The first thing to check on your model is the defrost timer found inside the fresh food section and behind the control panel where you adjust the temperatures. Look for a small opening about the size of a pencil. Most times the hole is covered by a plastic plug and all you need to do is pull the plug out and with a flathead screwdriver turn the timer clockwise slowly until you hear the compressor stop. It should remain off up to 25 minutes and come back on itself. If not turn again slowly clockwise until the compressor restarts. During the time the compressor is off you should be able to open the freezer door and hear sizzling and crackling. That would be defrost taking place. I have some photos and locations I will place here next to help guide you on this, Sea Breeze

I have an amana br22 the botom freezer gets an ice block on the radiator coils then air flow slows down to top section i have to hot air gun the freezer to get the air to start moving


The ice block is due to a defrost circuit failure. Typical problems are due to the defrost heater, defrost timer if used on this model and defrost thermostat. Since you are using a heat gun to melt the ice, check the the defrost heater with a meter to determine whether it needs to be replaced.

Freezer will not defrost on its own GSL25JFPE


Most likely, the defrost system has failed. There are three components: a defrost timer, a defrost heater, and a defrost bi-metal.
I would have suggest replace your defrost heater.

Freezer


If the freezer is in defrost then the freezer fan should be off. Only on the electronic will the freezer fan come on in defrost but the freezer door has to be held open for 3 min before the fan comes on
