Question about Admiral 26 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator
I have a side by side Admiral fridge freezer ad the freezer is leaking. Advice on this site is to remove the back panel and clear out a clogged drain. We managed to remove the upper panel at the back of the freezer but couldn't remove the lower panel (which has a kind of grating at the bottom). Any ideas?

Does freezer cool like the cold food section? Did this suddenly happen, and frozen food began to thaw? Most freezers control the cooling in the cold food section. The freezer must work fine before the cold food section will work fine. Let us know more, Thanks JT

All the cold air from your freezer gets pushed into the fridge with a fan in your freezer section. So your problem is from the fact that this cold air isn't get to your fridge.
- the door that allows this cold air into the fridge, normally in the top left corner of the fridge, is stuck shut and needs replacement.
-the freezer isn't defrosting and restricting the air flow
-the temp controller for the fridge is damaged and thinks that the fridge is cold enough.

CHECK TO SEE IF THE EVAPORATOR FAN MOTOR IS RUNNING, ITS IN THE BACK OF THE FREEZER SIDE, MOTOR MAY BE BAD OR SOMETHING COULD BE BLOCKING IT...

I just fixed this problem with my Admiral. I noticed the problem when I found ice in the bottom of the freezer and water leaking out onto the floor. Here is what I did: remove all of the food from the freezer into large coolers. Pull-out the shelves, the icemaker bin, and thaw the basket with a hairdryer until you can pull it out. There are about 12 phillips head screws that hold a plastic baffle covering the freezer coils. Remove all of the screws and loosen but do not remove the icedispenser motor and freezer light (you can pry it up to get to the top screw of the baffle). Pull the top part of the baffle away from the back of the freezer and then slide the baffle up to reveal the defrost drip tray and drain. Use a hair dryer and screw driver to remove the iceblock from the drip try and to thaw any other ice in the bottom of the freezer. Also thaw the top of the drain. Now pull the freezer out from the wall and under the drain area in the back you will find the drain tube attached with a "Oh-Jesus" clamp - at least that is what we call them here in Indiana. Pinch the clamp with pliers and pull the drain tube down. Use a stretched out wire hanger to snake out the tube (I had lots of calcium deposit and a dust ball clogging the tube) and then replace. Test the system with a cup of water to make sure the drain works (should see water end up in the pan under the right front bottom drip tray). Replace baffle, icemaker motor/light, bin, shelves, food, done.
