Can you please:

1. Let me know if I should be replacing anything besides the defrost heater and defrost thermostat (I'm not really clear on how to check continuity and would rather just replace the proper parts). I'd rather replace anything recommended as opposed to running into this problem again; and
2. Confirm the proper part numbers for the defrost heater, defrost thermostat, and any other part I need?

Thanks!
If you would like to save some $$$ then it's better to check these parts for continuity. You will need a simple ohmmeter. The following article on our forum will explain in detail how to run a continuity test using either an analog meter or a digital meter - How To Check Continuity With Ohmmeter.

Otherwise you have to order all three parts.

- The defrost timer Part number: AP4077325

Part number: AP4077325



- The defrost heater Part number: AP4078863

Part number: AP4078863



- The defrost thermostat Part number: AP4009073

Part number: AP4009073



Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for AMANA ARB9059CS REF - BOTTOM MOUNTS | AppliancePartsPros.com

The most reliable way to test the thermistor is to remove it from the refrigerator by cutting off the wires far enough to splice it back later and placing the thermistor in iced water for about 10 minutes. The normal reading in such situation should be about 16 Kohms.

Thanks, Gene. If I didn't hear the sizzling sound when I adjusted the defrost timer with the screwdriver, is it safe to assume that it doesn't need to be replaced?

Hi Gene,
I going to replace my defrost heater on my Amana refrig. I have the new part; however, I'm having a hard time seeing how I install it. Do I need to remove the evaporator in order to replace the defrost heater? If so, how. If not, then how do I get the defrost heater in without some serious bending?

I have a Whirlpool Gold GC3NHAXV01. Has a constant beep and the fridge temp has risen to about 65. I have replaced the evap fan motor and defrost thermostat then noticed the damper was not opening to the fridge. I opened up the damper and the motor closed it back and still beeping. I unplugged the damper motor and the beeping quit. Is it the damper motor or the controller board?

** Just noticed the evap fan runs a couple of minutes, cycles off and beeps then starts back.

*** It ran all night. Freezer is -2 and Fridge is 49. I don't feel it blowing anymore but still getting the beep. Now the frequency is about every 30 seconds.

Run the Service Diagnostics mode as described in the attached Tech sheet and post the results.

In the model number you posted you missed one letter between "V" & "0".

Hi Gene,

I seem to be having the same problem as many others seem to. The freezer works fine but the refrigerator doesn't. We have a Kenmore side by side Model #253.53713300.

We discovered that if we tap on the Temperture Control box - the fans starts up and the refrigerator cools back down to 30 degrees in about 15 minutes but then shuts off until we tap it again. Without tapping it - it's around 50 degrees. We have both the freezer & Refrigerator set at the highest settings in hopes of keeping the food at least somewhat cooled in the refrigerator. It seems the place we need to tap is on the Fresh Food dial. Any idea of which component we should try to replace first?

Thanks!!
