Question about Amana ARB220ZCS Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I've replaced the freezer Temp Control, thinking that would fix my problem, but the compressor stays running the temps are good . I let it run for over 2 hours, without the compressor turning off. I can turn it off by manually turning the defrost timer. It stays off for about 20 minutes. Does this mean that my defrost timer is bad or do I have another problem?
Temperature setting/changes takes more than 2 hours to stabilize.If still running non stop after 24 hours use a digital thermometer to check the internal temp of refrigerator. If not cold enough it will not open the thermometer and turn off the compressor. Meanwhile, a 20 minute defrost cycle is about right.

Look at the gasket between the door and the ref cabinet. If you have any gap in there, then worm air is getting in, condensing, then freezing.

There is a vent that is connected from the freezer down to the fridge right where the fan is,make sure nothing is blocking it.

Here is the Amana website with the manuals which should show you where the defrost timer etc. is located. Witht your model number and manual it will be a lot easer
And yes the defrost timer thermostat and heater are the most likely problem.
Do not let this keep running and running or you may lose your compressor too which means a lot more expense than now.
