You really need to measure the Ohms resistance for the motor.
OL means the motor is dead
0.000 means the motor is short circuited and is dead
160 to 300 ohms the motor is good

Amana Ptac 2012 R410A runs compressor 5-10 min then will not run only fan. Freon level is good. Reset and compressor will run again then only fan again..cleaned


You said in another post that the error was c7. That means evaporator freeze. Too cold. That could be lack of air flow, bad sensor, ice on the coils.

Freezer not freezing


Possible failed evaporator fan motor (cooling coil fan) or failure in the defrost system resulting in the cooling coil being blocked with ice.

Lower shelves of the refrigerator freeze foods


Can you hear the inside fan motor? If not this isn't the problem but its a symptom of a bad defrost terminator. It is located on the freezer side attached to the evaporator coil. Amana shuts off the fan in the defrost cycle, when this part fails the fan will not come back on after the defrost cycle. Is relatively easy to replace.

Ammana Fridge-Evaporator Fan not working


Replace the defrost bimetal . On older Amanas' , the coil has to be cold , before the evaporator fan starts ( bimetal closes ) . This way , heat from the defrost cycle , will not be blown into the refrig section .

Fridge problem


Hi. The most common failure for this make refrigerator is a bad evaporator fan motor. You should feel air coming out of the diffuser in your freezer. If not, either the fan motor is bad or you have alot of frost build up on the evaporator. You would see alot of frost on the back wall of the freezer where the evaporator coil is located. If this is the case, most likely the defrost bimetal thermostat. But if no frost, the evaporator fan motor is most common and likely to be your problem. Visit me on Ebay username: themackshack. Good luck! Mack
