Chances are if they are getting cool but not cold-
1) the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running
2) Defrost heater has failed
3) Defrost sensor has failed
4) Defrost timer/refrigerator control has failed.
Check for ice build-up on the back wall of the freezer. If there is ice, unplug or turn the unit off for 6-8 hours with the doors open (put any food in a cooler with ice to maintain). Note water may come out of the refrigerator.
Plug the unit back in or turn it back on, close the doors, and check temperature after a couple of hours of operation. If all OK, you will need to have the above tested, or, if you know how to use a multimeter and can read a schematic/wiring diagram, I can instruct you on how to check the above.

EASY FIX. TAKE ALL FOOD OUT OF FRIDGE AND FREEZER AND STORE IT.
THEN UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE FOR 24HOURS WITH DOORS OPEN.
YOU WILL HAVE TO CLEAN UP ALOT OF WATER. THEN CLEAN THE FRIGE.
WHEN YOU PLUG IT BACK IN IT WILL WORK.
BUT THIS IS JUST A TEMP FIX. IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN IN ABOUT A YEAR OR TWO.
TO GIVE U A MORE PERMANENT FIX WILL TAKE SOME TIME. TRY THIS FIRST.

The fan that should circulate air between the two compartments has failed.
These usually have 'sleeve' bearings which can become sticky and fail to start up without help.
Go to the Sears/parts website and enter your Amana model number; if you are lucky, they will have a line drawing of your model which can aid in finding how to access the fan:
Sears Parts Dept.
They have info for thousands of non-Sears items and most can be ordered via that website as well.
