This could have been due to leaving door open by accident so excess ice formed. water just evaporates with heat from the compressor

Traulsen refrigerator drain pan sizzles as the hot water is being evaporated. what can absorb and/or safely deflect this hot water as it hits the pan?

The problem is not in your drain pan, the problem is why is your drain pan getting hot enough to sizzle water as it hits it?

Are there hot spots on the cabinet? That would be a sign that the condenser grill is not able to transfer heat out of the sealed unit compartment. Which could mean a dirty condenser grill or back panel. Are items stored behind the unit that is affecting air flow? Is the compressor fan working and pushing air across the condenser grill and compressor.

Condensation on ceiling of refrigerator (under the freezer). Ice crystals in small crate. Hot, humid weather now. Thanks! Hana

wipe down the moisture and if there is a switch which says "saves energy" or "reduces
moisture" then turn it on. (this is a mullion heater to reduce condensation) Also check
door seal for gap (this can sometimes be adjusted by light heating with a hair dryer
or replacing the seal itself). Hope this helps.

Waterleaking from freezerinto bottom of fridge

First check your door and make sure it's closed all the way. Next check the door gasket for rips. What happens is that the moisture in the air is getting in to your frige and condensing on the evaporator coil.
The water then goes down a drain hose to a re-evap pan. Your pan is filling up too fast. Or maybe some one is holding the door open too long. Best of luck!

Brand new fridge. I have a bad smell like urine comming out from the bottom front. is this a leak.. fridge is staying cold. this smell started a week ago. Fridge is 2 months old

smell is urea,it is a gas produced when plastics get hot,it will go away in time,but also check the drain for a blockage (syringe with clorine bleach)and if fitted, wipe out the condensate pan with clorine
last make sure the door seals fit all round as iif not flush any condensate will drip out from the front bottom.

Water leaking in from freezer into main refrig at the back

Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM or COPPER solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

Water is dripping from the freezer compartment into the fridge compartment.

You have a blockage in your condensate defrost line or the pipe that fill the tray below the refrigerator is missing the condensate collector pan that uses the heat from the fan to evaporate the condensate back into the air inside your home. Or this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of may see ice build-up, melt ice with hair dryer, you will see a pan below evaporator, melt ice in pan, dry water up in pan with towel, now you should see drain hole in pan that leads to drain tube, pour some hot water in pan, wait a couple minutes, wipe up water and repeat this step 2-3 times, once you have done this use a wet and dry vacuum cleaner to vacuum out the gunk or blockage in the drain line. Now it is cleaned out! Put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again.

I get a puddle of water inside of the the refrig every a couple days, I have turn off the refrig, and blow with the fan for over 5 hours, hoping that will solve the issue, however that didn't work.

check the seals for leaks. condensation from warm air leaking into the fridge through bad seals collects on the inside. also, if condensation collects on the evaporator coils, it'll freeze. then when it goes into defrost mode, all of the frost and ice melts into a condensate pan under the fridge. if the tube to the pan is blocked, the condensate stays in the fridge. so, check the seals and check the condensate tube.

GE refregerator

this is a drain issue..check to see if you have a plastic drain trap going into back of refrig . its located about middle of rear of box. this is where your water drains out of and down to drain pan. this gets filled with food particles and such and stops up flow of water..remove by twisting and pulling out slightly..clean out and re=install...if you do not have this..go and remove freezer back will need to open drain and clean out trough under evaporator..use hot water and continue until water flows down into the pan..
