Freezer leaks water!

We have an amana br18v1 bottom freezer and it leaks water out the front almost daily. why is this? i've researched to see if there is a recall on this particular model, but came up with nothing. help!

  • clutchtx Nov 23, 2008

    When a repair tech came to fix our leaky bottom-freezer, he said the drain pipe was extremely small (narrow diameter) and was getting clogged with food bits from the refrigerator section. I questioned this, but he said that's all we had to do was thaw/drain/clear it manually.
    The freezer completely freezes up (1" thick ice on the bottom) monthly and leaks onto my floors and I'm fed up. Is there a larger drain tube we can install??

Luvbug, Your refrigerator is "frost free" which means it is automatically defrosts after the compressor runs 8 to 12 hours. The defrost cycle lasts approximately 30 minutes. If it is in normal condition, defrosted water goes through the drain into the drip pan under the refrigerator and then evaporates. The problem you are having is one of the most common - the drain line is clogged up. To fix it you have to remove the freezer drawer, defrost and clean the drain. The drawer removal procedure described in the refrigerator manual book. If you do not have one you can find it there: http://www.amana.com/amana/jsp/manual.do You will see the drain hole on the freezer floor by the rear panel. To defrost it you can use your hair dryer. To make sure it is open, run a cup of very hot water through the drain. Reinstall the freezer drawer and enjoy it! Gendos....post it back

Where does Amana bottom freezer drain discharge to? I have manually defrosted the freezer. Water dropped into drain. Now water leaking out of the bottom at side of unit.

The defrost water drains into a holding pan and is evaporated away. The video displays the most likely problem.

Freezer leaks water out the bottom

sounds like your defrost drain line is clogged or unhooked, you will have to remove everything from the freezer and take the inside back cover off to check the problem.

Our amana bottom freezer refrigerator Model ABB2224DEQ at times leaks onto our kitchen floor. We don't have an ice maker so I am wondering where it would be coming from and what needs to be done to...

This is likely water from the auto defrost operation leaking from the evaporating pan. Sounds like the pan may have a hole in it, or the hose which drains the water into the pan is leaking, The pan is at the very bottom of the unit.

I have an Amana BRD18V1 or V2, bottom freezer. About every two weeks it leaks water on the floor on the right hand side and i have to defrost the bottom part to get about an inch of ice out. I trust...

I assume you mean water leaking on floor of bottom freezer? There should be a small hole in floor in back to drain defrosted water down to pan under unit. This line might be clogged with food or frozen water. Carefully pour some hot/boiling water down tube to clear. You should see it empty into pan under unit where fan evaporates it.

Amana bottom freezer: water leaking & ice build-up

There should be some kind of drain at bottom of freezer compartment to collect and run off any condensate that collects during defrost cycle.. Clean out the drain and snake out the line that leads from it. Right now the liquid is collecting where it should not and it will leak out the gasket when you have enough of it.
