So this is apparently an Amana. Has anybody got a tech sheet for this thing? Nothing found behind kick plate.

The freezer is doing good. The FF section is room temp.

Right away I'm thinking damper, but I have not yet begun to test. A tech sheet to tell how get into diagnostics mode would be super duper.

This is a pretty typical unit so this techsheet should work for you
When looking behind kickplate you may not see the sheet caus it is stuck up to the underside in a plastic jacket, you gotta get your eyeballs right down on the floor to see it, cut the pouch and remove (don't forget to put it back)

Damper failures are pretty common on these

They have a kit out that is an upgraded design, comes with new styrofoam cover/harness etc. - though R/C is calling it a "thermostat" the kit is here

Did you pull the evaporator cover to see if you have a defrost issue? I've seen more than my share of no defrost issues on these.

Also, check the return air ducts in the lower right and left corners of the bottom of the beer compartment. When you closed the freezer door or drawer forcefully you should feel a puff of air from the slotted openings in the bottom of the fridge. If not, you need to defrost them, or the cold air wont circulate.

While gathering data the machine returned itself to normal service.
