    DID NOT CORRECT MY PROBLEM. THERE IS NO ICE BUILDUP, EXCEPT ON THE FLOOR OF FREEZER AS MENTIONED BEFORE, AND THERE IS NO SORT OF AUTO DEFROST SWITCH IN THE REFRIG

    I ALREADY TRIED THAT. I TURNED IT OFF ON THE DOOR, RAISED UP THE METAL LEVEL CHECKER AND EMPTIED OUT THE ICE TRAY. ABOUT 15 HRS LATER, THERE WAS ICE ON THE FLOOR OF THE FREEZER. CONSIDERING REMOVING ALL THE SHELVES AND THE REAR PANEL TO CHECK THE DRAIN. THANKS ANYWAYS, RICH

    I also have this problem on this rsw 2400 new in 1997. The problem for me is the ice tray behind the panel. Defrost water goes into metal tray. Metal tray drains down to plastic tray below refer. I spoke to may tag customer service. it is a design problem, resolved by replacing the duck bill valve pn W1 03 09 238. I didn't get a price, i will let my maytag repair guy put it in and hope that solves it. The new valve is longer and wider. Mike Tucson

Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates.If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

Cut the water off to the icemaker if this stops the water build up on floor then you will know it is a leak from icemaker or filter. which i feel sure it is there is no other reason for this much ice to builup that quickly

THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE AUTO DEFROST (IF THE FEATURE IS AVAILABLE) OR ELSE YOU HAVE TO MANUALLY DEFROST IT REGULARLY

    THE AUTODEFROST SWITCH (IF AVAILABLE) MUST BE THERE AROUND THE TEMPERATURE CONTROL KNOB OF THE REFRIGERATOR

    clear the drain channel and so that the defrost water can flow down to the drain pan.

The drain for the auto defrost water is plugged up somewhere.You will need to look at the very back and bottom inside the freezer to see if you can locate it and clean it out.Also you may have to pull the refrig out from the wall and try to get to it from the back.Hope this aleast gets you looking in the right direction.

Water is slowly dripping onto the floor from the bottom of the freezer door. it is as if the door is full of water. any suggestions?


ARe the temperatures good inside the freezer? If they are not near 0° F, that is the cause of the water drip.

If it is nice and cold in freezer, check freezer floor, is there a sheet of ice? you have a clogged defrost drain, clear it or have it cleared for you.

Water from GE Profile Refrig/freezer drips down back inside freezer wall and fills up, bypasses drain and fills up and leaks into floor.


Hi, Is it bypassing the drain or is the drain plugged? The most common is that the drain hole gets iced up and them overflows onto the floor.
Just wanting clarifcation.
