Question about Refrigerators
I have an amana bottom freezer. ABB1922 feq i saw somewhere ... I think that this fridge does not have a defrost timer. Is this correct. fairly new 2-3 yrs old. the damper is open and the freezer is cold. no air seems to be coming out in the refrigerator. And I have defrosted it and appears to wor fine for a couple weeks.. And then nothing... suggestions?

SOURCE: fridge doesn't get cold enough
you have either a Defrost heater / a defrost timer/ or a defrost bi-metal that is bad. if you post your model # i can look it up and show you how to set it into defrost to see if the heaters are ok
Since you replaced the timer already that leaves two things you need to check set it into defrost if you know how and remove the panel in the back wall of the freezer you should see the heater(s) are on if not check pwr 120vac at the heaters if 0 volts the bi-metal is bad

Totally Unreasonable if you don't mind me saying so. The person who told you that story was thinking of an absorption unit more than likely.
Your proble is related to the defrost system of your refrigerator. There is a timer that automatically starts the defrost. It energizes the heaters that defrost the cooling coil. After the coil reaches a preset temperature a defrost terminator turns the heater off for the remaining time on the timer cycle. You could have a bad timer (stalled) which would not start the defrost. Locate the timer and turn the clutch head screw clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. The defrost should take place and will be indicated by water in the drain pan under the refrigerator. If after 25 minutes it does not restart in the cooling mode turn the screw once again to the second click and replace the timer.
If the refrigerator restarts after 18-22 minutes and defrost does not take place your problem is in the heater circuit. Open heater or thermostat (termination switch)

there are 3 components in the defrost system that can go bad. timer, defrost thermostat, and defrost heater. since youve already replaced timer that means youve eliminated it as a bad component. the most common defrost system failure is actually the defrost thermostat. moisture will infiltrat into the control and ause it to short out. the way to check it is:

Unplug your refrigerator and open the rear panel in the back of freezer. Disconnect one whire on one end of the defrost heater. Tape the wire up and you'll be good to go no defrost. Sea Breeze
