AMANA refrigerator-freezer
model ARB 2107 AW
bottom freezer
7 years old

The freezer is not cold enough to freeze.

The condenser coils are clean
The evaporator and condenser fans are working
The compressor works
The evaporator is not frosted solid
The bi-metal / defrost thermostat tests OK
The defrost timer tests OK

The freezer temperature control tests OK (meter needle sweeps to 0)

Could the freezer temperature control still be defective (not reacting to the correct temperature?)

You could bypass the cold control to see if it works then.

But one thing you didn't mention-- observe the frost pattern on the evaporator. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Default checking frost pattern

Thank you for your reply!
I will check the frost pattern. No-one has ever mentioned that. If that looks normal, how do I bypass the cold control? Do I remove the control and link the two leads?

I replaced the cold control even though it tested ok. After about 24 hours to allow for the temperature to stabilize, the freezer was freezing normally.
