Question about Amana Refrigerators
look at the back wall of the freezer compartment, see if there is frost accumulation again. this would indicate a defrosting problem.
one your heater could again be busted, second is your bi-metalic disc that controls the heater from over heating is open , third is your defrost controller, either a digital electronic one or a mechanical timer.
anyone of these items are broken, you can only use your refrigerator for 1 week., but based from your story, if it would only happen twice in 6 months,
it could be gasket not properly fiited, air and moisture is coming to the ref and frost accumulation is faster and the heater can not cope with the frost.
check all gasket fitting at both doors to see if they really make a good seal. back to front and underneath the door.
i hope i was able to fix ur problem...

The heater installed by Sears repair was probably an ANTI-CONDENSATION HEATER. The purpose of this part is to keep moisture from forming water drops (condensation) on the vertical surfaces of the refrigerator. There is usually an ENERGY SAVER switch somewhere inside the refrigerator so you can turn off the heater during dry weather. As for the refrigerator being too warm, try this: Purchase a REFRIGERATOR THERMOMETER from a hardware or appliance store. Place it inside the refrigerator, noting the temperature , then each day place it in a different spot inside the refrigerator, noting the temperature at each location. IDEALLY, THE TEMP SHOULD BE ABOUT 36 TO 38 DEGREES F,IN ANY LOCATION. Try using the temperature and usage controls in the ref to set the temp, and wait a day for the fridge to stabilize before reading the thermometer. IIf the temp cannot stay in adjustment, or is not uniform, call the repair man and show him your notes how the temp varies. This will allow him to pinpoint the problem more accurately.
