SOURCE: Fridge does not get cold enough

first the freezer does all the cooling there are air vents in top of the refrigerator that the evaporator fan draws air through then blows it down to cool the fridge in the fridge section you should see an air vent if you don't have a defrost problem then you have an air flow problem first do you hear the fan running if you see heavy frost on the back wall of the freezer wall where the fan is then you have a defrost problem and that's a different repair but if you don't then remove the four screws and pull the panel carefully as the fan is there see if there is heavy frost on the evaporator a large aluminum honey comb so much that air cannot come through it under that part will be an a tray with around hole in it make sure that's is not frozen and the drain hole is open then check that the square hole that goes down to the fridge is clear and check the two square styrofoam intake blocks are clea you an pull them out gently and see if its iced up under there after you check that reply to me on any fault

SOURCE: Side by side Sub Zero not cold enough.

How old is "OLDER" ? If there is no frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer you could have one of two problems. On older units the compressor wears out with years of service and no longer pumps efficiently. Or it could possibly be low on refrigerant charge. ether one of these two problems is a sign that is time to update to new unit.

If you have frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer section you then would have a problem in the defrost circuit attributed to the timer, defrost heaters or defrost thermostat.

SOURCE: freezer is building up frost and refrigerator is not cold enoough

Almost certainly, you have a leak within the freezer compartment.

The cooling system will use a divertor valve to concentrate coolant to the fridge or freezer compartment - whichever is necessary to maintain selected temperatures.

If a seal within either compartment is compromised and leaks then the coolant will be excessively diverted to that area in an attempt to lower it's temperature - the other section will suffer since more coolant is diverted to the weaker area; the weaker area that is being excessively cooled will also have more moist air circulating, hence moisture will contribute to a build up of ice - exacerbating the problem.

Ensure that both fridge and freezer doors are closing properly, if they appear to be secure then also check that the seals are airtight - there should be no ice accumulating around them.

You might need to re-align the doors, or less likely, replace the door seals.

Please reply if you require further clarification or help.

SOURCE: Freezer not cold enough, refrigerator not cold

Hi,
This could be the defrost timer or the defrost heater coil... The evaporator coils are located at the back of the freezer compartment. To access you will need to remove all the racks and then there is a cover held on by a few screws at the back of freezer and under it you will see the coils... Do not beat bang or scrape them... Use a hair dryer or heat gun to melt ice or you could just use hot water . Put your model #.JCB2388GTB into searspartsdirect.com and they will show parts diagrams.
If I can help with anything else please let me know.

Fans keeps running and the freezer is cold but not enough to harden ice cream


Look inside the back wall inside freezer and if you see ice building up then your Amana needs either a defrost timer=> 67001036 Defrost Timer or you may be having problems with the defrost heater=> 67002493 Defrost Heater Here are some large pictures to help you locate your parts that may be defective=> Amana_ARB9058CS_Evaporator_Components item location number 15 in lower left side of photo. In this case I think your refrigerator may need the defrost timer below but I would like you to manually turn the clock on the time clockwise slowly until compressor and fans stop running. The defrost timer is located inside the fresh food compartment and just behind the controls for adjusting temps inside fresh food compartment location=> Amana ARB9058CS Controls That is my most likely guess the timer but sometimes it will be the defrost heater or defrost thermostat affect these also here=> 12001937 Defrost Thermostat
