The fan located behind the panel in the freezer usually is blowing air at all times this is how the cold air inside the freezer goes to the refrigerator a damper door opens and closes by a control located on the ceiling of the refrigerator usually where the light assembly is if the fan is turning slowly or going on sometimes then off I would replace the fan but before you do check for shorts in the wiring due to you saying the the light is going on and off you can also check the door switch if this is faulty this would tend to make both of these instances happen but i would lead more towards either a short in the wiring or needing a new fan If you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

Freezer makes really loud noise


You need someone to check the fans and where the noise is coming from before the repair cost you a lot of money because of damage it can cause. The fan may be hitting ice in the freezer or out of balance because it is worn out. No one can hear what you hear and someone will need to be there to check these things out, Sea Breeze

Freezer not freezing nor ice maker


Is the refrigerator still working? Is there any cold air in the freezer? If your compressor stopped working it would cause the refrigerator to be warm also. I had a problem with my amana refrigerator where the freezer wasn't getting cold enough and it was due to a condenser fan running intermittently. i replaced the fan and was back in business. i would check to make sure both your fan and your compressor are operating...

Freezer on bottom is cold,refrigerator on top is warm. 2 days before failure there was a vibration noise intermittently between fridge and freezer that stoppped if freezer door was shut hard


This is a little strange to hear but something caused the vibration. Closing the doors hard or soft may make big changes in sound because of pressure change. I just want to know if the compressor is purring away without overheating. Anytime there is a restriction in ventilation the evaporator fan will struggle to push the air to the freezer and enough to refrigerator side to maintain safe temperatures. On the bottom even if the fan stopped the bottom would work because it is below and cold is heavier than warm. I will look over your parts breakdown to see what vent, dampers or fans that may cause this, work with me on this and I will help you solve this. Thanks Sea Breeze

Model gss20iepcbb freezer side works fine ...fridge


on most units they have two controls refrigerator control is electric t-stat that runs compressor freezer control think of it as a door colder freezer door is barely open warmer freezer door all the way open all cooling coils are in the freezer and a fan moves the air to refrigerater side possible problem fan not running
door freezer control all the way closed
light switch broken light staying on door gasket not sealing tight find door switch press verify light shuts off and fan starts
look for torn or damaged door gasket can look from outside with light and see if gasket contacts case on all four sides
freezer is cold enough so compressor is ok hopr this helps good luck ron

We have an Amana side by side that is only cold on the bottom in both the freezer and fridge. Also the top shelf of the fridge is hot from the light, which does not seem to go off when the door is shut....


amana runs power to the fan thru the defrost sensor that is mounted on the evaporator coil. these sensors will get moisture inside of them and short out causing intermittent fan operation. replace then sensor and your frig will return to normal. thanks for using FixYa peyton
