The defrost is not working.Or the ice frost is got collected on the evaporator cooling the freezer section.Try manual defrost procedure first.The procedure is as follows:---
First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. If the same problem occurs then it's defrost problem. The defrost board and the defrost thermostat/heater is not functioning properly and it has to be checked and replaced.

    For getting it manual defrost,this is the only procedure and this also resets internal circuit board.In most of the cases this helps.
    There is no other procedure to manually defrost.Yes you can use hair dryer to manually defrost,but in that also you need to disassemble the freezer and locate the ice frost ,you have to turn the unit completely off and locate the frost in fridge part.And then use hair dryer to melt the ice,this is quick procedure ,but in hair dryer procedure, you need to disassemble refrigerator parts.But in manual defrost procedure,you just have to unplug the unit from main power outlet.So its advisable to do manual defrost procedure,as its safe .--------------Thanks.Helpmech.

Amana freezer forms ice on the bottom. We have taken it apart, cleared ice from coils and drain, turned down freezer temp, but it still happens. Fridge works fine. Any other ideas?


When you see that ice forms on the bottom of your freezer it is most likely means that the drain hose of the fridge is blocked.
You will need to take the panel inside the freezer off, clear all the ice and pour hot water into the drain hole until you hear the water coming out at the beck where the compressor is located.
The next step would be running a 1/4" hose thru that hole.
Good luck.

Water in refridgerator


Have a look inside fridge compartment (especially the "roof", if it's a top-mount freezer) & see if you can see any ice build-up (look inside vents that allow cold air into fridge from freezer section. Also, if top-mount freezer, look inside the freezer compartment for ice build-up on "floor", inside vents, or on back wall. These symptoms, combined with water dripping from lots of the "roof" of fridge section (in a top-mount freezer model), can mean several different problems, so best to re-post with more info/symptoms included.
If there's no ice build-up (& the dividing area between fridge & freezer sections isn't particularly cold, which otherwise might indicate hidden ice build-up), it can be as simple as a plugged or obstructed drain tube, which is VERY COMMON. Easiest solution for this latter problem is to use a flexible plastic tube (think similar type as attached to aquarium air pumps), stuff it into drain hole, and blow on the other end. Sometimes you have to blow quite hard to clear an obstruction or complete blockage. If you can't clear the drain tube, it's likely a different problem. Again, a re-post with more info/symptoms will help narrow it down.

probably an ice buildup around the drain tube not allowing proper flow thru to the drain. Try defrosting fridge for a while so the entire ice mass defrosts in between fridge and freezer

I have an Amana ATB1830ARB that is leaking from the inside top back of the fridge...I think it has something to do with the autodefrost...I have a container underneathe to collect the dripping...


What I would do is find the drain hole inside the evaporator and unclog it. The water from defrost operation is not draining properly. themobilian_2466.jpg
To keep ice from forming in the hole a neat trick is to attach a wire from the heater down into the entrnace of the hole to prevent the ice from forming. Basic Ice Box 101

Water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer


the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.

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.

Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it


A bad freezer door seal causes condensation that freezes at the bottom of the unit. I realize you said the drip pan was full of ice, but if the drain is clogged, that will happen. If that unit has the pan at the very bottom, condensation can also contribute to this.
