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 refrigerator defrost timer is supposed to cycle every eight hours. Instead it takes about 14 hours to cycle around back to the defrost mode. The defrost mode does last for the proper 20 minutes....


Relax, some people exagerate was all I was saying.
Anyhow, go to a good parts store and ask for a Supco EDT (Electronic Defrost Timer) replacement as they are more reliable and not much difference in price.

Frost builds up in the back of the bottom freezer (Amana ARB224RCW refrigerator) We have defrosted it, but the frost builds back up in 2 weeks. We don't think the freezer is overloaded.


ITS NOT OVERLOADED. YOU HAVE A DEFROST PROBLEM. ONE OF THREE THINGS ARE NOT WORKING. TIMER, DEFROST THERMOSTAT, OR THE HEATER. THIS SHOULD BE CHECKED BY A QUALIFIED TECH. GOOD LUCK

My amana side by side refrigerator is leaking on the freezer side ..puddle on floor or starts melting on its own


Defrost drain is clogged with ice and overflows from defrost. Lower section of freezer at the bottom area of the freezer back wall.

The inside of the refrigerator get full of water condensation(lots)


It is not condensation

The drain at the bottom of the freezer under the coils is clogged. Remove Icemaker if you have one, remove bottom floor of freezer, remove back panel of freezer. Use hairdryer to melt ice. ALL ICE MUST BE REMOVED. Use hot water and a turkey baster to get ice out of drain hole located about middle under coils. Be patient, do not chip ice with sharp tool. After ice is removed pour hot water down drain hole. Water must come out in drain pan under refrigerator(you may have to take front grille off to get to pan)

If Ice returns after a few weeks, you need to look at defrost thermostat which is usually clipped on cold coil at back of freezer. This part or the defrost timer could be defective.

Ice at bottom of freezer


Make sure defrost drain is completely cleared of ice and anything else obstructing it. Pouring hot water in it is correct, but make sure it is going all the way through to defrost pan under unit.

Freezer not freezing properly, ice on back wall


Ice on the back wall indicates a problem with the defrost cycle. The ice builds up and starts to choke off the air flow, so your symptoms would indicate that may be happening.

Defrost problems are usually any of the three components, the heater element, the defrost termination temp switch, or the defrost timer.
