SOURCE: fan for amana fridge

Not sure of the description of the fault. If you are saying that the internal fan will not run but that you have put a power supply to it and it has run, it could be a number of possibilities... You described moving the cabinet. It is highly possible that a pipe or part of the refrigeration system has been damaged in the move and caused a loss of gas. If you remove the back panel to expose the evaporator (cold coil), and turn the system on, after 5 to 10 mins you should see a frost build up over the whole of the coil. If you dont then you probably have a leak. Result call a fridge guy. Leaks can vary in cost and is entirely dependent on where the leak is located and how long it takes to find it. If it does freeze the whole coil then you may well have a problem with the defrost heater or defrost thermostat. Both of which need to be intact in order to provide a neutral supply to the fan motor. You can (IF COMPETENT) check that you have resistance across both of these elements. If you have an open circuit on either then that is your problem. (PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE DEFROST THERMOSTAT HAS TO BE BELOW 0'C IN ORDER TO HAVE ZERO RESISTANCE ACROSS IT...I.E. COIL COLD). Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: Compressor and Compressor Fan Not Working

Rotate the dial on the defrost thermostat, a big click is when it goes into defrost, a little more and it should turn the compressor back on. By overload protector, do you mean the one under the compressor cover?

SOURCE: Amana ABB222DE is the overload/capacitor the same

I have been doing refrigeration for over 30 years and I have never seen a compressor with a chip inside of it. Have you tried cleaning the condensor coils? I almost sounds like you have a weak start capacitor. Let me know if i can help you any futher.

Refrigerator does not cool. Freezer does not Freeze. Motor works. Fan Works. Timer works.


Are you sure the compressor is running. Are you going by sound, feel, amp draw. The fans can make you think that the compressor is running in reality it is not. Only way to tell is remove the back at the bottom and touch the compressor to see if the vibration is felt. If not the compressor is not running and you will need new overload relays which is a fairly inexpensive repair.

Fridge acts like compressor is not coming on - Maytag wide by side - seven yrs. old


Pull the refrig out and remove the back panel . You should see the compressor and the cooling fan ( condenser fan ) . If the fan isn't working , it needs to be replaced . If the compressor isn't running or starts then cuts off , then the box plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 3 wires going to it ( overload/relay ) needs to be replaced .

Freezer is defrosting and refrigirator is not cooling


If the compressor and the fan work , probably the unit is laeking freon, but if the condenser fan doesn't work ,the compressor will go of on overload, also the problem could be with the compressor relay.

Fridge/freezer warm, water puddling underneath


Hi, clicking sound from compressor, means compressor not running (working) compressor overlay relay is what making that clicking sound, possible your compressor have a hard start, you can purchase compressor ( hard start kit ) from appliance store, your fans could be working, but compressor short cycling, you said fan not working? which one inside of ref, or one near to compressor, check fan, remove 2 wires from fan terminal, use ohm tester, place tester lead one on each fan terminal, if you get a beep sound (continuity) fan is o/k, if not, fan burnt out, replace fan, now if compressor is good, fans are good, then check or replace, defrost timer, but before doing any repairs, unplug ref, excessive water is because ref defrosting, because there's no refrigeration, remove your produce, leave ref. off for about an hour, then replug it, let it work for about another hour, then check to see if temp. dropping (colder) maybe you experiencing, low voltage, let me know what happened, then i can tell you exactly, what's the problem. good luck.

Blowing hot air, compressor not kicking on, just fan ? ?


are you speaking of the outside fan or inside? compressor should be a little warm but not boiling hot. the unit could be low on freon. if low it will run a while but the compressor will overheat and shut off leaving the fan running by itself ouside. if nothing outside is running check power. if you have power check the contacted outside to make sure it's pulled in. contacters are bad about going out on goodman untis. Also ants can get under contacts.

A/c unit not working


So only fan is running, the compressor not running okay check the voltage going to the compressor. The connection is coming from Thermostat or temperature controller, if there is supply going to A/c Comp. check the safety thermostat relay above the compressor.
