Question about Amana ABB1924DEB / ABB1924DEW / ABB1924DEQ Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
We've had our Amana ABB1924DEW for a few years. For the last couple of months water builds up and freezes in the the bottom of the freezer compartment. Eventually some of it starts dripping onto the floor in front of the freezer. We've broken up the thick ice from time to time, but it continues to do it again. I'm totally stumped as to what can be happening. By the way we don't have an ice maker. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

It is possible to get this build up in the return vents. Check seals for any possiblilty of warm air getting into the fridge. Warm air getting in will cause this. For now use a hair dryer or some hot water to clear the vents. Let me know what you find. Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.

remove back panel inside freezer. you will see drain tray at bottom with a drain hole in the middle - this is blocked usually with ice. melt off with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till water flows away freely

Yes you are right there is a drain tube in the middle of the coils. You need to remove the back panel and you will see the coils of the evaporator (freezer) and right underneath you will see drain tube. Now more then likely it is plugged with ice so take some regular table salt and two or three teaspoons on the top of the tube opening will break it loose and start draining. Take some regular tap water and pour down just to flush the tube and inspect the bottom collection pan under the fridge and see how much water is coming out. Be sure to have unit turned off when you do this cause the fan will run inside the freezer compartment other wise. Hope this helps you. ken

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end
because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the
evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it.
Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing
it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.
