Question about Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water
Fridge is not cooling, fans run but freezer and frige do not get cold. I cleaned off all coils and it cooled and made ice for a week and quit again. So I double checked coils again and cleaned . Ran good for about 3 days and quit cooling again. Model # 56958692890
You're frosting up due to either: bad defrost timer/heater or low gas. I'm assuming that you completely defrosted the unit, that there are no open liquids inside and the door remained closed most of the time to remove the threat of excess moisture in the box.
Defrost timer issues:
The unit should 'rest' about 1-2 hours a day where you don't hear the compressor and the unit should try to melt the ice. It has a heater to do that. The timer or the heater or a connection could be bad.
More likely: you've got a low gas situation. The way to check is that the compressor should come on at some point. Check the larger tube. Is should get frosty and then clear off or stay wet. It might even dry off. If it remains frosty...you're low on gas. Depending on the type of gas you need...it may be R 12...they unit may be unrepairable by other than a licensed tech.
