    Last night, I pulled out the fridge. Took the covers off from both front and back. I vacuumed all the dust from the back and front reaching as far as possible. Same problem, so I need to tilt the fridge to clean the coils on the bottom? Where can I find the second fan? I saw one on the bottom in the back and it was working. Thanks

Hello,
Your refrigerator not cooling problem is what you can do without the help of a professional. often the fridge has a frost free failure, or the compressor is faulty but there are many other reasons for a fridge not cooling.
The first thing you should do is to make sure the gasket/ seals are not torn and are sealing properly, make sure it is working, but if otherwise, it could be the fan motor. Check for power to motor and also examine the fan swicthes around the door.
Sometime the air damper will notopen upto to allow the cold air fromthe freezer part to blow into their fridge section.
Check to see that condenser coils don't have a dust build up .
Make the compressor is working on and off clicking noises.

The Frost Free failure is the most common cooling problem in the fridges. Expose the evaporator coils by accessing the panel in the freezer section. The coils in the freezer section can sometimes get clogged up with frost. This can stop the evaporator fan motor from blowing cold air around.

When you find the timer, turn the wheel like screws slowly with screwdriver until the fridge stuts off. The refrigerator is now defrosting.If you find that the fridge starts now, you will need to replace the defrost themostat and defrost timer.
Many fridges have an inine fuse on both sides of the defrost heater. You will to replace the whole heater if one of those fuses blows. Check these fuses with a voltmeter. Thanks for using fixya

Hello,

If your refrigerator is not cooling, the problem could be any of the following, follow the steps below one after the other to fix the problem of your refrigerator not cooling.

First of all, the most simplest thing to do is to check the temperature. It might have happened that the temperature control may have been turned off unknowingly, which is the reason for the problem. So if that's the issue, just set the refrigerator at 37 degrees and you are all set.

Poor coiling leads to a heavy frost build up on the evaporator coils. A frost build up, specially on the ceiling of the freezer, is a sign of problem in the self defrosting system or damaged gaskets of the doors. Therefore, check if the refrigerator is facing such a problem and defrost the refrigerator. It would not cool well if the defrosting is not happening properly.

A dirty condenser may be the culprit for your refrigerator not cooling well. What will happen in case if the condenser is dirty is that it will cut off the extra load. That work is done by the thermostat on the side of the compressor in case the refrigerator heats more than usual. To rectify this problem clean the condenser coils using the vacuum cleaner. These are either behind or beneath the refrigerator
In case the refrigerator is not leveled, that too can lead to the refrigerator not cooling properly, because if the level is not right, the door of the refrigerator may not close correctly, causing cooling problems. If this is the case, it might be necessary to ensure that refrigerator is at level and is slightly tilted back. Do some adjustment to get that correct level using a wooden block or see if the screws on the leveling legs need some looking into.

Check out the door seal. If the door seal is worn out, it will definitely result in frost build up and that won't allow the door to close properly, thus the problem of refrigerator not cooling. In addition to that there can be a problem in the door even if the level and other things are fine. You would need something to do about the door then. May be loosen the hinges and fix them in order to get the correct position of the door. Eventually tighten the hinges.

The food and freezer sections will go dysfunctional if the evaporator fan is not working properly. This is because then there will be no airflow to the freezer or the other sections of the refrigerator. Confirm if both the fans are working well by listening to the sound emitted by them. There is a possibility that one may work and the other wont. For that, may be you would have to look for a blockage or something in the one which is not working. Even after doing this you do not find any problem in the fan, you may need to replace it. This are are the general procedure for troubleshooting refrigerator not cooling. with all this, you should be able to identify and fix the problem.

Take care.

Your refrigerator probably has an issue with its "damper control assembly", which regulates cold air coming from the freezer compartment. Contact an appliance service company.

Need to know what the settings are for the range adjustment A,B,C,D slide switch on the front panel on a Amana PTH123A35AC PTAC


Here they are;

Position A, Cool 70-78, Heat 65-73
Position B, Cool 68-81, Heat 68-76
Position C, Cool 66-83, Heat 61-78
Position D, Cool 63-88, Heat 58-83

Amana calls this a Temerature Limiter and says to only set one switch on at a time. If all switches are off then the unit is at full operating range.
Please rate this answer to let me know if it was the fix.
