Amana refrigerator SQD23VW

If the freezer is not freezing. I am guessing that the refrigerator is not cold also. Here is link to an Amana Refrigerator Not Freezing. You will need to narrow down parts that are working and are not working. I would first pull the refrigerator out to make sure that the compressor and the condenser fan are running(the condencer fan motor runs to cool the compressor down). This is a link to a GE refrigerator condenser fan motor problem. The compressor and condenser fan motor are in the same place. This can give an idea at least where it is at. Make sure that the evaporator fan motor in the freezer is running also. Make sure that the rear freezer wall is not iced over. This can be a defrost problem. See what a defrost problem is HERE. If your unit is sitting there with the lights on but you hear no noise from any fan motor or your compressor. Your unit may be in a defrost mode. Locate your defrost timer. It looks as tho it is either located in the front behind the kick plate or in the back by the compressor. Here is a link to your units diagrams or . Hope this helps a little. This is my Appliance repair Contact. You can get a hold of me at anytime.

My Amana bottom freezer model # BB20VSE, serial # 0006289684, mfg # P1321301WS has become increasingly noisy when the compressor(?) turns on. This started over a year ago and now is extremely loud. Thank...

Ah this is an indication that your condenser has become dirty, or blocked, or the fan motor is not working or the air flow is restricted.
The noise is generated when the compressor cycles off and sudders to a stop

Noisy refrigerator

hi doug,
with the amana of that age there are several weird noises, be glad you have only one. that aside
ill tell you all of em...
a clear pop..... usually after defrost its the compressor starting cold as they say.
a knock ( very much like you should answer the door) is the plastic liner popping back into place in the freezer, after defrost.
Then ther is the knock of the water solonoid, but that would be more than once a day.
you might be able to remedy these, by changing the box postion a bit,,, i know sound stupid but i was the old lonely for 15 years and this one was always tough to diagnos it never happened whiles the service guy is there.... so i bought one....

Amana model SXD25QA3W. Not cooling. Compressor runs.

Low on refrigerant which is R 12. EPA has stopped the manufacture of it and it is priced out of sight.
You have a leak and will need it fixed. Compressor is about $300-400 list. You don't want to go there.
Good luck but likely 15-17 years old....... New one ???
