Question about Amana ABB1924DEB / ABB1924DEW / ABB1924DEQ Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
My refrigerator is not cold, the freezer is fine. I've upped the temperature and it still feels the same - not too cold. It's only 3 years old. Anything I can do before I have to call someone?
I can't find my owners manual. Is there someplace I can download it?
Thank you inadvance for your help.
There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

This comes with a 1 yr warranty from date of purchase. Look and see if there is a thick frost buildup on the back panel in the freezer section. If no frost, shut the freezer door and feel for air flow out of the top middle vent in the fridge section. I would remove that vent cover to make sure the damper is open. If the damper is closed push it open then feel for air flow. If no air flow is detected then the evaporator fan motor is bad which is a very commom problem on this model, in fact the most common problem. If the damper is shut and when you hold it open you do feel air flow then the damper is bad. Let me know what you find.

Sounds like it has either a bad compressor relay or if the brand name of the compressor is Tecumseh, it will need to be retrofit to a more reliable longer lasting Embraco compressor.

Chances are if they are getting cool -
1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running
2) Defrost heater has failed
3) Defrost sensor has failed
4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.
Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator/freezer.
Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above.
