Re: drain pan under ge sideby side fridge
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.

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?
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
What is a "drain plug"??? Never seen one on a fridge ;) Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section underneath the evaporator coil. Make sure water drains when you pour it in. Good luck! :)
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.
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.
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)
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
