leaking refrigerator


I have water pooling on the bottom of my fridge under the crisper drawers. I have read that the drain line is probably clogged. I cant find the drain line to rod out. Are there two, one for the fridge and one for the freezer? I have a 14 yr old Amana with the freezer on top and fridge on bottom, no water or ice dispenser. Thanks for any help

buffalo ny: i don't have an amana, but here's what i've done: if it's below 40 degrees outside, you're in luck for free food storage outside. otherwise throw a big cookout and then use an iced picnic cooler for the food. give extra food to the neighbors on the day before their payday shopping. completely defrost for 24-48 hours with a 20" fan blowing and old towels collecting water. clean the fridge inside and the outside fins need a careful cleaning. on mine they are underneath the front floor level grill. or cheat and run the defrost cycle timer extra cycles if you can advance it with a screwdriver. but you still will have internal ice problem like i had. do not replace food until your digital food thermometer sitting in a coffee mug of water is 35-40F. and you may seek true wisdom free at: http://fixitnow.com /

Typically one, and it's usually in the back of the freezer. You have to take all the food out of the freezer, and remove the shelves and ice maker if equipped. Remove several screws to remove the metal plate that covers the back of the freezer.
That exposes the evaporator (tubes, and very, very sharp fins). The drain is typically in the back, in the center. You will probably have to thaw the ice which is covering the top of the drain.
