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.
Please reply if you require further clarification or help.

This is either of three defrost parts. The timer, heater or defrost limit switch. Most amana's I fix have a bad limit switch which is clipped to the freezer coils directly. Spin your defrost timer till it clicks and check the same frost laden wall to see if the frost starts to steam and melt. If not, unplug the fridge, then try disconnecting the limit switch and join those 2 wires together. Replug and see if the heater starts steaming. If it doesn't it is most likely the timer. The heater is usually the last thing to die, unless your heaters are encased in glass. In which case a quick visual inspection for decay and separation will pinpoint the problem.

check the defrost heater in the evaporator compartment at the rear of the freezer for continuity,then check your defrost control if the heater is o.k. be it either an adaptive defrost or a timer type defrost control
