    Question Amana side by side ASD2522WRB04

    Hello, I have an Amana side by side. I bought it used about 6 weeks ago. After about 3 weeks I noticed the fridge was not cooling. Opened the freezer, took the panel off and all the coils were completely frozen over. An a/c guy came by and said it was the thermostat.
    So I ordered and replaced it about 2 weeks ago. Now the same thing has happened so last night I had to blow dry all the coils again. Today, I replaced the defrost control board. I tried to troubleshoot on another website and thats what it said to do. The back of the fridge is clean and pulled away from the wall. The underneath is clean as well.

    I felt up around the vent and it doesn't feel like much cold air is coming into the fridge side from the freezer. The fan in the freezer is running. ( I didn't replace the panel in there bc I wanted to keep an eye on the coils for a few days.) I just have a gut feeling that something else is wrong. How long should it take to cool down? I read 24 hours but like I said it doesn't feel as if there is much cool air coming in the vent at the top left between the fridge and freezer.

    Please bear with me and be patient as I work on teeth all day and fridge repair is all new to me. However, I'm not about to keep paying this guy $75 to come out and replace parts that I can do from youtube videos

    Thanks Michelle.

    Hi,

    I know my first mistake was buying a used fridge
    We sell used refrigerators....didn't it come with a warranty?...we warranty ours for 90 days...or did you buy it from a private person sale?

    I felt up around the vent and it doesn't feel like much cold air is coming into the fridge side from the freezer. The fan in the freezer is running. ( I didn't replace the panel in there bc I wanted to keep an eye on the coils for a few days.) I just have a gut feeling that something else is wrong. How long should it take to cool down? I read 24 hours but like I said it doesn't feel as if there is much cool air coming in the vent at the top left between the fridge and freezer.
    At least place the panel in it's proper spot to help with air flow.
    Should take approx 4-6 hours to get back to temp and 24 hours before getting into an on and off routine.
    Might be frost in the air return vents or in the air blowing vent that is blocking air flow and we cannot see these...might be a good idea to allow a 12-24 hours defrost with the doors open and then fire the unit back up and retest the temps.

    Did/does the defrost heater work? See below for tech sheet with testing for defrost issues...

    Hi Jeff,
    Thank you for responding. Idk how to quote all the replies.
    Bought it from a private seller.
    This morning I checked and the temp had only dropped about 10 degrees.
    The guy tested the heater with a little hand machine and said it was fine. However, he didn't take the heater out (as I've seen on DIY videos)
    It's been running non stop. Before I left this morning I turned it as far as it would go to cool. Of course all this happens the day after I filled up with groceries.
    I have no idea how to read the wiring diagram
    I was going to take it apart after and try to test the heater and the new thermostat I put in. Maybe I did something wrong when replacing the thermostat?
    Luckily my sister works at an appliance parts store so I get the parts pretty cheap. I just don't wanna keep replacing parts and still have the same issue.

    Has a section on Steps to enter electronic defrost control test mode.

    Can be tested for continuity without taking it out.

    Crap

    Manual defrost still sounds like a good plan to me....is there any other place to keep your stuff?

    You don't have to remove the heater to test it, just isolate the ends ( wires disconnected ).
