Thread: Amana fridge no longer cools

    Amana fridge no longer cools

    Model Number: ARS9169AS
    Brand: Amana
    Age: 1-5 years

    Model is a Amana ARS9169AS side by side fridge.(http://www.homeportfolio.com/catalog...l?prodId=43708) So it stopped cooling in the freezer. I kept hearing a clicking every 1 min and I could tell it was coming from the overload relay. I bought new parts (overload relay and starter relay). Still doing the same thing. I can hear and feel the compressor start, but after about 30 sec, the click happens and it turns off.I am reading the same voltage at the relays at 110. The internal fans that circulate the cold air do not work either. The compressor fan does stay on all the time, unless the defrost mode is triggered. I turned the defrost mode and it seems to be turning and working so I do not think it is this. Any other ideas? or is it time for a new fridge?

    It sounds like it might be time for a new fridge. From what you described it sounds like the compressor is locked up and not starting. Replacing the compressor would have to be done by a professional and would not be a cheap repair.
