This answer was rated:

I have 15 year old Amana 27 side by side. The freezer seems to be working perfectly, making ice and keeping everything cold, but the refrigerator is set on the coldest temperature but varies between either being 35 or 42 degrees. We just cleaned the coils. What else can i try.
ok can tell me if there is any frost on the back panel inside the freezer section look real good behind the food? also is the center strip in between the doors hot? let me know, also a model # XXXXX help, thanks Bryan

The model number is XXXXX I checked behind all the food in the freezer and there was no ice or frost, completely dry but cold. The divider between the two compartments (from the back of the compartments to the opening) is cold, when you get to the last 1-2 inches near the opening, it seems to be more like room temperature.

is the fan in the freezer running? can you feel air comming into the fresh food section. let me know,thanks,Bryan

can't tell, I don't hear anything. Where is the fan?
ok sorry I had to step out, the fan is behind the panel in the back of the freezer. you need to remove the panel inside the freezer in the back to get to the fan. take the panel off and check the fan , I'll try to look up diagrams for you, thanks,Bryan

I checked the freezer again and the ran WAS running.

ok , you need to check the vents and returns on this. is there allot of cold air comming through the vent into fresh food compartment? if the fan is running and the freezer is really cold it has to be either an air flow problem or you light inside the fresh food side isnt turning off when you close the door, check these things and get back to me, thanks,Bryan

I'll check.

 

Thanks

I checked the fresh food side and found 2 air ducts, one adjustable air flow to the fresh food bin and one on to the milk on the door. Am I correct in assuming that there is also one inside the control box? I'll have to open that up tonight.

 

 

I pressed the door switch for the light and it went out, I'll let the refrigerator cool the bulb then touch it when i open the door just to make sure it was out.

this it help Bryan till me gets back ,,, freezer working fine but fridge is warm ,, right?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

I think I figured out that the problem is with a store bought thermometer which was on the top shelf. When i moved it down it seems to be much colder. Also the milk is freezing.

 

Thank Byran for all the help.
