Question about Amana Refrigerators
Typically with this model it is either the timer or the defrost thermostat.
This is behind the back wall of the freezer. It is attached in series with the element. It is designed to open when the heater gets hot enough. The part is about the size of a stack of 6 quarters and typically has a blue end coating on one end. The other end is silver in colour and should be clipped on the black coloured heating element. It will have 2 wires coming out of the blue end.
If this part is defective then it will have to be replaced. by cutting a splicing a new one in. Be sure to unplug the fridge before replacing it.
There are 3 main components that can give issues; the timer, the thermostat and the heater. All 3 should be checked to confirm the fault. NOTE the timer contacts can be burned out as they arc under normal operation.
If you have a multimeter then you can check if the heater circuit has 0 or close to 0 resistance when there is frost on the back wall of the freezer. if it is then the timer is bad.
