Question about Amana DRSE663B Side by Side Refrigerator
Most modern freezers don't need to be defrosted, but should be washed out and cleaned periodically. Following are steps for defrosting freezers that need it -generally when ice builds up to a thickness between 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch.
Things You’ll Need:
1. Turn the freezer off. Controls may be inside the refrigerator.
2. Remove all food from the freezer and store in an ice chest while you are defrosting.
3. Remove ice in the freezer compartment. This can be done by: a) letting the freezer door stand open until ice melts; b) putting a pan of hot water in the freezer compartment and closing the door, then checking for melting ice and reheating the water every 10 to 15 minutes; c) using a hair dryer by aiming warm air at ice in freezer until it melts.
4. Pick up ice and water as it melts with a dishcloth or sponge and deposit into sink.
5. Use a sponge or dishcloth and a bowl of warm water to thoroughly wipe out inside of freezer once the freezer is cleared of ice.
6. Turn the freezer back on, close the door and let run for 10 to 15 minutes before returning food to the freezer.
7. Put food back into freezer and close the door.

First, your heater is good
second, the timer is located at the control panel, look for a small hole at the control panel, put everything back together wait it to get cold and with a screw drive turn it slow until you hear a click and stop wait few minutes and look to see if your heater get hot if not, replace your ref thermostat
third its is not a thermostat , its a sensor and you don't gonna be able to test

From the sounds of it, you have too much moisture in the freezer.
Is the door closing and sealing all of the way or is there a leak anywhere else?
You need to keep defrosting it and drying it out and if the ice build up continues then there must be a leak or the door is being left open too long or something along these lines.
Let me know what you think about what I said and please let me know if you have further concerns or questions for me. thanks
