My refrigerator starts to get warm and then my freezer back wall turns into a wall of frost. From reading other posts I figured out that I could unplug my refrigerator for a few days to let it thaw out....

Good day,
Your on the right track. The defrost system has failed. It is made up of 3 components. The main defrost heater, mounted to the bottom of the cooling coil behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment, the defrost thermostat which is a small round disk with 2 wires coming out of it located in the same area clipped to the top of the coil, and lastly, the timer which is located in the food compartment, on the roof behind and to the rear of the controls.

To test the timer, (there is a small hole to stick a screw driver into it) turn the shaft clockwise until the machine turns off. Wait 45 minutes. If the machine comes back on, the timer is O.K. Replace the defrost thermostat. If not replace the timer.
It is possible the main heater has failed, but it is a rare occurrence.

Amana DRB2201CW refrigerator does not get cold

You may have an obstruction in the air vent from the freezer compartment to the frig .there should be an airflow adjustment next to the thermostat. Middle setting is recommended. Since you say the freezer is working properly, I cannot see any other possibility. hope this helps.

I have an Amana refrigerator with a bottom freezer. Frequently we have to tap on the freezer control switch to start the refrigerator back up. It's getting bad and today the ice cubes were all melted until...

If ice cubes are melting you will need help. That is not normal. It's common for any thermostat to seem to stick until its time to come on. Now if there is a big difference the controls need to be changed. You should maintain 0 f. degrees in freezer and 37 to 42 in the fresh food section. Anything above that is because of other reasons for example the door is opened a lot during day or warm items are placed inside to cool. When this happens it will stay on until the heat is removed. Now if you need help on this let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The humming noise is the compressor cycling on the overload protector. By the posted date I would think that you already replaced the refrigerator.
