Question about Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
The freezer is accumulating frost. i have defrosted the freezer and it continues to build up
Some models like yours came with a defrost control board and others came with a defrost timer. They should be found inside the fresh food compartment and behind the temperature control panel. You will need to inspect and let me know which you have. Unplug first. If the control board looks or does not look burned it could be bad. The timer can be turned clockwise until compressor stops and should remain stopped for about 25 minutes. and then turn itself back on. If these look good then we need to remove the rear panel inside the freezer and test the defrost element with one wire disconnected to check for continuity. Just to be sure the element has not burned out. The defrost thermostat is connected to the defrost element and will have open contacts inside it above 50 degrees. Do these test with power unplugged and let me know what you find. Sea Breeze

You have a problem and need to repair it.
Your defrosting effort helped stave off disaster.(loss of food)
A defrost free fridge has a hot heating coil in the freezer section to quickly melt frost accumulated on the cooling coils. That is controlled by a defrost time that turn the heaters on daily. There is also a defrost thermostat to control the temperature of the heat.
One of those has gone kaput.
Kaput means the frost clogs the cooling fins and slowly prevent air movement to the freezer and fridge section. Ice builds up in the coils and prevent air flow. It soon quits cooling either side.
