Thanks.

If it's any help, I set both the refrigerator and freezer settings to the lowest they can go, but it didn't make the sound stop.

I spoke with a local electrical contractor who also sells a limited stock of appliances. From my description of the problem, he theorized that it's a problem with something the controls the defrost cycle. Recommended that I shut it off for a day, the turn it back on and see what happens. Unfortunately, he said they only service Whirlpool appliances.

FWIW,

Amana was owned by Maytag when Whirlpool bought Maytag....so Whirlpool owns Amana and makes it.

The only thing I don't want to see happen is the symptoms disappear from a manual defrosting before it is checked....JMO!
