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.

SOURCE: Ice build up on bottom of freezer. Water leaks out.

Your problem is possibly one of two things. The ice maker is leaking or the defrost tray behind the rear panel inside freezer back wall is clogged with ice or something else. If you know its not the ice maker unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel to see if the drain is blocked there, Let me know, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: 10 yr old GE side by side: freezer is leaking

Your drain is frozen up and so every time unit goes into defrost the water refreezes in the freezer's bottom. You either have to shut fridge off completely and let it dethaw or use hot water and an ice pick to hurry up the process. The drain is located in the very back of freezer. You will have to pull out the bottom drawer to see it. Good luck

SOURCE: why does water occasionally leak from bottom of

There is a pan at the bottom of the unit. It catches the defrost cycle water and the heat from the comp. and condensor helps it evaporate. But, it's plastic. Mice have probably chewed holes in it trying to get at the water...They must have water to survive, right? Remove it and you'll see the holes....Then, replace it or epoxy the holes in it with plastic layering from old butter containers etc.

SOURCE: Leaking water and ice build-up in freezer

There's a drain hole in the freezer side behind the bottom drawer in the back wall that must be clogh ; put hot water into it untill melted the ice and keep pouring water to clean the drain (don't worry , the water goes to an evaporative tray) .Keep the drain clean by putting every 3/4 months half a cup of clorox or bleach.

my model is not exactly the same but check for this this anyway:
Take a flash light & check for ice in the back vent underneath the very bottom shelf in the freezer. If you see ice in there, completely defrost until the ice is gone & the plastic drip hole is unobstructed. The leak on mine was happening because that hole had frozen over & caused excess water to flow into the bottom of the freezer & out the bottom of the door instead of through that hole.

Where is drip pan on profile side-by-side


That is from your defrost drain either being clogged with food, or covered with ice. Behind the back wall in the freezer is a drain that empties underneath the fridge. If that drain gets blocked or froze over then the water will dump into the floor of the freezer and out the door gasket.

There is a drain hole in the back of the freezer on the bottom. Get back there with some hot water. Most of the time it is just lime build up. Unless you know what feel back there. Another way is to move the freezer out and from the back side you can see the drain line. It just pulls right off
