Do all refrigerators have the problem of food freezing in certain spots?


its most likley the refrigerator you have now (kenmore) is a Amana. They were one of the few that made bottom freezers. Sears makes nothing they contract and have the kenmore name put on it. From what I see there are certain issues with all freezer bottom refrigerators. The most common is the top is not cold enough at times. some units like the LG have a frost problem in the freezer and thats due to air getting in there some way. With refrigerators they all have some kind of small issue that may hapen to them. and thats not saying there bad. Most is due to them being made more efficent and having more and more electromics and features that customers want. so its not what brand is better then the next its what you want in a fridge and how much your willing to pay. I feel the thing that makes one better over the other is how the manufacturer backs there product. Hope it helped you out

Fridge & freezer work fine but there is water running out from under it. no ice maker on this model.


the freezer has a defrost timer on the evaporator coil to keep it from freezing up and restricting the air flow to the box. It may simply be going into defrost mode to often and filling up the condensate pan. The adjustment on the timer is internal near the rear and should be done by a servvice tech

Exploded parts diagram for your fridge:

I understand your frustration. Below are some diagrams and troublshooting aids. If you look at the exploded parts diagram link and select the Wiring Information page, you'll see the defrost timer is on the FF harness, which is the "Fresh Food" compartment.

Next, click in the "Controls" page. Item #12 is the defrost timer. It looks like it is in light assembly / cover in the fresh food compartment as it has 2 light bulbs shown - and the freezer has only 1.

Amana bottom freezer problem


It sounds like the condenser coil might be freezing up. This happened to me on my bottom freezer. The cooling part of your fridge is only in the back of the freezer compartment. The cold air from the freezer blows up through a vent in the back to the fridge and comes out at the top. If the coils do not defrost (which is what happened with mine) the air flow is blocked by the ice and can't get to the fridge compartment. Your freezer will still be cold but your fridge won't. If you pull the plug on it and time things right you can defrost the coils but this will only postpone the problem. Both will work for awhile again until the coils ice up again. You can also pull out the freezer drawere and try to defrost the coil with a blow dryer. You have to disconnect the icemaker and pull out the back panel behind the freezer to get to it though.

Amana BX20RW Refrigerator slightly warm freezer not freezing


Check the thermostat, to make sure that it is working properly. The theremostat is a long wire in the top of the freezer up near the fan. If that is bad it will not let your freezer cool correctly
