SOURCE: Amana refrigerator top freezer going out; water under crispers

Hi jimorso,
Your theory is correct. You will have to defrost the drain and clear any other obstructions to get the water draining correctly again. To do this you will have to go in through the freezer. Remove the back panel by removeing the 3-4 screws that hold the back wall in place. You will see the drain directly under the coil. It will be a small hole and it will most likely be covered with ice. YOu will need to defrost all the ice and clear the drain. If the coils are frosted up you may have other issues like a defrost heater that is bad. The defrost heater is directly under the coils and you can simply check for continuity through the heater.
The drain is sometimes difficult to defrost, I use a towel to dry water, and I use cups of hot water to pour onto the ice, then just dry up the mess as you make it. You can also rub the drain with your finger to help defrost. I also use a flexable ruber hose to blow air into the drain untill the drain is clear again. If you have any other questions please just ask. I hope this will FixYa. Please dont forget to rate me.
Mike

SOURCE: amana side by side with ice/water in the door freezer stops freezing about 8 yrs old

First of all the worst thing you can do is set your fridge on the highest setting even though it has it. That's live reving your car to the red line just because it has it. As far as your challenge is concerned, it sounds like a breach in the seal of the fridge or dispenser. Check to see if the ice despenser is closing properly after use and check the door seal to make sure it's closing tight when the door is closed. To do this, simply inspect it for any bad wrinkles, cracks, folds, etc. if none are visible close the door on a dollar bill and make sure it holds securly all the way around the door. I f it doesn't, the seal may need to be replaced and/or the door is warped. If you continue to have issues, post again, we will work this out.

SOURCE: Amana SPD26VW runs, lights on, does not freeze

I called Amana and found the "sealed systems" are still under warranty. It cost me $85 for a service call and the fridge is working. The problem was a plugged "capillary line."

SOURCE: fridge barely cool freezer not freezing

I suggest first getting it checked. Maybe there is just a small leak which can be sealed and coolant refilled. If say the compressor is damaged or other major component then only the repair cost will dictate what to do next.
Refrigerators are not very complex and have relatively few parts. You will probably get satisfactory results from repairs.

SOURCE: bad tasting ice from amana freezer - automatic ice

Do not use a steel or plastic braided line. They make the ice taste bad.

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.

Ice maker installation


do you have a water supply line connected to the refrigerator? if so, it connects to the water solenoid, so you wont need to install that. if you have no water line, not only do you need to install that, but you will also have to check to see if you also need to install the solenoid assembly. if no solenoid is present, you will likely also have to run a plastic water line, ¼", from the solenoid up the back wall into the sleeve near the top of the back wall, which feeds the water into the freezer, into the icemaker.

if you want to send a check, id be glad to post a video

The cold water dispencer freezes in my amana bottom freezer refrigerator


The water line runs through the door and this is where it freezes. It's usually defetive insulation. Other than replace the door you may can tape or other wise fasten more insulation to the inside of the door in the area you think it's freezing in.

Ice maker filling with water but not freezing into cubes.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

The condensate drain may not be draining into the pan under the fridge or it may have a leak or could even be not connected to the condensate pan in the evaporator.
Another possibility is that your condenser might be dirty or plugged causing the suction line going to the compressor to freeze up and then thaw leaving puddles under the fridge. Clean the condenser (the coil under or behind the fridge) and it should stop.
Over stocking the freezer will cause this as well. If you cover the air return in the freezer the evaporator will freeze up and the suction line will freeze back to the compressor.

Amana SxS fridge not cooling or freezing


You have a sealed system problem. There is either a small leak or a restriction somewhere in the tubing. This isn't something you could've caused so don't worry about that. Unfortunately this isn't something you can fix yourself either. You require a certified refrigeration technician to fix this problem.

Amana Icemaker not working


Sign guy, you have a bad water valve on your fridge. It's allowing a very small amount of water to bypass it and enter into the freezer section Ice Maker fill tube where it freezes. (I always pull those fill tubes out through the back of the fridge and run them under hot water, then blow through them to ensure that it's clear.) You'll need a new valve assy. for it. Open the fridge door and find the data tag, get the model number off of it and call your local appliance parts place. It'll be a dual coil valve assembly.
