Amana ABB222DE is the overload/capacitor the same thing as the compressor relay? I just had the compressor relay replaced in amana bottom mount. Frig cools fine but every 2 days or so buzzing noise...


I have been doing refrigeration for over 30 years and I have never seen a compressor with a chip inside of it. Have you tried cleaning the condensor coils? I almost sounds like you have a weak start capacitor. Let me know if i can help you any futher.

My bottom freezer amana refrigerator is making a clicking noise. And my freezer is barely cold.


Refrigerator making clicking noise compressor not running.

The clicking could be the start relay.If the start relay is bad, the compressor will not start and you will hear a clicking noise in 2-5 minute intervals. The clicking noise is the overload cutting the compressor off when it overheats from trying to start with a bad start relay. To find out if this is bad first unplug the refrigerator. Remove the lower cover from your refrigerator. Then take the cover off that is on the side of the compressor,you will see wires going to this. Now you should be able to see the start relay plugged on to the side of the compressor and unplug it. Now the best way to tell if it's bad is to shake it. If it rattles, it's bad and needs to be replaced. If not, most of the time it's ok. But rather than saying the compressors bad, you might want to replace it anyways because it does not cost much. A quick check on the compressor is to remove the start relay. You will see 3 pins connect a multi meter set for continuity. You should have continuity between any of the 3 pins. If you do not the compressor is bad. Also check from each pin to a good ground on the cabinet. There should be no continuity if there is the compressor is bad. If you replace it and it doesn't work then the compressor is bad and you'll need to call a repairman. (Note that compressors are very costly and are normally not worth fixing).You can enter your model # at Refrigerator clicking for diagrams and illustrations or to purchase a start relay. A 3 in 1 start relay will also work fine.

I have a Amana Model ARS2365a, lights come on but compressor does not come on when lights turn off


lights do not have any thing to do with the compressor . but if lights go ( like the power has failed ) then look for loose plug at wall or bad wall rec . light should run independent of compressor . but no lights no compressor . also may be a bad power cord ..

The ice is melting in my Amana arb2205.It clicks,buzzes for a few


sounds like a bad compressor relay. The compressor it self might be bad but 80% chance it is just the relay.

I have an amana air conditioner (ace245e). It


seems like the control board is bad,
if you have experience with electricity you can test the fan & compressor bi-pass the power from the board to the compressor terminal, if the compressor run you know for sure the board is bad

Fridghefreezer not working


Make sur compressor is running.

Unplug for 20-25 min., plug it back in and listen for compressor to start. You will need to be behind the Ref so you can tell if you hear the compressor or the condenser fan running.

Ice/frost build up in freezer.
This is a failure of the defrost system. Evaporator fan, heater, timer, one or more could be bad.

Amana Refrigerator


it sounds like a bad:
  • start switch (on the side of the compressor) or
  • compressor itself
the start switch clicks  off usually when the compressor is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating. if the compressor is not even running then its probably not overheating.
  • so either the compressor is pulling too many amps (bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.

Amana scd23vw side by side problem


You may have a bad evaporator fan.Or it is obstructed.The other thing may be that the evaporator coil is frozen.(Iced up)Which may be caused by a bad defrost switch.
