Thank you for contacting ManageMyLife.com regarding the freezer in your bottom mount Amana refrigerator that is not freezing. I know this can be a frustrating situation and I am happy to help you today. Based off of your description, there are a number of things that could cause the freezer not to cool.

First, check to see if the unit is still cycling off periodically or if it's running all the time. It should be running constantly with warm temps. If it still cycles off, the problem could be with the thermostat and will probably need to be replaced. However, it is possible the compressor could be cycling off on the overload relay. Do you hear any clicking? If so, the relay will need to be replaced. If it's running all the time, it will indicate a problem with the seal system. It could be a restriction, a low charge or the compressor not pumping properly. These are checks a technician will be required to make.

The most likely cause of the freezer to stop freezing is the evaporator coil frosting over. Remove the food from the freezer and see if the evaporator coil is frosted over. You can turn the refrigerator off and melt the frost with a hairdryer. Just be sure not to get it too hot. Do not use a sharp object to remove any frost or ice. The evaporator coil is made from aluminum and is easy to puncture.

If the freezer and refrigerator cool properly after defrosting, I would recommend scheduling service at the following link to have a technician check out the defrost system. Sears Home Services.
