SOURCE: 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

I have the same problem,warranty just ran out but its been
leaking on and off for ages,must be this model.This much Ive figured out,what
happens is the drain hole gets blocked from ice freezing over the hole at the
back of freezer, the drain water has to go somewhere, since it cant leak out of
the drain hole where it suppose to it ends up pooling under the vege
compartment before ending up on the kitchen floor.Now if this is your only
problem,someone suggested to me to run a piece of copper wire from the
defrost heater to the drain hole so no ice can build up there,hence no more
leakage.To do this you'll have to take the back panel off and see for
yourself,I did this and Im a novice.Make sure you turn off and unplug the
fridge first and wait for it to defrost.
Now I think I have other things wrong with mine,after leakage problem the refrigeration compartment wont cool anymore but the freezer part remains working as usual.Ive nailed this down to one of the following not working... Thermostat / timer / defrost heater.So one or more of these needs replacing.Im just trying to look for a manual which shows the nuts and bolts or the refrigerator (not the "How to use" type manual which I have).

Chances are you have a bad seal around the door if it's leaking from the inside which causes the ice to form as well, or if it's leaking from under the freezer you lave a bad heating element that evaporates the water collected in the pan under the freezer or you have a clogged hose that goes to the pan under the freezer which also causes the ice to form because the water has no place to go. Defrost and try to find a way to blow out the hose that goes from your freezer to the pan under the freezer and that should take care of your problem.

Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section
underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water)
Make sure water drains when you
pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the
unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)
