Hi, I have an Amana. The model number is sqd26ve. Everything works but the evaporator fan doesn't come on. I have checked it and its good. What do I need to fix this problem? Thanks!
ANSWER Hello James,
The wiring configuration is a bit different on the Amana units in the sense that the evaporator cannot operate until the defrost thermostat [R0161088] is satisfied. If you bypass the defrost thermostat and the evaporator fan runs, the defrost thermostat is either bad, or it hasn't gotten cold enough to close. As long as the unit is cooling properly, when the new part is installed, it takes from 7 to 10 minutes for the cold coils to get cold enough for the fan to be energized.
