Water leaks into the freezer

I have a GE LB 18 bottom freezer. Both frig and freezer cool well. BUT water leaks into the freezer from a hole in the top at the back and freezes on the freezer floor. Something wrong with the evaporation thing? Help please!

GE side by side, GSS22UFMWW, water dispensor does not work, when I try it water leaks from the bottom of the frig. I can hear it pumping.


Turns out there is actually a small drain hole on the bottom of the freezer where condensation and such goes. Take out your bottom drawer/shelf and look in the back of the freezer.

Pulled out the bottom white tray that is under the wire shelving and at the back of the freezer is a small hole. Pour in a cap full of bleach and then 1 cup of boiling water. There can be condensation builds up and clogs the hole.

Is this a self defrost model? Frost inside the freezer could be an air leak around the door gasket. Remove the back panel in the freezer and completely defrost the coils. Is the fan running in the freezer. That will make the frig not be cool. With the door closed peek in the gasket to make sure the light is shutting off, this will warm a frig also.

Water collects on shelves and below the crisper bins at bottom


Your defrost drain hole is frozen closed.
Remove the back freezer panel and defrost the ice with a hair dryer.
Once the drain is clear poura 1/4 cup bleach in the drain hole.
