I have an Amana BG21VW-P1325001W W refrigerator w/bottom freezer. The unit is not working with the exception of the lights in both compartments. For a period of 24 hours the unit would work if we periodically 'tapped' the thermostat control switch, however this method no longer works. We have replaced the following parts to no avail: thermostat control switch, defrost timer, run capacitor, relay start switch, and overload. Any thoughts on what to try next?

Hi,

I've seen this happen many times on my service calls and a new temperature control thermostat always fixes it.:)

So it has to be a defective one you got, because that's all it can be.:)

Here's the temperature control thermostat for your model:
Temperature Control Thermostat W10752646
