Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a little hole in the water hose in the back of my fridge. When you go to get water or the fridge fills with water to make ice the the hose sprays water from the hole in the hose. Is there a repair kit I can use to fill the hole or do I need to buy a new hose. If I need to repair the hose is it easy to fix?

You need a new hose, as yours is worn out from age. Hardware stores usually have tubing for such repairs. Turn off the water supply, unclamp the hose from both ends. Take the dead hose to the hardware store to match it up. Get two new clamps, too. Then replace the hose. A fairly easy job.

Puddle on floor


dear Damian sounds like the drain from the freezer is clogged you need to unclogg it and make sure the water flows through. Now if its not visible you need to unplug the fridge take out the shelves and unscrew the back panel.Then at the bottom of the evaporator (the winding pipes ) there should be a block of ice which needs to be defrosted until you see the drain hole that must also be free of ice and that will be the hardest part. To unclogg the ice from the hole you will need some hot water to pour into the hole let it melt a bit then sponge it out and repeat process until the water flows directly through. hope this helps good luck. regards Tony

Unable to locate drain hose, please help.


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you need any further assistance.

Amana Fridge isn't filling the ice tray with water...=/


it seems to me (no expert) that you have an ice buildup in the tubing to the freezing portion of that unit. I can only suggest to turn off the Refrigerator for a little while, an hour or two at most, and see if the tubing thaws.

The refrigerator is dripping water at the bottom of the fridge. Everyday we walk by the fridge and see lots of water dripping from the fridge.


Hi, The defrost drain is plugged. Remove the rear panel inside the freezer section and locate the drain hole. Remove all the ice and flush the drain out with hot water to make sure it is open. Some models require an after market drain heater kit. If you will get me a model 3, I can look this up and let you know if you need the kit.

Amana ARB8057CSR Bottom Freezer Ice Maker Arm is broken & stuck


If water still continues going to the Ice Maker unplug the pair of wires on the back of the refrigerator that send water up to the ice maker. Now I see I am a little late answering your post, because I just happened to run across it. I was not here when you first posted the problem. Just let me know if you still need help, Thanks Sea Breeze

The drain line that removes water after the defrost cycle is plugged. Instead of draining down the hose and ending up in the pan underneath the fridge, it is draining to the back on the inside, ending up under the drawers. Pull the pan out from the bottom, locate the hose that empties water there. Blow air up it. Compressed works the best. It may be plugged with ice as well, so turn it off for a little before you try this, to thaw the ice. If this doesn't work or you cant do it, then you need to remove the back panel in the freezer compartment, find the drain hole and stick something in it, like a piece of wire to remove the blockage. A good way to test this, is after you have found the drain hole, pour a little water in it, it should pour out into the pan underneath.
