Question about Refrigerators
Causes: If your freezer won't freeze, most likely the condenser coils are dirty which reduces the overall cooling capacity of the freezer. Evaporator fan motor is malfunctioning, and since it's in charge of circulating the air throughout the freezer, this will need to be resolved, pronto.

The computer control circuit board was found to have a burned out circuit. The board is on the lower back side behind a panel, easy to replace. Just need the proper model number to order the board.

The odds are it is a circuit board problem...I had a huge Amana 27 cubic foot side by side and it did the same thing...I diagnosed the problem and replaced the circuit board ....which actually controls everything...one sure sign is to pull the unit out as the other person did and to access the back of the unit where the compressor is...(the comptressor should be on 85% of the tme....if it is not on and warm or hot to the touch then it is a circuit board problem....since compressors will continue to run if there is a defrost problem (most of them anyway), or an Ice build up, etc etc. I don't recommend a layperson trying to replace the circuit board (mine cost $115,) but if you do it is generally in the door mine was a long thin circuit board behind the fridge door handle. .P.S. the heat that the other person felt on the door and around the door seals is normal lots of people don't even know this heat strips exist until something haappens and they start feeling around...these heat strips are to prevent frost of ice build up where the door meets the fridge framd...which can happen due to the extreme temp difference between the two...(inside temp and outside temp).
I hope this has helped...good luck...Knowledge gives you a base from which to yield power over unscrupulous repairmen whop may try to take advantage of people.
Again ...good luck and let me know what happens.....Please rate me .....The Fang.

Hi, if the clicking noise is coming from the back, it is the relay on the compressor. It os possible that the compressor is bad but, most common it is the relay.
Is this under 5 years old? (warranty)
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

The compressor start relay or start capacitor is defective and I will need to go through this in a step by step process until we locate the problem For now unplug the refrigerator to prevent compressor damage until we locate the problem. Let me know when you are ready. Sea Breeze
