Amana freezer door doesn't fully shut


There is a drain inside the freezer part of the arb2257csr. The drain can get clogged and the water from the defrost process will pool up on the bottom of the freezer. You can gain access to the back of the unit and remove the pan drain to clean it out. Then make sure water flows and ice is not blocking the drain. It takes a long time to melt so I used a turkey baster and put hot water into the drain from the lower inside middle of the freezer. This drain pan can get pretty smelly when rancid oils and such don't evaporate the way it was designed to evaporate the water. The symptoms were ice on the inside bottom and water pooling in the front of the drawer. It also became very hard to close the door due to the frozen door slide. I have not seen anyone report this on any site so far. Everyone talks about the thermostat but no one seems to have arteriosclerosis of the drain tube.

If there is water under your crisper drawers your drain line under your freezer panel is clogged up or frozen over.

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.

Water collecting under produce bin which has to be collected every couple of days.Amana model # TX21VE 7.74 amps


Your drain is clogged. Every time it defrosts the water from the defrost should drain out to a catch basin under the ice box. That drain is clogged. You need to access the drain and clear it.

My daughter has an Amana side by side SRD 20S4W. Water/ice puddle on the inside bottom of the freezer section and periodically spill under the door and onto the floor. The problem started about a month...


Yes there is. You will need to remove the back panel to acess it. Try using a turkey baster with warm water or a wire. After clearing mix a 50-50 baking soda water solution and run it down the drain, this will help prevent future clogs.

Freezer leaks water!


luvbug, Your refrigerator is "frost free" which means it is automatically defrosts after the compressor runs 8 to 12 hours. The defrost cycle lasts approximately 30 minutes. If it is in normal condition, defrosted water goes through the drain into the drip pan under the refrigerator and then evaporates. The problem you are having is one of the most common - the drain line is clogged up. To fix it you have to remove the freezer drawer, defrost and clean the drain. The drawer removal procedure described in the refrigerator manual book. If you do not have one you can find it there: http://www.amana.com/amana/jsp/manual.do You will see the drain hole on the freezer floor by the rear panel. To defrost it you can use your hair dryer. To make sure it is open, run a cup of very hot water through the drain. Reinstall the freezer drawer and enjoy it! Gendos....post it back
