SOURCE: freezer leaks water!

luvbug, Your refrigerator is "frost free" which means it is automatically defrosts after the compressor runs 8 to 12 hours. The defrost cycle lasts approximately 30 minutes. If it is in normal condition, defrosted water goes through the drain into the drip pan under the refrigerator and then evaporates. The problem you are having is one of the most common - the drain line is clogged up. To fix it you have to remove the freezer drawer, defrost and clean the drain. The drawer removal procedure described in the refrigerator manual book. If you do not have one you can find it there: http://www.amana.com/amana/jsp/manual.do You will see the drain hole on the freezer floor by the rear panel. To defrost it you can use your hair dryer. To make sure it is open, run a cup of very hot water through the drain. Reinstall the freezer drawer and enjoy it! Gendos....post it back

SOURCE: water leaking underneath refrigerator/water freezing in bottom of freezer

I'm dealing with the same problem right now with the same refrigerator. The cold water tank (for the front dispenser) has a hole in it that leaks every time someone dispenses water from the front door. You will find the water tank behind the top slide-out drawer in the fridge. The leaked water flows down one of the water tubes through a hole in the bottom of the fridge and onto the floor. I'll bet you have the same problem. Good Luck.

the middle insulation hasbecome water logged, forma faulty defrost tube, so, every time trhe unit defrost, 2 maybe 3 times a day it will spill water inti the vents, andin to the refrig, the only correct way to fix is to have the enitre center drain block replaced, part not that expensive but labor to install may be, ohter then nussincence, not really affecting machines workings

SOURCE: fan runs constantly, freezer ice melting, bottom drawer in refrig

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    SOURCE: ice forming on bottom of

    Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


    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.

    sounds like you have a stopped up drain line where water drains out when freezer is in defrost mode. My Amana freezer does it quiet often.

    Water leaking onto floor coming from under refrigerator


    Hello,

    Their are a couple things causing that leak

    1) the water valve(s) for the icemaker/door dispenser are leaking. Pull the refrif. out,remove service panel from the rear and inspect the valve(s) for leakage. Sometimes their is just one valve on certain models their is two.

    2) the drain for the auto. defrost cycle in the bottom of the freezer back wall is blocked so the defrost water is running out of the freezer door at the bottom

    Good luck,i hope i have able to help you stop the leak,

    Water leak on floor


    Typically on this model the drain hole Under the evaporator cover gets clogged. Remove the cover off the rear of the refrigerator and pour hot water into the drain until it goes down quickly. To remove the cover u will have to remove all the freezer shelves and the icemaker. Remove the covers screw and u should see that at the bottom u will have a block of ice down below. The refer goes onto defrost every couple days and will leak the melted ice onto the floor

    Our amana bottom freezer refrigerator Model ABB2224DEQ at times leaks onto our kitchen floor. We don't have an ice maker so I am wondering where it would be coming from and what needs to be done to...


    This is likely water from the auto defrost operation leaking from the evaporating pan. Sounds like the pan may have a hole in it, or the hose which drains the water into the pan is leaking, The pan is at the very bottom of the unit.

    I assume you mean water leaking on floor of bottom freezer? There should be a small hole in floor in back to drain defrosted water down to pan under unit. This line might be clogged with food or frozen water. Carefully pour some hot/boiling water down tube to clear. You should see it empty into pan under unit where fan evaporates it.
