I have an Amana side by side refridgerator. The fridge side is not cooling, the freezer side is still a little cold but not cold enough. I see frost in the back of the freezer at the vents, but no air flowing. It seems that the fan is not blowing air at all. The compressor seems to be fine, the evaporator fan is running in the back and the thermostat switches seem to be working (when I turn it off, it turns off the evaporator fan in the back). Any ideas?

For the last 2 weeks I've been hearing a clicking noise for about 10-15 sec. with my Amana AFD2535DES fridge. Suddenly, everything stopped cooling meaning both the fridge and refrigerator portion. After reading on this help board, I changed out the relay/overload capacitor and it started working great. Then the noise starting coming back, not nearly as often and the compressor is getting very hot, but the unit still works (I unplug it at night for an hour or two and let the compressor cool off).

Subzero 700 TR Refridgerator Door Works fine; however, the drawers do not cool. Condensor seems to work. Inside fan seems to work. Inside coils are not cold (which I think is the problem). Not sure if it is meaningful that the door cools and the drawers do not since it looks like the door and the drawer share compressor and outside coils? I appreciate any advice you can provide.

The kegerator will not get cold. It seems to cool slightly but it wont get cold any longer. It does sounds like the compressor is working .. i hear it turn on and off as it did when it was working correctly. I was having issues prior to this with it freezing the keg so i'd been messing with the temperature gage quite a bit. Also, before it quit working, i moved it from a hard surface to a carpeted surface ... not sure if that would have anything to do with it. Any suggestions would be appreciate

I have had my Frigidaire FRS26ZRG for 10 years. Last week it stopped working. I had it repaired about 5 years ago and I don't really want to put too much more money into it. I would like to know if the compressor is going bad or could it be something simple. The refrigerator side is not getting cold at all. The freezer is not working properly but you can feel some cool air but not cold enough to keep food. Any suggestions?

5 year old Amana bottom freezer. No cooling because compressor not working. Technician tried a starter but it short circuited. Now fridge is off. Worth buying new compressor or a new frig? Is this a typical Amana frig problem or a nowadays frig problem? What's the best model of frig to buy ie. most reliable.  Is it worth buying an older, 2nd hand frig for long life?


You can have the compressor replaced for around 500usd on the norm. that would be the most inexpensive way to go compared to a new unit , it will come with a 90 day-1 year warranty.\015\012Phil ... GE GTH18KBR Top Freezer Refrigerator

Our refrigerator is not cooling. It has power and is running but there is no cold air being produced in the refrigerator or the freezer. Could this be the compressor?

After a couple more days it started making the clicking sound again and stopped working. We've been thru about 4 of these cycles now over the past couple of weeks.

... Amana ARB8057CSL Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Our Whirlpool refrigerator (ED0GTQ) is cooling and freezing somewhat on the bottom, but it doesn't seem to be circulating the cold air to the top. The icemaker won't work because it is too warm at the top and anything on the top shelf on the refrigerator side is staying warm. When we checked the fan and compressor, they are both working. (We located it at the back bottom of the fridge) Is there another fan at the top that may not be working? Any suggestions?
