How to clean the drain pan on General Electric sidebyside_refrigerator TFX20JRBB WW

Fridge is smelly and I've cleaned it. Wondering if it's the drain pan, but can't seem to find it. Only coils when looking under the front and motor is in the back. Where does the water drain to?

Try putting an open can or two of coffee inside. My mother's freezer had gotten unpluged and it was full of fish. She put cans of coffee inside and shut the door a couple of days later she took them out and the freezer did not stink anymore. Hope it works for you.

Check the connection of the electrical harness to the fan motor. If it is fully connected and the motor still does not run replace the fan motor. The fan MUST operate at the same time as the compressor to properly cool the system. Spin the fan blade by hand with he power off. If it turns with any resistance the bearings are dry and in most cases the motor is replaced.

If you clear the drain, the water will not fill up again. (try hot, but not boiling, water, forced into the drain hole with a turkey baster) When drain is clear, water will run into the drain pan located near the compressor. The fan will cause that water to evaporate.

The problem is most likely the water control valve on the rear of your refrigerator. You can test the ice maker by filling with water and let freeze. If ice dumps then the water valve must be replaced. Your model has 3 different choices of water control valves. If the ice maker does nothing but freeze the water and not cycle or dump the ice then I would say the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. Thanks, Sea Breeze

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

The drain pan under my refrigerator stinks really bad how can i remove it to clean it


The drain pan can be removed by lifting up the refrigerator and removing the four torex screws on the bottom of each side of the refrigerator. Use 2 pieces of 2x4 to hold up each side of the fridge while removing these screws. After removing the screws the bottom panel will separate from the refrigerator and you can remove the drip pan from the panel as it isn't attached by screws. The pan is VERY fragile and removing the drip pan is a two person job. I recommend just pouring bleach into the drip pan to kill any bacteria causing the smell by removing the back panel which will be held on by several quarter inch screws. You'll see the white drip pan on the right hand side of the fridge looking from the back.

The way to check that everything is clear pour some water over the evaperator coil in the freezer and see that the water drains very quickly. Also you could use a can of compressed air that you would use to clean the keyboadr and what not on your computer and blow it in drain and clear anything remaining

How do i remove the drain pan to clean and where is it located?


It's much easier to clean in place since they are not usually designed to be removed. It's underneath the freezer/fridge and is accessed at the back behind the cardboard cover.

Refrigerator smells horrible , but there is NOTHING spoiled in it.


You might have something smelly in the defrost drain pan. The easiest thing to do would be to take the back off the fridge and see if the defrost drain pan smells bad...if so just clean it out with soap and hot water. don't use anything too strong smelling to clean it though, you don't want your fridge to smell like bleach or pine sol.

Good Luck!

Hi,
I have the same problem with the odor. I took the back off and discovered the drip pan was full of stagnant dirty water. This place is bacteria heaven. The problem I have now is that i cant seem to find a way to remove the pan without taking the motor out and everything. Any suggestions?
