Question about Amana AFD2535DES French Door Refrigerator
4 years old. 10 days ago, freezer stopped freezing. Kept hearing a clicking noise, like a switch, go for 10 seconds or so then stop. Would do this every five minutes, but freezer no longer freezing. Took everything out, called the repairman. By the time he showed up 2 days later, the freezer was again working, he was unwilling to do anything. 4-5 days with freezer OK.
2 days ago, freezer stopped freezing again. Same clicking noise.
Yesterday I noticed the inside refrigerator french doors - a lot of heat coming from both surfaces where the doors meet. Refrigerator getting warmer, got up to 60 degrees. Took all of the food out. This morning, freezer partially freezing, refrigerator at about 45 (warmer than usual).
Repairman coming tomorrow, what can I tell him? Something's obviously not right. I've read a few other posts here, mine is very intermittent.
I had the same issue. It was the relay overload which essentially provides the extra boost to get the compressor going. The switch tries for about 10 seconds before giving up and then retries 3 - 4 minutes later. In the early stages of failure, eventually it will work and the compressor will kick on. But eventually the switch will fail and will just cycle through the 10 second attempt every 3 to 4 minutes. The part is about $35 - part number 67005560.
