There should be a drain hose that takes the melted ice (water) out the back and down into a pan under the refrigerator where it evaporates. Check inside the lower part of the freezer for a small hole-it needs to be clear to let the water run through the tube and down into the pan. The tube can usually be disconnected behind the unit to clear it out with a wire or hanger. Good luck

Freezer section is cold but refrigerator section will not cool because of ice build up on evaporator coils in freezer and air can not flow to refrigerator side. I manually defrosted it two weeks ago 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.

FREEZER WORKING BUT FRIDGE NOT


Remove the rear panel in the freezer and see if the evaporator coils are frozen over.
If so dethaw coils with a hair dryer.
Reassemble freezer and set controls to the normal position.

Although you replaced the defrost timer if the coils were frozen over in the freezer no air can transfer to the ref. section from the freezer.

If you do not want to dethaw the coils unplug the ref. for 1-2 days and leave the doors open .The coils will dethaw by then.

Fridge/freezer warm, water puddling underneath


Hi, clicking sound from compressor, means compressor not running (working) compressor overlay relay is what making that clicking sound, possible your compressor have a hard start, you can purchase compressor ( hard start kit ) from appliance store, your fans could be working, but compressor short cycling, you said fan not working? which one inside of ref, or one near to compressor, check fan, remove 2 wires from fan terminal, use ohm tester, place tester lead one on each fan terminal, if you get a beep sound (continuity) fan is o/k, if not, fan burnt out, replace fan, now if compressor is good, fans are good, then check or replace, defrost timer, but before doing any repairs, unplug ref, excessive water is because ref defrosting, because there's no refrigeration, remove your produce, leave ref. off for about an hour, then replug it, let it work for about another hour, then check to see if temp. dropping (colder) maybe you experiencing, low voltage, let me know what happened, then i can tell you exactly, what's the problem. good luck.

Door open all day Amana SXD22S2w


the evaporator is clogged with frost, just as if the defrost heater went out. Two options, remove all food and leave ref unplugged and doors open for half a day, or remove the back wall(evaporator cover) and defrost it with a hair dryer.

The ref is iced up because of the ice door being left open, you will have to manually defrost the ref by leaving it open for 7-8 hours,put you food somewhere else.
