Default Amana fridge has me stumped
Model Number: SRD2555w   Brand: Amana   Age: More than 10 years

My Amana (modelsrd2555w) side by side fridge recently frosted up. I've had this happen before so I replaced the defrost thermostat. Here's where I'm stumped it the fan runs at first a and cuts off never cutting back on. The coils frost up but not as bad as when the defrost thermostat is out. The bottom of the freezer is cold but it's not cold enough to make ice. I'm thinking it's the fan motor but I'm not sure. I don't know how to tell if new defrost thermostat is bad or if it's just the fan. What do I do?

I would pull the evaporator motor and plug it in the wall outlet to see if it runs. Post results.Make sure it is labled 115 volts.

The fan I'm referring to is the internal fan above the coils on the inside of the freezer. It isn't made too plug into the wall.

You can use a "cheater cord" with spade terminals that will plug into the motor.
