Go to Sears's website and you will find that they have parts for just about any appliance. Then go to the parts store on the site.

Good day,
If the machine has been running at least 6 hours in cooling mode, and the thermostat shows open. It is defective, and needs replaced.
It is located in the freezer section behind the back panel, and is located on the top of the cooling coil.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for using FixYa

SOURCE: amana bottom refrigerator bx20rw, how do i replace

This link will show an exploded view of the area. Part number 6 is the defrost thermostat. Cut and paste into your browser.

Basically you need to empty the freezer, remove the drawer and back panel, unclip the thermostat and replace, there are two wires and should be the same on the new one, use caution not to damage the evaporator coils.

SOURCE: I have an amana abc2037des.

In both cases it was the defrost timer, an electric clock switch that turns the defrost on & off. On these, you can check this by manually advancing the timer until it goes into defrost. On my ~8 year old Amana, the timer can be advanced at a recessed screwdriver-slotted red knob on the ceiling of the frig portion just behind the panel with the temp controls. If yours has this, advance the knob & see if the defrost turns on (you can tell because the switch clicks and if the compressor is running at the time, it shuts off).

Easy and cheap to replace, if that's the problem. Also if the thing's iced up you can defrost it a couple times this way and get air moving again until you can replace the part.

Other guess could not thermostat. That doesn't control defrost. First check for power on the defrost heater. If none then check deforst timer for power in. If present then change defrost timer. That is where power comes from to the heater. If power then bad heater.

Thermostat controls the compressor. When the temp inside goes up the thermostat turns on the compressor to cool the fridge or freezer. Here's the diagram. It looks like if the thermostat is "open", the heater won't run...

Hope helps.

Fridge and freezer both not cooling

Yes , your fridge can get stuck in defrost mode. If you can locate the thermostat. Sometimes buried behind a panel in the freezer. There's an adjustment screw or trim screw that allows you to advance the timer on the thermostat. Sometimes they stick in the defrost mode. It may happen once and never happen again. If however it does continue you will have to replace that part.

Part of your message was missing but I do see that you did not mention the defrost thermostat=> 12001937 Defrost Thermostat
Chec for any loose wire or burned electrical connections and remember that the defrost thermostat is designed to be on while below freezing temperatures and once the temperaytures reach 50 degrees F the contacts in the defrost thermostat open to prevent the freezer from getting stuck in the defrost cycle for too long and also is a safety feature. Test the defrost thermostat with a OHM Meter while freezing..

I cant locate the defrost timer on my amana AFD2535FES. my freezer is cold but the fridge isn't

That model refrig. does not use older style parts sorry their is no defrost timer. What is uses is a control board to turn on the defrost cycle. Before replacing the defrost control board check the defrost heater and thermostat first. Check both defrost heater and defrost thermostat first using a meter to check continuty on both of them. If either the defrost heater or t-stat dont hav econtinuty they will be the problem. If both check good the control should be replaced. These pictures show where the defrost heater and thermostat are while or model will look different the location of them will be very similar RMOSTAT IT MUST BE COLD SO CHECK IT WHILE FROST IS BUILT UP AROUND IT.oldtech2332_11.jpgoldtech2332_12.jpg

Top half of both fridge and freezer appears to have stopped working.

Your defrost heater or defrost thermostat may be bad. Test defrost heating element for continuity. If heater is good, replace the defrost thermostat. In most cases, replacing both is advisable.

Okay, rookie ;)
Amana fridges have problem with the defrost thermostat, which you may not notice without looking at the thermostat very closely. If the plastic cover on the thermostat is swollen or is higher on one side - replace the thermostat. Fan in these fridges is connected in series with the heater and the defrost thermostat.
... And finally 127 Ohms for a 110v heating element is too high, resistance must be lower. If you measure it through the defrost thermostat - separate them and check again.
