Amana ASD2626HEB ice maker leaking into bin


either there is ice formed inside the fill tube where the water goes into the ice maker and spraying all over the place when the ice maker tries to fill, or the ice maker mold is cracked letting it leak out.

Emerson ice maker not freezing ice, making small cubes and they are soft and mushy.. seems to not freeze ice solid and takes forever to drop ice


When was the last time you cleaned it by running ice machine cleaner through it. After a period of time algea, or slime will form on the chill plate where the ice is made. Sometimes its invisible to the eye, but it doesn't mean its not there. When this happens the machine will freezse the water, and when the ice tries to slide forward to the cutting grid, it catches on the chill plate. There are no sensors in the machine to tell it that this is happening and so the machine moves forward and starts running more water across the plate, which in turn runs across the ice caught on the chill plate melting it and using it as a ramp to fall into the bin melting the ice there as well. So, try cleaning it before taking any further steps, then if the problem persist feel free to get in touch.

Water collects in the fresh meat compartment (in refrigerator section). Ice forms on the bottom (under the fresh vegetable bins) of the refrigerator.


Your drain is likely plugged and not allowing the defrost water to drain out. You will need to remove the rear freezer panel and thaw the drain. I would recommend installing a drain heater while you have it apart. They are inexpensive and easy to install. They come with installation instructions.

Water drains to the bottom INSIDE the refrigerator and ice forms on the bottom of the freezer compartment


The defrost drain hole in the small tray at the back of the freezer is frozen over. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the shelves and bins from the freezer. Carefully break up the visible ice and dispose of it.
Use a hair dryer to defrost the drain hole. It will be a slow process. Be patient.

Ice on bottom of the freezer


Your drain is blocked causing the ice in the bottom of the freezer.
The drain is located about 7 inches up from the bottom rear of the freezer.
Just below the back freezer panel.
Turn the fridge OFF.
Remove the bottom bins.
Take a hair dryer and thaw the ice in the drain.
Pour 1/4 cup of bleach in the drain line.
Problem solved.

Water runing down back side of icemaker and forming icicle.


If it is running down the back of the icmeaker then you need to make sure the inlet tube is properly installed into the fill cup on the icemaker. If the tube is in the right place then your icemaker fill level needs to be adjusted.

Kenmore Elite 795 75542401


I replaced my "entire" ice cube maker (tube,hoses,water pump, ice maker) and it still pooled water at the bottom. I removed the back panel in the freezer and noticed the ciols go through a defrost cycle and water forms in tray under coils. I removed the lower panel on rear of fridge -and found a drain hose near the water solenoid/pump. I blew compressed air into the hose and hopefully unblocked it so it can drain into the pan not the freezer.
