Question about Amana Refrigerators

Open Question

Amana bb20v1ps Compressor and both fans are running on my bottom freezer amana. Fridge is warm, and air flow is weak from the damper. When I open the freezer door air flow increases in the refrigerator. I already opened up the back of the freezer, and removed two large blocks of ice on either side of the evaporator coil do you think I have a bad damper

It sounds as though you have a refigeration problem if there is no cold on the coil, however you hav sad that you have changed the sensor which would bring in the fan when cold enough. As far as airflow I have been doing this a while on American cabinets and never really consider airflow as a primary failure. If the fan is running and the vents are clear that is normally enough, these fans are not high powered and the cabinets have a large volume. What you could try is leaving the door open whilst observing the coil and see if it frosts right through the coil without the fan running. If it does then it should pull down to temp. Hope this helps, unfortunately without seeing things its hard to give a definitive answer.

Not sure of the description of the fault. If you are saying that the internal fan will not run but that you have put a power supply to it and it has run, it could be a number of possibilities... You described moving the cabinet. It is highly possible that a pipe or part of the refrigeration system has been damaged in the move and caused a loss of gas. If you remove the back panel to expose the evaporator (cold coil), and turn the system on, after 5 to 10 mins you should see a frost build up over the whole of the coil. If you dont then you probably have a leak. Result call a fridge guy. Leaks can vary in cost and is entirely dependent on where the leak is located and how long it takes to find it. If it does freeze the whole coil then you may well have a problem with the defrost heater or defrost thermostat. Both of which need to be intact in order to provide a neutral supply to the fan motor. You can (IF COMPETENT) check that you have resistance across both of these elements. If you have an open circuit on either then that is your problem. (PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE DEFROST THERMOSTAT HAS TO BE BELOW 0'C IN ORDER TO HAVE ZERO RESISTANCE ACROSS IT...I.E. COIL COLD). Hope this is of some help.

Check the damper in the top back of the fresh food section. make sure that it is open and air is coming through it.

You will be able to hear it when you open the freezer door and hold the door switch in.It is located behind the rear panel inside the freezer. The fan should be running when the compressor is running. If it is running make sure the damper(vent) to the fridge side is not blocked by ice and that the damper door is open.

SOURCE: compressor working but Fridge and Freezer not cooling - Amana

It sounds like the same problem my brother is having with his. I took it apart and found that the fan that moves all the air for cooling is not working. This fan is behind the bottom panel in the freezer side, and sorry you do have to take everything out to get to it.

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

My freezer works but my refrigerator wont stay cold...getting warm. it is 4 years old. what could be wrong?


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Freezer is cold, refrigerator is warm. sounds


check the fan from the freezer side if its not running /possible frozen or jammed will cause the refridge side to be warm the fan blows the freezer air into the fridge side to cool their is also a damper or duct control which can build up if no blockage or debris test fan for power if power than test fan it self if not running than repair or replace as necessary

Amana bz22rw fridge temp fluctuates & is a little warm - freezer is ok should i replace the fridge temp control or the damper


Temp control = controls run time of the compressor and temp of freezer.
damper and cold control = control how cool the fridge is...
also check you fan speed and air flow to the fridge.

Refrigerator compartment not cooling


If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.
