Question about Amana Refrigerators
Amana side by side refrigerator has stopped cooling, we are cleaning the underneath and condensor coils, what else can we do? This refrigerator was purchased new in 2005. The condenser was replaced almost immediately, there was a factory problem with them. No problems with it since then (this was summer 2006) until now.

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.

SOURCE: Amana not cooling
Take the back cover off and look at the frost. If the frost is only at the bottom of the coils then you are low on R-12 or R-134 and the defrost t-stat is cutting out to quick. If the coils are well frosted then you have a bad t-stat.

amana is having some problems with their compressors locking up. if the compressor is manuactured by tecumseh then tthe compressor is mostlikely locked up and will need replacing. good news is your refrig is most likely less than years old and should be in warranty to amana..

You have a sealed system problem. There is either a small leak or a restriction somewhere in the tubing. This isn't something you could've caused so don't worry about that. Unfortunately this isn't something you can fix yourself either. You require a certified refrigeration technician to fix this problem.

I found this problem addressed on applianceblog.com and per they recomended part # 67006166. My repairman ordered this part and it had been superseeded by an even newer version, # 10127429. He installed that newest version in late June 2008 and it has been great ever since. So for me # 10127429 was the answer. Hope this helps
