Question about Amana ATB1935HR Top Freezer Refrigerator
I have an 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.
Your theory is correct. You will have to defrost the drain and clear any other obstructions to get the water draining correctly again. To do this you will have to go in through the freezer. Remove the back panel by removeing the 3-4 screws that hold the back wall in place. You will see the drain directly under the coil. It will be a small hole and it will most likely be covered with ice. YOu will need to defrost all the ice and clear the drain. If the coils are frosted up you may have other issues like a defrost heater that is bad. The defrost heater is directly under the coils and you can simply check for continuity through the heater.
The drain is sometimes difficult to defrost, I use a towel to dry water, and I use cups of hot water to pour onto the ice, then just dry up the mess as you make it. You can also rub the drain with your finger to help defrost. I also use a flexable ruber hose to blow air into the drain untill the drain is clear again. If you have any other questions please just ask. I hope this will FixYa. Please dont forget to rate me.
