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.

Amana refrigerator not cooling, what should be done or what should we check to determine the problem?

The purpose of a refrigeration circuit is to move heat from the inside of the cabinet to the outside.

The compressor pumps refrigerant around the circuit and if everything is ok the evaporator is cold and the condenser becomes warm. If the compressor is running but nothing inside or outside is happening either the compressor is defective or the refrigerant has leaked away.

If the condenser is warm or hot but the inside is not cold the defrosting panel might be permanently switched on.

Amana bottom freezer/frige not cooling. Clicking sound then buzzing sounds and clicks off. Compressor hot. Hear it running but no cooling.

Solution to this recyle-Amana is to scrap it and get a "GOOD" brand!!
The condenser/compressor is made by Tucumsah, excuse the spelling, but you know what I'm saying.

Fridge and freezer not cooling. Hot air coming from front of fridge.( Overly Hot and has a smell of burning )

1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.

Compressor not running.

The fan running near the compressor is a good thing. If you suspect the starter it is the little box on the compressor. It usually consists of the overload and starter. You may also have a start capacitor, if you do you will need a multimeter that can check capacitors. Read the case, it should be say like a 5uf (micro farad) or something like that. They make kits to replace the starter/overload combo and also sell just a capacitor if that tests bad. I have seen some starters that are white in color with a small white plastic clip that holds the cover on go bad recently. If you have this type, take it off and shake it. If it rattles it's bad (really).
