Yesterday our Amana Model SXD26VW Side by Side Refrigerator Freezer with water and ice through the door stopped working correctly. Ice cream, ice cubes, etc all melted. The refrigerator side was not as cold as it should be. Also, water would not come out of the door dispenser.

Overnight it seemed to miraculously fix itself. Both side were appropriately cold, there was ice in the icemaker,  the water flowed from the door dispenser, the beer can in the fridge felt cold. As the day wore on it it went back to not working.(As I think about it now, several days ago, maybe a week or so, the water dispenser was not working and the freezer seemed to stop being cold. It started working again within several hours.)

I knew that a timer of some sort could be adjusted so I looked around and found a knob behind the toe plate. I turned it clockwise until it clicked to a stop. At this point it seems that it gets somewhat colder but certainly not as cold as it should. The fan in the back bottom runs continuously. I'm tempted to unplug it. I have vacuumed the coil behind the toe plate.

Please let me know what I need to do to repair this.

Thanks in advance.
