Recently got 2nd hand Amana side by side model XRSS687BB. Compressor stops when closing fridge door. Freezer working as long as fridge door remains open. Fridge damper closed and won't open though it
I have went through something like this before, the serviceman told me it was in fact a compressor issue. Do you hear some kind of buzzing noise? Is it extremely hot? Then it's a compressor issue. They are pretty expensive to have replaced, would recommend to purchase a different brand. I had the same problems as Frigidaire. I had the compressor replaced twice during a time period of 2 years. It went out a third time and it was out of warranty and they told me that the compressor didn't receive any kind of warranty gain for itself and the company shortened the warranty of the compressor because of the issues they had with them. Since they were aftermarket ones, didn't apply to the original warranty. If you continue to have issues with this brand, please research the brand integrity online before you make another bad investment. I paid more for the new brand but it lasted longer than 9 months. The next fridge that I bought was older and used but lasted 5 years, so I stuck to that brand and it paid dividends stop far.
