We have a side by side refrig/freezer. I think it's an Amana SX25. This morning the top half of the freezer stopped working. The top half of the fridge portion may have also stopped working - it doesn't seem as cold as it usually is - but I'm not sure. The light is still on but it is not cold enough to freeze ice up there. The bottom half is very cold. Any thoughts as to what is causing this? Thanks!

** I think it's an Amana SX25 **

That doesn't look like a model number, at least not a complete one. You can find tips on where to locate the complete model number on your appliances at the following link:

** the top half of the freezer stopped working. **

All the air in the whole freezer compartment should be the same. The only way I can see part of it being a substantially different temperature is if the air is no longer moving. There should be a fan in the freezer section which should run whenever the compressor at the back is. If it isn't, someone would need to investigate why.

BTW. Without that evaporator (freezer) fan running, the *whole* fridge section will stop cooling too, in pretty short order.
