Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW

1 Answer

Drip pan.... Thank you for the info, yet I've been under this thing quite a few times and I still don't see any pan or tray or even rails for that matter. All is see is coils (dusty....I have cleaned them as best as I could) and the water only freezes in the drain tube because It is clogged. I'm afraid to push anything into it to unclog it since I dont' know where that water leads. Any other helpful hints??? please?!?

If you have a vacuum cleaner try cleaning the coils

The drain tube has to drain to the outside of the frig so the water will evaporate If you do not have an evaporator pan you can always put a cookie sheet etc under the area where the water comes out

Go to the area where the line clogs and get the line clear

what i would do is cut the line and take a turkey baster and force water down the tube to force the water out then I would go to Ace or big box store and get a plastic ferrel fitting to join the two lines back together

    I believe the drain line is so stiff it cannot posibly be crimped and it has to be frozen and thus willnot drain

    once you get this line clear see if you can make sure it does not touch the back wall of the frig and does not touch icemaker etc so it will not freeze

How do i remove the drip tray? Water is leaking onto my hardwood floor.


The drain pan in machines these days aren't designed to be removed, but the issue I am having is I've never seen one full unless I was pouring water down a drain or the drain was clogged and thawed out. Are you sure thats what your problem is? Have you looked in the freezer floor inside to see if there is ice built up there all the way to the front?

Jennair jsp42ppdbda faulty evaporator drip pan - leaking down into freezer compartment


I've got the same problem. After installing a replacement drip pan (W1019913) and disconnecting the thermistor per the enclosed instructions, the problem returned within two months. I just called Jenn-Air customer service and was told that there is a new design for the drip pan this is only available through Jenn-Air, and not through distributors. Therefore the part I purchased in November through a distributor was the old design (even though it was dated 1/27/11).
The Jenn-Air rep agreed to have a tech install the new design under warranty, even though I purchased the unit almost 5 years ago. I'm hopeful that this will correct the problem.
If you still want instructions on how to remove the drip pan, let me know. But I would return the part you've got and ask Jenn-Air do it for free.

My water filter was not clicked in all the way so water leaked and filled up the drip pan under the refrigerator and started leaking out onto my floor before I noticed anything was wrong. I put the water...


Hello Terri,
The pan there is for the defrost water that drains into it durning the defrost cycle,that water eveperates automatically so this water too will evaperate as well may take a bit longer since its more but it will evaperate. Also as you know there is no way to remove that pan,but tomorrow it will be empty anyway

Water dripping into the fridge, was told their might be a clogged drip tray but don't know where it is.


the drip pan is under the unit,, along the edges of some models inside, are little alleys that lead to the drip pan, sometimes they fill with ice and need to be cleaned out , look along the inside walls of the freezer

Ive had my westinghouse moist cold 421 for quite a few years and lately there has been at times water leaking at the inside under the vegetable cripsers . I'm unable to find my user manual but I recall...


The drip tray is all the way at the bottom.Pull of the grill at the bottom of the refrig,tray should be there.

Also there is a hole or tube under your crispers,check that its clear and not clogged with junk.

My refrigerator is leaking water underneath it. the ice maker is not hooked up


Is it leaking water INSIDE the fridge at the bottom - if so that is an indication of a clogged defrost drain - if you have a drip cup in your refrigerator, that connects to a tube at the back of your fridge, to carry the water from the defrost cycle down the drip pan at the bottom.

If you see water OUTSIDE your unit, the only explanation is an overflowing drip pan ! Water from the defrost cycle drains and drips on a pan that sits on the compressor or besides it - the hot air from the compressor will cause water in the pan to evaporate quickly - either through a fan or when the pan is placed directly above compressor. If your model has a fan at the bottom next to compressor, that blows the hot air on it, check to see if it's working when compressor cycle is on.
There is no reason for that drip pan to overflow otherwise, it is quite big enough, and the water from the defrost cycle is usually around 2 ounces and should evaporate quickly.

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
