I have an Amana bottom freezer refrigerator, model no. BX21V1C,it stopped cooling and freezing. The relay was replaced 6 months ago and now it has happened again. You can hear the click and buzz of the...


Good day,
Sounds as if the relay has failed again. ....or when relays start going bad, it could be an issue with the internal part of the compressor.
But the relay approach should be your first step.

Thank you for using FixYa

I purchased an Amana refrigerator that has been making a humming noise and will not keep food cold or frozen. what' wrong? The model # is ABB1924DEB, and I purchsed it in 2005. is it included in their...


The recall was for units that had embraco compressors. the relay would burn up and not start the comperssor. (hum and click) some amanas had tecumseh compressors. They would just scize up and not run (hum and click)No recall. remove the back cover and see what name is on your compressor. If its hot and trying to start, Embraco needs new relay, Tecumseh needs to be replaced with a embraco compressor.

The ice is melting in my Amana arb2205.It clicks,buzzes for a few


sounds like a bad compressor relay. The compressor it self might be bad but 80% chance it is just the relay.

Amana ABC2037DEB after 4 years, now freezer click and hum melting


that click followed by a hum can only be one thing
pull the unit out and feel the compressor, if its really hot you have a relay and overload issue, and it struggles to start.
with any luck, it is the external relay and overload found mounted to the comresssor should be a lil white block
if not it will be two differant parts
a lil white one and a brown one
let these cool a bit and check both for continutity
ive included a link for the parts
they are 10 and 11 on the schematic

Amana refrigerators is not staying cold and freezer is not freezing. Makes a "humming" sound, on and off, like a low "grind" noise, or like the noise an airconditioner makes prior to kicking on.


Mine had the same problem, and I had a tech out today who determined it's the motor inside the freezer. It's (the fan) not running. It's a $100 part, but if your refrigerator is new enough, it's probably worth the investment to go ahead and have it fixed.

Amana/Maytag ACD2234HRS sometime not working


If your compressor is running with the noise you described, I would make sure the parts that were replace on compressor are working properly. Also use a amp meter and get a reading on amp draw while it is humming. Anything that is above normal readings for the compressor would indicate compressor is bad or the relay and starter are not working properly. I need a series number also like a number 15 before the model number, Thanks, Sea Breeze

When compressor clicks on it makes funny electrical humming sound and then makes click sound and does not get cold. the compressor feels hot.


sounds like a bad compressor to me, you should have 5 yr full warr on compressor, if over 5 years you can try to replace the overload relay assy attached to the side of the compressor

It sounds like your compressor has failed. The hum is the compressor trying to start and the click following is the over current protector opening.

Buzzing intermittent


It sounds like the ice maker. If you don't have the water hooked up, and the ice sensor bar is in the down position, the ice maker assembly will attempt to make ice continuously.
Solution is easy: raise the ice sensor bar until it clicks in the up position. It will lock in this position, and the ice maker will not cycle anymore.
