cool enough. HELP!


if there is frost build up on rear wall of freezer section the unit is not going through defrost cycle which builds up frost on evaporator and restricts cold air flow to the fresh food section. one of three things are bad. defrost heater, defrost thermostat or defrost timer. if no frost on rear wall you might be low of freon.
