Question about Amana Freezers
I noticed ice building up in the back of the freezer at the same time items in the freezer began failing to freeze solid and the fridge stopped getting cold enough. I took off the back panel in the freezer and used heat lamps to remove all of the ice. It has been about 1 week and the freezer has since worked fine. Set on ''2'' it keeps everything frozen solid. I look through the vents in the freezer every day and have thus far noticed no ice reaccumulating on the coils, but the fridge continues to get only moderatly cool. The fridge setting doesn't seem to do anything. The compressor fails to react when turning the fridge thermostat up or down. I am wondering if there is a thermostat controlled vent between the fridge and freezer that should be actuated by the thermostat in the fridge that has failed? Is full of ice maybe? Also why it iced up in the first place. How to fix the fridge/freezer?
Either your defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost thermostat has failed. All parts are located behind the lower back panel inside the freezer. Most likely are the defrost heater and defrost thermostat.

If the unit is running continuously and not maintaining the temperature cold enough the system may have a leak. If it is NOT running continuously the problem could be in the temperature control.

you maybe blocking the circalation in the freezer the way you have things packed in there. Move large items away from where the cold air blows in.
