Customer Question
We have an Amana...

We have an Amana French Door refrigerater that is about 13 years old. The freezer has quit and I'm not certain the refrigerater is cooling. Would this be the compressor and are they worth repairing?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Amana is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I believe we purchased in late 2004 or early 2005. I will get the model number. AFD2535DEW

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

NO

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I just want to know if it is worth repairing.

My name is Woody.
I`m sorry to hear that your having issues!
I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.

There are several components that it one fails the unit will not cool,

But to answer your question if the compressor is bad or if the unit has a refrigeration system leak NO it is not worth fixing on a 13 year old product.

You could be looking at approx $500 to as much as $800 for a repair IF the parts are still available .
If you have any questions just reply back to me.
