Amana refrigerator not cooling, what should be done or what should we check to determine the problem?
The purpose of a refrigeration circuit is to move heat from the inside of the cabinet to the outside.
The compressor pumps refrigerant around the circuit and if everything is ok the evaporator is cold and the condenser becomes warm. If the compressor is running but nothing inside or outside is happening either the compressor is defective or the refrigerant has leaked away.
If the condenser is warm or hot but the inside is not cold the defrosting panel might be permanently switched on.

Freezer door won't slide open
A tightly frozen door could take days to unfreeze inside. Try using a hair dryer around the door seal. It will take awhile to unfreeze the door this way but it is quicker than waiting for it to defrost. You may have had an extreme leak. Turn the water off to the freezer and turn the freezer controls off or set to zero. You are in a pickle! This is not going to be a quick fix.

Amana freezer forms ice on the bottom. We have
When you see that ice forms on the bottom of your freezer it is most likely means that the drain hose of the fridge is blocked.
You will need to take the panel inside the freezer off, clear all the ice and pour hot water into the drain hole until you hear the water coming out at the beck where the compressor is located.
The next step would be running a 1/4" hose thru that hole.

I have a Model IC6 bottom freezer fridge.
there's a light or door switch that could be bad,look around and you'll see a switch that the door hits to turn the lights on and off,i've seen people put the bulbs in cross threaded i remove the bulb thread it in and it works try removing the bulb and put it back in again,also if you unplug the machine and stick your finger into the socket there's a metal tab in there that touches the bulb if that is pushed in to far it won't touch the bulb to work bend that out a little and try it again,all there is is the bulb the socket and the switch and the switches are pretty reliable,they're located on the side or up top where the door closes in on the machine
