Check the compressor with a multimeter for continuity. If you have power coming to the compressor then you will need to replace the motherboard. Click on the link below to read more:

I would suggest that you call the service man as their are lots of things it might be but if its clicking in and no motor then iam afraid it is the motor ,its either burnt out or the pump has siezed ,Or just buy a new one is the only other alternative if the cost of repairs is prohibitive

Freezer compartment is thawing


Sounds like the compressor seized. The buzzing you hear is the compressor trying to kick on.

I noticed that happens a lot with air conditioners if power is interrupted when the compressor is running.

Did you try unplugging it for 20-30 minutes?

Sometimes letting it sit unpowered relieves the pressure that was built up in the compressor, making it easier for it to start.

Amana ars2464bs quit working overnight. Freezer may have been left ajar, all night. The motor is hot and a clicking sound can be heard every couple of minutes. Frige and freezer room temp.


Unplug and manual defrost This happens when warm moist air is drawn into refrigerator. It freezes as frost and confuses the motherboard or defrost timer and put a heavy strain on compressor.. You also have a defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment. It is possible you can run forward to force defrost=> 67001036 Defrost Timer turn timer with small flathead screwdriver slowly clockwise.Click Here=> ARS2464B Amana Refrigerator Control Parts List Part 711 in top left photo can be found in the control panel inside the fresh food compartment.

Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issues
Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Since I tried to help you, Please help me and Rate/Vote on the response. Thanks

Refrigerator wont kick on. Freezer seems to be working, at least the food in the freezer hasnt started to thaw yet.


the refrigerator gets its cold air from the freezer compartment via ductwork between the freezer and refrigerator. a fan in the freezer circulates the air to the refrigerator. your fan is probably not functioning correctly or not it all. you should hear it running in the freezer compartment. if you do not hear it running it is either snagged on some ice or the motor itself is burned out and will have to be replaced.

Model 106.9630280 The freezer is working but


you probably have a bad air circulation fan or a restriction in the ductwork between the freezer and the refrigerator that the circulation fan supplies the cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator compartment. you should be able to hear the circulation fan motor running when the unit is in normal operation mode. the only time the fan will not be running is when the unit is in defrost mode which occurs once every six to eight hours depending on the defrost timer in your unit.

The top of the freezer part is getting cold but the bottom of the Refrigerator part is not getting cold. The Refrigerator is only 10-11 months old ; what is wrong?


you need to check and see if the fan in the back of the freezer compartment is running. when the fan is not running the cold air will not be passed to the refrigerator compartment. open the freezer door and turn the unit to its coldest setting until the compressor kicks in then listen to hear the fan in the freezer compartment.

Both Freezer & Fridge compartments not cooling


clean the coil behind the fridge or under the fridge (where ever they are) and make sure both fans are running, the one in the freezer and the one underneath. If that don't work you may be low on freon change fan motor

Fridge motor is very very noisy


It sounds like it could be ice around the fan motor. Unplug it and let it defrost for about 12 hrs with the doors open. Plug it back in and see if it has quit making the noise. If it did it probably needs the defrost timer replaced. Good luck. kstfas
