check your schematic, most Amanas are built with the power for evap. fan running through the defrost thermostat (known problem with Amanas) as well as the defrost heater. with that being said your temps are not cold enough as well and Amana's are also notorious for sealed system leaks in the evaporator....better off scrapping this one and buying a new frige in my opinion.

if the leak was in the Evap. yes, however it may not be the evap, it might be in the yoder loop which you cant see (inside the liner of the frige) or in the condensor coils.

Hey guys, another question... the tech that was here the other day said this thing when properly operating, should show about 5 psi on the low side. I may have missed it in the tech manual I printed off from this thread, but can someone confirm whether or not he was right?

Thanks
