Question about Refrigerators
I have a '93 Amana with top freezer. Only the bottom of the freezer will freeze anything. The other two shelves are progressively warmer and neither will freeze. The other problem is that water is building up inside of the refrigerator, under the crispers. I have notice that the drain hose appears inoperable, and the water pan is as dry as a desert. I put a wire up the hose, which stopped at about the point where the freezer starts.
My theory is that the hose has become plugged, water has built up and froze someplace in there, and because of that blockage the water has no where to go so its running down the inside and that's why the crispers are wet. This is just a theory.
You are right about the cause of water in the fridge - blockage in the drain. i'v never met this caused by ice but it is possible.
with the freezer, the cause of the fault is the fan not working - probably jammed with ice. take back panel off inside freezer and check for ice build up. if loads of ice thgen defrost system has failed. you can do a temporary repair by melting the ice off with a hairdryer
