Freezer section is cold but
Find defrost timer normally located behind the cover plate for the fresh food temperature thermostat. It will have a one way adjustable screw head on it. Turn the screw slowly until you hear a click (this would normally be where the defrost would begin) leave in this position for an hour or until you hear compressor kick back on. If you have water in catch pan of refrigerator you have bad timer. Otherwise you have bad heater or defrost thermostat. To check heater and thermostat I would go to parts site on Internet and type in model no. And see if they have diagnosis videos on this or similar ref. Otherwise buy the heaters and thermostat remove shelves, ice maker etc. To get to the liner of ref. Remove it and you can then remove and replace the heater and thermo. Be very careful as the cooling fins are sharp as razors.

Amana ASD2620HRB Side-by-Side freezer running, but not freezing. What could cause this?
What is running? The important motor is the compressor - the one that works with the refrigerant to supply cooling. If it is not running you can check the start relay/capacitor. If they are good, make sure that electricity is reaching the motor windings. If the thermostat stays open, the compressor will not be activated.
If compressor is running and if there is ice buildup on the evaporator behind the back panel, then the self defrost mechanism is not working - could be you have an open heater coil. If you completely defrost the refrig for a day and then plug back in, if it works fine, then it is definitely ice buildup which serves as an insulator and prevents cold air from reaching the refrigerator portion.
