    I have the same problem (fridge is 3 1/2 years old). I was told the defrost thermostat needed to be replaced, which we had done. Did not solve the problem. Fridge is still warm and freezer remains cold. We've been going through this cycle every two weeks for the past six weeks. Thinking of just buying a new fridge because I'm so aggravated!

    I have an Amana bottom freezer as well. Top was warm, freezer had food frozen solid. I called a tech -$140 later- who took off the lid (top part of the fridge) located under the vegetable bins inside the fridge. It's a large square plate held with 4-6 screws. Take this off. There is a a coil and there is also a drain there and a fan. It's a safe bet that this drain is clogged with ice. The tech took a hair dryer and melted the ice. Don't use a kife, however tempting. Others have suggested using a steamer. Be careful not to let the fan warm with the dryer or it will become misshapen (my experience). This should work for you. It was good for a couple of months for us. Now I think the drain behind the fridge is clogged and the fridge is noisy. Good luck.

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.

My amana bottom freezer won't cool both the fridge and freezer are warm


Ice build-up inside refrigerator and cycling switch not functioning. Requires technician to take apart inside of refrigerator, clear ice and replace switch. Took my repair man about half hour to fix.
