Check the tube in the freezer to see if it's plugged with ice.

We have water leaking slowly from beneath the water/ice dispenser unit in our Amana side by side. It is 2 1/2 years old and this is a new problem.


Hello,


The water is from the melted frost of the defrost cycle. The drain at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer is blocked so instead of the water draining into the pan where it will evaperate,it's pooling on the freezer floor and freezing, in many case when the floor indent is full the water will leak onto the floor.By pulling the refrigerator out from the wall,there will be a tube behind the service panel on the right side when looking at it from the rear,that tube can be removed and cleared,then clear the nozzle it connects to inside the freezer.

I hope this helps you to stop the leak,

Instructions for installation of amana water inlet valve 12544001


Hello,
I know that seems like the incorrect part but it replaces the water valve that had 2 outlet hoses connected to it. To replace that;
Turn off house water supply to old valve and disconnect tubing
remove old valve and unplug the 2 wire connections and the 2 outlet hoses
The two outlet hoses were what was considered a Y hose..cut off semi clear plastic tubing a inch back where the 2 semi clear plastic tubes merge and become only 1
pull one of the plastic nuts off of the Y tube
slip it onto the end of the newly cut single tube
slip single tube into outlet threaded outlet of new valve and tighten that plastic nut
connect the 2 wire plugs onto new valve
remount to back of refrig
attatch house water supply to metal fitting that has/had protective rubber cap over it (oh of course remove procetive rubber cap and discard it)
turn water supply back on
it may up to 4 hrs for water to flow to icemaker so best to test by dispensing water through freezer door

Good luck,any questions or problems please reply and i'll help you,

Need a diagram of Amana top freezer refrigerator model #ATB2132ARW My fridge has a clogged drain tube, but I can't locate the drain.


I can't find a diagram but have a different model Amana. The drain tube on mine was located just above the drip pan under the refrigerator. It was a soft plastic/rubber and had become clogged due to something sticky that stuck it together. Caused the freezer water to back up and after cleaning the tube, I had to defrost the refrigerator completely to melt the ice blocking the tube at th top (in the freezer). Sorry I can't help with more info.

THE WATER GETS FROZEN INTO THE PLASTIC TUBE ROLL WHICH SERVES LIKE A DEPOSIT TANK TO COOL THE WATER.


the fresh food side is too cold . if colder than 38 deg it can freeze water tubing . there are kits for amana and maytag and jen air to prevent this ( and what is in kit is rubber shelf blocker strips that install on the back edge to prvent change of air flow . they can be ordered from amana for your model .. and you might ck the tempt in fresh food side and adjust to 38 deg . this can help . also adjust the freezer to a higher # this will slow the cold air comming from the freezer side . hope this helps mm

Water leak from ice maker


The fill line internal to the freezer is likely frozen up from the elbow inward.. When the icemaker calls for fill...pressure builds up on the plastic tubing causing it to pop out of the elbow. Check the tube inside the freezer by removing icemaker and running a long thin screwdriver or a rigid wire up into the tube until you feel ice or the plastic elbow outside.

Clear ice, if present, by squeezing hot water in from freezer side with turkey baster until cleared and water comes out back.

When we depress the water lever, water comes out at the bottom of the center between the ref and freezer on bottom. I have checked the coil at the bottom of the fridge and its ok. Looked inside (as best as...


George I have an amana side by side. . .

There is a plastic fitting ( a splicer) that connects a plastic tube that runs into the hinge of the door to a larger tube that goes back into the water filter (if equipped) or up into a shut off valve. It has two plastic nuts that connect to a threaded piece in the middle. It may be that this is just loose or missing. You can get them at any harware store normally. Measure the larger tube and take the smaller tube

If you don't see a tube running from a hole in the hinge of the door that has the water statioin (normally the freezer) then read on. . .

Most likely the tube has been severed. If the tube isnt visible coming from the hinge in the freezer door, then it's possible severed and retracted back inside. this is what happened to me. To replace the tube in the door with a longer piece, you must remove the faceplate of the water station. First you carefully pry off any switch plates for the cubed/crushed switch and then carefully remove the plastic faceplate around the outside edges with a plastic paint scraper or small screw driver. Normally they snap into the water station. Be careful not to damage the plastic clips that keep them. Next you will may have to remove a metal plate to expose the tube that dispenses the water. You must find the end of the water tube and remove any clip or fitting that holds it in place. Pull the tube all the way out and you may see that the end was severed. You will need to replace this piece with a longer section available at any hardware store. I would get one at least a foot longer to ensure that you can trim to fit. Begin to insert the new tube by going into the hole in the bottom of the door first (the one in the hinge) and pushing the plastic tube until it emerges at the water station. finish by replacing the clip on the end that emerges so it looks about the same as it did before. Trim the bottom so the tubes meet together before you replce the splicer.

Again, if the plastic splicer fitting on that connected the two tubes together (one tube is larger than the other) is missing, you can get this piece at the hardware store.

Hope this works!

Yep. Remove that tube from the valve, then pull that nut off of it. Now cut the tube back an inch or so put the nut back on (with about 1/2" of tubing sticking through it), put it back on the valve and tighten it good and tight.

Freezer drain plug


Self defrosting refrigerators as well as freezers all have a defrost drain system. This drain system can become plugged or frozen causing defrost drain water to back up into the refrigerator or freezer compartment. The water may gather under the crisper drawers on top freezer models. On side by side, bottom or stand alone freezers ice will build up in the freezer at the bottom and eventually leak out the door.

Plugged Defrost Drain - Freezer on Top (Water under the crisper drawers)

At the top of the refrigerator next to the temperature controls there usually is a cup-like part that carries the defrost drain water into a tube and out the back of the refrigerator to a defrost drain pan behind the unit. Pull the cup out of the tube and clean the cup with hot water and soap. If there is no cup, pull the refrigerator out away from the wall, go behind it and disconnect the drain tube to clear it. If the drain tube is not accessible from the back or the drain can not be cleared from there the main back panel in the freezer can be removed to access, thaw and flush out the drain under the cooling coil.

Use a turkey baster to flush HOT water into the tube to clear any obstruction. The water squirted into the tube should end up in the defrost drain pan.

If the tube will not clear with hot water try blowing it out with compressed air.

Put the cup back on and make sure it is all the way on or in the tube.

Plugged Defrost Drain - Side By Side, Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator or Stand Alone Freezer

The defrost drain pan is located at the bottom of the freezer compartment behind the back wall of the freezer. On some models, the pan is accessible without removing the back panel and others are not. After you get to the defrost drain pan use a hair dryer to melt the ice from the pan.

Once the ice is removed use a turkey baster to squirt HOT water into the drain hole to clear the drain.

When the drain is clear you should hear or see the water you are squirting into the hole enter the pan under or behind the refrigerator.

Help, no water but have ice out of door on amana side by side.


The freezer temperature dial is set too cold and it is causing the water to freeze in the tube right where it enters the freezer section.If you turn the temperature selector one or two numbers warmer for the freezer it will help.
You will also have to turn the box off and let the freezer thaw real good so that the line will thaw. Once this has been done, it should work fine.
