Question about Refrigerators
I bought a used Amana bottom freezer refrigerator a month ago, and just starting today the freezer is not getting cold enough to freeze, and the fridge is not getting cold enough to keep the milk from spoiling. Although the fan is running, it's not getting cold enough, even when I put it to the highest setting possible.The two things I've noticed is that fan is blowing room temperature air out of the back of the fridge, and there is A LOT of frost on the back of the freezer wall. I don't know if these are two good or bad things (since I know little about fridges)
You maybe will struggle if you hav'nt done anything like this before
with back panel off freezer still, look for the defrost heater and check for continuity through it. also there is usually a thermal fuse or cutout in series with it. check for continuity thro this as well. after that, probably a fault in the main pcb. appliance should function for a week or more now depending on how often you open the door

The defrost system has failed. to get it working temporarily, take the back panel off inside the freezer. melt ice off with a hairdryer.
after that, fault can be in several areas - defrost heater, thermal fuse or the main pcb
