Question about Amana Heating & Cooling
You have a heat pump. It is absolutely normal. Every so often the system will go in to defrost mode where the system actually changes in to cooling so that the outdoor coil will be warm enough to melt the frost. At this time the fan outside will not be running, just the compressor. You may also see some steam coming off of the unit. Don't worry, that is normal too. It's not smoking. Please let me know if this info. was helpful and give me a fixya rating.

Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt. Determine the temperature setting. The refrigerator should be set to temperatures ranging from 34 degrees to 40 degrees, while the freezer should be below 30 degrees. Adjust the temperature setting which will naturally improve the ice buildup that's been caused by the wrong temperature setting.
Move the refrigerator away from the wall. Oftentimes, this simple action is all that is needed because the unit is not getting enough air circulation behind it. Also, some refrigerators have vents underneath the unit, which are easily clogged with debris. Clean these vents and coils.
Remove food and shelving from the refrigerator and freezer portions of the fridge. If ice build up is happening in the freezer, the drain in the freezer may be clogged. With the unit off, remove coverings to expose drain and pour hot water down the drain hole until it comes out into the drain drip pan under the fridge.
Check the condenser coils. The evaporator coils could be causing the problem of ice build up. If this is the case, professional repair is likely needed to replace the motor, thermostat or other problems within the fridge.

Frost is a natural occurrence on the evaporator coils in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator. To prevent frost buildup, a self-defrosting refrigerator warms the coils using a defrost heater several times each day to melt away the frost. This frost melts into water and flows out of the compartment through the drain. If any part of the defrost system is not working properly, the result can be heavy frost buildup that may affect the cooling capacity of the refrigerator.
The defrost timer is a mechanism that tells the defroster how long to run to melt the frost. The limit switch measures the temperature in the freezer and helps to maintain it, while the heater is the key element that melts the frost. Any one of these components could need replacement at a given time, which will result in this over-frosting.
