Question about Amana Refrigerators
Good chance the compressor was damaged. First however, you can check the compressor starting components.
These components are clipped to the side of the compressor and are held on with a retainer clip.
First, unplug the machine, remove the retainer clip and pull the components off of the compressor.
The components are made up of the thermal overload protector, start relay and on most models a start run capacitor.
Take them to an appliance parts house. Most are more then willing to test them for you.
Take the complete model number with you.
If any test bad, replace. If they test O.K. then you will need the services of a qualified service tech to test the compressor.
If the parts test O.K. and the machine is under 5 years old, then call your dealer for a warranty service call, since the outage may or may not have been the cause of the problem. If it is a bad compressor, and no sign of storm damage is apparent, the warranty dealer would replace the compressor free of charge.
