Your Questions About Amana Refrigerator Repair

Lisa asks…

Have a bottom freezer amana and oil seems to be dripping out of the bottom. It is clear. What can I do?

I do not have the model number as it is a friend of mine. She says that oil is dripping from the door and has placed a paper towel on the floor and it is covered with clear oil. I am puzzled.

James Conley answers:

Refrigerator oil coming from compressor. Most probably it is damaged. Call the repair guy or just buy a new one.

Betty asks…

Amana refrigerator fan in back of fridge stopped working, help???

fan in back or my sbs fridge stopped working, two black wires, acording to wire diagram one goes to PTC/relay, and the other goes to COMP/overload. i tried putting the fan to the multi meter, and the numbers on the digital read out cycle up and down continuously. what does that mean for my fan, is it likely my fan, or the relay or comp that is boken?
yeah i checked ohlms/ continuity on the fan. that is when i got the crazy reading on the digital read out, the numbers go up and down continuously. thanks, i’ll try hard wiring the fan directly to a plug.
i pulled my fan and hard wired it to the outlet, it didn’t want to spin, but if i gave it help it would spin, i broke it open and cleaned it out, oiled it, closed it back up. didn’t make a differents. same results. i just bought a new one, 80$, anyway, i hard wired that one the same way and it spins nice. think i found my problem, will install tonight. thanks for all the help.

James Conley answers:

Have you check the ohms between the two fan wires? Most common problem are the fans stop working.Make sure you clean all fins and dust from around coils .You should be able to remove fan and carefully apply wall circuit 120 voltage to the fan and see if it works if not take the fan to a repair parts depot and they should be able to conform if it is bad or not.While working with live voltage be careful

Nancy asks…

Refrigerator does not produce cold, why?

My frig Amana produces cold in the freezer only. What can I do to spread the cold in other places? A good thing is that the weather is cold now in February. So, I temporarily keep my stuff outside in the balcony. Is there a way I can fix this problem myself? Any advice would be appreciated? Thank you.

James Conley answers:

Start with a good cleaning under the fridge and also, make sure you don’t have a build up of ice anywhere. It would also be a good idea to clean behind the fridge and remove all the dust bunnies from the parts back there.

After you have done this, you should be able to determine if somthing is just disconnected or if you need to call repair.
