Why is there Water on floor,and ice in bottom of freezer?


Under your frig there is a drip pan that's most likely full and check your drain tube also for clogs probably Iced up. You access the pan from the front bottom.

My drip pan under the frig over flows with water then on to my floor. both fans work. Air flow from freezer to frig and back seams good. Tube going to drip pan is clean. Seals looks good and clean. MOD...


I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool model 6ED25DQFW side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/water dispenser. Water was slowly pooling under the refrigerator under the freezer section. The defrost drain pipe was not blocked, the condenser fan was running, the drip pan was not leaking.
The source of the leak was found to be the icemaker solenoid block plastic body which had a pinhole leak.
To fix requires either plastic welding, or replacement of the solenoid block plastic body.
To access the solenoid block firstly requires removal of the cardboard cover, located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.

Unit ED5DHEXWQ bought 2 weeks ago Drip pan over flows- water not evaporating quickly. Company tech say I need to modify my frig by placing a heater. 2 The refrig side is not gettinG COLD ENOUGH - MY MILK...


The tech is full of beans. The heat from a normally charged refrigerator is more than enough to evaporate water in drip pan.
The indication of improper charge is that obvious. Fridge warm freezer ok would be a coil blocked with ice, however drip pan overflowing is a charge problem, Ask for a field supervisor.

PUMP WILL NOT STOP WHEN YOU PUT POWER ON . PUMP STARTS AS SOON AS YOU PUT THE POWER ON TO PICK A WASH PROGRAM EVEN BEFORE THE DOOR HAS BEEN CLOSED.


I have seen this on my unit. There was water in the drip pan under the dishwasher. Water in the drip pan comes from a leak. In my case, the water valve was getting so old that it was letting too much water into the unit when it was trying to fill. This cause the filling station to over flow into the drip pan.
A quick fix - I removed the water from the drip pan under the unit and I was able to turn down on the supply valve in the basement to limit how much water could come in. This allowed the unit to run without overflowing. I will replace the water valve soon.

Other possibilities, the float device used to detect too much water in the drip pan or too much water in the unit is stuck in the too full position. Or the pump out pump is stuck and not moving water.

Water leaks from under the middle but not all the time maybe once or twice per month


condensation normally drains thru a tube at the bottom of the frig to a drip pan under the condenser coil (under the frig) .. the water normally just evaporates from the pan .. if there is too much moisture in the frig, that usually means a door is ajar (not closing completely) or the seal on the door is not sealing properly .. warm moist air from the room getting in will cause too much condensation .. the drip pan may overflow ... you should check the drip pan for damage (clean the condenser while you are down there) .. also check the tube that carries the condensation (back bottom of the frig) .. it has a one way valve (lets water out only) that becomes stuck sometimes and needs cleaning.. if there is a large amount of moist things in the frig then that an cause the problem as well .. just put those things in plastic bags or containers to eliminate that problem ..

Drip pan needs emptying; had repairman out for other issues, now fridge keeps overflowing


The accumulated ice you saw is of course the source of the water. The refrigerator will eventually rid itself of the excess ice and the problem will therefore disappear on it's own after a while. The drip pan is normally filled with only a small amount of water, and that is dried up by the condenser cooling fan under the fridge. The pan is removable from most units, but not without making a mess. I suppose you can make and clean up the mess one time and be done with it.

GE refrigerator tfx27zp or 25zp or 22zp not sure.


The drip pan is located under the front of the frig.
FIX
open both doors, remove the panel that is across the bottom of the fridge( there are release tabs over the left and right front corner areas close to the hing sides


after removing the panel you should see a tray that slides on rails under the fridge

remove the panel and inspect to see (use a flash light)if you can see the drain tube


I believe your drain tube is freezing up somewhere inside the frig

If you can determine where this drain tube fishes up through the back inside wall of the frig

remove all of the trays and observe the back panels there should be some type of collector tray

near the frig light Some models have a hot bulb to do the defrost

I suggest that you tun frig off with both doors open take a hair dryer and blow hot air where you think the drain is located to melt any ice and look down in the drain pan to see if it starts draining

Hope this helps

Good luck ( ps cal ge customer service and give model number I bet they have a design poblem

If they do they may have a work around

God Luck
