I bet you have a water filter in the way. I have run into this before where the pan is suppose to come out the front after taking off the bottom grill. The good part is that it is not critical that this pan be removed. The water will evaporate from the condenser coil heat. But, how do you clean the thing which is what I wanted to do. I reached in with a paper towel and did the best I could.

    "anyone knows what to do with the gushing water"

    Where is the water coming from?

    If the water is coming from inside the freezer and running out the front left corner. The drain is clogged

    Clogged drain:

    1. Take the bottom drawer out of the freezer. Look at the back wall and you may get a partical view of the bottom of the cooling coils. Directly under the cooling coils is where the drain hole is located. You may need a licht and get your head close to see the drain hole.

    2. If this drain area is filled with ice then you won't be able to see the drain hole. Use a hair dryer to remove this ice.

    3. The drain tube could be clogged.

    I have some O2 tubing that I put down the drain hole to clear any blockage. Sometimes I put the tubing down the drain, seal up the top around the tube with tape and a little pressure from my lungs clears the drain.

    4. pour a little water down the drain to make sure it's clear

    Sorry, I should have said oxygen tubeing. Any type of small hose that fits in the drain hole.

Where is the drain pan located on the GE Side by Side Refrigerator I have looked everywhere! Thanks in advance for your help.

why are you looking for the pan,you shouldn't have to do anything with it.the pan is at the bottom of the fridge behind the front kick plate and on some models there isn't a pan at all/the water drains to the bottom frame or floor of the fridge where the compressor is in the bottom back,the water collects there and the heat from the compressor and condenser coil evaporates the water.remove the bottom back panel,lok for the drain line or if it just defrosted you'll see the water sitting in the frame.what's happening that you're looking for the pan?

Have side by side 10 years leaking water on floor in front of refrigerator there is no water connected to refrigerator, cant find an overflow pan under neath...

clogged drain causing the water that cant reach the drain pan underneath to leak on the floor. Unplug fridge and open doors for 24 to melt ice likely clogging up drain. If that doesnt fix, you'll need to call refrigerator repair service

Ice in bottom of freezer.

empty bottom of freezer and run a hair dryer to melt the ice and clear the drain, there is a drain that goes to a pan under your fridge that evaporates the water, make sure your pan heater is in fact wired up, as the factory sometimes leaves these pan heaters disconnected to get the energy efficiency rating for sales.

Water puddles front left of side by side ge profile fridge

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.

Water leaking out on floor

there is a drain hole in the back/bottom of the freezer, check if the fridge is connected to a drain and water drains into the hole, looks as if it is cloged.that is a drain. Use a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water to flush out the drain tube until water will flow out into the drain pan under the refrigerator. (where the air blown over it will cause it to evaporate)

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

The drip pan is located under the front of the frig.
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
