RE:Amanda ABB1927DE Refrigerator
The refrigerator stopped running. The light inside is working and the outlet has power.
The Touch Temperature Controls show a
"dash line" for both refig and freezer and the
temperature control pads do not respond to input.
Unplugging and replugging worked great! (We left it unplugged for about one minute. The motor started up almost instantly but we still had no numbers on display. I discovered that after replugging, you need to touch one of the up or down arrows for the display to reappear.
What a lifesaver this was!
Thanks so much.

Re: Touch Temperature Controls not working
Do you know where to find the defrost timer?? If so theres a turn screw to advance the timer to start the compressor on as sometimes the motors burn out in the middle of a cycle and prevent the compressor to resart when the temp drops.

Generally, if you unplug the refrigerator and set the freezer and refrigerator temperature controls to off then plug it back it, this will put the refrigerator in forced defrost mode. Keep the doors closed and allow defrosting to last for about 20 minutes. Then unplug again and reset the temperature controls to mid-range or a little above, and plug it back in. If this does not reset the defrost cycle, you probably need service.
That sounds like a defective=> 67001036 Defrost Timer slowing down and sticking in it's defrost position on the timer cam. The defrost timer can be found inside the fresh food section behind the controls. See=> ARB2214CB Controls location #12 in the photo HERE Questions? Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911
You need to test the thermistors in the unit. It should read around 10,000 ohms at room temperature and around 29,500 ohms at 36 degrees. If it is not reading properly, you will need to replace the thermistor kit. Here is the kit to order. The thermistor is located in the light assembly.
Is the refrigerator still working? Is there any cold air in the freezer? If your compressor stopped working it would cause the refrigerator to be warm also. I had a problem with my amana refrigerator where the freezer wasn't getting cold enough and it was due to a condenser fan running intermittently. i replaced the fan and was back in business. i would check to make sure both your fan and your compressor are operating...
sounds like the control board is bad part 12868513,there is no timer on this fridge and it sounds like it's not going into defrost,this board controls this,it's located in the fridge section inside where your touch pad is,i'm pretty sure you have to take down the light cover to get at it,it's been a while since i've changed one,good luck
defrost timer probably failed in defrost mode go online search for defrost timer location and manually advancing or initiating a defrost cycle , it may pop into run mode and tell you thats what it is , 90% of the time thats it and they are cheap !
could be a glitch in the defrost cycle the adaptive defrost control could be faulty and when you unplugged it you might have reset it it should be ok till monday but i would just get the basics untill the tech looks at it
I also have the same refrigerator model 106.56566400 and periodically when the power goes off in the house the refrigerator & freezer will stop cooling. Try pushing the on/off button located inside the refrigerator to the left of the digital temperature controls. Hold the button down, this turns the unit off, then press it again to turn it back on. This basically resets the refrigerator, and most of the time works to get the refrigerator cooling again. Try this first before calling a repair man.
