Question about Amana ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I am sure by now that things are already pretty warm. There are a few possibilities here that can cause your symptom
1. The defrost cycle never terminated. This is controlled by the 60 deg F thermostat in the evaporator area. If the thermostat has failed it will not allow the defrot cycle to terminate when 60 deg F has been reaches. I.e the unit will sit there dead but the interior lights will work.
It is item 31 of this link but not shown on the diagram:

I am sorry but there really is not a fast fix for this. What you can do is place a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for 2 hours. (Makes a water mess) If the defrost cycle terminates when you plug it in after the manual defrost then the defrost heater can be defective. The heater is Item 15 of this link:

It would be difficult to say exactly what is causing your current failure. All I can say is what will cause it. I can not say change part "____" because I have not proved with out a doubt what part has failed.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
