Question about Amana Freezers
We have a full size freezer that has started forming a great deal of ice on the top of the freezer and mostly along where the light bulb is. It exends to the top part of the door and it makes large icicles that freeze down the door. We have defrosted it already but it just continues. No matter how much we scrape it, it comes right back even worse if we don't scrape it off. This is an Imperial UL4000ECW3 made by Amana

Try taking a small piece of solid copper wire strand, loop over defrost heater and extend into drain hole, this is a trick we use to help with this issue by bringing a little heat around the hole. The freezer may be manufactured by Woods Inc, a canadian appliance builder. These did have lots of problems with the water building up between the inner and outer liners, Not much you can do with these either to totally resolve this issue. Make sure the water is going into the drain pan when you pour the hot water.

I looked at the BACK at the bottom underneath of my Sears Kenmore frost free upright freezer and what was causing the ice buildup was very simple. At the factory, the assembler looped the little hose too high and when the water went into the hose it could not get out due to being too high in one spot! An ice dam will form, blocking ALL water coming through
and freezing up any more water coming down giving you a HUGE wad of ice that is scary!!! I just removed the screw holding the loop that holds the hose and put a bit of warm water down the little hole on the INSIDE (Behind the grate) to melt the remaining ice in the tube.You need to take out 4 screws and remove the grate to see this. I could not believe that this was the problem! I haven't had any ice build up since.Now don't tear your freezer apart before you try this trying to fix the compressor, thermostat etc. It may be the only thing wrong with it!

Hi, You will find that your problem relates to the defrost heater in the freezer. You will need to take the drawers out and remove the back panel to access the evaporator. There is a foil heater that lays underneath the evaporator and it will need to be changed. Along with the klixon that controls it. This will ensure that both parts are good. Your problem will then be fixed no more water!

The door seal is at fault. Regardless of the small tear it is not sealing well.
Take a dollar bill and close it in the door. Then pull on the bill to feel resistance.
You will find it pulls easily in some place. That is where your air leak is that is causing the condensation.
Do this about every 6 inches all the way around the seal.
