amana freezer defroster

3 posts in this topic

My 11-year old Amana side-by-side model number SZD25N2W is leaking water onto the floor.  It appears to be a problem with the defrost cycle of the freezer.  How would I repair?

Access the defrost drain system starting in the freezer and clear it out all the way to the drain pan under the frig. Something has it stopped up, remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer and start at the drain trough under the evaperator coil.

I'd take out the inside back wall of the freezer and get some eyeballs on the defrost thermostat. If it's puffed-out or tests open in continuity, replace it.
