    Remove the back panel wall of the freezer. You will see a drain hole in the center. You will need to clear this line out so the water will run to the pan under the refrigerator.

SOURCE: puddles on top shelf and under crisper drawers

This is not a major repair and also a very common problem. You will need to turn unit off and remove everything from inside the freezer. After this remove the back panel of the freezer and you will see ice built up at the bottom of the coils. You will have to remove all this ice and clear the defrost drain trough and tube. After the ice is removed you will see the defrost drain located about midways. Use a hair dryer to melt this then take a cup of very very very hot water and pour a little in the tube. Let stand for 5 minutes then dry it up real good and repeat. Do this till the drain clears and water flows freely. Then reassemble and you are good to go.

SOURCE: There is water pooling and

JUST FIXED THE SAME PROBLEM. In the refrigerator compartment at the top of the back wall there should be a drain hole. You may have to remove the plastic temp. unit & light. it should be one piece. You could probably let it hang by the electrical wires instead of disconecting, I did and had light to work by. I tried a wire coat hanger to unblock the drain but it wasn't flexable enough. I had some No. 12 Electrical wire, I stripped the plastic coating & used one piece of wire, it was plyable enough to get by any bends in the drain & strong enough to break up any blockage. My frige is just like new.

Amana fridge model number Arb1914cw is not cooling. Freezer is working fine


Bottom freezer fridges are especially susceptible to
  1. Dust build up on the condenser coil that impedes heat transfer to the outside from inside the box
    • Remove the (bottom) footplate by grasping outside edges and pulling/levering out and popping it free.
    • Use vac crevice attachment and coil brush to clean away all dust from the coil and foot plate.
    • Replace plate and allow 24 hours for inside temp to stabilize.
    • Adjust top temp setting if needed to maintain safe temp level.
    • Repeat semianually or annually as scheduled maintenance--depending on the dustiness is fridge's location.
  2. Airflow blockage through the crispers and meat keepers.
    • Remove crispers and meat keeper as well as glass cover shelf.
    • Find cooling passages between crispers and at midline of meat keeper.
    • Remove any buildup of air blocking debris.
    • Wipe up fridge box floor beneath meat keeper.
    • Reinstall glass shelf, meat keeper, and crispers.
    • Check perodically for poor temperature/moisture keeping in crispers and for water pooling on fridge box floor as signs of blocked air flow through criispers and meat keepers.

Water comes off somewhere in the bottom of my fridge. what could have caused it?


When your refrig goes into defrost , the water runs down the back of the refrig ( inside ) and out to the drip pan thru a drain hole under the crispers . If water is under the crispers , remove the crispers and you should see a " cap " covering the drain hole . Sometimes crud will cover the slots where the water is supposed to drain , causing water to pool under the crispers . Just remove this cap , clean , and reinstall .

Ice and water on the bottom shelf of my sears Kenmore regular refrigerator. things are cold but water pooling on the bottom shelf.it is a Kenmore freezer on top and refrigerator on the bottom


Drain stopped up. Defrosting occurs and condensation water must be evacuated, this is done through a dran hole. Clogged drain means water inside under crispers messy all that luv. Find the drain hole and give her a good old clean out. All will be good.
