Cleaning the fins is always good. Is the fan by the compressor running? It needs to help cool the compressor. The description you mention sounds like the compressor is overheated and tripping the thermal overload on the compressor. See if you can turn if off for a day to let it all return to room temp then see if the compressor kicks on. If it was overheated it should run again for a while before overheating again. Let us know how that works and we can go from there.

It is the compressor that has failed. The hum is it trying to start and the following click is the overload protector opening. What is the temperature where the refrigerator is located? Allow the compressor to cool down before trying to restart it. If it still does not restart after it has cooled off it is done.

You have a sealed system problem. There is either a small leak or a restriction somewhere in the tubing. This isn't something you could've caused so don't worry about that. Unfortunately this isn't something you can fix yourself either. You require a certified refrigeration technician to fix this problem.

SOURCE: amana side by side not cooling

any properly operating compressor will be hot to the touch,that is the way they evaporate water taken from defrosting. On fridge compressors there are two windings, 'run' and 'start'. the start winding will give it the initial boost and the run winding will keep it running for as long as it needs to. If the start winding gives out the fridge will do what you're describing because it's only using the run. you will need an appliance repair tech to fix it. On the other hand, refrigerators also need clean coils and air flow to operate correctly. Try removing any bags, boxes of cereal, brooms, etc. out from on top and around the fridge. Second check your coils, they are either on the back or underneath (behind the snap-in kick plate) and either vacuum them if you can, or use a product alled 'blast-a-coil' or other similar coil cleaning agent to clean them. That should work for you, if not, post again, we'll work on it!

Refrigerator not cooling.


No the evaporator fan not running has nothing to do with the compressor. I would suspect that you are freezing up over the evaporator because the fan is not running and when it ices up the air can not flow through properly therefore causing the refrigerator side to get warmer. Replace the fan and you should be fine. Take the back panel inside the freezer off and see if you are all iced up. If you bare then I would replace the fan . You also said the defrost heater did not come on. That will also cause a freeze up. Possible replacement of the defrost heater may be needed. Good Luck!

Side by side doesn't cool down enough. Freezer


If the back panel on the inside of the freezer section is all snowed up looking you have a defrost problem, if the fan in the back of the freezer is not running, you may have a bad fan motor or a bad defrost terminator, hold freezer door switch closed with your hand and listen for fan.

If the fan by the compressor stopped on the outside of unit or the condensor coils are badly in need of cleaning it also will not cool properly.

Lastly, a leak or bad compressor may be the cause.(unit usually runs without shutting off, hope this helps

Condenser shuts down after a couple of hours.


check capacitors, make sure the condensor coil is clean. sounds like the compressor is overheating. is the condensor fan motor still turning when it stops cooling. if not check low voltage wires to condensor, furnace and t-stat

FRONT OF SIDE PANELS FEEL VERY HOT


need to check to see if your condensor fan is running. this fan is located by the compressor. it will run at the same time the compressor is running. this fan keeps the condensor coils cooled off. if its not running then the unit tries to cool down through the cabinet

The freezer is cold but not cold enough to make ice


Check the back (interior) lower half of the freezer wall. If you see a frost build up, you either have an issue with your defrost cicuit (timer, heater, thermostat) or the evaporator (freezer) fan is not running. If there is not a frost build up on the back wall you either have a sealed system (weak compressor, leak or restriction) problem....or the condensor fan motor is not working. This would cause the compressor to overheat and shut down until cooled, and prevent the deep freeze.
