Question about GE Profile 25.6 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - Stainless-Steel

1 Answer

I have freezer that is not frost free and is accumulating a frozen block of ice at the bottom of the freezer side. If there is a drain I do not know where to find it. There is no apparent bottom pan for the water to drain to? The ice maker is not hooked up and has not been for years as we do not use city water any longer.

SOURCE: water accumulating in bottom of freezer and leaking onto floor

Yes the drain is clogged and the water that supouse to go through became ice so it make it worse.Put hot water in the drain hole until it runs through,it'll go to an evaporative pan on top of the compresor to keep it warm and vaporize the water.

The water can only come from 2 places, the drain is blocked or the ice maker is over filling.The temps are too good to have any other things going wrong. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: build up of ice on bottom of freez

Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)

SOURCE: water pooling in the bottom freezer

You most likely have a blockage in the condensate drain line.You should turn off the frig.and empty the freezer,take a hairdryer and melt the ice on the bottom of the freezer.somewhere in the back on the bottom you will see a small drain under the evaporator.you may have to remove the cover of the evaporator to find it.once you locat the drain its just a matter of blowing out the line with a piece of 3/8ths plastic tubeing.

Top drawer of freezer seems to work but large bottom drawer not freezing even at -5degrees. Can this be fixed?


This problem seems to be two sided. A refrigerator defrost it is supposed to take the water from defrost down a pipe located behind the freezer rear wall to a pan below the refrigerator where there is a fan blowing warm air over the water to evaporate back into your home or business. If that drain is blocked your refrigerator will accumulate a large block of ice and frost behind the rear panel of freezer and temperatures will warm considerably in fresh food compartment and freezer. Here is one site I want you to read over=> Leaking Refrigerators Just What may Be Happening and here=> Leaking Refrigerators here is a link to a service manual=> LFX25960xx Service Manual Let me know if this service manual is close enough to your model number. At this point I am looking for air blockage behind the rear panel of freezer. If air is being blocked by ice and frost you can use a hair drier to help speed you up while melting ice. If drain is blocked use whatever you can to open the drain line mentions on the links I sent you to and let me know what is found, Thanks Sea Breeze

main reason for lots and lots of frost is door seals not tight all round.look along the length of them to make sure and adjust by pulling/pushing into shape,also are the doors level???? would also cause doors not to be airtight.(adjusters/feet are under both outside corners).

Frost free freezer with ice in the bottom and water dipping off bottom door hinge


Frost Free Freezer have an automatic defrost, which is essentially a heating element which melts any ice. If your door seals are in poor condition or something is preventing the door from sealing the ambient air may be melting the ice more than the drain can accommodate. Check the drain in the bottom of the freezer. Humidity can also cause more water to accumulate, especially if the door seals are not sealing.

Frozen water in bottom of freezer


Every ten to twelve hours your refrigerator activates a heating element around the evaporator to defrost the accumulation of frost that develops on the evaporator. Behind the back panel there is an evaporator pan it has a rubber grommet with a hole in it this is your defrost drain hose it is clogged. Unplug or switch refrigerator off at breaker panel, remove panel covering evaporator area (rear panel in freezer), use a hair dryer or hot water to unclog defrost drain a turkey baster works well to make sure the hose is unclogged.
the water that drains down this hose accumulates in the defrost drain pan in the base of the refrigerator under normal operation the heat from the refrigeration system evaporates this water. The drain pan has a limited capacity so do not poor more than 20-20oz of hot water down the hose after you unclog it. If you poor to much it wont hurt anything just make a mess youll have to clean up.

Water/freezing to ice at the bottom of the freezer MZD2766ge


sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all that ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youll melt everything) or by pouring hot water down the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

Is the frost build-up in my freezer normal? Why do I have ice in forming the the bottom of my frost free freezer?


The drain has most likely frozen over. It is at the bottom behind the back panel inside the freezer. You will need to remove all of the ice and run hot water down the drain until it is clear.
