    I have the same model and the same problem. Purchased unit June 2006 and I am on my third damper motor and I need a fourth now. Symptoms are the exact same as you described. Costs me over $100 each time the guy comes out cause he says it's out of warranty.

I found this problem addressed on applianceblog.com and per they recomended part # 67006166. My repairman ordered this part and it had been superseeded by an even newer version, # 10127429. He installed that newest version in late June 2008 and it has been great ever since. So for me # 10127429 was the answer. Hope this helps

Try damper part number W10167268 from Whirlpool. They re-engineered the part, it's works different. Whirlpool issued a bulletin to servicers, but won't cover it under warranty (I have tried for many customers) "A bulletin is NOT a recall"

Noise after the motor starts


Is this a clicking or a knock/pop sound? The knock knock sound can sometimes be helped a little bit by tilting the refrigerant filter drier (located in the compressor compartment) to a horizontal position. Ask your technician to do this for you.

AMANA REFRIGERATOR MAKES A LOUD POP!


Dear Customer

Please perform the following

If it's cooling ok, they're probably normal sounds. Modern refrigerators can make many noises, most people aren't home long enough to hear them. A popping sound could be defrost water hitting a hot defrost element, or refrigerant making noise in the cooling lines. If it's working ok, ignore it. Please rate this,Thank u

Noisy Amana ABB2227DEB


The motor is an "auto damper" that opens/closes to let cold air from the freezer comp. into the refer comp. depending on the temp. There is nothing you can do for maintenance, the little motor runs the damper when needed automatically. Some motors are quiet, some are noisy (grind grind grind) as the open and close. Sort of the nature of the beast, if you're lucky you get one that stays quiet.
