Initially, have you tried setting the Amana ARB190RCC into a defrost cycle. This could be done by adjusting the defrost timer. This is located in the refrigerator section of the the Amana ARB190RCC. it would be on the ceiling, right in front between 2 light bulbs. You may need to use a flathead screwdriver to turn it clockwise till the refrigerator stops running. This should be done when the frost buildup is as you feel would need defrosting.
Pls wait for about 5 minutes to verify that the defrost heater powers up. The defrost heater is located below the evaporator coil in your freezer. In the event that the defrost heater fails to power up, then this could be indicative that the defrost thermostat has failed and therefore would needs looking into or even replacement.
Incidentally, you could use a continuity tester (DVM or VOM) to check the defrost thermostat that is with refrigerator unplugged from the mains. There are some reported common issues on failures of the defrost thermostat.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
