Question about Amana ASD2622HRQ Side by Side Refrigerator
You are most likely looking at a serious FROST blockage...
FIRST thing to check... YOUR DEFROST pan...
If dry... you have found your TROUBLE..
A serious FROST blockage can be caused by SEVERAL
air intrusion issues... Ice cube stuck: holding chute door open... or a pizza box holding any door ajar... Perhaps even a failed (or poorly aligned) DOOR GASKET...
(all these will be burdening your defrost pan: lots of water)
FINALLY... and very common
A DEFROST CIRCUIT FAILURE.
(this will be manifested by a DRY defrost pan)
Easiest... Part to check & change
Your REFRIGERATOR has a defrost timer...
Check here for replacement part (wp67001036)
and INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO...
In addition to their instructions.. I always SUGGEST
you should take pictures and notes of what COLOR
wire goes where... BEFORE getting in trouble...!!
There are only 2 (two) other parts to the defrost circuit...
EASY once you understand...
- Thermal switch to keep defrost temperature v-low
- heater element (ungoverned can ruin food/plastic).
Hope this helps... ELSE comment me
back BEFORE getting in trouble.
Pricewise (using part number) also check eBay

If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.

sounds like you have a restriction in your filter drier. or you could be low on freon. both sealed system issues. you need an appliance tech to check your cooling system

SOURCE: Fridge not cooling...
This sounds like a problem with the defrost circuit. It is likely that
the evaporator coil is clogged with ice due to the defrost heater not
functioning. This can be caused by a failure of any one or more of the
1) Defrost timer. Defrost timer may be "stuck" - failing to advance from a cooling cycle to a defrost cycle. May be found in the toe space of many fridges, but not all.
2) Defrost terminator. This is a thermal sensor that is secured to the refrigerant line close to the evaporator coil in / behind the freezer compartment. If this component fails to detect a rising temperature, it never allows the fridge to return to the cooling mode again.
3) Defroster Heating coil. This is a simple, relatively low wattage heater secured to or near the evaporator coil. It is powered through the defrost timer and shut off by the defrost terminator. If the coil is burned out or otherwise "open", it will not heat to melt ice buildup on the evaporator coil.
4) Fan. The fan is located near the evaporator coil. if the fan is unable move air from the freezer to the fridge, the compressor runs endlessly because cold air is not blown into the fridge compartment - where the thermostat is detecting a high temperature.
5) Condenser coil. If the condenser has a "furry jacket" it's long overdue for a cleaning. Gently vacuum lint / dust / dirt collected on the coil to increase efficiency. This is probably not the problem - but it probably needs to be done anyway.
Most of these steps will require hand tools, schematics (specific to your model), electrical test equipment, etc. Be careful to not use sharp instruments that may puncture refrigerant lines or electrical insulation. Allow the ice to defrost with the fridge powered off with the freezer door opened, and a pot of hot water inside, hair dryer directed at the coil, etc. Access to the evaporator coil is usually from the freezer compartment (back wall) and will require removal of any ice maker installed.

Testimonial: "sorry, no fan in freezer... so only 2 "
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.
