Question about Amana Heating & Cooling
You have probably a compressor start capacitor or relay damage and you have to replace first capacitor and if problem insist then go to the relay. If the problem insist then you have a complete compressor failure. Often when this happens the compressor will "lock up" or not be able to turn when power is supplied to it. Overheating or lack of lubrication are usually the main causes of compressor failure. Overheating can be caused by the outdoor coil around the compressor getting clogged with dirt, leaves, or grass. Loss of the refrigerant charge will also cause the compressor to overheat. It is the cool return gas coming back to the compressor that helps to keep it from overheating.
As you can see there are many things that can go wrong with an air conditioner and I have not come close to exhausting the possibilities here. I have just touched on the most common problems in a very basic way.
There are some basic trouble shooting things that can be done very easily. Most problems are above out of the range of comfort for many homeowners and professional help should be consulted before any attempt is made at repairs. Remember also, that the release of refrigerant gases into the atmosphere is a federal offense in the US. Proper care must always be taken to minimize the release of any gases. A license is also required to handle refrigerants. Make sure that the professional you call has the proper certifications to handle refrigerants properly

what this problem indicate is that there has bee a gap between the compressor and the fan what you are to do to fix up this problem is to carefully put off the power supply connected to the air condition then bring the air condition closer to your self unscrew it from the screw and then locate the fan cover with a white round plastic remove it and then position it back to it closer to the filter ,
but if the problem remain then it mean that there is a leakage of (gas) from the compressor which will need a seal up by a refrigerator technician .
thank and thanks for using fixya.
