Question about Amana Freezers
Compressor ...when it runs is niosey and vibrates. When compressor cycles off it make a loud clang. Compressor runs extreamly long time each cycle.
took oveer 24 hrs to bring unit to set temp on thermostat
For the love of God get rid of this death trap.
It could be that it was meant to have a neutral earth, ie the neutral is connected to earth at the substation and house inlet and somehow the live and neutral has become reversed at the plug.
You have seen the case becomes live, this may be happening due to leakage current or a short as you say.
Either way the earth was there for a reason, to stop the case from becoming dangerous and you have removed that protection.
Neither the heater element or motor windings should have continuity to the case, I'd disconnect and check these out individually to isolate the problem and repair it, then put the earth connection back before using the freezer.

when its running how hot are the sides the starting amps are too high and 1.5 running amps ain't bad now the the cut in cut out are too high if you look on the dial that the mid point settings that's where you should have it not on 1 1 is hot set it on the straight line that's where you should do all your testing colder settings go up not down you could be overheating the compressor by making it come on too quick the freezer should be about -10 or so do you see any gaps in the gasket

You have a restriction in the system or a overcharge.
Recover the system.
Replace the filter/drier.
Pull a deep vacuum.
Recharge according to the nameplate charge.

If the compressor is running and there's no cooling, chances are you have a sealed system leak somewhere. Meaning the machine has lost it's refrigerant charge. Pretty much need a set of gages at this point and start checking for potential leaks.

SOURCE: freezer defrost cycle
If the defrost timer sticks in the defrost mode,yes. Normal defrost time is 30 minutes or less depending upon which timer is installed.
If it happens again,locate the defrost timer and turn the dial manually to see if the compressor comes back on. If so,replace the timer.
It is probably on the rear near the compressor. Some are under the front behind the dust guard.
