Question about Amana Refrigerators
First thing to check is the timer,remove the bottom kick plate,on the left side you'll see a knob,if you can turn it by hand turn it slowly or use a screw driver and turn it until it clicks,it could be stuck in defrost,if the compressor runs then you need to change out the timer.if nothing happens turn the timer until it clicks again.now go in the rear of the machine,unplug the fridge,remove the bottom rear panel and you'll see the compressor,there's a start device on the compressor and they do fail.remove the clip and before you remove it look and see where it clips on to,so when you have to put it back on or replace the part you know where to clip it again.slide off the start device,shake it,if you hear a rattling noise like a piece is broke off inside it or if it smells burnt this is your problem,the part number is W10189190 and it's like 20 dollars.when you call your parts store,give them the model number off the fridge and give them the p number and they will make sure the part number i gave you is correct.now from what you are discribing it sounds like the compressor isn't running,is this correct?and the machine is getting warm.when you change out the start device and if the compressor still doesn't start then you have a bad compressor and most likely you'll need to change out the machine.let me know what you find
