Martin,

What are the exact temperatures in the freezer and in the refrigerator?

Does the fan in the freezer work? If it does can you feel a cold air coming into the refrigerator?

Gene.

...How is cold air sent to the refrigerator compartment : is there a specific fan for this ?...
The fan in the freezer distributing cold air through the freezer and into the fresh food compartment through the damper.

Also there is an air return to provide the proper air circulation. One of possibilities is: this return is blocked somehow. Unfortunately I could not find it on the diagrams. Look for it in the refrigerator.

Gene and Martin, I am having the same problem with my refrig. and it's driving me crazy. The refrig. return air is bottom left but it is not blocked ??? I also think it's a damper control problem but not sure how to fix it. I'm still puzzled by the fact that air does not flow in the refrig. compartment until the freezer dor is opened ???? would this happen if the damper was closed ????

Txs,
-Rich E.

Rich,

Different models work differently. What is the complete model number of your refrigerator?

Default Same problem here tool

I am having the same porblem. One week ago I took the freezer apart to find a lot of frost behind the back cosmetic panel. It was so heavy I could see it through the small vent slits. After being unpluged for a half hour while troubleshooting the frost melted off the fins , I then plugged it back in and the fan in the center top off the freezer started right up blowing the freezer air into the top of the refridge like it was suppose to. I put it back together and it worked for another week. Today is was not cooling the refridge again but the freezer is still working good. Is there a way to test the defrost feature? Since my fan works after the heavy frost clears I dont think the fan in the problem. What do you think? Thanks Tim

Hi Martin,

Sorry for the delay.

Temperature in the freezer looks pretty good, but the refrigerator is too warm. I would probably blame the damper control because with such temperature it should be completely open.

- The damper control Part number: AP4077555

Part number: AP4077555

Default amana model ARB2107

I have a similar problem, freezer working but frig a bit warm. Did notice that very little cold air is coming out of the damper in the frig, but plenty of cold air in the freezer, so the fan is working. I'm thinking the thermo controlled damper is not working, but hoe do you get the cover off to inspect. It looks like there are tabs on the side and bottom, not sure what I need to do to remove wothout braking it. Your help would be appreciated.

thanks

tom
