Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
The compartment drain is clogged either with ice or debris. Do lengthy manual defrost on the unit by removing the contents and then placing a fan blowing into the unit for more than 2 hours. You must make sure that any ice that has formed in the drain has thawed or the problem will repeat.
Look at item 8 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5170439&diagram_id=1352399#d1352399

The drain that is most likely clogged is in the center of the tray or just below it in the compartment.

The compartment drain itself consists of items 1, 2, and 3 of this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5170439&diagram_id=1352400#d1352400

The tube that gets clogged is item 6 of the link above. Clean out the drain and the tube.

I clear it with a piece of copper wire by gently pushing it through the drain. You can use a plastic Zip / cable / spot tie also. Before you place the unit back into service make sure you can pour a cup of water into the drain and it clears rapidly.

You should be able to do this without the aid of an in home service person.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kelly

Amana Bottom Freezer ARB220CW Ice forms on the bottom of freezer and water drips out of door


This is most likely caused by a blocked defrost drain behind the rear panel of your freezer. Either ice or sludge has blocked the drain and now when your refrigerator goes into defrost it has no where to go but the bottom of fridge and onto floor.

Water freezing on floor of freezer and leaking on to floor in front of freezer?


I have narrowed my similar problem (with a KitchenAid) down to a leak in the ice maker refill line. To test if this is your problem also, scrape the ice out, then turn off your ice maker (raise the lever as if it is full) and see if ice no longer forms down at the bottom over the next few days.

Water leaking from inside the freezer


if the bottome of the freezer floor is frozen then the most common cause is that the defrost drain is cloged, the back wall will mostlikley need to be removed and defrosted, then i use hot water & a long zip tie to make sure the drain is clear, don't use anything too hard as to punch a hole in a drain hose.

Water leaking and ice in bottom shelf of freezer


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.

Admiral HMG 62163 water leaking internally & freezing in lower basket


good attempt, its actually a clogged drain thats backing up and your drain water is not able to leave refrig so it falls to bottom of freezer floor and eventually out the door. romve the items from the freezer and take the lower back wall off form inside, directly under the evaporator under all that ice there is a drain hole, youll need to clear that hole of iec( pouring boiling water down until you get a free flow of water then you can reassemble uint problem solved
