It could be that you have a shorted element on the defrost heater in the freezer section of the box. it will be located under the freezer coil, and it will have two black wires running to it. one or both of those wires will be burnt at the end where it connect to the element. If you don't find it here, I would call a service tech.

Amana SRD520T - appliance tripped the circuit breaker. After power had been restored the compressor ran but no cooling in freezer or fridge


With the compressor running, open the freezer and listen if the fan is running. If it is not, replace it. Most likely, this is your problem.

If it is running, turn off the refrigerator. Remove the rear panel from the freezer. Inspect the coils. If they are covered in ice, let them thaw completely. This ice will prevent the freezer and consequently, the refrigerator from getting cold.

If the fan works and the freezer coils are not cold, then I am afraid it is time for another refrigerator.

Frigidaire F44Q21RJ and it's not cooling


Well it may not be what you want to hear but we can see what is triping the breaker. We need to test the compressor windings first thing, Tell me when you are ready and I will leave something for you to follow by. If you have questions please ask. If the refrigerator is plugged in unplug until ready. Go to this page=> Whirlpool Products Read the top notes and watch the first movie about ohming compressors single phase. Then we will go from there.

My Amana refrigerator freezer is totally off.


Ouch!
You may have lost your fridge. Try This.
  1. Unplug.
  2. Take a table lamp & plug into socket where you had fridge plugged in. Turn light on. If it lights. Fridge is trouble.
  3. If no light check another socket make sure light works if it works your socket, wiring or breaker is your problem.

  1. If fridge check wire to & from fridge make sure it is unplugged feel & look for crimp or gap in wire.
  2. Check connection to fridge some have a reset button or overload fuse. Reset or replace if you find one.

  1. If socket try another socket see if fridge runs.
  2. If it runs you will have to troubleshoot house wiring.
Contact me if you need more help. Good Luck!
Please rate if this fixed or was helpful. Thank you.

Water and Ice in Door Tastes Awful!!!


If your water tastes ok without the fridge then you'll need to replace or clean the piping inside the fridge.
If your water has the same smell and taste without the fridge then you'll need a better grade filter on the water going into the fridge.
If it's in your fridge piping try going to a plumbing supply and ask them for a cleaner to run through the fridge!

Refrigerator & Freezer won't cool!


Hello ashshea8
Welcome

Try this,
Turn off the fridge and freezer controls, and then go to the breaker box and turn off the breaker to the fridge for 5 minutes!!!!!
Then restart it and the fridge and freezer controls.
This should reset the system and solve the problem. let me know if either were the case.
It now will take some 8 to 12 hours to gets back to temperature.

If not you have a freon leak or a bad thermostat.
Let me know how it goes.
Waiting your response.
Huuum,
Please remember to leave a rating.
