Geezer, sounds like a defrost issue. I usually find the bi-metal to be the culprit on this model. Check out the pic. You will have to remove the back panel in the freezer and defrost the evaporator. Remove the ice maker if there is one. The back cover has 4 quarter inch screws. remove those. The air vent has 2 plastic clips one each side and one on the bottom, push in and pull the grill off. The thermistor cover has a slot for a flat blade screw driver,push in and pull the cover off. The thermistor will now slide behind the back panel. Check the bi-metal for buldging. As long as the evaporator fan is working, it's probably a defrost problem.

Check the damper in the top back of the fresh food section. make sure that it is open and air is coming through it.

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    Lite bulb in freezer not working, put a new bulb in still not working


    Unplug it.

    There is usually a switch that gets frozen in the closed (door) position.

    Try looking in the freezer, front and center, ceiling area.

    If the switch moves easily, then it could be the socket.

    If it is iced up, wipe it with a warm wet cloth in the same direction that the door opens and closes to get it to spring back.

    Plug it back in.

    If that doesn't help post a model # and I'll continue the walk through.

    How do I replace my freezer light


    An owners manual I found online says:
    Freezer
    1. Pinch rear tabs on light cover and pull straight down.
    2. Remove light bulb.
    3. Replace bulb with appliance bulb no greater than 40 watts.
    4. Insert front tabs of light cover into freezer liner and snap rear portion over light assembly until rear tabs engage.
    ---
    The manual illustrates the bulb is behind a plastic grille right by the temperature control knob.

    My amana refrigerator is not cooling, freezer is working


    Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

    Top doesn't get cold. Freezer is cold, no air comng up into top.


    Has the unit been moved recently? If so, seek out to locate a blockage of the refrigerant line (i.e. it might have been pinched off). Alternatively it could be the fan blower (if so equipped).

    How to take the front grill off?


    the grill should just snap off with a pull, evenly from both sides. If coils can be accessed from the front, there are no more coils in the back. The screwed on cardboard in the back is covering a fan so it can pull air directly over the compressor and evaporate the water in the drain pan. You should periodically check to see if water is draining into the pan, if not, the evaporator may be getting heavy ice build up, therefor not cooling 100%
