Just additional clues..(general). The defrost timers (on non-electronic) usually located at the bottom (underneath), have a tendency to fail. (One of mine is in the center, one was on the left side) There are usually about 5 wires connected to it. If it fails while defrosting.. the fridge will warm quickly and stop cooling, if it fails in cooling mode, you will have the icing up problem. (other) A squealing noise is usually a fan motor. -also- (Freon issues)..as freon is lost from a small leak, first the freezer will actually get colder, but the refrigerator section may be too warm (I know it sound stupid). When enough is lost the compressor will get hot and the fridge will not cool.

I have the same problem with the same older model, and have kept the coils clean. I've reached the clockwise limit of the freezer control. I wish the answer were that simple. I'm hoping that the oppressive heat and humidity here (Louisiana) might be a contributing factor, but that might be just a dream, and I'll have to shell out for repairs. Still cheaper than replacing it though.

I had this problem last year. I unplugged the the refrigerator and plugged it in an hour later it worked for a little while then quit over night. I finally called a sears repair they came 2 weeks later it was the motherboard, could have fixed it myself, what a hassle. Thankfully I have a fridge in the basement. Still this is a do it yourself.

Not fixed but I do not want to spend MORE money to find out what's wrong with this AMANA piece of ****. Apparently, from research on the net, the compressor or motor is not strong enough in this unit to actually do the job...but if anyone has any suggestions, I'm happy to hear them...

If it is constantly running, (compressor and the fan inside of freezer) then the thermostat is working, more than likely you have an inefficient compressor or a low charge in the sealed system due to a refrigerant leak. Touch the compressor, is it almost too hot to touch? Do you hear a buzzing and clicking noise every so often? If you can answer that for me, I could better diagnose it
