SOURCE: Evaporator coils icing up
The time is really fast for the Evaporator to be freezing up like Sparkgap said. A possible solution is that you Defrost heater is burned out. It is usually located at the bottom of the evaporator encased inside a Glass Tube with a wire connected to both ends. If you have already accessed the Evaporator coils look for this heatrer and remove it for examination. What I find is the heater is usually burned in two. You can use a Volt ohm meter to check the resistance across the two connections, It should read less than 20 ohms. You can get another heater at www.repairclinic.com. Since you are icing up so fast, you might have your thermostat for the freezer set to wide open making it run all the time to gain the coldest temp possible. Please do not knock what Sparkgap said as you could have some moist air getting into your freezer through the door seals. If your heater is ok, then it may be the Defrost temperature sensor. This is unlikely, but still possible. I am not familiar with the Amana fridge so I am not sure where this sensor is located. It does have to be somewhere around the evap coils.

This sounds like a defrosting problem. There is a defrost timer, a heater element, and a therm-o- disk thing that shuts the heater off when the frost is melted. These are the things to check, but it's usually the heater that is burnt out.

This is a pretty common problem. Sometimes the defrost cycle is not long enough because the freezer setting were too low. But most times this begins slowly until the drain finally closes and then the water has no where to go but the inside of freezer or refrigerator. I have more help topics to prevent a constantly happening over and over again. But you may have a blockage down-line from the freezer. So until you can melt the ice and pour a warm solution of water and clorox in the drain and it end up in the pan below the refrigerator I will hold off on that until I hear back from you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Time for manual defrost. Empty, unplug, clean, let sit for 24 hours. Heater becomes overwhelmed with ice and cant work. Cause? Door being held open too long or bad door gasket/ gasket not sealing. If it freezes up again and you know non of the above has happen, then its time to buy a heater and or thermo sensor.. try it. It worked for me and saved big bucks.
