Amana bottom freezer: water leaking & ice build-up

We have a Stainless steel refrigerator with the freezer drawer on the bottom, AMANA model #BRD18V1.

Water leaks occasionally onto the floor on the right hand side of the unit and there is significant ice buil-up on the floor of the freezer that we need to manually remove at least once a month.

Any help out there?
Thanks
Charlie

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.

If we both are on the correct subject then it is possible the water control valve on back of refrigerator is not working. If ice tray is dry then fill with water from a cup and let freeze. If the ice maker dumps the ice let me know and we will go from there. Sea Breeze

Your refrigerator probably has an issue with its "damper control assembly", which regulates cold air coming from the freezer compartment. Contact an appliance service company.

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.

You have to remove the bottom drawer, remove one of the drawer slider mounts on the freezer wall, and remove the rear panel. If yours has an ice maker you will have to disconnect it and remove it also. Unplug it so the water valve does not dump water on you while you are working inside.

Melting/refreezing ice in the ice makes


If the ice is the only item that appears to be melting or defrosting. I would believe the most possible issue. The icemaker is leaking intermittantly into the bin and freezing the cubes inplace.

Regrigerator isn't cooling - freezer is fine....


Make sure there is not a ice build up in the back wall of the freezer.
If so, you have a defrost issue.
Make sure the freezer fan is blowing.
If so, you have a thermistor issue.
