Question about Amana ATB1832AR Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water collects at the bottom of the refrigerator. I cleaned the freezer portion but was unable to find the hole that lets the frost free water get evaporated. I could not get the back of the inside of the freezer off. How do I stop the water from getting to the bottom of the refrigerator?

Water leaking in at the bottom of the freezer and the draw jamming with ice. This is a frost free refrigerator and freezer.

Sometimes a solid ground wire
wrap around the defrost heater and the other end stuck in drain hole has helped for me. Avoid letting the wire or whatever to touch the plastic side of the hole.

Ice is forming in the bottom of the freezer compartment of my hotpoint FFM90 frost free fridge/ freezer. Please help. Many Thanks


Had exactly the same problem.
It was due to a blockage of the drain.
At the back of the freezer there is the pump and there is a small darin that lets condensation from inside the freezer spill onto the top of the (hot) pump to be evaporated. When this small drain blocks it causes issues like water leaking out of freezer and big chunks of ice at the back of the bottom compartment.
The fix is easy, if a little laborious.
Take all the stuff out of the freezer, then dismantle the internal plastic trip, don't worry, you can't really break anything and it goes back together easily, Eventually you will be left with just the bare metal insides and in the middle at the bottom back you will see the drain collection point, slightly hidden from view is the drain hole. Pour warm water onto this till it comes out onto the pump at the back.
Then use a pipe cleaner to clean.
Re-assemble - done :)

In the freezer compartment, there is frost in the back. It's a side by side 19.9 without a water dispenser. The refrigerator part is not as cold as it should be but it is cold.


although most frost free freezers will hardly ever frost up,some will,(it depends on overall humidity)by frost free the makers say "food is frost free"but the inside is shinny plastic and all shinny surfaces will collect condensation and frost up.(look under the salad crisper,condensation?)it is worthwhile, about once a year,doing a complete defrost(NO sharp objects)and vacuum out all the vents/clean out any drain holes.
saves you a fortune in power.......

Could be drain hole or tube from the drain hole to the evaporator tray is clogged with ice. Unplug refrigerator. Locate drain hole, use a hair drier to melt ice around drain hole, pour very hot water into it and let it stand. Soak up water with a paper towel after it has cooled. and repeat until water drains freely. I have used my compressed air can to blow the obstruction into the evaporator tray.

poss answer is drain hole/vent blocked,as unit auto defrosts water/vapour collects at bottom and when unit swiches back on it freezes,poke out drain with thin wire with a small piece of cloth dipped in clorine bleach or blow out with air hose.do not use hot water to manually defrost/ clean drain holes every 6 months

Water accumulation underneath the bottom vetable


Two solutions
1 If a frost free fridge/freezer - ice build up in internal cooler - defrost totally until no more water
2 if ordinary fridge/freezer look inside at the back, you should see a very shallow 'V' shaped plastic channel running to a small drain hole which leads to the rear outside of the unit. This channel collects the water drips from the cooler
Clear this hole with a pipe cleaner or cocktail stick or similar

Our freezer collects water in the bottom that eventually spills out onto the floor


Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your refrigerator pdine.
Water inside the appliance means there is air coming inside of the unit or there is a water leak.
Do you have any idea where the water is coming from?
Your refrigerator do have ice maker or water dispenser?

Build up of ice in bottom of freezer compartment


During the defrost cycle heaters in the wall of the freezer are turned on to melt the frost build up. This melted frost "water" is supposed to run out a drain in the bottom of the freezer and collect in a pan under the refrigerator/freezer where it will eventually evaporate. If this drain is blocked it will cause a lot of water to collect in the bottom of the freezer and that water will eventually turn back into ice. I recommend defrosting the freezer manually, removing all the ice/water buildup in the bottom, and trying to unplug the drain line to the pan underneath. Also check the seal on the freezer door. If it's not sealing well it could be letting a lot of moisture enter the freezer which would lead to more frost buildup and more water during the defrost cycle.

Water collecting in Refrigerator freezer section


the drain hole could have ben clogged with dirt and now with ice as the water did not drain as it went back to freezing mode. un plug the unit, let the ice thaw for a day, open the rear cover of the freezer and clean the bottom part of the evaporator. you can find the hole at the bottom part of the drain pan. i hope i was able to help.
