I have had luck cleaning refrige drain lines in 2 ways,make sure theres no ice in the drain line just below the freezer drain pan,then try a piece of plastic hose available from any hardware or home stores and feed it down the drain under the drain pan and blow into the hose to pressurize the line it may dislodge the blockage,if not,try a piece of wire and rat the line out till water drains

I need to clear the drain line on my Amana ARB1917 bottom freezer refrigerator. I've accessed the short tube that is supposed to move the water from the fridge/freezer to the drain pan ... it's...


The way to check that everything is clear pour some water over the evaperator coil in the freezer and see that the water drains very quickly. Also you could use a can of compressed air that you would use to clean the keyboadr and what not on your computer and blow it in drain and clear anything remaining

How do I clear a plugged defrost coil drain line?


You will need to Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into the drain line with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of 1/4 inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog. This will correct the issue.

Ice builds up in freezer bottom pan, not going down the drain tube. Is this an indicator of the defrost timer not working correctly, and if so where is the drfrost timer on a ETIFTTXKT02 model?


Defrost timer is working or there would not be water/ice in the bottom pan (as you describe it.). Check that the drain tube from the pan to the bottom evaproation tray under the refrigerator is clear of restriction.

How do i clear drainpipe so defrost will go to drippan instead of inside the fridge


Compressed air/nitrogen. Air conditioning parts houses sell a kit used for clearing condensate drain lines. This device uses a CO2 cartridge for pressure. When you clear the drain pour a solution of 50/50 bleach water in the drain to kill the microbials.

Water accumulates in freezer


Hi! when you clear your drain line add hot water and make sure it goes all the way down to your condensate pan next to your compressor also i trick is to put a piece to clothes hanger around the heating element of the frig into the drain line so when it goes into defrost heat will go down the drain line..Good luck..

Freezer leaking


Defrost drain is located in the back of the refrigerator. Check loop or trap, it may be plugged. You must remove the back cover panel to see the drain line and to clear it. After the drain trap is cleared you may have to defrost the freezer section to clear the ice caused by backup from the plugged trap.
