Ice forming bottom of freezer leaking out the door

Water seems to be coming from a stainless steel lined vent that is on the bottom of the back wall of the freezer compartment. Drips down under the freezer door, episodically, every 48 hours or so, a cup or two of water.

    Yes. Turns out I could have fixed it without taking the cover off just by aiming hot water from a squeeze bottle through the grill to where the drain lies beyond. Thanks.

It is acutually a collector pan for the drain hose. When the refrigerator runs a defrost cycle (about every couple days), that pan collects the water from the ice that is melted and drains it through a hose inside the unit, to a pan under the unit. You will have to pull the back panel off the back of the freezer and melt it with either hot water or a hot blowdryer. Do it until you see the water draining freely into the bottom pan.

GE Side By Side Ice Machine & Water dispenser not getting water


you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.

Stainless Steel GE Profile with Bottom Freezer.


Have you had any cooling problems coincide with the ice problem? if no evidence of temperature variations, you either have a crack in the ice maker mold, causing water to drip into the ice bucket. Or you may have a bad water valve solenoid, not closing completely when the ice maker stops calling for water, overfilling ice maker into the bucket, and further down your freezer.

those are the most common problems, though other odd situations could also be a problem.

Leaking water


In back of the refrigerator behind a removable panel you will find a hose going into the drain pan under the refrigerator. Check and make sure there is no obstruction in the hose which would back up water into the freezer. After the drain hose is cleared the freezer should be defrosted and ice cleared from the drain area in the back. You can direct some hot water with some bleach in it through the drain to insure it flows into the pan.
