Question about Amana Refrigerators
Based on the information you provided you will have 2 scenarios here:
1. If frost is building up on packages or around the front then look for an air intrusion, i.e. something blocking the correct door closure (either door). Bottom basket not pushed in all the way, etc.
2. If frost is on the rear panel where the fan is located, then you would have a failure in the defrost system. Now, either you will find that #1 is the problem, which, at this point, that is what I believe, because of your food status, or you have been super observant and have caught a potential food loss issue in its early stage. Once a failure in the defrost system occurs, it will normally take 1-2 weeks before the unit can no longer absorb heat out of the box, due to excessive frost build up, and the unit will start warming up. Below is a link to a parts breakdown and diagnostics help if you determine that you have a defrost system failure.
If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
