Question about Amana ATB2135HR Top Freezer Refrigerator
I have included this problem under this category because i cannot find my amana at5518sw top freezer anywhere on the site.Hope someone may be able to help????? The fridge has devoloped an internal water leak.Water leaks from the vent in the centre of the fridge section and also around the internal light. If i push up underneath the freezer section (right hand side)large amounts of water flows from the vent. I have been told this may be a condensation problem and cannot be fixed...does not sound right??? Any advice helpful.
When water collects in bottom of frost -free fridge , first suspect is drain opening behind plate covering evaporator in top freezer. Drain opening is into vertical tube running down to bottom of fridge and into collection pan under the fridge where the water is allowed to evaporate into room air. Reaching the drain opening directly is not always easy and blockage in my case was bits of matter. I was able to force water with a hose and fittings up this drain tube exposed with back cover off and had gunky-like material pour out of fridge. It was the solution.

King, you probably have a defrost drain port that is frozen over. When the unit goes into defrost it's running through the air damper instead of going out the drain line. Therefore you get water into the refrigerator section. You can verify this by removing the evaporator cover in the freezer and checking the drain hole. You can clear it by running hot water into it. You will have to remove all the built up ice from water that did not drain in that area...Catriver..post back.

KING, Did this solution solve your problem or was it a temporary fix? I have had the same problem but it is ongoing even though I un-freeze the drain. cstoutor
