Refrigerator stopped working, only fan works - Amana ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator


Answers :

Three scenarios come to mind.. 1) The compressor may be "done" or 2) the refrigerant has leaked out. Either way, not good news. But, it may also be 3) a "stuck" defrost timer. These are simple little clock motors that that run whenever the freezer coil is below a certain temperature. After 8 - 12 hours at a low temperature, the power is switched away from the thermostat and directed to a defrost coil located in the freezer coil compartment (usually protected behind a panel in the back of the freezer). When powered, it allows the heater to melt frost off of the coil and collect in the drip pan under the fridge. If the defrost circuit didn't run, the coil would quickly clog with ice and no cooling would occur - but the compressor would run until the defrost timer kicked in again. The timer is not heavy duty - and could be stuck in the defrost setting - preventing the compressor from running. You could press your hand against the back of the freezer and feel for heat - if found, that is likely your problem. It is also possible that the heating element has failed too, in which case no heat would be felt. Replacing the defective parts isn't brain surgery - but maybe more than a DIY project due to hazardous voltage levels (120VAC) and possible exposure to freon if the coil were to become damaged.

I have a crosley conservator refrigerator, it says "twist air" on the bottom of the freezer door, and while the freezer works ok, the fan in the back of the freezer has seemed to have stopped working, like 3 days ago, and the refrigerator area wont' cool any longer. Of course, I opened the freezer door and pushed the button to see if the fan would come on, and it would not. So, the first thing I did, even though there was really no ice build-up at all, was to completely turn it off and defrost i

I have an Amana bottom freezer fridge model ARB2517CSR the freezer stopped working I cleaned the coils and the fan was working and the fridge was making a buzzing sound. The sound stopped, so did the fan and it hasn's started since. Been an hour. The compressor seems really hot.
