Amana refrigerator freezer access panel removal


As a plumber... I would initially want to see if it is indeed a leak from the water line. You have defrosted, so there would be water at that time and a short period thereafter. You have had the unit off for two days so it's not been able to "generate" any more ice or even had a chance to malfunction and "try" open the solonoid valve and allow water into the ice maker or water dispenser.... All that being said...

I suspect the water you're see is ultimately from the incoming (pressurized) water line... probably not from the actual ice make line coming into the fridge, but more than likely somewhere "within" the piping of the fridge itself... its very possible something was accidentally damaged during the previous process you just went through-- especially if you removed the door to the freezer. Many fridge's have the water line come through the lower side hinge of the freezer door, not sure if this is true in your case.

Hope this helps, if not it may be applicable to someone else... good luck!

Ice forming on bottom of inside of side by side AMANA refrigerator / freezer and leaking on floor


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Ice is forming in the freezer due a small hole formed the freezer door.some say that the gas is leeking so it happens any solution?


you must close the hole otherwise you will always see the frost.Humid air comes from outside and creates the frost.Change the door gasket.Be sure it seals good.

Water from core is getting into my freezer


Right, the drip tray on the upper coil section has a blockage (possibly mold) that prevents the defrost condensate from reaching the evaporator pan that should be at the bottom of the fridge. Those lines are usually accessed from the back of the fridge.
