Question about Amana ATB1832AR Top Freezer Refrigerator

Water is dripping into the inside of the refrigerator. Have had a repairman out twice. The first time he had unplugged the drain line. Then he said there was nothing wrong with it. It is getting very wet inside the fridge.

We have water underneath our freezer and inside on the bottom shelf


You probably have a clogged drain line. Look for a drip pan at the bottom of the fridge; it should have a hose that drains into it. Thaw out the fridge like you did before, but this time use an air compressor, bicycle pump, or whatever and try to force air back up that hose to clear the clog.

PLHS267ZA is leaking water from the bottom (freezer side)


I would look under the fridge for a drip pan that might be full, so when it defrost it overflows the pan and runs on the floor. If not that you must have a blockage somewhere in the drain line that runs to the drip pan. Take out the shelves and take off the plastic panels to access the drain and drain line, pour some warm water down the drain to unplug it.

Water dripping from freezer into refrigerator


Hi,Most likely the drain in the freezer is clogged up and frozen. Every time when your fridge automatically defrosting defrosted water dripping inside the fresh food compartment. You have to remove the back panel in the freezer and using a hair dryer defrost the drain which is located under the evaporator coil. Then put very hot water through the drain until it goes free.
Yes, you need to remove the back panel inside the freezer, It should have screws that come out then it should pull off and out.

On your model, the defrost drain hole/line is located inside of the freezer behind that back access panel, just remove that back panel, remove your freezer floor panel FIRST(Has 2 screws in front), that simply pulls out, then you will see the drain hole under the evaporator coil. It may be iced up, you will have to clear all of the ice and run hot water down the drain hole.

Once the back panel screws are removed that panel should just pull off, pull hard. Make sure your refrigerator is unplugged first.

Good luck.

Model ET18NK drain freezes up and water runs down in the inside of the refrigerator box when the refrigerator sits for long periods of time, unused. it is located at a vacation home and just used...


All refrigerators with a frost free freezer go into a deforst cycle automaticly 3 - 4 x a day. As the frost melts it drips into a pan located behind the rear panal in the freezer, ending up in a pan out side the refrigerator underneth, were it evaporates. Debris can clog the line causing the melted frost to back up and eventually drip into the refrigerator. The sure way to clear the path is to remove the back panel (inside the freezer) and remove any forign material in the pan, then blow out the line with compressed air. An easy way may be to pull the plastic drip line off were it comes out of the back of the box and clean/ blow it out from there. The problem with doing it the easy way is that your not removing the clog, just moving it in the freezer pan where it may find its way back clogging the drain again. Unplug the box prior to removing any screws.

I have an amana 18 top freezer that is about 15 years old. I am getting water on the floor of the refrigator, i have unplugged it for 24 hours, and it still does it. No water is in the pan. What do i do as...


No water in the drip pan, water in the refrigerator - this is a classic case of defrost drain issues. If your unit has a little drip cup at the back of the refrigerator (inside) you will notice a hole above it, this is the drain coming from the freezer - When defrost cycle kicks in the heating element melts the frost on the evap coils above it and water drips through the hole and inside your cup in your refrigerator - then it should drain through a tube that extends to the back of your refrgierator through a hole, from there water drips down the drain tube down the pan at the bottom above the compressor so it can later be evaporated with the heat.

What you have is a plugged drain tube - water drips in your cup and overflows down the back of your refrigerator - if you are able to remove this cup and tube, pass a long wire down the drain line to dislodge any debris or whatever is blocking the line - clean your cup and also check for any debris. Also at the back of your freezer panel look for any debris or obstruction to the drain, causing water to back up and leak elsewhere. Once all this is checked, and you put back the cup, water should flow normally and drain fast enough through the drain tube.

good luck

The feeder tube for the ice maker freezes and water leaks inside


First we have to determine if the problem is a faulty water valve. Reason: faulty water valve can continue to supply water even after the IM or door dispenser is finished calling for water causing a drip feed freeze up problem, or water overflow condition in the ice maker (IM). Another common cause is unrelated, but caused by a blocked drain line often resulting in thick ice build up on the bottom of the freezer, water dripping onto the floor, or water dripping into the refrigerator (top freezer mount models only) and freezing near the lights or damper ducts after defrost. Fix for this problem is to remove evap panel and clear freezer drain line with hot water or compressed air. If this is not the case, and water is dripping out of IM supply line, remove IM H20 supply line from IM at back of appliance and see if the water seems to drip out, if so, replace the water valve. If water doesn't drip out at all, replace IM, or IM module depending on the model of refrigerator that you have as contacts in the IM are also responsible for calling for H20 supply. You will have no more problems after this.

There is water dripping down the inside back of the freezer side


Had this happen twice. My problem was the drain line that goes to the pan underneath was plugged. Had to pull it apart to get to the drain and unplug it.

  • the drain line in the freezer may be clogged forcing water to drip into the freezer. clean out the freezer and pour some hot water in the back of the freezer to unclog the drain.
  • another cause of this would be if the door is not sealing properly then the inside of the refrigerator will build up condensation.

Kenmore Top Mount Refrigerator - leaking water from the Cold Control Defrost Timer/Automatic Defrost Control Housing


It freezes up for a few reasons. First the water is not running down fast enough. That is why the wire was added to add heat from the heater to the drain hole. The metal pan under the evaporator coil may not be lined up with the drain hole well enough and holding water there. If that looks ok the drain tube that runs down the inside back of the unit might be slightly restricted. Not much you can do about that. I would make sure that the aluminum wire goes in the hole about 2 inches and that the unit is tilted slightly back to help water flow.
