Amana SZD22MB2L is freezing in refrigerator compartment

I would start with checking that hte air damper that controls air coming from the freezer over to the fridge is working properly. Thats more than likely the issue. Just in case also check that the temperature control is working as designed

My amana 26 side by side refrigerator/freezer keeps running and everything is freezing. i have tried to turn it down with no help

1x1.gif How To Replace the Temperature Control Remove the temperature control dial or housing. Pull the dial straight away from the wall. Remove the temperature control. If there is a housing over the control, it either snaps into place or is held in place with screws. Remove the screws, or gently depress the retaining clips with a small screwdriver. Allow the housing to hang by its wiring.
Before replacing the control, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The control is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the control before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the switch with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connector (do not pull on the wire) off of the control's terminal. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.
The temperature control also has a temperature probe permanently attached. Follow the path of the probe and remove any fasteners that hold it in place.
Carefully replace the temperature probe along the same path as it was originally installed. Avoid any unnecessary bending, and do not bend it into a sharp angle as this can damage the probe. Connect the wires to the new temperature control. Replace the switch and housing (if any) and press the knob onto the the control's hub. Adjust the control to a midway setting. Plug in the refrigerator. After one to two hours check the temperature.

Amana ABB2224DES fridge freezes everything in the main compartment (not just the freezer). Doesn't matter what the level setting is at.

Sounds like your Temperature Control Sensor has gone bad. Could also be that the door on the duct from the freezer to the fridge is stuck open due to a bad solenoid there.

Ice maker not working. refrigerator is freezing everything. seems to run all the time.Help!!!!!! It is an Amana about 10 yrs old.

if you have the settings correct then the cold control(ref setting) is bad. but some older models use a baffling system which confuse some people. the freezer settind turned to the lowest setting make you fridge colder. when you put the freezer on the highest setting it allows less airflow. which in turn keeps ref warmer.

Amana SPD26VW runs, lights on, does not freeze

I called Amana and found the "sealed systems" are still under warranty. It cost me $85 for a service call and the fridge is working. The problem was a plugged "capillary line."

Amana refrigerator fresh food control does not work at all

first of all, check to make sure your fan is working, also check the inside compartment for the damper should be open when your rise or lower the temperature settings on your dial. when you rise your temperature dial to 5 you should feel air flow coming out of the damper, if not check to make sure that the evaporator fan is working first, if it is than check the damper door should be open sometime this damper door gets stuck on something or they break off.

Probably need to replace that temperature control. Also check damper. If manual, set to where less air is going to fridge.
