Your refrigerator probably has an issue with its "damper control assembly", which regulates cold air coming from the freezer compartment. Contact an appliance service company.

My Black Amana sxs Model SCD25JPW Fridge isn't cooling. Both sides are hot


OK, lets try a couple of things before you run out and buy a new unit. On that unit I believe the defrost thermostat is on the front bottom of the unit. Turn the little dial til it clicks and tell me if the unit kicks on.

I have an amana fridge model # arb190rcw.nothing remains frozen in the freezer.and i have noticed ice on the back wall of the freezer compartment


Your cooling coils have frosted so much that there is ice forming allover the cooling coils and preventing the actual cooling inthe fridge. First of all shut off the fridge for about 10 hours and wait for all the ice to defrost. Clean up your fridge well and then check inside of the freezer compartment for break in wiring, failure of the heater or the thermostat. Now put the fridge on and see if the cooling comes back.If the set works ok then dont worry till you experience the same fault coming back. In this case your auto defrost timer could be faulty as it is not doing the 8 hours cycle defrosting. Check this out test and replace . Get help if you are not familiar. good day

Amana bottom freezer problem


It sounds like the condenser coil might be freezing up. This happened to me on my bottom freezer. The cooling part of your fridge is only in the back of the freezer compartment. The cold air from the freezer blows up through a vent in the back to the fridge and comes out at the top. If the coils do not defrost (which is what happened with mine) the air flow is blocked by the ice and can't get to the fridge compartment. Your freezer will still be cold but your fridge won't. If you pull the plug on it and time things right you can defrost the coils but this will only postpone the problem. Both will work for awhile again until the coils ice up again. You can also pull out the freezer drawere and try to defrost the coil with a blow dryer. You have to disconnect the icemaker and pull out the back panel behind the freezer to get to it though.

Amana ABB1922 refrigerator - refrigerator not cooling


Check fan for operation and vent duct for ice or the damper sticking between the two compartments. It does not take much when the freezer is on bottom, colder air (because heavier) remains there without proper circulation. I will be trying to find the maintenance /service manual to help resolve this. JT

Amana ARB1917CSR ? Refrigerator freezing food, (bottom) freezer working OK


I picked up on something you wrote within your problem description. "got the thermostat replaced under warranty" & "that worked for a while ". back in Aug of 2002. It's August of 2008 and your thermostat may have failed again. 6 years later... not so unusual. Anyway, since your fridge has a bottom freezer, there must be a pass thru between the freezer and the fridge compartment in an area you haven't examined yet. The fridge gets cold air delivered from the freezer to keep it cold thru this pass thru and many fridges have an adjustable flap that allows you to limit that cold air flow. Time permitting, can you do a more thorough examination of the fridge area ( side walls near crisper drawers perhaps?) or better than that, remove the drawers and look for that air duct pass thru. Once located, if it does not have an adjustable damper, try a little duct tape to limit the amount of cold air from migrating into the fridge compartment. Other options: Can you contact Amana customer support directly and get their support? That particular model has been discontinued by Amana but they should be able to support it. Not sure I added anything to what you already know. Gave it a shot thou...

FRIDGE FREEZER BUT FRIDGE STOPPED WORKING FREEZER WORKING OK


look on the back wall of the freezer is there snow? if so you have a defrost component out (timer, limit, or heater) the fresh food compartment gets cool air from the freezer so check for blocked air pathways the build up of frost in the freezer stops air flow so you will be cold on freezer side and warm on ref side
