SOURCE: GE built in Fridge does not defrost and freezer ices up

Defrosters are commonly controlled by a primitive timer and this may have a 'dry' and a 'wet' (humid) climate setting that will cause the defroster to cycle generally every 12 or 24 hours.
If set wrong (by accident or on purpose), it can allow too much frost to accumulate before attempting to defrost.
This can cause a gradual buildup of ice.

Also the heating element for the freezer may have failed open so it never heats at all. The connections that need to be checked are often buried between the in- and outside walls.

The timer is probably still OK since you apparently aren't having a problem on the refrigerator side.

SOURCE: GE TFX20JR side by side/water leaks out freezer during defrost

Yes, you are correct, 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 refrig. (where the air blown over it will cause it to evaporate)

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 bottom of freezer and water on floor GE Monogram

I had the same problem. The drain tube is located below the pan below the fins at the rear of your freezer. The drain tube has a trap (s-shaped curve) to prevent air flow out of the freezer. The problem is that water gets in this tube and freezes. I took the sheet metal cover off the back, got a turkey baster and flexible tube, and continuously flushed hot water (after the freezer had been turned off around an hour to thaw). Eventually the plug gave way.

My freezer has ice on the bottom,we keep cleaning it out and the ice keeps coming back


Hi,
I need to ask, what kind of ice are we talking about, ice cubes or a slate? If cubes there is a gage that can be added to the ice maker arm to prevent this. If its a slab or slate, than I would look at the defrost drain system in the back of the freezer to be clogged. If no ice there, is it possible not all the water from the ice maker is getting into the ice maker?
I hope this helps or leads you in the correct direction.

The drain is clogged. Remove the bottom bin out of the freezer. Once done you should see a trough at the back. This trough will be filled with ice, remvoe the ice. Then you have to clear the drain. The best way I know of to do this is to force hot water down the drain with a turkey baser untill water flows freely. Then mix baken soda with water and pour it down the drain. http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/refrigerator-leaking.html

Clogged drain in freezer compartment


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

The drain sometimes all on its own will freeze. Who knows why. The best was to ensure the drain is clear is to manually defrost the refrigerator. You do this by first unplugging the unit. Then empty the contents of the freezer. Use a fan and place it blowing into the freezer for a little over 2 hours. This will make a water mess so have the rags and mop ready.

After the 2 hour manual defrosting session take a toothpick and make sure the drain is clear. Use your baster and hot water to check it for sure. If it is still clogged remove the back panel of the refrigerator and check the end of the drain for debris. Often what happens is there is some unpleasant goo that builds up on the very end of the drain tube and then it dries n place once the catch basin is dry.

Other times the drain freezing over is a sign of an automatic defrosting problem. When it does not defrost the ice builds up on the evaporator coils and eventually it freezes over the drain. Usually when there is and automatic defrost problem the fresh food section warms up, the ice maker stops making ice and things like ice cream get soft.

Give the manual defrost and drain check a try first. If there really is an automatic defrosting problem in 3 to 4 days the symptoms will repeat.

If at that time you need more assistance just respond here and an expert will help you.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Ice build up on bottom freezer


Ice build up on the freezer floor alone, with no ice on shelves or food above the floor, usually indicates a clogged defrost drain problem. when your unit goes into defrost, the melt water is intended to go down a drain tube from the freezer to a pan on the outside bottom of the unit, usually near the compressor. Sometimes these drains are clogged with food debris, other times some of the melt water does not completely drain, and freezes - this build up of ice can then clog the drain. You can unplug the fridge, with both doors open and a fan blowing for 24 hours to temporarily remove the ice and water, but it will return most likely, in which case you would need to have the drain cleared out and / or have a drain heater installed by a qualified refrigerator repair service.

My GE TFX27PF is leaking water out of hte (front ) bottom


It sounds like you could have one or more issue here. the first thing to check would be to listen for the evaporator fan blowing inside the freezer compartment. This will often be a tell-tale sign of a defrosting or ice building issue. As the ice builds up it makes contact with the fan blade on the motor and eventually stopping it completely. And of course if there is ice there will be water, your leak could be coming from a clogged drain pan inside the freezer or drain tube. If this is clogged the water has no where to go but out the front and the bottom of your fridge.Hope this helps. I would call a technician to diagnose it exactly.

Thanks

WATER IN BOTTOM OF FREEZER/TURNS TO ICE FRS28XGCB


its probably the automatic defrost cycle.there should be a drain in the bottom of your freezer,and it must be clogged.The automatic defrost keeps ice from building up in your freezer by melting it,and letting the water run out the drain.If the drain is blocked by something or clogged the water collects,and refreezes.You need to unblock the drain.
