    Hope you received my replay regarding Amana refrigerator.

    ON means compressor turns ON and stay on for many hours until I rotate temperature knob to 2 or 0 position

    OFF means comressor do not turn ON automatically untill I rotate temperature knob to 6 or 7 position

    I checked area of fan and defrost thermostat behind inside back cover of the freazer. No ice accumulation found.

When you mention On and OFF you mean the comressor?
Also what is the model of your Fridge.

    The problem with your refrigerator is a very simple and not so expensive also. You just need to replace the thermostat control. This is the knob control you rotate from 0 to 7.

    Is a very frequent problem since the control thermostat is an electric switch which turns on and off the compressor.

    We have here a link with the parts layout of you fridge and you can see the thermostat control and you have the part number code and you can even order it from the same page.

    The part you need to replace is diagram no 1101.

Temperature control in fridge is turned all the way down but still too cold-25*, freezer=10*. What can i do? Amana SZD27ME side by side


Turning down the dial is not recommended as it does not turn the temperature down. Please return it the factory setting. If your temperature is too cold in the fridge, it may be the timer or thermostat. If it its in the freezer, it's the thermostat. If it both, you have a bigger problem, such as the compressor may be malfunctioning.

I have an Amana ARB2217C bottom freezer with working lights, fan, and freezer. But the refrigerator doesn't seem to want to cool. I think it stopped a couple of days ago.I've turned the thermostat from...


The problem has to be in the damper control inside the refrigerator section.

Disconnect the refrigerator from power and remove the food from the top shelf. The damper control is in the box near the top of the refrigerator section behind the temperature control knob.

Remove the knob and cover until you can access the damper control. You can prop the damper control open with a pencil or something to make the refrigerator work until you get a part if you need to. Here is the part you need.

Amana refrigerator warm


Chances are if they are getting cool but not cold-

1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running
2) Defrost heater has failed
3) Defrost sensor has failed
4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.

Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator.
Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above.

Help, no water but have ice out of door on amana side by side.


The freezer temperature dial is set too cold and it is causing the water to freeze in the tube right where it enters the freezer section.If you turn the temperature selector one or two numbers warmer for the freezer it will help.
You will also have to turn the box off and let the freezer thaw real good so that the line will thaw. Once this has been done, it should work fine.
