Question about Amana ABB2224DEW / ABB2224DEQ / ABB2224DEB Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I have an Amana BR18* fridge with bottom freezer. The freezer is not getting cold enough to really freeze items. The freezer temp control seems to do nothing. The fridge works fine. I have replaced the defrost thermostat in the freezer and this did not fix the issue. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Ice build up in freezer
Defrost system failure.
Defrost timer, heater, therma disk, any one could be bad.
You could manually defrost and this would get the Ref back to working for a couple of days before it iced up again. Remember there is a lot of ice build up on the cooling coils in the freezer that you can't see so, a little extra time with a hair dryer is needed to do a complete manual defrost.

Almost certainly, you have a leak within the freezer compartment.
The cooling system will use a divertor valve to concentrate coolant to the fridge or freezer compartment - whichever is necessary to maintain selected temperatures.
If a seal within either compartment is compromised and leaks then the coolant will be excessively diverted to that area in an attempt to lower it's temperature - the other section will suffer since more coolant is diverted to the weaker area; the weaker area that is being excessively cooled will also have more moist air circulating, hence moisture will contribute to a build up of ice - exacerbating the problem.
Ensure that both fridge and freezer doors are closing properly, if they appear to be secure then also check that the seals are airtight - there should be no ice accumulating around them.
You might need to re-align the doors, or less likely, replace the door seals.
