With this amount of regularity i would have to believe you have a rather large ice ball on the very bottom of the freezer. if this is true you have a clogged defrost drain... you can fix it free
take out the bottom 3 shelves break away all the ice care full its plastic take out the 1/4 bolts holding in the back panel
you will see the coil.
you need to defrost this completely, then comes the fun part
you need to defrost the whole thing the tube is dead center that will need to be cleasred as well,
if your really into it you can pull the unit out take off the back and check the tube from there as well
id be willing to bet, there is a small srew in the tube but thats another story it will come out
once clear you should be ok
you can also take the duck bill off the tube end that sits in the pan just make sure you put the tube back in the pan,........ close it up your done
if there is no obvious blockage you have another problem ,,,, but now it will show up

That would be a clogged drain.....take everything out of the freezer and there should be 2 to 4 screws to take off the back wall of the freezer. Break up the ice and poor hot water at the bottom where the drain is until it starts running in the drain pan. If you have a small hose to slide down the drain that will help also

Refridgerator will not cool. Freezer works fine. Noticed a pool of water on floor then started to cool again. after a few days quit cooling.


Check the water drain hole in bottom of unit. If plugged water cannot get to catch and pan and evaporate with the heating element.

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,
Gene

Amana side by side refrigerator dumps a large puddle of water in front every month or so. Nothing in the owner's manual to help trouble shoot this problem. Model is SS25TE

Water leak on floor


Typically on this model the drain hole Under the evaporator cover gets clogged. Remove the cover off the rear of the refrigerator and pour hot water into the drain until it goes down quickly. To remove the cover u will have to remove all the freezer shelves and the icemaker. Remove the covers screw and u should see that at the bottom u will have a block of ice down below. The refer goes onto defrost every couple days and will leak the melted ice onto the floor

We have an almost 4 year old Amana refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom #Abb1922FEW. From time to time we find puddles of water on the floor outside the refrigerator and dont know the ause or what...


OK the silent defrost pool drop problem. This is one that seem to be playing hide but most are just that leaving everyone wondering what caused the problem. This may be a little tricky but try to locate from what door thee leak is coming from. Also below the refrigerator there are possibilities also liker a crack in the defrost condensate pan near compressor or rven someting I found around mine a couple weeks ago. Someone had placed an object on the top near back of refrigerator and when it fell it became tangeled in the water supply hose to ice maker. I first noticed a small pool to the front and right of floor in the front of refrigerator.The ice bin was full so I did not think that a hose would be loose but it was and cause a pool of water about twice a day. Returned hose to its connection and have had no problems since. You may need to a little detective work yourself but I have found that is the best way. Here are a couple links I want you to read over and a short clip on how to fix a leaking refrigerator, I really hope to be of some help here, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have an Amana BRD18V1 or V2, bottom freezer. About every two weeks it leaks water on the floor on the right hand side and i have to defrost the bottom part to get about an inch of ice out. I trust...


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.

My amana frige leaks at the bottom, it is a bottom freezer frige, I moved it lately because I am laying laminate floor, any solutions?


In your shuffling of the refrigerator you may have knocked the condensate drain away from the pain near the compressor that evaporates the water back into the air inside your home. Or you may have the refrigerator leaning in a way that the water pools up near the condensate drain pipe beginning in the rear of the freezer and has frozen over and causing the water to drain over the condensate collector pan behind the rear wall of the freezer.

Maytag side by side fridge freezer leaking water


Your drain plug within the evap area of the freezer is frozen, turn frig off, let sit for day or two with doors open. Once all ice has melted then take rear freezer evap cover off and pour water into try and make sure it drains, if not then unplug drain. This is usually caused by a defrost heater bad or unit not going into defrost when it's supposed to, may be main board.
